Monsters, Inc.: DVD & Blu-Ray :: Review & Discuss It

Coming out on November 10, 2009 is Disney Pixar’s Monsters, Inc. on DVD & Blu-Ray. We got our copy early, so we could review it properly for y’all. While the DVD is pretty standard (if you saw the movie in theatre, you’ve pretty much already watched the disc), the Blu-Ray disc is absolutely awesome! Check out our review, below.

Plot A lot

Most of you already know the story behind Monsters, Inc., but just in case you don’t, here’s a quick recap. The movie takes place in a city of monsters called Monstropolis, which is powered by an energy company called Monsters, Inc.. Inside the company’s factory are countless doors that act as portals to kids’ closets so that monsters acting as “scarers” can go in he children to scream. Kids’ screams are what power the entire city. The one law all scarers abide by is that children are poisonous and no contact between them and the monsters is allowed!

Here’s the problem: the kids are becoming less and less scared of monsters, so not enough screams are being produced to power Monstropolis. Then, one day, a little girl follows Monsters, Inc.’s top scarer, Sulley back through the portal. Before long, Sulley and his friend Mike are desperately trying to prevent anyone from finding out about the kid (she’d have to be destroyed, according to the law). How they get her back to her own world is pretty much the basic plot of the movie.

Bomb Blu-Ray

It only took as watching the first half of Monsters, Inc. on Blu-Ray to realize: WE LOVE THIS MOVIE! It’s definitely one of Pixar’s best in terms of characters and storyline, and it’s one film that’s sure to have you howling with laughter, no matter how old you are (the fainting scene – HILARIOUS!). Plus, on Blu-Ray the picture is better, sharper and crisper than even before … this is gonna sound weird, but the hair on all the animated characters looks AMAZING. How do they get hair to look so lifelike and real? For example, as Sulley - who is quite hairy – moves about the screen his hair seems to react to everything going on around him, from his own movements to other characters brushing past him to the wind blowing. WOW.

Fab Features

If I had to make simple choice, I'd prefer to live in It's Kind of a Funny Story simply for the people who were held in it. Despite the location setting for the story, I feel as if I could very easily fall for the characters all over again, especially in an even more personal matter. But, of course, if I was  going with a straight up fantasy like everyone seems to be, I'd most likely go with a world like Dorthy Must Die series or Alice in Wonderland. Both being these magical worlds filled with quirky creatures and people, so how could you get bored? Oh, and of course let us not forget the plenty of harrowing fight scenes for freedom from the evil queens and her many brainless followers.

The Iron Giant was way too advanced in some ways to be a child's movie, yet it was.

I would live in The Outsiders because it's a classic book. I would love to go on adventures with the gang and read books and watch movies with Ponyboy. (Because I too always believed I was the only one who enjoyed them.) I would love to open up to Johnny because he is such a kind hearted soul.
