Monsters, Inc. (2001) (***1/2)

leave a comment »


Genre – Animation/ Comedy

Monsters, Inc. is among the very best animation movies i have seen. The dialogues are hilarious, the characters are well-written, the timing of the ‘actors’ is spot on, the voices are amazing- this film is in fact much better than most normal movies to be released so far!
The idea of Monsters generating energy from children’s screams is a cute starting point. The 2 central characters are just perfect- ‘sully’ the champ and ”mike wazowski’ the one-eyed fella (my favourite) are too good. Billy Crystal‘s voiceover injects a lot of life into ‘mike wazowski’ (i just love saying out the name). The show-stealer is of course the the kid ‘Boo’, with voiceover provided by 2 yr old Mary Gibbs- i happened to see this promo on tv where they actually showed her giggling and squealing, with her voice being recorded for the movie! This movie spawned a plethora of animation movies like Shark Tale and even Finding Nemo, but none have been able to quite live up to the mark set by Monster, Inc. Every character is memorable- the yeti (snow-cones, anyone?), roz the accountant lady(i’m watching you!), Celia mike’s girlfriend (googlie-bear), everyone! The attention given to detail is worth appreciating- apparently, the hair on sully’s body were all programmed individually to sway just the right way when sully walks/ runs !! A must watch movie truly.
