    I liked it because I like the characters and Pixar's clever writing and imaginative animation are always fun. But it sailed over the head of the five-year-old I took with me.

    Monsters university is a lesson that you don't have to be the person people want you to be. Just be yourself and you can make it in the world!
    GO MONSTERS!!!!????

    I was so excited to see this film, I loved Monsters Inc. and could not wait to see this film. I am happy to say that I was not disappointed with it and I highly recommend seeing it in the theaters. I took my sister’s children to see it with me but honestly I would have seen this film without them as well. The film is charming and funny, I had an amazing time watching it and my nephews did too. I love the theme of this wonderful animation and the honesty that it brings and it was also quite funny. I do think that he first film was better but I still had a great time watching it so i am not going to complain. Overall, it is a great film to see with your family.

    I was very excited to see this film because Monsters Inc. is one of my most favorite animations ever. I took my niece to see it with me and she insisted on watching it in 3D. I think the film looked great in 3D and it is worth the extra cash. I thought the film was pretty good, it was charming and witty and my niece and I both had fun watching it. It is not the most original of the Pixar films but I liked it and I think it will please a wide audience. The characters were great and the storyline was fun and honest. Overall, it is a great summer film for the whole family and I think it is worth seeing on the big screen.

    I thought this was a great animation and I recommend seeing it in the theaters. I have never seen the first film but my brother’s kid loved the first movie and he begged me to take him to see this one. I usually do not like watching films in 3D but as a good aunt I purchased the tickets to see this movie in 3D and I think it was worth the extra cash, the film looked great. My nephew had fun watching this film and so did I, I thought it was quite charming and smart. The characters were really great and I thought the film was quite funny, I am definitely going to rent Monsters Inc. and see what that film is all about.

    I really enjoyed watching this film and I highly recommend seeing it in the theaters. I think Pixar really needed a good film to rebound from Cars 2 and this film was a perfect comeback. It was a solid film with a great story with imaginative and funny characters and it is made for a whole family to enjoy. I thought the film was thoughtful, funny, creative and smart and I really think that the message was great and an important one as well. Overall, I had a great time watching it and I think it is worth seeing on the big screen.

    Um, ok, first things first: if you are in New York or LA (or possibly Chicago) you get to see Monsters University two days earlier than everyone else. And two: why are you still reading this??! Get thee to a theater near you! I am serious! This is the best movie I have seen all summer - it's much better than the disappointment that was "Man of Steel" - wow, was it so cheerless, and it's hella better than the glamorous bag of poop that was "The Great Gatsby". And don't even get me started on "After Earth" - I still want my money back! But this one is a doozy in the best way. It makes everything senseless seem magical, and makes everything about going to school and being with friends familiar again. I really loved the story and the characters and music are all so engaging. I doubt I'll be seeing a better movie this summer, so I already made plans to go back. Y'all better do the same!

    I realize that I'm gonna be in the mega tiny minority by complaining about the inevitable classic that is "Monsters University" BUT I have a gripe - and I think it's a gripe worth considering: why do all of the Pixar movies tend to be so male centric? Yes, we had Brave, but that was just one movie - and yes, there was Jessie in Toy Story, but we all know that movie belongs to Buzz and Woody. Don't the people who make these movies realize that the majority of the population is female? In fact, I would be willing to bet that the majority of the people who love Pixar and Disney movies are female. The only female of note in this movie is the dean of the university; she's played by Helen Mirren and she's kind of a mini grotesque Dumbledore if you will. In fact, the whole setting is kind of like Hogwarts, only with Monsters. It's a cute movie, but missing about half its characters.

    Well, kids, they've done it again! Pixar has taken one of its favorite originals and turned it into a franchise that even Walt Disney himself would be proud of. Mike and Sulley are back and better than ever. This story is about how the came to be monsters that haunt the closets of kids everywhere. It's a cutesy look at what it takes to become a monster, complete with the typical college hijinks and the competitions every university student goes through to prove their worth. My favorite character in the story is Mike - he is always funny in nearly every line and he makes the whole movie feel like it's just 15 minutes long. I would even go so far as to say he's the star of the show. Without him, there's no movie. I would say this one is even better than Cars 2 or either of the Toy Story sequels. It's also on par with last year's Pixar masterpiece, Brave.

    As much as it pains me to say this, I think the time has come to acknowledge that the inevitable has come to pass: Pixar has peaked. Their storytelling is still solid, but it's not as magical as it once was. Maybe it's the fact that this is a sequel, but then again I think of the Toy Story sequels and they were both amazing films. This one is nice and funny and entertaining, but it doesn't have the heart of the original, or even of the better Pixar movies like Up and Ratatouille. Also, I think this is the first Pixar movie since Cars 2 that will be liked more by the kids than the adults. Eh. That being said, it's a treat to watch it in 3D because it has some amazing graphics and the animation is utterly resplendent. All in all, I would say this comes close to the Pixar style but doesn't match it. I still recommend it but more so on a visual level than on a narrative one.
