Product Description

Children's animated feature from Disney Pixar featuring the voice talents of John Goodman and Billy Crystal. Sulley (voiced by Goodman) and sidekick Mike (Crystal) are the top scaring team on the job at an energy firm where their task is to keep Monstropolis ticking over, running it on the power generated by children screaming. Believing children are toxic, dangerous creatures who must be kept out of Monstropolis at all costs, Mike and Sulley are terrified when they realise that a little girl called 'Boo' (Mary Gibbs) has followed them back through a door. Slowly they realise that little Boo isn't actually dangerous at all and uncover a sinister plot that exists behind the company's happy facade, involving creepy arch-rival scarer Randall (Steve Buscemi).

From Amazon.co.uk

It’s hard to pinpoint just which part of the Monsters Inc high definition presentation will blow you away the most. Will it be the gorgeous colours that flash before your eyes? Will it be the picking up of even the most minute details? Or will it, as we suspect, be the fur on the creatures that inhabit the world of Monsters Inc, most specifically the big blue monster himself, Sulley?

Pixar films, as you might expect, have been exceptionally well served by the Blu-ray format, and you can chalk Monsters Inc up as a raging success, too. This is genuinely reference quality visual and audio material that you get here, with few films coming close to the quality Pixar has served up.

It helps too that the film is a firm family favourite, as the main duo of Sulley and Mike go from the day to day of their job collecting screams from children to a changing of their approach, courtesy of an encounter with a small girl who they inevitably warm to. Among the many highlights to watch out for, check out the frenetic denouement, with the abundance of different doors flying before your eyes.

Monsters Inc was and remains one of the best family films of the past few years. And this Blu-ray release is the perfect way to appreciate it, with the level of detail and jaw-dropping spectacle that we almost take for granted now that Pixar will deliver. Roll on the forthcoming sequel… --Jon Foster

This film is just a visual and audio treat. We have watched this blu-ray numerous times and each time is as funny as the last. It just seems to keep getting better with each viewing as we see more and more details in the picture, more and more subtle hints, jokes and producer tricks.

The story is moving, about monsters that work in a factory and scare children, collecting their screams for electricity to run their world. It has adult humor about the 9-5 grind, lots of laughs for the children, and of course, the bad guy. There is something for everyone in this film, and the characters are realistic, well portrayed, and you forget that you are watching a cartoon after a while. I don't post spoiler reviews, but the story is excellent here and one of their finest to date.

The DTS-HD MA sound delivers thumping bass and very realistic and believable surround sound perfectly balanced on all channels. The Subwoofer is well integrated into the sound effects for a nice deep addition to regular sound effects however, when it should thump, it really does. All channels get a good workout and really throw you into the movie. TEN stars for sound.

This cartoon may be a bit dated in terms of technical aspects but it is still an awesome display of cartoon. The picture is 1080P and just crystal clear and unbelievably cool to watch. Ten stars for video too.

After such an awesome sound/video quality, the story could be mediocre and it would still get five stars. However, the story is also very cool and entertaining to watch. This is one of the best blu-rays I have bought, and even better than some of the newer cartoons.
You can't go wrong with this Blu-Ray. A big thumbs up!

Format: Blu-ray
I know Monsters Inc is popular, but I've always thought of it as living in the shadow of the other Pixar films; it came nestled between the more successful and considerably more famous Toy Story 2 and Finding Nemo, it's not one of the 'Brad Bird masterpieces'; it's even outshined by the comparatively duller Cars, a film that coasted into kids' hearts despite being missing something perhaps only we older Pixar afficionados can see.

This is a shame, as Monsters Inc is one of the studio's very best films, and indeed one of Disney's very best by default. First time director Pete Docter knows his stuff- the film is filled to the brim with background detail, and after the discovery of the child the pace is frantic 'til the thoroughly satisfying conclusion. Following three films directed by studio head John Lasseter, Docter paved the way for the other directors to tackle their own ideas, and ironically Lasseter's return to directing (with Cars) fell far short of the bar set by Andrew Stanton with Nemo, Bird's The Incredibles, and this sterling effort.

The Blu Ray is a stunning transfer. While it's arguable that the film's groundbreaking fur rendering looks dated now, it still looks amazing compared with lesser offerings from Dreamworks. EVERYTHING in this film, in fact, looks amazing, from the subtle hues and colours of the sky to the photorealistic blizzard and underground halls. The animation on token child Boo is so human its impossible not to fall in love with her, share her fears and her delights. Background detail is too presented with astounding visual clarity- see the combination locks in the locker room or cars in the exterior shot of the building for proof.

Not only is Monsters Inc a fantastically well thought out and produced concept, it has characters which I feel are completely unrivalled by some of Disney's other popular characters. Mike and Sulley (our two main monsters) are brilliant - they are funny, witty characters with heaps of charisma; so much so that you can't help but fall in love with them. But Boo (the human child who is let into the monster world by accident) is the most adorable character imaginable.

The story centres around Mike and Sulley who work for the Monsters Incorporated Scaring company. The Incorpation essentially opens doors into the human world and, in order to collect power for the monsters world, sends the monsters into an unsuspecting childs bedroom and makes them scream. The scream acts as the monster worlds energy source. Boo - a human child, is accidentally let into the monster world and Mike and Sulley must do everything they can to keep her hidden (or risk decontamination procedure, not to mention being fired) and return her safely back to her door (each child has a specific bedroom door which appears in the monsters world).

I loved this movie anyway, and a part of me did think "Whats the point in buying the blu-ray when I have the original already?". But I can assure you that the Blu-ray is absolutely beautiful. Sulley's fur for instance is probably one of the most detailed, spectacular parts of the movie. Additionally, alongside the much improved visual aspects, the audio aspects have been greatly improved - to the extent that you can hear the characters footsteps or rustles of some paper on the street floor.

I can't recommend this enough, to all ages and even to those who already own the standard DVD because it is such a vast improvement. The bonus features are also pretty good and give us some insight into what the creators had in mind when coming up with Monsters Inc. This is a feel-good, family movie that everyone should see - particularly in Blu-Ray!
