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).
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 FosterSee all Product Description

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!
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.Read more ›
Monsters inc is a gentle, fine story full of imagination, perfect technique, action and heart, and artistic references (a lot of hints at surrealism).
The characters are not just hilarious but also emotional and moving, and the "message" is about the relativity of our fears and the somehow eternal fight between greed and good values, prejudice and open-mindness. All conducted with the usual Pixar touch, where digital animation and digitally animated characters still recall the hand-drawn cartoons (warmer and truer than many digital/3D current animation films), music choices are tasteful, classy, elegant, mostly jazzy and not common like the captivating pop/techno stuff you usually hear in current cartoons, and the story is not just uncommon, but always meant not to diminish and "offend" viewers' intelligence, wether it's kids or adult.
Excellent blu ray, as usual

An outstanding and perfect picture and sound quality, this film couldn't have been watched in better condition than it is today thanks to the blu-ray.
My favourite 3D so far, depths are clear and deep, which actually helps emphasise the background jokes, pop out 3d pops right out to tickle your glasses. Detail is fantastic, makes you want to reach out and straighten scully's hair, oh and to me the film is even funnier than it was 10 years ago.
Clearly a lot of love and care has gone into this release, and it shows in very frame. It's like an old friend has lost two stone and taken up weight training.
If you need a film to show off your system then this is it, also handy to keep the kids quiet and if you need a giggle on a Sunday afternoon. Brilliant!
