Purchased as a second copy to have for when my special needs son is placed in a group home. Item plays with no errors or issues. Item came packaged as described and in described condition. Item arrived on time with no issues.
This is my favorite movie for the last 16 years. I’m a grown adult and I still watch it over and over. This time we watched it with my 4 year old nephew for his first time. Even though he fought it because he wanted Thomas he soon was mesmerized by the characters and the story. Every time I go to Disney I run to where Mike and Sulley are for photos. I’ve been with just Sulley, just Mike and the last time they were both there. Just love it! Wish I could find my dvd copy.....oh and Monsters University is great too!
I love Pixar movies, but originally wasn't too impressed with this offering. Having a baby changed all of that, however.
Once we stumbled across some 'Monster's Inc.' while my then-two-year-old son was in the room. He was instantly transfixed, something about the shape of the characters and the world enraptured him. After his first exposure, we got incessant demands to see this: "Watch Monster Mike! Watch Monster Mike!"
I would have figured some of the subject matter (using children's screams as energy, the villian, etc.) would be a little dark for a two year old, but he absolutely loves it! My son (and therefore, I) saw this movie at least 20 times, often split across multiple days. Even though it's been almost a year since we first started watching, he still loves it.
Pro: - nice animation, cute characters - great voice acting from Goodman, Crystal, Buscemi, and more! See if you can recognize Waternoose's voice - interesting story and plotline - lots of details. My son absolutely, positively loves the idea of the doors. - DVD has worked reliably and has good video encoding quality. No complaints!
Con: - none. It's a sweet movie that gets a little better each time you watch it.
The creators of the animated blockbuster "Toy Story" open the door to a whole new world of imagination in the very funny animated fantasy "Monsters, Inc". In the amazing world of Monstropolis, James P. Sullivan (John Goodman) and Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal) are the top-notch scare duo of Monsters, Inc. When an unsuspected human child crosses over to their world, Sullivan and Mike must keep their new guest a secret and learn that humans aren't that scary. "Monsters, Inc" is the fourth animated movie produced by Pixar Animation Studios. The 2001 animated blockbuster is an inventive and delightful family comedy with a superb voice cast and incredible animation. The story is original, funny and appealing for all audiences. The computer animation is simply groundbreaking. John Goodman and Billy Crystal deliver great comic performances. The voice cast also includes Steve Buscemi, John Ratzenberger, Jennifer Tilly and Academy Award winner James Coburn. "Monsters' Inc" won the Academy Award for Best Song.
Disney dishes out one monstrous DVD. The animated blockbuster is presented in both THX-certified 1.85:1 widescreen and standard full screen formats. The DVD contains an exceptionally sharp picture quality with bright colors and a positively excellent Dolby Digital 5.1-EX sound. This fully-loaded 2-disc DVD includes audio commentary with directors Pete Docter and Lee Unkrich and executive producers, several deleted scenes, very funny outtakes, multiple behind-the-scenes featurettes in the production of "Monsters, Inc.", the amusing animated short "Mike's New Car" and sneak peeks of upcoming Disney movies. The interactive DVD menus are very appealing. With its impressive viewing quality and enjoyable features, "Monsters, Inc" scores a solid "A".
To call Monster's Inc. a "kid movie" wouldn't do it justice. The movie is a sweet, warm and funny movie that is easily amongst the best of its kind. When I first saw this movie I was going through that "kids movies are stupid" phase. I wouldn't watch kids movies, and generally had nothing positive to say about them. By happenstance I happened upon Monster's Inc., and was not just surprised by how much I liked it, but how much I loved it. I've watched it, re-watched it, and watched it again. I love the characters, the clever concept of Monsters who are afraid of kids, and the use of laughter being more powerful than any scream. I imagine this will be a movie I'll watch with my kids, who will watch it with their kids, and still be watched long after I'm gone. The movie is just that well made. If you haven't seen it, stop reading this review and watch it right now.
Pixar is almost always exceptional, and this is one of those times. Love this movie. Anyone who grew up with monsters in their closet or under their bed (or anyone who has a two year old child) will relate to this one!
Amazon Prime Video Purchase for my child, always a win, love the service. Love that we can just watch this anywhere we take the iPad or phones with the app. Just makes having a toddler so much easier sometimes.
Recently I bought a Blu-ray, against my own thinking because I had to get a player so might as well join the hype. Needed a Blu-ray disc to see if it was worth it so i bought a few discs including this one BECAUSE it was rated as 1 of the top 50 movies to own on Blu-ray by a number of reviewers and I saw this this movie and enjoyed it a long time ago on DVD.
It was worth it ... the detail is excellent ... and I'm no expert but I am meticulous to quality. I do not believe Blu-ray makes a big difference because the quality is in your HD tv ... I have original dvds that look just as good on a Blu-ray playing on the same tv. Don't be fooled, Blu-ray isn't automatically better. Your tv makes a difference.
That being said, this Blu-ray is worth it ... quality is improved over a dvd disc.
