After exploring the worlds of toys and bugs in the two Toy Story films and A Bug's Life, the award-winning computer animation company Pixar delves into the realm of monsters with its fourth feature. Hulking, blue-furred behemoth James P. "Sully" Sullivan (John Goodman) and his one-eyed assistant Mike Wazowski (Billy Crystal) are employed by Monsters, Inc., a scream processing factory. It seems that the denizens of their realm thrive on the screams of kids spooked by monsters lurking under their beds and in their closets. It's the job of Sully, Mike, and their co-workers, including sarcastic Randall Boggs (Steve Buscemi), crab-like CEO Henry J. Waternoose (James Coburn), and lovely snake-headed receptionist Celia (Jennifer Tilly) to keep the frights flowing. When Sully and Mike are followed back into the monster world by a very unafraid little human girl named Boo (Mary Gibbs), they are exiled to her universe, where they discover that such a modern-day mythological specimen as the Abominable Snowman is a fellow refugee.~Karl Williams
Pixar has that magic of just making you want to suddenly watch their films again out of the blue.
I love the conspiracy angle this film takes and that all these crazy events take place seemingly over three days.
And Randall might be one of my favorite animated villains ever, his design and Steve Buscemi's voice work alone floor me.
This is simply one of the best Pixar films to date, and is expectedly much better than its sequel as well. I’m so glad it finally released on 4K UHD Blu-ray. The steelbook matches the other Pixar films that also recently released in this format. Get them all to complete your collection!
This movie was just incredible when it first came out 2001. Purchased in DVD, Blu-ray 3D and now in 4K and the picture gets better than the last ! This movie hooked me on watching animated movies forever, Pixar is the best.
Loved monsters inc. This is one of my favs from Pixar. Always wanted them to make a second part to it with Boo perhaps grown up. But I think it’s best to just leave as is. Of course the ending is a bit sad but regardless very nice film. Steelbook is glossy with embossed movie title! Very nice steelbook
