    5 Scares - Can we go to Monsters Elementary next?
    4 Scares - Mike and Sully to the rescue!!!
    3 Scares - It was fun, could have been better
    2 Scares - A sequel that shouldn't have been made
    1 Scare - Cars 2 was better

    I gave it a 4... as a piece of entertainment, it's closer to a 5, but I have my 5 category and this isn't it. But it's really a lot of fun. I'm happy with it.

      MU gets a 4 from me. It was very enjoyable and a lot of fun to watch, but not a Pixar masterpiece. The characters I really enjoyed were Dean Hardscrabble and the librarian. such great designs. The two characters I really didn't care for were Don and Art. I really wish they weren't in it, haha.

      Seeing as how this thread is for those who have seen the movie, I won't use the spoiler tag but instead just warn ahead...


      While it was great seeing them do the monster challenges, it felt like it really didn't start going somewhere until Mike sneaked into the the door lab. That moment was an "aahhh, now we're getting somewhere." And once he was inside the cabin with all the children, things got very interesting and risky. It was great, I loved all of that. I loved Mike's realization that he may not be what he dreamed to be, reality check!


      Unlike Brave, I actually look forward to seeing MU again. Great job, Pixar!

        I liked it, gave it a 4 as well. I think it missed just a tiny bit, by not having a character like Boo in Monsters, Inc. But, well done. I want to see it again, to catch more of the subtle Monster jokes that go by so quickly, in the background. And I missed the Pizza truck.

        Spoiler sort of: My thought was having Squishy having a younger sibling would have helped, having a child in the mix somewhere. (it seems possible, since the Frat was living in Squishy's home, with his Mom already)

            Just got back from it. I enjoyed it, however for some reason I found it more sober than hilarious, maybe that is because I just finished my freshman year of college and the character's emotions hit to close to home!

              Growing up with Monsters, Inc., I was anticipating this movie since the first announcement. I'm going off to college this year, and it even had a much greater hype for me. The verdict?

              Pixar has been revived.

              While it may not have the quality or amount of heart of Up or Toy Story 3, I'm glad that it exists, and brings Pixar back from the "trip and fall" with Cars 2 and slow recovery with Brave.

              The message is also unique and extremely adult for a Pixar film, or any film for that matter. The film manages to teach that life is tough, and you don’t always get what you want – regardless of how much you believe you should. The importance of this message cannot be overstated for today’s children (and heck, even for some adults).
