Monsters, Inc.

{5/5} “Your stunned silence is very reassuring.”

Monsters, Inc., released in 2001

In the monster world, monsters scare kids in order to captures their screams — the screams are what they use for power. But it’s dangerous work because kids are toxic to monsters. When Sully accidentally brings a kid back to the monster world, he must get help from his friend Mike — to get the kid back to her own world, and her own room.

This is one of Pixar’s masterpieces. The premise is brilliant, and it’s executed with great imagination and comedy.

The world they created is extremely clever.

It’s about friendship.

Billy Crystal’s Mike Wazowski and John Ratzenberger’s Abominable Snowman are particularly funny.

Stars the voices of John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, and James Coburn. Directed by Pete Docter (Inside Out), David Silverman (The Simpsons Movie), and Lee Unkrich (Coco). The music by Randy Newman is joyous.

This is probably the 3rd time I’ve seen it. I previously reviewed the prequel Monsters University.
