Monsters, Inc. :- Watch Monsters, Inc. on Youtube on Fire, Back in 2001, Monsters, Inc. kept Pixar’s win streak alive, in terms of both box office glory and general critical reception; yet, it’s not commonly ranked so high on the computer-animation studio’s list of accomplishments. That’s more a testament to Pixar’s high standards, since Monsters remains an infectiously-buoyant toon that marries eclectic humor and tender sentiment; not to mention, memorable monster characters brought to life through expressive voice acting by such people as John Goodman, Billy Crystal, Steve Buscemi, Jennifer Tilly and Frank Oz, among others.
Disney continues its lucrative trend of re-releasing cherished animated titles in 3D (after Toy Story 1 & 2, The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast and Finding Nemo) with Monsters, Inc. 3D. Hence, there are many people who became endeared to big-and-furry James P. Sullivan (Goodman) and one-eyed Mike Wazowski (Crystal) when they were younger and now, wish to either take their own children to enjoy the film on the big screen, or maybe revisit it simply for nostalgia’s sake. But does the 3D post-conversion enhance or detract from the viewing experience? Unfortunately, in opposition to Finding Nemo 3D (read our review), Monsters, Inc. does not benefit from the added depth (as a whole, that is). Moreover, the vibrant colors and exaggerated physics of Monstropolis and its citizens end up being weakened, as a result of the migration from 2D to darker 3D. The majority of scenes suffer from the conversion, resulting in blurrier action and eye-catching details be they wooly hairs.
