Monsters University (2013)

Not having watched Monsters Inc. till now (a lot of eyes rolling with judgement) I was not prepared for how thoroughly I would enjoy it. The world they had created was entirely new (for me) and since this was a prequel to the first one, it worked out well as a hilarious but soul searching back story.

Classic themes were touched upon, though at times it is more grown up, practical, work hard and stick together to win kind of approach. This animated film felt more real in that sense. Billy Crystal and John Goodman lend voices to characters which are not only lovable but identifiable as well. Helen Mirren as the Dean is perfection!

Monsters Inc. was released way back in 2001, so this second instalment came a little too late, but it was enjoyable and original.

3/5
