Monsters University pleasantly defines its title with a great story
With Animation industries overproducing computer-animated films for sequels and series, expectations from critiques and longtime cartoon lovers who grew up with classic Disney movies are pretty high. For this reason, It has been a while since I was surrounded by parents who brought their children to let them enjoy bright and comical scenes.
After coming to the theater with low excitement, not only did this movie exceed my expectation but it also proved that Pixar is not a sort of company that tries to take audience's wherewithal by making a mediocre prequel based on the reputation of an original one.
As usual, Pixar consistently unleashes intriguing, unique, and appealing characters with flexible movements and simplified traits that attract a wide range of audiences. Especially with this film where it is all about presenting different breeds of monsters with extraordinary looks and abilities, followed by an absolute storytelling skill that moved everyone's emotion.
As the setting takes place in the old days before Mike and Sullivan began to work together in Monsters, inc., you get to find out how they met and grew their friendship slowly and interestingly. The story consists of both internal and external conflicts that college students can unanimously relate to. Pixar did an amazing job on capitalizing as much college-related elements as possible to emphasize the importance of corroborations, personal identity, and working hard to achieve your goal. There are also tons of humors that are funny enough to make you laugh periodically.
In a nutshell, this is a sincere and endeavored film that was created to send us various messages that can help us progress in many different ways. I strongly recommend this to all the students out there who are struggling with their school life. It was such an inspirational movie and Pixar still rocks!
