Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan are an inseparable pair, but that wasn’t always the case. From the moment these two mismatched monsters met they couldn’t stand each other. “Monsters University” unlocks the door to how Mike and Sulley overcame their differences and became the best of friends. — (C) Walt Disney
The visuals are nothing short of amazing, again, no surprise there. I love the character animation and design they use. Pixar has a way of magically developing their characters in that you feel for every one in the film, even the smaller roles. The development of the relationship between Mike and Sully is also done very well. It’s the classic story of opponents becoming friends, and using their strengths together, instead of playing against their weaknesses. A great lessons for both children and adults.
They actually caught me off guard with the story a little bit, because right when I thought they went down cliche avenue, they took a swift and sharp turn to prove me wrong. I love movies that can do that to me and they did it very well. You’ll know what I’m talking about when you see it.
Oh I almost forgot. The overly beautiful, and quite awesome silent story (with music ) of the Blue Umbrella that will open for the movie. I loved every second of it from the beautifully rendered models of street signs, and traffic items, to the fluid and realistic flow of the animation. These guys mastered story telling in any format. A+ for the short.
