Monsters University is a prequel to Monsters, Inc. Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan aren’t friends but rather mortal enemies as they begin school and try to better one another as they both major as Scarer. But Dean Hardscrabble and the Roar Omega Roar fraternity have other plans for the pair of them. Joining the misfit fraternity Oozma Kappa, they put their feud aside in an attempt to prove themselves in the scare games and prove to the other that they are the better monster.
Hilarious and amazing! This movie is the best pixar movie since Toy Story 3, measuring up with a different story and reintroducing the Monsters from before in different lights. James P. Sullivan is a legacy whose father is a big scarer and he has his head up his tushie while Mike Wazowski is the nerd who is trying his hardest to stay in the Scare Program tobe the scarer he has always wanted to be since he was a child. So the pair of these guys are at odds with one another and are not the best friends they are in Monsters, Inc. What’s better is Randall started out as a shy nerd who had little to no control over his camouflage power before turning into the villain we see him in Monsters, Inc.
Taking on a Revenge of the Nerds type storyline, the misfits spend the movie trying to prove that they are monsters and can scare people if they so choose. That makes this movie agreat family and a great child movie. It shows that no matter what, if you have the confidence you can be what you want to be. That made it wonderful and it was suspenseful an amazing and as good as the first movie with a heartfelt warm note and just like the first movie, it will have you at the edge of your seat hoping for the pair to survive yet another adventure. The best Pixar movie in a long while. ★★★★ (A+)
