Movie Review: Monster University 2013 and what's missing in it.

No comments :

Title: Monster University
Language: English
Genre: Comedy/ Animation
Running Time: 111 Minute

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.- GSC

What do I think about it:-

The formula was right, you got your monster twist to an otherwise mundane college teen flick with the same equation. The jock, the brains, the evil rival and the random group of misfits that somehow becomes your best friend. Throw in a few jokes and sprinkle on some vibrant colors and let animation do it's magic.

Monster University is enjoyable to all ages, it has great comedic timing, interesting type of monsters and didn't try much to mess around with the college formula I mentioned earlier and it provided an ok backstory to the iconic Mike Wazowski and James. P. Sullivan. 

Ignoring the obvious fact that this was probably one of those money squeezing films just because they forgot to milk the successful Monster Inc. 12 years ago. ( it would make much more sense to have this first before Monster Inc. at least I would look forward to Monster Inc, after watching Monster University and not vice versa)

The thing that was missing in Monster University was the rival University, mentioned about 3 -4 times in the film was the name FEAR TECH. I was hoping to see a unique competition between these two Universities because it would have been much nicer to see MU students banding together being led by our protagonists against their fierce sounding competitor. ( I mean... wouldn't you be curious to see what kind of monsters are in FEAR TECH?) 

It still has it's moments and it was still enjoyable so catch it this weekend with friends and family alike, it's one of those bonding movies. :)

Rating: 3/5

"We have 2 in the bag now so let's hope they don't completely ruin the magic with a third one with a love story and rivalry between Mike and James to get the girl alright?"
*Note:- Watched this at MBO Citta Mall, the quality of the movie visually was quite clear as compared to the run downed GSC projectors and could be on par with TGVs newly opened ones as well. But I think it is around an extra RM2 per ticket.
