Monsters, Inc. Blu-ray 3D Review...

Monsters, Inc., one of Pixar’s most beloved and visually imaginative feature films, arrives for the first time on Blu-ray 3D in the Ultimate Collector’s Edition 5-Disc Combo Pack on February 19, 2013. 

In addition to hours of delightful bonus features, the “Monsters, Inc.” Blu-ray 3D “Ultimate Collector’s Edition” features a sneak peek at the upcoming all-new Disney•Pixar release “Monsters University.” 

The now-classic Academy Award-winning animated comedy adventure “Monsters, Inc.” is set in Monstropolis, a thriving company town where monsters of all shapes and sizes reside. Lovable Sulley (voiced by John Goodman) and his wisecracking best friend Mike Wazowski (voiced by Billy Crystal) are the top scare team at Monsters, Inc., the largest scream-processing factory. The main power source in the monster world is the collected screams of human children—and at Monsters, Inc., an elite team of scarers is responsible for gathering those precious natural resources. 

Believed by monsters to be toxic, children are strictly forbidden from entering Monstropolis. But when a little girl named Boo (voiced by Mary Gibbs) accidentally follows Sulley back into his world, he finds his career in jeopardy and his life in utter chaos. Assisted by Mike, the two pals plot to rectify the mistake and return Boo to her home. When the trio encounters an unexpected series of complications, they become embroiled in a cover-up catapulting them into a mystery beyond their wildest dreams.

We loved Monsters, Inc. when it first came out, so we were really excited when they decided to release it on Blu-ray 3D. This movie has a lot of laughs and some touching moments too. It's fun watching Sulley try to hide the little girl that followed him through the closet door. He gains a close bond with her so it's sad when he has to have her go back home. We liked how Sulley and Mike tricked Henry J. Waternoose into saying what his evil plan was so everyone could hear it and he gets caught. Then Sulley takes over the factory and changes things up to make kids laugh instead of scream. That was much better seeing the children laugh and be happy. It doesn't matter if you are an adult or a kid you will love this movie.

The 3D technology is awesome! There are tons of special features between the Blu-ray 3D and the Blu-ray disc to keep you entertained for hours. I liked the outtakes and the for the Birds short.
