Monster University Quick Review with Quotes

A new animated film captured my heart. This movie is the latest masterpiece of Pixar Animation Studios. I'm amazed with how they can create a full-animated film with great effects and at the same time, add a beautiful story to every character in the film. Monster University was released by Walt Disney Pictures last June 20, 2013.
Let's talk about the characters first. The little yet determined Mike Wazowski of Monster University moved me in so many ways. Despite the negative things and disheartening comments that other monsters say about him, he still continues to do what he knows will make him happy. He continues to bring the best out of him. That's just Mike, he never gives up nor loses faith in himself. Mike Wazowski wants to become the best scarer so he worked hard to achieve his ultimate dream. He doesn't just sit in the corner and wait for things to come his way. Mike knows how to make things happen!

Another character that made me smile is James Sullivan who came from a prominent family. His father is considered as a legend in the Monster University. Everyone expects him to be like his dad - nothing but simply the best. However, James have no idea who he wants to become. He takes life and studies less seriously. He doesn't want to work hard unlike Mike Wazowski. His transformation from being "the big monster who bullies the little ones" to a "sweet and determined friendly monster" was very touching. 

If you watched Monsters, Inc., you are aware that Mike and James are now best of friends. In Monster University, you will find out how both of them used to be completely different. As a matter of fact, they even hated each other. They felt like they come from both ends and thus they needed to compete. When they got into a fight, Dean Hardscrabble informed them that they will be out of the Scarer program which changed things between them. They ended up joining Oozma Kappa (OK) Fraternity, the least and not-so-respected fraternity in Monster University. They signed up for the Scare Games to prove that they have what it takes to become the best scarers the university has ever seen. Well, it wasn't easy as what they thought it would be. There were many challenges along the way but they were able to overcome it together.

So what happened next? This is the time when I have to tell you that you should watch Monster University. It's worth spending your time and money. The movie is perfect for all ages! Kids will definitely love this, just like how they love the minions.

Rating: ★★★★

"That was you! Neither I could do it without you."
