Open Letters Monthly: Monsters University

Despite a few missteps the past few years, Pixar is still known as one of the most creative studios in Hollywood today. They just released their fourteenth feature film in Monsters University, a cross between their classic Monsters, Inc and an 80's screwball college movie. Will it be good enough to take your kids to, let alone win another Best Animated Feature award for its parent company?

Before they became the top team at power company Monsters, Inc, Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan were college rivals, both trying to become the top Scarers at their college, MU. But when their rivalry gets out of hand, getting them banned from following the major, the pair are forced to work together. Teaming up with a group of misfit monsters, they enter a competition to prove that they are the scariest group on campus. But will Mike and Sully stop fighting each other long enough to focus on winning and follow their dreams?

Monsters University is directed by Dan Scanlon and features the voices of Billy Crystal, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Joel Murray, Sean Hayes, Dave Foley, Peter Sohn, Charlie Day, Nathan Fillion and Helen Mirren.

Very good Prequel to Monsters Inc. Even those who have not watched Monsters Inc. can go for it.
