Movie Review: Monsters University

    (My brothers have this poster taped up in their room.)

Monsters University is the fun prequel to Monsters, Inc. I watched Monsters, Inc. as a kid and now I was given the chance to watch Monsters University as I'm about to head out to university this fall...pretty cool! Disney Pixar is not only extremely talented in animation but they are also known for their storytelling abilities and their movies are a pleasure to watch. Now I don't want to give away any spoilers but from the trailer(s), you can tell that Mike and Sulley did not get along at first. Throw in a group of misfits and it's an underdog story for sure. Who doesn't like to root for the underdog?

Fun fact: My university's main indoor meeting place is the Memorial Union which is abbreviated MU. And the main outdoor meeting place is the MU Quad. As I was watching the movie and things around the Monsters University campus were labeled "MU", I thought of OSU. I wonder what other Oregon State students think about that :).

There is a Pixar short film that plays before Monsters University. It's called The Blue Umbrella and I loved it! It was so creative and the music fit really well with it. Wonderfully done silent storytelling!
