Just your average teen, living in Melbourne, whose main joy in life is writing about anything and everything.
Even if you aren't a child, this animated film is a must-see
It has been a good twelve years since the fantastic Disney Pixar Monster's Inc. was released, so to say I was excited for the sequel is a gross understatement. True, I am twenty years old, but come on. I wasn't going to let that stop me from going to see it.

The sequel to the brilliant film is actually a prequel that follows Mike Wazowski, the loveable green ball-shaped monster (seriously, he's just a ball with arms and legs), on his quest to become a Scarer. He enrols in Monster's University, after working hard his whole life to ensure he would be accepted, and meets James P. Sullivan, a monster who cruised through life because of his famous family name. They aren't exactly the best of friends from the beginning, but because of unfortunate circumstances, they are forced to work together with a band of social outcasts to get what they want.

I enjoyed it immensely. I've always liked the idea of humanising objects or animals or other non-existent creatures, and the way the creators of this franchise have humanised the monsters is brilliant. I felt like crying at points, no joke. Also, because my friend and I watched it at 2pm on a school day, we weren't expecting there to be many people watching at all. However, it was packed. Teenagers and adults alike all coming to watch the monsters they kind of, sort of grew up with. Fantastic. I think I only saw two small children. There were even some adults watching alone. So, don't worry if you have nobody to go with. Watch it on your own and bask in the glow of awesomeness.

Very fun watch. Light and easy but really funny, actually. And so clever. It was twelve years in the making, but the product was well worth the wait. Recommend it wholeheartedly.
