Mon­sters Univer­sity

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - MOVIES -

The once-un­touch­able Pixar reaches back into its cat­a­logue for this pre­quel to the adorable 2001 hit Mon­sters Inc, which casts mis­un­der­stood mon­sters, liv­ing in kids’ wardrobes, as the heroes. They say: A re­turn to form for Pixar, and one of the stu­dio’s fun­ni­est films yet, ac­cord­ing to most crit­ics, with the naysay­ers ac­knowl­edg­ing the qual­ity of the gags while still miss­ing the creative edge Pixar was founded on. Wesay: En­ter­tain­ing and very colour­ful, which makes us feel a bit cur­mud­geonly grip­ing about Pixar’s lost ‘‘soul’’, but they’re now deep enough in se­quel ter­ri­tory to make the point moot. Di­rected by Dan Scan­lon (de­but). Run­ning time 107 min­utes. Screens at Tweed City, Nerang, Har­bour Town, Pa­cific Fair, Aus­tralia Fair, Robina, Coolan­gatta, Yatala Drive-in.
