We missed Monsters, Inc. when it returned to theaters in 3D. Luckily the TV I won last year is a 3D TV and with our 3D Blu-ray player we were able to experience a movie that we love in a whole new way. Monsters, Inc. is one of those wonderful fun and imaginative movies that turns a known concept on its ear. In this case it is monsters under the bed or in the closet in this case. The monsters who are scaring kids are doing a job and like any job there are on the job perils and big time corporations looking at the bottom line instead of what really matters. In this case the corporation believes that children are toxic to monsters and try and keep anyone quiet who learns otherwise. Our heroes not only learn the truth but learn that the laughter of a child provides more energy for Monstropolis than even the highly sought after screams.
It was nice to see Mike and Sulley up to their antics in a whole new way, 3D. There are also tons of great extras in the DVD set including the 3D Blu-ray, the regular Blu-ray, DVD and Digital copy. With this set you are completely covered for any type of media playback device you might have. There are also a bunch of fun extras including a funny sneak peek at the upcoming Monsters University movie where we will see how Mike and Sulley met. More info below.

“Ultimate Collector’s Edition” — Debuts February 19, 2013
“Monsters, Inc.,” one of Disney•Pixar’s most beloved and visually imaginative feature films, arrives for the first time on Blu-ray 3D in the “Ultimate Collector’s Edition” 5-Disc Combo Pack on February 19, 2013.
In addition to hours of delightful bonus features, the “Monsters, Inc.” Blu-ray 3D
“Ultimate Collector’s Edition” features a sneak peek at the upcoming all-new Disney•Pixar release “Monsters University.”
The now-classic Academy Award®-winning animated comedy adventure “Monsters, Inc.” is set in Monstropolis, a thriving company town where monsters of all shapes and sizes reside. Lovable Sulley (voiced by John Goodman) and his wisecracking best friend Mike Wazowski (voiced by Billy Crystal) are the top scare team at Monsters, Inc., the largest scream-processing factory. The main power source in the monster world is the collected screams of human children—and at Monsters, Inc., an elite team of scarers is responsible for gathering those precious natural resources.
Believed by monsters to be toxic, children are strictly forbidden from entering Monstropolis. But when a little girl named Boo (voiced by Mary Gibbs) accidentally follows Sulley back into his world, he finds his career in jeopardy and his life in utter chaos. Assisted by Mike, the two pals plot to rectify the mistake and return Boo to her home. When the trio encounters an unexpected series of complications, they become embroiled in a cover-up catapulting them into a mystery beyond their wildest dreams.
Directed by Oscar®-winner Pete Docter (“Up”) and produced by Oscar nominee Darla K. Anderson (“Toy Story 3”), “Monsters, Inc.” features a screenplay by Andrew Stanton and Daniel Gerson and music by Randy Newman.
