I never saw this the first time it was out and I absolutely loved this movie. the #d is great as well and definitely adds to the experience.

Great movie as always but the 3D is totally unnecessary and not a good conversion. Save your money rent it for a dollar in 2D.

If you saw this the first time around, you should go check it out in 3D. Mike's fur looks even furrier (and closer), and the conveyor belt scene at the end is more like a roller coaster.

Having seen this movie about 10 times with my kids before, I didn't have a lot of expectations of watching the 3D version; after all, how much "better" is it going to be? I must say I was pretty satisfied, even though it wasn't cheap!
The usual problem with "3D" movies is that the effects are over exaggerated, and they can look somewhat 2.5D (layers of flat characters/objects). I think folks at Pixar did a great job, making the movie not trying to be so "3D" - it just felt VERY natural. I am pretty sure they also re-rendered the movie in a much higher resolution too; things looked very sharp when they were supposed to.
My one criticism is the textures on eyes. I don't know if anyone noticed, but many of the eyeballs had simple curved 2D textures, and not a fully modeled in 3D. That made characters seem very cheap and cartoonish in some scenes. Perhaps Pixar didn't have time to remodel those, but given the re-release, that we pay full price for, I think they should have.

Monsters, Inc. 3D is worth seeing again in 3D--but pricey!
After gas, tickets for 4, popcorn, sodas, and fruit snack candies, the total was $80.
It will be Cable TV for me from now on...
