Old is New Again!

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.

Worth seeing again in 3D--but pricey!

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...

The story was good, the 3D, almost not noticeable.

This has always been a great story and my two 7 years olds, their grandparents and I loved it. Clearly Disney/Pixar remade it in 3D to release it again and make a pile of cash. The 3D was almost non existent. The story, great.

Still a great movie for all ages, but 3D was non-existent...

If you love the movie, save you're self the extra cost of the 3D tickets and buy the BlueRay DVD for the family. We were not impressed by the 3D at all. It's still a great movie, just not worth the extra $$$ for the 3D.

This is one of my son's favorite animated movies. It is also one of my favorites with lots to laugh about. Seeing it on the big screen in 3D was fun! Great way to spend some time with family enjoying some really good laughs.
