Monsters Inc

Why they ever chose to ruin it by making it in 3-D is beyond me!

Monsters Inc.
-Monstropolis is a city of monsters, monsters, and yet, more monsters. No humans are to be found. It centers around the city's power plant, Monsters Inc. Which supplies everyone in town with power from the screams of children. Lovable, confident, fuzzy blue monster Sulley and his short, one eyed wisecracking partner Mike discover what can go wrong when the monster world and human world meet. Sulley discovers a door left behind for the night, white with pink flowers on it. He goes in and leaves, only to find a 2 year old he nicknames 'Boo'. So it's up to him and Mike to get her back into her world before anyone finds out

-John Goodman: James P. "Sulley" Sullivan
-Billy Crystal: Mike Wazowski
-Mary Gibbs: 'Boo'
-Steve Buscemi: Randall Biggs
-James Coburn: Henry J. Waternoose
-Jennifer Tilly: Celia
-Bob Peterson: Roz
-John Ratzenberger: The Abominable Snowman
-Bonnie Hunt: Flint
-Jeff Pidgeon: Bile

Did You Know?
-When the Abominable Snowman is describing the village, "Tough kids, sissy kids, kids who lcimb on rocks" this is a line taken from an old jingle for Armour hot dogs
-The restaurant Mike and Celia go to is called Harryhausen. This is a nod to Ray Harryhausen, who was famous for his stop-motion animation movies like Jason and the Argonauts. Also, the octopus behind the bar is a reference to another of his movies, It Came From Beneath the Sea, about an octopus with 6 arms
-The Hidden City Café, which makes an appearance in here, is an actual place. It's located in San Francisco. It's a favorite with all the Pixar animators, including Pete Docter, since the early 1990s
-All of the digital displays in the movie are what is called Nixie tubes, which was very popular technology in the 1960s
-When Sulley and Mike pass Tony's Grossery, there are fruits outside, Mangle Fruit, Bilge Berries and Blood Oranges, which is an actual fruit, named for the blood red tinge to the pulp inside
