#2 Monsters, Inc.: That is the weirdest thing you have ever said.

2001. dir. Pete Docter. starring Billy Crystal, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi.

Seen it before? Many times.

We were supposed to go to a basketball game today, but there was a scheduling mixup, so we're staying home and watching movies. stupid UIC.

This is Daniel's favorite movie, and the first of seven(!) Pixar movies on the list. Pretty entertaining, and very timely: they mention rolling blackouts... this thing came out in 2001 when the whole Enron thing was happening. hmm. More political subtext than you usually see in a kid's movie.

Question, why didn't Sully just go into the door, instead of grabbing the door next to it and going on an incredibly dangerous roller-coaster ride? It was a cool sequence, but didn't make any sense. In Children Of Men, which we just saw, all of the action sequences were totally organic. One flowed right into the next. ehh. small nitpick I guess.

I think we'll watch one more after the kid goes to bed. Something older probably.


Position on the list: 239
In the neighborhood: 237: Mulholland Dr. 238: Barry Lyndon 240: Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?
