‘Monsters Inc’ Extras

posted by Nell Minow

“Monsters Inc” is one of my favorite Pixar movies. Like “Sesame Street,” it makes monsters silly and fun, teaching children that some things we think are scary are not and that we are stronger and braver than we know.

It’s out on Blu-Ray for the first time this week with some delightful extras:

Roundtable Favorite Scene (Bonus)

On the Job (Film clip described in “Roundtable Favorite Scene”)

Featurette: Tokyo Monstropolois (Bonus)

    Nell,
    Have you been to the Monster Inc. attraction at Walt Disney World, Magic Kingdom, Tomorrowland? They make a good attempt to involve the audience too. It is fun (though I miss Timekeeper with the Robin Williams and Rhea Perlman matchup, along with Jeremy Irons).
    It is a good movie and worth watching several times, especially with kids. Then you get to try and explain Borscht belt humor!

    I am jealous, jesterfyl — I have never been to that attraction, but have heard the interactive features are sensational! I am a huge fan of WDW and hope to be back soon.

Claire LaZebnik's Thoughts on Thanks
I can't think of a better way to start Thanksgiving weekend than taking a few minutes to read my friend Claire LaZebnik's wise and inspiring essay on gratitude. This most American of holidays is often accompanied by stress -- from hosting and being hosted, from traveling, from family. Claire write

Horrible Bosses 2
Maybe it's just the proximity to the horrible "Dumb and Dumber To," but the cheerily offensive "Horrible Bosses 2" made me laugh. Full warning -- it begins with an elaborate sight gag as our hapless he

Penguins of Madagascar
The most adorable characters from the first three animated "Madagascar" movies were the penguins, the seldom right but never in doubt leader Skipper (Tom McGrath), the often right but never listened to Kowalski (Chris Miller), the literally explosive Rico (Conrad Vernon), and the ever-loyal Private
