Let’s Talk: Monsters Inc and Monsters University

With the Halloween season spicing up everyone’s life right now, literally I mean have seen all the Pumpkin spice things that everyone is going crazy for…..I don’t really understand why everyone likes Pumpkin spiced food and drinks, I mean I do love me some Pumpkin donuts from Dunkin’ don’t get me wrong, but aren’t we going a little bit too far with it!?

I understand the Pumpkin candles, those always smell lovely, so those are okay, everything else that’s Pumpkin inspired though…..that’s different….but we’re not hear to talk about Pumpkins…..not yet anyway, that will be coming up soon! Today I thought we’d talk about everybody’s favorite and most adorable Disney movie at least to me it’s got adorable things in it…..in this post we are discussing both Monsters Inc and Monsters University combined!

Why exactly!? Well because without Monsters University we would never know how Sully and Mike Wazowski got into the Scare business and without Monsters Inc we wouldn’t know who Boo was…..those are the two main important things about both these movies…alright alright, I’ll give them both more credit then that…..we all know how great Monsters Inc is, it was the first to release between the two and it’s still being played every Halloween as well as during most days really if you can’t bother to wait for the Spooky season, although a lot of movies are like that if you really think about it….

Monsters Inc is just one of those movies that are just fun to watch, like when you see that it’s on and you’re able to watch it….7/10 you’d be the first to switch over to it, now I didn’t say 9/10 because I feel like it’s easy to pass by, I mean there have been times where I’ve seen it on a tv guide and just not gone to watch it, but I think it’s okay to say that seeing Monsters Inc even if you do skip it and choose to watch something else, you do stop and acknowledge it before you start watching that show or movie that leaves you wanting to make snacks for or just to enjoy!

Now as for Monsters University…..I’m not sure how many people would skip it or would switch to it right away, now that’s not me saying that it’s a bad movie, cause it’s not, Monsters University has it’s own charm to it, it’s not exactly a Monsters Inc 2, which I think a lot of people we’re upset about at first, I feel like a lot of people were really wanting a second Monsters Inc movie, but we’re a little disappointed when we were given Monsters University instead…..but I think people have gotten over that already!

Like I was saying though, it’s not Monsters University does have it’s own charm to it and it was nice to see what Sully and Mike Wazowski were like during their younger heading into adulthood years, it’s not what we were expecting, but it was pretty good, at least I thought so…..it was cool seeing the two best friends and some of their school friends from Monsters University visit the company that they would later be apart of in the Monsters Inc movie, like what I great way to foreshadow a classic movie that already exist!

Just in case that sounded like sarcasm, just know that it’s not I was just expressing in a very weird way that I like that they referenced Monsters Inc in Monsters University, yeah I probably didn’t need to explain that, but I felt it feeling like I was saying that sarcastically so I wanted to clarify it for myself and in case people read it and wonder if I was using sarcasm or really felt it like that…..moving on…..both Monsters Inc and Monsters University are great movies, they both are similar, but are also very different from each other, they’ve got their own thing going for them, which I like!

I love how you’re able to see Monsters Inc being told in many different ways as you’re getting to see both stories unfold and transition to being what they both are now, with Monsters University being the starting point of the journey even though it was released later and Monsters Inc being the butterfly that emerges out of it’s cocoon, it’s a weird and backwards way of telling a story, but I guess it worked out for the best, regardless I think both movies should be given better credit and more love if they haven’t been getting much of it these days!

P.S.

I might just record an episode talking a bit more about Monsters Inc and Monsters Uni sometime soon, I feel I have a bit more I want to get out, but writing it all here would be a very long read it’s pretty much be the same thing to this post, but with some added thoughts that I hoping I haven’t expressed yet so keep your eyes peeled for that….

Happy First Day Of Autumn!!

If you haven’t already noticed, We have said farewell to Summer and have welcomed the Autumn season, So far it’s been what you would expect the fall weather to be like, it wasn’t too hot today, I saw a few leaves falling earlier and the air has come down in temperature a bit which is good, the past few days, well weeks shall I say, has been pretty darn hot, so now that we’ve entered the fall season, at least we can say the air will become a lot more cooler!

We might still get a bit of hot weather, even though it’s officially fall now, but I say give it another week or two and you’ll see just how cool the air starts to get, then again I can be wrong and we’ll be feeling heat for a bit longer mixed in with cool weather as well, which of course we all love *Sarcastically speaking* in all seriousness though, I love the fall season, I’ve probably mentioned that so many times on here before, I don’t know what it is exactly, but there’s just something about this season that gets me so happy!

I just love the feel of it, I enjoy seeing the way the leaves on the trees change from green to red’s, yellows, orange and browns! My favorite is when they dry up, this may sound a bit weird, but I love making little bouquets with the leaves, I have a big square vase with a lot of dried up leaves in it that I’ve collected and sorted together, it’s like having a vase full of flowers, but with leaves instead, I love it!

Another thing I love about Autumn is being able to wear fall clothing, like sweaters, cardigans and boots, I don’t know why, but fall clothing has got to be one of my favorite attires to wear, I love wearing short sleeves in the Spring which is my other favorite season, but there’s just something about being in a sweater and wearing a cardigan that just feels right…..I guess it’s because they give you that cozy feeling and who doesn’t love that!?

I wish I could say more about the fall season, but I guess we can just keep it short for today, plus I feel like today is not a day for a long post anyway, I’ve been trying to write all day and I did write something, but for some reason I’ve been having trouble explaining what it is I was trying to write so it’s not really finish, I’ll try and see if I can explain it better within a few days, it might end up being a podcast episode instead of a post who knows, it’s just been a very productive non productive day and very interesting as well!

Hope you all have been having a good Wednesday and enjoyed the beginning of Autumn, although short and sweet is nice, sorry if this one was a little too short!

P.S.
