    During Monsters Inc I kept thinking, "It's not funny, it's not fun." [​IMG]

    I liked both films a lot, both had problems, although Shrek got the higher rating and having watched it again this weekend, I certainly think it is the superior of the two.
    Of course, all of that will change in December when Jimmy Neutron: BOY GENIUS hits theaters. [​IMG]

    Monsters Inc by a wide margin. Shrek just has way to many pop culture references for it to have any long lasting appeal (the matrix gag is already old).
    Monsters Inc just has a nicely classic feel that I appreciate.

    I would have like Monsters Inc so much better if it wasn't for the ending. They should have ended it prior to the real ending. It seemed as if they had 2 endings to the film and the last one made it stupid. Other than that, Monsters was really cool.
    Due to the ending of Monsters Inc. Shrek gets my vote.

    Although I liked both, Monster's Inc definately wins over Shrek for me. Not only did I laugh more but it was more touching. And I haven't seen a better ending for a movie since god knows when. It isn't often that the entire audience goes "awwwwwwwwwww" at the end of a movie. Perfect.
    Then of course there is For the Birds. That short got a huge round of applause.

    Interesting that there's little middle ground here. It seems to be one or the other "by far." Same for me, though...

    Monster Inc. for me. I just think nobody is coming close to Pixar when it comes to character animation. The characters seem so real, and I do not mean in a photorealistic sense, I mean they have personalities that are evident down to the way they move. The enormous work that takes comes across as seamless and effortless. I never consciously though "John Goodman, Billy Crstal, and Steve Buscemi" during Monsters Inc., whereas throughout Shrek, I was constantly aware of Mike Meyers, Eddie Murphy, and John Lithgow.
    I liked them both, though. Monsters Inc. just had a little more of what I personally respond to in an animated film. Now if this thread was Monsters Inc. versus The Iron Giant, I would have trouble getting off of the fence either way! [​IMG]
