Similarities in movies

I just figured it out: The Matrix[Wiki] is the same story as Monsters, Inc[Wiki]. In both, person living in the human world discovers that they're being enslaved and terrorized to create energy for another world. Think about it: Sully as Morpheus; Boo as Neo; that whole door scene versus Neo fighting off a gazillion attackers. This is just waaaay too similar.

Nope. In Monsters, Inc the children aren't enslaved, just exploited. But there are parallells involving doors in the new one.

Ahhh... but the evil Monster in Monsters, Inc. did want to enslave the children. Maybe Monsters, Inc. is the prequel to The Matrix!
