there's a thing where you adds 'in my ass' to the end of a movie title, so here are some…
Fly Up to Venezuela
After a lifetime of dreaming of traveling the world, 78-year-old homebody Carl flies away on an unbelievable adventure with Russell, an 8-year-old Wilderness Explorer, unexpectedly in tow. Together, the unlikely pair embarks on a thrilling odyssey full of jungle beasts and rough terrain.
Your kids have to see you cry sometime.
One hundred years from now, film scholars will study the 15 wordless minutes near the beginning of this movie as one of the finest examples of storytelling across any medium or genre. I say this without threat of hyperbole.
Watched in preparation for Pete Docter's newest film, Inside Out.
Although I like Up quite a bit, I still don't find it to be the masterpiece other people say it is. Yes, it goes without saying that the first ten minutes are absolutely brilliant, flawless even. From the opening bit of exposition to the utterly astonishing montage showing the relationship between Carl and Ellie over the course of several decades, the filmmakers managed to create possibly the greatest thing to come out of the studio. Hell, it might even be one of the greatest movie moments of the 21st century! Every single time I watch it, I'm completely taken by the craftsmanship put into the visual composition, musical accompaniment, and…
The first ever animated feature film to inaugurate the Cannes Film Festival & one of the only three works of animation to have been nominated for Best Picture Oscar so far, Pixar’s Up is a profoundly intimate human drama, a rollicking adventure, a heartwarming romance, a joyous coming-of-age tale & a rib-tickling comedy, all extraordinarily blended into one gorgeously rendered masterpiece that not only succeeds as one of the best works of Pixar Animation Studios but deserves to be ranked amongst the greatest films ever made.
Commencing its story with what’s unquestionably the finest opening scene in any Pixar film to date, Up tells the story of an old grumpy widower who, in order to avoid going to a retirement home, ties…
After watching The Pixar Story earlier this week I was keen to revisit some of my overlooked Pixar films, not to mention today was the day of my Grandfather's funeral, so things seemed all the more poignant.
I don't know if it's because my emotions were high or if this film is just stunning or maybe a little bit of both, but everything was resonating with me on a deep level. The ultimate odd-couple movie, the characters should be annoying and grating, but they never are. It's such a delicate study in what it means to grown old, what it means to be young and all that happens in between. The way you shut out life and the way you…
You're fooling no one with this subversive Viagra metaphor, Pixar!
I didn't cry in the beginning of this movie. I just want to put that out there but this is an awesome film with great emotions, great animation, and amazing characters.
Very interesting & colourful. This is best. My most favourable cartoon picture of all times.
"Gotta be an easy five stars" - Joey Ellis
Always a fa of Ed Asner so I was eager to see this when it came out but missed the chance and somehow had not been able to see it in the meantime.
This seemed like a great departure for a Pixar movie, dealing with much more serious territory, including aging, retirement, death, and loss. I may need to see it again, but I found the story just too split between the very serious loss and the wild fantasy elements. That said, it was pretty fun and I wish I could have seen it in the theater.
next time ur weeping at this remember people like carl & ellie voted for brexit
Would have given even fewer stars but for the fantastic montage at the beginning, which was the most moving work of anination I had seen in years. Unfortunately, everything wend downhill from there.
Talking superdogs unite as an airforce command to hunt down a kid and an old man in a flying house? Come on, Pixar, you can do better!
Cried like a little girl.
Help me out with this one guys.
