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.
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.
Your kids have to see you cry sometime.
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…
This movie is so perfect it feels like a work of alchemy. The only way I can conceive of someone creating something this moving and funny and exciting is if they first went down to the crossroads and made a deal with Satan. I waffle on Pixar's greatest masterpiece (FINDING NEMO and MONSTERS INC. are usually my other contenders) but for now, I'm going with UP.
You're fooling no one with this subversive Viagra metaphor, Pixar!
A brilliant film about suddenly having to face life without your life-long partner. Having to come of age, when you're too old to do so, all disguised as an animated movie for children. Don't be fooled.
such a fun, beautiful movie, this.
O filme pode não ser tão bom assim mas sempre vou chorar no começo independentemente de qlqr coisa jesus
i cry every time
The opening sequence is for my money the most powerful piece of moviemaking yet to come from Pixar. Up never quite returns to the heady heights of its first quarter, but it is still a hugely enjoyable and wonderfully creative effort.
Now this is a film! I enjoy all of Pixar's films but find that once seen they're not exactly re-watchable. I struggle to finish Monsters Inc. or Finding Nemo with the same emotional joy that I had at first. Maybe it's just me. However, there are two that have complete control of me. Wall.e and Up.
A lot is made of the opening sequence, with it's emotionally devastating silence and it is great, but I think it's a condensed version of something equally achieved in Wall.e. They're machines with human emotions dammit!!!
However, the opening is brilliant and it's sadness seeps through the rest of the film, while allowing for periods of utter fun and mayhem. It's funny, charming, it…
'Up' is a film that I can see at any mood and at any time and still find it masterclass. Pixar's modern films don't achieve as high as 'Up', but they still haven't made a bad film. In my view 'Up' resembles Pixar at it's finest. It contains original characters and story, with an deep emotional theme that stays with you to the end. None of this is new for Pixar, but where this films stands above the rest is it tells a deeper story then most family animated movies can even imagine. A family film about the journey, not the destination. But I can discuss for hours about how impeccable of a movie this is, I think I should…
Dug: Hey, I know a joke! A squirrel walks up to a tree and says, "I forgot to store acorns for the winter and now I am dead." Ha! It is funny because the squirrel gets dead.
Sighhh. I think even the few detractors of Up can agree (or at least they fucking should, or else be put in the cone of shame): the opening montage with Carl and Ellie's beautiful, heartbreaking love story, from being children to growing old together, set to Michael Giacchino's exquisite music, is sheer, emotionally-affecting movie magic and it's probably the greatest storytelling sequence Pixar has produced thus far... not sure if anyone forgets or is displeased with that part when recollecting the film.…
I think they should make a second one, but then again i feel like it would me really bad.
