Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
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.
*Watches yet again*
"Okay, I can make it through the opening this time. No tears. No crying. I AM A MAN."
*tiny stream reaches the side of my mouth*
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.
So you know.....it was ok.....some bits were very well done.....that young boy really made the movie for me.....once again i was in awe of the animators' work.....these amazing facial expressions that are so familiar and so beautifully captured and exaggerated. The other enjoyable aspect was the dogs.....who doesn't want a dog translator to be invented......?
One of the greatest animations ever. It looks amazing, the plot is pretty original, the movie was very funny. Pixar, when have you let me down?
Fine Pixar movie. The film's elderly main character is poignant and sad, which initially sets this apart from other more childlish CG animations. The story does eventually give way to childlish whimsy as the South American adventure begins. Good family movie, but was hoping for a bit more depth than the film initially showed potential for.
THE GIST: A delightfully charming film from the animation titans at Pixar, UP is simple, concise, moving, hilarious, and a masterful showcase of storytelling at its finest. Hailed as one of the best films of 2009, UP is gorgeously animated and filled with such original and memorable characters and content, it is no wonder that it has established itself as a modern classic. The famous opening is lush and emotional and provides a strong backbone for the adventure that follows. Seen as an "unfinished love story" and coming-of-age movie, UP reminds us of the kid in all of us, and it will make you laugh and cry and laugh again (and cry again), all in thanks to the terrific director,…
I have issues with this movie, and I think most people give it a pass because of the opening sequence. Ultimately, it's just a fun little adventure (with an AMAZING opening).
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Ultimately, the fanciful action sequences in Up overtake its spectacular drama beats—which are among the finest in Pixar's catalogue—leaving a film that, while entertaining, feels less cohesive (and less satisfying) than their classics.
I liked this film and it had everything from sad moments to really funny moments and some darker moments so really check this movie out you just might enjoy it
