You can skip movies 10 times but never go back.
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!
A) Movies with houses moving in unconventional ways
(2) The Meaning of Life
(3) You, the living
B) all those movies are great
C) my recipe for making a great movie: have a house in it that moves in unconventional ways
Up includes Pixar's saddest scene ever, and is simultaneously one of its best efforts.
C'mon, what other time do you get to see a shotgun in a Pixar film?
great animation movie
A thing I noticed and liked was Carl's beard growing while he was in Peru. I suppose it's the boring things you remember.
This movie is so incredible. I mean the opening sequence alone is some of the most beautiful animation ever created. The rest of the film is so wonderful and creative. It features such unique characters and creative stories. Such a beautiful film.
WALL-E is their best, but this isn't far behind. It's perhaps the most beautifully animated film ever made. It's 'near perfect' yet 'let down' by a slightly underwhelming final third. However, the opening montage alone makes this a modern classic.
i want to kill myself
Charmingly cranked out in Pixar house style, full of cute nods to other things, a high-order pastiche and gorgeously animated. Dug is a major coup. Perhaps it was the drugs but not much of it stayed with me.
The sticking point for me is the use of Ellie, who is cynically deployed. She's the prologue that explains why Carl is a solitary curmudgeon. Plot magic reveals to our unlikely hero the push he needs at the narrative low point to pursue his own adventure, a letter from his departed beloved. She's rendered so lovingly and vividly in the opening movements of the film that it's disappointing to see her dispatched so soon and existing entirely in support of her husband's…
Help me out with this one guys.
