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.
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…
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!
Another classic from Pixar. Their top notch consistency perplexes me.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
It feels like I can never stop watching this film the horrible ordeal of losing his wife but continuing on with her dreams of adventure with a dog and Boy Scout looking for trouble. I love a good adventure I love going fishing getting some friends and having some laughs. I think the kid was really needed to help the widow keep going on and look at the positivity his wife had always had in life and that really appealed to me. The skit in its always sunny in philly also used the basis of the story line to add to their hi jinks and in a show where a lot of bad stuff happens it was still a sentimental story.
Builds on the adventure films of the 30's and is simply delightful. My youngest was such a combination of scared and excited that she had to watch running round, and in and out of, the room.
i love it.
It may just be my opinion that this is the first Pixar film to truly live up to the hype, but it's an objective statement of fact that the opening life together montage is by far the most astonishing thing they've ever done. There's no hope of topping that, but hey, at least the rest of the film manages to work in the requisite talking animals in a pretty clever way.
A triumph of human achievement. If there is one thing we as a race have done that has in anyway justified our existence, it's this film. Tragic, beautiful, hilarious, whimsical, rapturous in its celebration of simplicity. An all-time favourite. Perhaps THE favourite.
Don't get me wrong, this is a brilliant film, but it's not one of my favourites for some reason. The first 10 minutes break my heart into a thousand pieces every time, which makes me resent pixar. Once i'm over that, the film itself is not quite as funny as I think it should be, after such a horrific trauma? I could be wrong.
I do however adore the dogs (all of them), especially the baddie whose voice is hilariously shrill.
From Disney comes a wonderful story about chasing your dreams and holding onto what makes you happy. Mr. Fredericksen, Russell, Dug, and Kevin are off on the adventure of a lifetime to Paradise Falls in a flying house. It is Mr. Fredericksen's dream to go there for most of his life but he encounters many struggles along the way. I mean, it wouldn't be a Disney film if it didn't make you cry in the first 10 minutes right? But it was really good and such an original story, it's hard not to enjoy.
The adventure was real all the way through this film, with sad, happy, funny, and even outrages parts. The movie was beautiful and fun to watch, with the two main characters on an unbelievable adventure to Paradise falls it is one of my top 5 animated films I have watched.
Chances are the first movie you ever saw was animation. Exuberant, colorful and full of wonder, animation is the stuff…
