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.
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.
December Challenge Film #28
The first 11 or so minute of this film alone are one of the great love stories ever put to film. By the time we see Carl Fredricksen sitting alone holding the balloon, I already feel connected to the characters, appreciate the love they have for each other, and am heartbroken by the final, inevitable result of a lifetime spent together. I can't say that much about most full length romance films, and the reason for that is because what Pete Docter, Bob Peterson and the rest of the people at Pixar that played a role in this film did here was pure magic.
You could argue that those first 11 minutes are the finest of…
the soundtrack kills my ass
[MY FAVORITE MOVIE]. This movie is one of my favorite movie of all time. I mean the score is good and the animation is amazing.
Wonderful stuff that only Disney and Pixar could do.
A note on the viewing: Viewed in HD at 2K via Walt Disney Studios UK's Blu-ray release. It looks stunning. Beyond amazing.
I didn't think that I could love this film more. But then I watched it in Blu-Ray...
The best animated film of all time? Probably not. My favorite animated film of all time? Sure.
On TV tonight, won't have internet so can't update tomorrow, instead I'm putting it in early :)
Such a great movie, though, I'll watch it every time it's on TV, or in theatres, and occasionally because I feel like watching it. Obviously.
My favorite Pixar film. People rightfully talk about that perfect opening 10-minute sequence, but the rest of the film is built on that emotional foundation. I find myself, cheering, laughing and getting verklempt in equal measure. A perfect movie.
No words can describe how awesome this movie is. Seriously. If it had a porch, I'd hide beneath it. Because I love it.
I've enjoyed every Pixar movie I've seen, including this one, but does anyone else agree that this one is a little...different? They start out with the tear-jerking scene so early on, then nothing like it again. The story is fun and entertaining, but definitely not as much as others they've made. It was hyped to the moon, but I only made it into the upper ionosphere, I think. Haha.
