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.
Dad what's wrong?
Grown up stuff, sweetheart.
Daddy's just a bit afraid for the world.
Is it because of the Orange Hamster Man?
Are you sad?
Wanna watch a movie?
My kids know me so well.
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…
<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3 so cute everything
Can I confess I did actually cry 5 minutes into the movie?
the dog reminded me of my dog
Nice opening you got there, would be a shame if the rest of the movie... Wasn't as good!
no other movie played with my emotions as much as up did.
I wish "Up" was the opening of this film and "Up 2" was that bit where he sits in the chair and looks through the scrap book because fucking hell you'd have 2 of the most heartbreaking and well made short films of all time. Watch it for those moments. To be honest, they're the only parts you'll remember.
Animationsfilme haben es bei mir immer etwas schwer. Es ist zu oft der selbe Kram in grün und ich habe meist das Gefühl, dass ich das alles schon mal gesehen habe. Außerdem trauere ich immer noch dem guten alten Zeichentrick hinterher, der meiner Meinung nach einfach mehr Stil hatte.
Aber alle Jubeljahre kommt mal ein Film daher, der dann doch mal etwas anders macht. Hier haben wir so ein Beispiel.
Alleine die ersten 10 Minuten sind ganz groß und eigentlich schon eine komplette Geschichte im Zeitraffer. Danach fängt der Spaß dann aber richtig an, mit viel Fantasie und unterhaltsamen Charakteren. Die erste Hälfte ist dann gespickt von fantasievollen Einfällen und super. Nach der Hälfte driftet der Spaß dann leider so…
