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…
My favorite film of all time.
Can I give this film six stars out of five? Please?
Up is a perfect children's film and ranks alongside the Toy Story series and Wall-E for being some of Pixar's most captivating and beautiful work.
The film's emotional core is excellently realised with the opening credits alone causing me to fall in love with the characters. The dynamic between Carl, the uptight old man chasing a lost dream, and Russell, the bright eyed youth trying to impress his Dad by succeeding as a wilderness explorer, is absolutely perfect and makes for one of the most, surprisingly, believable and heartfelt journeys I've seen in any kids film.
Pete Docter and Bob Peterson excel with the visuals and the setting up in the air makes for a unique and fascinating backdrop to the storytelling.
If nothing else sells Up it is Kevin and Dug. Are these not the two most likeable animals to ever feature in a film?
This one is the best from Pixar
Loved it,so beautiful
the colors of Kevin, the fun of Russel and the flying house which is full of balloons looks so colorful
My favorite scene in the movie was when Carl looked through Ellie's "Adventure Book" and saw the photos of their enduring marriage inside with the final note of "Thanks for the adventure. Now have a new one!" A very simple yet powerful scene..
This one is Worthful to watch
Still the best animated movie, in my opinion.
