This is what happens when your car breaks down on a Sunday morning and you have nothing else to do…
Fly Up to Venezuela

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!
These stars are dedicated to Kevin.
(Probably the quaintest Pixar film I have ever seen. Unique story and characters, plus an aesthetically pleasing background. It's swell!)
This movie is just great! I love it! I watch everytime I have some kind of sickness. It really demonstrates that letting go of an object with memories tied to it does not mean that you are letting go of the.memory and that life is full of of adventure.
I cry for the first ten minutes of this film and throughout it. I can only hope in my lifetime that I can find someone to be the Ellie to my Carl. This is truly a stunning film that warms and breaks my heart.
A tear-jerking amazing Pixar movie.
It's the only animated film I know, that can bring an adult to tears, fits of giggles, and wow them which such beautiful shots within the first 10 minutes.
The opening sequence is among the best Pixer has ever done. When it circles around to him looking back at the scrapbook in Act 3, people are crying. The girls next to me were bawling. But the rest of the movie I could do without. I hate the dogs, I don't care about this lousy villain. Overall, lower-tier Pixar.
This movie is absolutely perfect. The characters, villain, motivations, storytelling, animation, you name it. This movie's got it all.
