UP! UP! UP!

I was blown away. I did NOT expect a child's movie to be so great. It started off very romantically and it had a sad beginning. And if you are the type to really get into a movie, towards the middle you were at the edge of your seat biting your fingernails. Some very young children might be frightened by it, but this is definitely a movie for all ages, definitely a movie you should see.

UP

I took two of my grandchildren, ages 7&9, thinking I would not care to much for the movie myself. WOW, it was good from the very start. The children kept thanking me for taking them. Hey, do not miss this movie if you have young children in the family. It is a clean and enjoyable movie for the whole family. You will be glad you spent the time and money on this movie. I would not mind taking the rest of the grandkids and seeing it again. Don't let your summer pass without "UP"! Get your popcorn before you go in, you won't want to leave it.

SQUIRREL !!!

To be honest I didn't really have any expectations for this movie, save for the silly short to appear in preview. I don't know why I tend to have an irrational aversion to Disney &/or Pixar films. But every time I see one I am happy I did. This movie was no exception. I walked in 'ho-hum' and walked out greatly impressed.

The first 15 minutes or so was a really brave start. They bring you up, so you're in a nice state, then immediately toss you into a closet full of misery. And then the movie starts. I am not sure it was necessary to do that, or if I would have enjoyed the movie less having not had my heart strings tied to a leaking balloon...

Character development was pristine! Each and every little twitch and mannerism was well placed, especially for an animated film. This is the Pixar gift. They really differentiate their characters well. There was so much life in every scene, and well placed 'hooks' that help with the trasition from one theme to the next. Characters changed seemlessly but within 'their capacity', and they did so. There wasn't some random drastic change where the characters suddenly were completely different people form the start of the film.

Visually the enviroment, while beutiful, was bland in my opinion. They could have done more, as they have with other films. It may have been intentional to keep more focus on the characters, but so much so it seemed like an afterthought.

Yes, go see it in the theater. but its not a requirement to enjoy this movie, but it does enhance the experience. I can't find a way to classify this as a five star movie however. Its not one I feel the need to see again.

UP - and away!

It's basically a kid's movie - but us big kids enjoyed it, too! The 3D is very good - the glasses are a minor inconvenience.
Wait no longer, go see it.

Don't Miss This
