Up

Posted by Strider on Monday, June 1, 2009

Did anyone else go see Pixar's latest film this weekend?

I thought that Up was all sorts of awesome, especially in how well the characters were animated. Every character's movements were done with a superb attention to detail. The movie also looks gorgeous, and it was both funny and touching. The first ten minutes and the last couple are particularly heart-wrenching. Pete Doctor seems to have a knack for portraying the bittersweet both here and in Monsters Inc.

I loved how "Kevin" felt like an intelligent creature, but not a human in a bird's body. I loved how Doug was so polite (and "Point!" was just hilarious). I loved the Star Wars reference towards the end. I loved the duel between the old guys. I loved it when Russell went after the "bad guy" on his own (especially his mode of transportation). I loved how Ellie is a driving force through the whole story and we feel how much Carl loves her, yet she is technically only in the movie for the first little bit. I loved Russell's real motivations behind getting his "Assisting the Elderly" badge.

There are so many nuances to this movie that I'm sure I missed a ton of stuff the first time through. If you were on the fence about seeing Up, jump off the fence and just go. Up is Pixar at their very best, and I think it turned out to be something pretty special.

I fully plan on seeing this movie this week, probably wednesday when I am off. I am very excited about seeing it.

I just got back from seeing this, and I fully agree. It is emotional, exciting, and funny. Ellie and Carl's life together was beautifully shown, and his transformation from wide-eyed kid to adult to grumpy old man waiting to die, and then back into a functioning person was a great story.

Oh, and I want one of those collars for my dog :)
