    Disney-Pixar's Up

    Fantastic movie. Pixar is the saving grace for Disney's Animation studios, that's for sure. Wall-e was an emotional film, and I admit I cried towards the end... but I was crying throughout Up. Fantastic ride of emotions. The attention to detail rivals (if not bests) Walt Disney's top 9 animators...

    if there was a flaw there were too many dumb dog jokes, but that's forgivable. You needed the levity in between the darker and more emotional storylines.

    Was it farfetched in some ways, yes, but that made it even more fantastic.

    Great 90 mins or so... totally worth seeing.

    Thanks, Toni. We'll definitely have to see this one. I understand it's a 3D movie as well. Just curious - is it only being show in 3D, or do theaters have options to show it in 2D?

    it's offered in 2D as well. I refuse to get into the 'retro 3D craze' (I went into the bellbottom pants kicking and screaming lol) I don't like 3D movies. They're fun for amusement parks as part of an attraction, but not so much for a two hour movie, IMHO.

    I took my niece and nephew to see it in 3D and it really wasn't neccessary to pay the extra $ for the 3D showings. There was 3d throughout, but it didn't add anything special to the movie.

    I enjoyed the movie a great deal - I did miss a critical part because the kids had to go to the bathroom. Sigh - it always seems to happen during an important part.

    I actually got a bit teary during the beginning when they were recapping his life.

    The kids didn't get the message of the movie, but my nephew enjoyed the dogs and the cub scout.

    My niece is really bad at paying attention during movies and she was the same during this one. Once they were up in the air, she was 'done'. The only movies she likes are musicals.

    The last three Pixar films have definitely been geared towards a more mature storyline and audience, but enough to keep the kids entertained. But I think that's how the first few Disney Classics are like as well... Snow White had some good parts for kids, but it's dark and mature... as is Pinnochio, Sleeping Beauty is pretty light but still has some dark undertones (and you gotta love that it was adapted from the ballet... even the music!)

    but that's just me

    There is only one Pixar film I did not love and that's Cars. That movie moved too slowly for me and didn't have enough laughs.
    Other than Cars though, I have loved every single Pixar film including the latest, UP.

    Did you know, Pixar is coming out with Toy Story 3 next summer? I adored Toy Story 1 and 2 so I can't wait for the third installment.
    However, Cars 2 is also coming the year after. Why would they want to make a sequel to Cars? Why not Incredibles 2 or Monsters Inc. 2 or Finding Nemo 2?

    My dad had tears when he told me about this movie. It sounds wonderful!

    Either you know something or you sound like you do. But sorry to say it generally sounds VERY bias when you comment about such matters. Maybe I need to follow the rule of "put J.M.O after everyones post. I guess we all do.
