What a great uplifting movie. The animation is wonderful, in fact I almost forgot that it was animated after 30 minutes. The story is completely 100% improbable, but so believeable and heartwarming.    Up is a road movie.

The first teary eyed moment. To avoid being hauled off to a retirement home, …

As Pixar makes more movies they seem to get more mature as they go along. Though their earlier films are great they seem positively simple in comparison to some of their most recent work.

There I am – a grown man – trying to maintain composure, while surrounded by a bunch of laughing children who no …

I took my 4 year old daughter to see Up and we both thought it was awesome. She said it was the best movie she had ever seen which is crazy since it did not involve a princess.    A couple of notes (No major spoilers but avoid if you are going to see it and don't want to know anything about the story or characters):    Humanity:  I couldn't believe how touching the story was. In a matter of minutes, the movie had me emotionally invested in the characters. …
