Disney/Pixar’s Up

Last Sunday, we decided to go to the theater to see Disney/Pixar’s Up. We saw the 2D version but I can’t imagine how it would have been any better in 3D. Disney and Pixar have an incredible history of great storytelling and this movie was no different. It was extremely well done. The story has ample amounts of action and comedy to appeal to the younger audience. It also contained several references to some of great movies of the past that only the older kids or adults would get. What was interesting to me was that this movie had a wonderful human element that made it very touching in a couple of places. So much so, that both Kristi and I were misting up for about 30 seconds near the end of the movie.

Pixar movies have always been awesome but the last five have each been better than the last. They rank among my all-time favorite movies. For those that can’t remember which ones I’m talking about, they are: The Incredibles, Cars, Ratatouille, WALL-E, and Up. We currently own the DVDs for two of these as well as Monsters Inc. (another awesome film). I can’t wait to get the rest of them as well. They are fun to watch over and over.
