Up (2009)

The untouchable Pixar Animation Studios (WALL-E, Toy Story) presents their latest film. Famed for stories about unlikely characters (ants, fish, rats, robots), they now turn their attention to old men.

Carl Fredricksen is our seventy-something hero, who one day attaches a whole lot of balloons to his house and takes flight. Along for the ride is a young clueless boy scout. Together they travel to South America to search for a legendary waterfall.

Academy Award, BAFTA and Golden Globe winner for Best Animated Film and Best Score, 2010.

A captivating odd-couple adventure that becomes funnier and more exciting as it flies along.

A coming-of-old-age story that breaks the heart, tickles the funny bone and fires the imagination, Up is a captivating, exuberant delight. And did we mention it contains The Greatest Moment In Movie Animation? Oh.

Passages of glorious imagination are invariably matched by stock characters and banal story choices.

This is another masterwork from Pixar, which is leading the charge in modern animation.

Pixar's best film since, well, the last one.

Rarely has any film, let alone an animated one powered by the logic of dream and fantasy, been able to move so successfully -- and so effortlessly -- through so many different kinds of cinematic territory.

Winsome, touching and arguably the funniest Pixar effort ever, the gorgeously rendered, high-flying adventure is a tidy 90-minute distillation of all the signature touches that came before it.

If it had lived up to its golden first five minutes, Up would have been the film of the decade. As it is, it remains the best animated flick of 2009, a funny, moving, beautifully made argument that dreamers can move mountains.

A glorious film - funny, moving, nicely inspirational, and gorgeous to look at. Whether you see it in 2D or 3D, I guarantee you will leave the cinema happy that you were there.

Beautiful. The opening 5 minutes is a beautiful love story that puts just about every 90-minute Hollywood romance to shame. Witty, well-paced, great script, lovely gags, beautiful to behold on the big screen and a delight for all ages. A modern fairy tale that's fun and fast and not too soppy - all this and a talking dog too! "I love you, even though...

The movie is really four distinct acts each with different pace and emotional focus: Boy meets girl; Old boy meets young boy; Boys meet animals; Boys and animals live happily ever after. Emotionally it sits clearly in the Disney camp. No wonder they bought them out - "I liked the movie so much I bought the company."

I took two of my daughters (13 and 15) to see this movie simply because there wasn't much else on for their age group, so wasn't expecting much. They spent most of the time going 'awwww! that's so cute" or 'awww! that's so sad', and decided it was 'the cutest movie ever'. I have to agree. It's brilliant.
