I let my kids see a couple of the characters from the behind the scenes section first, so they would appreciate the movie a l... read more

Since I kept hearing good things about this flick, I got really intrigued and I definitely wanted to check it out. Eventually, I really did like it a lot but, somehow, it didn’t really blew me away though. First of all, on a technical level, it was indeed a really impressive feature.

" The Ups: Impressive fantasy without a single human in it and instead the film is filled with great creations from Jim Henson's puppet factory.
