Another step Up for Pixar

"Adventure is out there!" In the past, Pixar have tackled talking cars, washed-up superheroes, a rat who cooks and a mute garbage robot in a post-apocalyptic environment. For Up, the revered animation pioneers deliver something unexpected: a melancholy action-adventure concerning a 78-year-old widower and an obese young boy. No doubt on paper this idea seemed impetuous, but the Pixar squad have hi... read more

''I don't want your help, I want you safe.''

By tying thousands of balloon to his home, 78-year-old Carl Fredricksen sets out to fulfill his lifelong dream to see the wilds of South America. Right after lifting off, however, he learns he isn't alone on his journey, since Russell, a wilderness explorer 70 years his junior, has inadvertently become a stowaway on the trip.

As usual the Pixar brand delivers an exeptional piece of work. A sort of rollercoaster ride of highs and lows that tug away at the heart strings and, at times, leaves a tear in the eye. The story revolves around an explorer who has never had the time or funds to explore. Upon reaching his senior years and seeing the world around him change so radically he no longer feels to be a part of it. He dec... read more

“I love Pixar and feel they have been pretty consistent. True I do prefer Toy Story over Cars and Finding Nemo over Ratatouille, but I find their films amazingly animated and thrilling. I thought that after the first two Toy Story films, that Pixar wouldn't be able to make a film to top them. WALL-E, yes I loved it, came pretty close, but in my opinion Up is Pixar's masterwork. And why do I say that? Because it is widely imaginative and astonishing in its emotional range.

First of all, the animation is stupendous, beautiful backgrounds, beautifully drawn characters and stunning colours. The scenery and sights are just fantastic, down to the colour and visual detail that went into the film. Michael Giacchino's music is stunning as well, simple yet melodious and sublime. And I do ha” read more

“Young Carl idolised explorer Charles Muntz (who somehow looks a lot like Kirk Douglas) and his discovery of Paradise Falls somewhere in South America. Others regarded him as a quack and a fake, so Muntz disappeared.

Carl wanted to be an adventurer, he met young Ellie who was even more adventurous but real life got in the way. Now Ellie has passed and Carl is a grumpy old man living alone, hounded by property developers who are bull dozing the neighbourhood and want to see him in a retirement home.

Carl has tied his house with loads of helium balloons to float to Paradise Falls. He manages to take with him, an unwitting boy scout Russell who was just helping out an elderly person for a badge.

Both find adventures including a rare bird, talking dogs and a fallen” read more

"A cranky old man and an annoying little kid team up with a talking dog and a flightless giant mother bird named "Kevin", to embark on an semi-Indiana Jones type of adventure. No, no, that's the romance that places this movie on this list, ya buncha weirdos. It's the opening sequence at the beginning of the film that depicts how the cranky old man met the love of his life, Ellie, when they were little kids, became fast friends, then grew up, fell in love, got married, started a life together,"
