Pros: amazing story, clean comedy, loveable characters
Up is truly a milestone movie in that it can be enjoyed by audiences of all ages. I am an 18 year old guy and, although I love a good avtion movie, Up is one of my all time favorites. I'm not a big fan of these animated darlings -- found "Nemo" OK, "Shrek" dull and "Wall-e" inane. But I really enjoyed "Up." Some quibbles with plot developments, but overall it was touching and sweet though still with a lot of grown-up appeal. With both dramatic and whimsical music, the audio section has you covered. Gorgeous visuals bombard you repeatedly, (in a good way) and the humor, though slightly childish at times, is a pleasure to behold. If you didn't like Wall-E, and are tentative about seeing this movie after the slightly depressing ride that it put you through, don't be. This movie is much ore enjoyable and heartwarming. Yet another steller movie from pixar. Up is an old-fashioned adventure story -- a throwback to the kind of breathless storytelling that made serials popular in the early days of movies. So much of the fun in watching Up comes from never quite being sure what thrill is right around the corner.
