Now that you've seen it, what did you think? Pixar is back again with their 10th feature film - Up. We all know the story, we all know the characters, but is it as incredible as every past Pixar movie? I've heard other friends of mine say that Carl and Russell just haven't captured his interested the way Remy or Wall-E or Sulley or Nemo or Mr. Incredible have previously. But is that just an early misconception? Is Up really one of the best movies of the year? Or just boring kid's entertainment? How does it rank up against other Pixar movies? Sound off below, leave your thoughts, and let us know what you thought of Pixar's Up!
To fuel the fire, I absolutely loved Up! By the time I went in to watch the entire movie, I had seen the opening half roughly three times, and I wasn't sure there would be much beyond that that could amaze me, but I was wrong. Up falls in line with every other brilliant Pixar movie to date and is already one of top my favorites. The two times I've seen it so far have moved me emotionally in a way that absolutely no other movie this year has (and probably never will). It's heartwarming, it's exciting, it's just plain wonderful. If you're nervous about it, don't be, go in expecting another great Pixar movie and you'll get just that.
What did you think of Pixar's Up? Is it one of Pixar's best or just another animated movie?
