Up

After last year’s 20-minute ode to Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey in Wall-E Pixar is at it again with a touching sequence of two kids sharing a passion or the wilds of South America and their marital union – the bliss of living and loving and the woes of losing loved ones in Up.

The film was the first animation in Cannes history to open the festival and it got rave reviews from critics and viewers. Since it was in 3D I vowed to watch the visuals in the x-y-z axis and the P300 I paid was worth it.

The animation was simply stunning. The colors vibrant. The plot engaging. I laughed it out with the kids and mentally noted the “Thanks for the adventure. Now go have a new one.” message. I thought, even in the darkened theatre with two glasses – presciption and 3D – perched uncomfortably on the bridge of my nose, that Ellie’s note might come in handy in the future. It is a darn good break-up line.

Pixar yet again does not disappoint.
