I’ll keep this short. I’ve got one sentence for you. “Up” might be the best Pixar movie ever.
Pixar’s the people who brought you Monsters Inc., Toy Story, The Incredibles, Wall-E, and Ratatouille. And this movie, for me, was the best of them.
This is a beautiful film. Yeah, it’s billed as a comedy adventure kind of thing and about an unwilling friendship between a 78-year-old grumpy old man and a child. It’s hilarious at times. But it’s also incredibly touching.
Sure, it’s a cartoon. But make no mistake about it, it’s art. And it’s honestly one of the best movies I’ve seen in years. Not to wax poetic here but it’s about loving and letting go. And living when you didn’t think you had anything to live for. It’s about dreams and the turns life takes.
It’s about how life (even in the little boring moments) is an adventure and I was sitting in the movie knowing that as much as my kids loved it, I know I loved it more.
Go see UP.
