Up

I really, really enjoyed this movie. It's been a while since I've seen one of the recent Disney computer-animated movies, but my students insisted I take in Up. This movie takes the viewer through a whirlwind of emotions - some parts are happy and funny, other sad, heartbreaking, and heartwarming. I especially loved the montage between Carl and his wife Ellie. I found there to be a lot of depth considering this is meant to be a kid's movie.

If you haven't seen Up, go! You won't be disappointed.
P.S. My favorite character was Russell the Wilderness Explorer, if you see it, you'll understand!

I keep hearing such great things about this movie. I don't think it's out yet in Sweden, but I really want to see it. When they do release it, though, it will be dubbed since it's "kids" movie. So I think it's better just to wait for the dvd, sadly...

I can't count how many people have posted about their love for this movie!! It's so incredible. I agree with you about the montage...within the first ten minutes, I was like, "Wow...did we just see a miscarriage?" And Russell...THE sweetest animated child ever, right?

I cried at least four times...and still walked out feeling like I wanted to hug everyone around me.
