Disney movies are just perfect. Pixar movies are spectacular. Add the two together and what do you have? Ok you have Finding Nemo, Monsters inc, The Incredibles and a whole host of other incredible movies; But surely after a while those at Disney Pixar have got to run out of the magic potion they must use to create such masterpieces?
Up is just glorious. In every aspect. The story line is slightly deeper this time round, touching the topic of miscarriage even, and the charming beginning scenes which show the life of Ellie and Carl Fredericksen are tearjerking even to the coldest of hearts. If you haven't found your soul mate when you watch this film, i guarantee you'll start the search after seeing the cute montage of their life together.
The film centres around Mr Fredericksen after the death of Ellie, who by this time is an elderly man, and a young over eager wilderness explorer, Russell. The juxtaposition of the two characters make for an entertaining storyline when Mr Fredericksen decides to float his house to Paradise Falls, which was a lifelong dream for his former wife, unaware of the visitor he has on his porch as he takes flight.
This film will please both children and adults whether in 3D or 2D. The setting is beautiful, the music is charming, and by the end of it you are left with a wonderful fuzzy feeling in your heart. This has fast become my favourite Disney Pixar movie yet (although it was a tough call between this and Monsters Inc…)
A delightfully charming 8/10 from me.
Bravo Disney Pixar, Bravo.
