So, I burned an hour of vacation time to sneak off to a sneak preview of the less-than-sneaky new Disney/Pixar movie, “UP”.
I had seen the teasers and, by them, I knew we were in for a treat…but it blew me away. Simple story with a few twists, amazing animation, great voices and enough action and emotion to make you say, “Dang! THAT’S a great movie!”
I’m not a reviewer, because they look for faults in a movie. I try my best to just show up and decide in a 20,000 foot view of the movie, “Did it work?”
It worked alot. It made me teary-eyed, jump a couple of times and on the edge of my seat.
It’s a tough act for Pixar. Tell a story that you know young kids will want to see, but keep it interesting enough to entertain adults.
“Up” succeeds. Maybe a tad too intense for the youngest of the young….but it passed one of my acid tests: YES, I already want to see it again.
Please, don’t go expecting the greatest movie ever made. Just go for an experience and you won’t be disappointed.
Good stuff.

Here’s the trailer
