Up was one of the only summer movies of 2009 that I wasn't able to catch in theater. I've always been fascinated by the Pixar movies with the exception of the last one I saw in 2008, Wall-E which can be found on my list of the Top 5 worst movies ever. My brother and his fiancee have seen Up and told me that it was a disappointment. How could this be since the reviews have been mostly positive and there is even talk of Up being included in the Oscar Best Picture race? I just watched Up, and thoroughly enjoyed the film. A real touching story about an old man, Carl, with one more adventure left. With the exception of the annoying kid Russell whose voice over was nothing short of annoying, I liked all of the characters. You also know I have a critical ear for the music score. Although Michael Giacchino still hasn't wowed me yet with a music score, his work in this movie might be some of his best stuff to date. I wouldn't say this movie was better than the creme de la creme of Pixar movies in my mind (Toy Story, Toy Story 2, Cars, & Finding Nemo) or deserving of a Best Picture nomination, but Up was definitely a creative masterpiece and an entertaining film.
