Up, up, and awaaaaaaay!
Do you still remember the good ol’ days when you used to climb trees, swing around branches and dreamt of being a bold and daring adventurer? Or simply wanted to travel around the world, looking for lost lands and rare birds aboard a flying house tied unto a gazzilion ballons? Whatever your answer may be, this latest movie from Pixar is right for you!
A heart-warming story about a young boy’s quest of following the footsteps of a world-renowned adventurer, he instead meets the love of his life at a decrepit house right in his neighborhood. The two soon become a couple and built the house of their dreams together. Sharing the same spirit for adventure, they save every penny and nickel to fulfill their life-long dream of finding the “land of the lost”, Paradise Falls.
Unable to bear a child, they go through daily life hand in hand until his wife passed away, leaving him alone inside a big, empty house. An untoward incident forced him to hatch a plan to evade mediocre retirement home living, literally making him touch the clouds!
Pixar really did it this time. They do not know how to make an awful movie! (and that’s a very good thing!) The obvious attention to detail, evident in all Pixar films, and sharp wit of the characters are the strong points of this film. The story-telling was flawless. Comedic-timing and music was spot on every single time.
This film encourages viewers to take on seemingly impossible challenges, chase after long-forgotten dreams and to let go of things that may seem valuable to us, but actually are just holding us back.
The best and most compelling animated movie to date, Up is a movie that you should see at least once in your lifetime and definitely deserves a spot in any movie collection.
