'Up' Review

Well - we saw "Up" last night! Everyone came over to my house for hot dogs on the grill beforehand. Then we all headed to the theater. With our $10.50 tickets!!! **hack hack cough cough** Because its 3D it cost 2 dollars more. YIKES. Pricey movie. But it was well worth it.



I happily give "Up" 5 GIANT STARS.



I don't even know where to start reviewing this wonderful movie. Pixar is the master storyteller. I didn't think I'd connect with the characters from what I saw in the trailers. But, oh my gosh! I was 100% invested in the story in the first 5 minutes of the movie. I don't want to give anything away. Don't read too much about it. All I can say is, see it. See it soon. Take your whole family. The little boy behind us (probably 4 years old) was giggling through the whole movie. It was adorable. I've been thinking about it all day. WONDERFUL WONDERFUL WONDERFUL MOVIE! (take some tissues)

  4. I saw the trailer on Youtube the other day and had been wanting to watch it ever since. But I checked the local cinema and saw that it won't be released until later in August over here in Malaysia, which sucks... :(

    Glad to see that you gave it 5 stars though.. :)

  6. Oh...good to know! I wasn't sure about taking my almost 4 year old to it, but maybe it would be fun. I didn't know if there were scary parts or not. I don't like her to see things that I haven't "reviewed" first! lol! =) Hmmm...off to find out where it's playing! Thanks for the review!

  9. I totally agree about the previews. It did not do it justice. We have a very fun drive in down here in the valley and we went and saw it the other night. I cried several times, my daughters all loved it and so did my husband. It was one of the best movies I have seen. Pixar outdid themselves again!

  11. We saw this on Tuesday as well. It was WONDERFUL. I haven't seen a movie in oh... 18 months and I LOVED it - so worth the $10.50 each to see in 3D too! We took both Rebecca and Rachel (4 1/2 and almost 2) and Rachel actually sat through half of it before moving and LOTS! But we went to a 4:30 showing so there were lots of other kids there too!
