    Pixar can do no wrong in my book and Up looks like it will be great. Hopefully the 3-D aspect of it won't disappoint.

    WHAAAT?!

    Okay, this isn't the thread to argue about that, but still...WHAAAT?!

    Well, I am excited about this, anyway. I may actually do the 3D. I think it may be worth the extra two-dollars for admission.

    First trailer for Toy Story 3 will be attached to UP. Also did anyone catch the house from UP flying over Springfield in the Simpsons season finale? Pretty cool.

    I'm really looking forward to seeing this one, since I've enjoyed every Pixar movie except Ratatouille (which I still haven't gotten around to watching) and Cars (which I refuse to watch...but will eventually have to). Unfortunately, the RotF toy release means I'm probably not going to catch Up on opening weekend, but the first weekend in June will be close enough.

    Definite pass on the 3-D version, though. Those glasses are a pain in the ass trying to use with eyeglasses.

    I've been really burnt out on animated movies, but UP looks awesome and I might actually see it in theaters.

    Looks fun. Probably won't see it in theatres, but I'll probably buy it.

    Pixar is never ceases to amaze me. Up instantly became, for me, one of Pixar's classics. They just know how to push all the right emotional buttons. And never does it feel forced.

    It is the most mature Pixar film to date. It doesn't have a "dark" setting per se like WALL-E, but certainly wasn't just made for kids, and lots of extremely serious subject matter may have to be explained if you're with little kids.

    It was the first time I felt so much peril in a Pixar film. There is actual tension throughout the film, keeping the audience engaged.

    The movie is funny. Especially if you like dogs.

    Up has a unique feel and style to it. It's instantly Pixar, but it's unlike any other Pixar film.

    The soundtrack is superb. Michael Giacchino is the next big thing. The music defines scenes and the moods so well, but never intrudes into the movie.

    And since this is a Pixar film, the visuals are superb. I shouldn't need to explain why. Extremely well thought out "cinemaphotography" creates many memorable scenes.

    Up and WALL-E are modern American masterpieces. They're more than just kid movies. They are good for anyone who's looking an escape from a jaded age filled with violence and deceit.

    If you're thinking about watching it eventually, I'd say that's a mistake. The film is gorgeous, and the 3D effect works so well.

    I am going tonight with the fam and really looking forward to it.

    Wall-e seemed to have a very profound effect on my daughter. She actually cried at the end because she thought Wall-e was going to die. It was weird to see this from her because she was 5 at the time and doesn't really get emotional about stuff like that...
    The only Pixar film that I did care for was A Bugs Life.

    Still looking forward to 9 more, but this will be a must see this weekend, because Pixar has yet to disappoint me.
