UP 

 

I have paid attention to Disney Pixar for years now. The majority of their franchises have been very well received. So I was interested in seeing what UP was like, and about. The story follows a boy (Carl) who meets a girl. They are both into adventure. They wind up getting married, but not able to have kids. They grow old together, and she winds up dying. He is all alone in the house while developers are reworking the entire neighborhood around his house. After they mess up his mailbox, and he lashes out, the courts are removing him. The day of his removal he floats his house away. The little scout boy Russell tags along, and they wind up meeting a rare giant bird. The final member of their party is a talking dog Dug.

The animation is fantastic in UP. Pixar is really good at what they do. Kids may get scared by a few images where dogs are threatening people. The dogs even bite the bird at one point. There is a little blood. The violence is very mild in UP. There are some fantastic images of helping others, and family on this Blu-ray and DVD. UP has a lot of colors in it that are generally bright.

The music in UP is top notch. The voice actors show a wide range of emotions. Even the bird has vocal cues that fit the theme of the movie. I have seen quite a few Disney Pixar films, and UP has to be one of the most humorous. I found myself laughing at quite a few situations, and comments in this movie. The message of family being important rings true in UP.

The package we reviewed contains the Blu-ray(2), DVD, and Digital copy discs. I really enjoyed the special features in UP. Partly Cloudly, Dug’s Special Mission, and Married Life were some of my favorites. I also enjoyed the feature where the group of employees went to South America and climbed one of these mountains. I feel that UP is worth the price of admission.

The menu screens exhibit an intelligent design, and are easy to move around in. I found no problems moving around the menu screens. I love the story in this movie, and how family friendly it is. UP is a movie that all ages of the family can enjoy. I appreciate how the main characters are young, and elderly - two groups that are not always respected in our culture.

UP teaches the importance of family. It also shows how important dreams, the elderly, and letting go are. There are a lot of lovable characters in UP. I would like to see a sequel to this movie. It was my personal pleasure to be able to watch, and review UP. I will be recommending UP to friends, family, and pastors I know.
