The last thing I miss most is the most boring.
[Up] could easily have been cloying, but instead proves disarming in its deep reserves of narrative imagination and surprise, as well as its poignant thematic balance of dreams deferred and dreams fulfilled.
Extending the patented Pixar mix of humor and heart, Up is the studio s most deeply emotional and affecting work.
Pixar again raises the bar to wondrous new heights.
Pixar triumphs again with a delirious fantasy that has one leg in the real world of hopes dashed and realised and the other in the cartoon tradition of journeying and adventure.
As buoyant and richly tinted as the balloons that figure so prominently in its story, Up is also thoroughly grounded in real emotion and ideas of substance.
The overall look of the film, with its breathtaking aerial views of South American landscapes and its symbolic interplay of squares and circles, puts every other animation studio to shame.
The look of Up is a world away from Pixar s usual CGI intricacies -- simple in a way that only artists with a genius for complexity can achieve.
A film like Up makes it clear that Pixar has moved beyond the point where it feels the need to pander to children.
Rest assured, it gets funny. And it s thrilling, too, as the third act takes place almost entirely in the sky.
