Fresh: 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.
- David Edelstein, New York Magazine, Wednesday, May 27, 2009
Fresh: Pixar's latest hero is a septuagenarian, misanthropic crank. And this film is all about him. It shouldn't work. We shouldn't like him, or want to watch him. But we do. You will. And you'll love it.

Fresh: The lessons of Up lift us, even as they ground our heroes in what really matters.

One of the most enjoyable and moving films of 2009. Being not the biggest fan of animation films (apart from the Toy Story films), I was astonished that an animated feature could unearth such emotions in me. It was a truly splendid film to witness, it immediately engages and then never lets you go. The absurdity of the plot is executed so well as you start to forget the inconceivableness of a house held up by balloons. The characters are loveable - Russell is hilarious and Mr. Fredrickson captivates and instantly makes you empathise. The dialogue is amusingly written and the story is enchanting. I really can't praise this film enough, a beautiful film, and its a special event to witness.

Certainly not the greatest thing Pixar has ever done, but "Up" is a fine, fine film nonetheless. Though the first twenty-five or so minutes are absolutely beautiful, when the house went "Up," my interest level went down. I just didn't find the actual intrigue of the plot all that fascinating. However, after the climax occurs, the denouement finds once again the beauty the opening part of the film so wonderfully displayed. The Oscar-winning score of the film is also definitely worth a mention. Its captivating refrain is used perfectly in the various situations throughout the film; the music will stay with you for days.
