"UP" IS NOT AMONG PIXAR'S FINESTS
And I thought PUBLIC ENEMIES was going to be the last disapointment of the year. Think again. UP, the 10th movie of Pixar, has a very creative idea for a storyline but fails to develop it. A journey than promises to be bigger than life is only big because we have one of the best animated character ever - Carl Fredricksen, probably the most deep and real character we have ever seen in an animated picture. And Carl, with the voice of Ed Asner, is our guideline and our emotional attach to this movie. Him and 1000 ballons. UP fails when dogs appears (you'll see) or when the ending is too poor for a Pixar movie.
That's probably the problem with Pixar right now. We expect Pixar to be bigger and better n any new movie. Althought all this criticism, UP is still one of the best pictures of the year, so far [My God, mid August and I still thing THE HANGOVER is the best picture... ]. UP will easily win the Oscar for best animated feature and I'm not 100% he can get a best picture nod. I hope UP can make it, after WALL.E unfairly missed it.
