Up (2009)

Pixar is so consistent that it seems the only review necessary is to say whether or not each new film upholds the studio’s lofty standards. This does, and then some. The first ten minutes alone are a magnificent demonstration of amazing storytelling. The rest of the picture doesn’t quite measure up to those first ten minutes, but it is still entertaining, clever, engaging, and…sad. This movie will yank your heartstrings like no other Pixar film since the first Toy Story. My one negative: the 3D did not add to this picture at all, and in fact, the glasses had a horrible dimming effect on the picture. I sorely wished halfway through the movie that I hadn’t opted for the 3D screening, and took the glasses off for a greater portion of the rest of the picture. 8/10
