I absolutely loved this movie! Then again, there isn't a Pixar film I haven't enjoyed! I, too, cried within the first 10 minutes of the film and then had to laugh because the whole audience was extremely silent.

I loved this film, it's just a shame that the 3D gave me a headache. It's not my favourite, but it's still very good.

Absolutely mind-blowing. UP there with the classics.

Here's hoping they're showing Alice at a nearby cinema - loads are boycotting the movie because the DVD's coming out about 3 months after the cinema release, which is earlier than usual.

I'm a Burton fan and an Alice hater, so we'll see what my reaction to this will be :) Trailer looks... weird, which might be a good thing.


Oh and UP was great. Squirrel!

A greatly entertaining work, whose care, workmanship and creative courage are rarely found in mainstream films animated or otherwise.

Up is by far the most emotional human drama of any Pixar movies thus far, very heavy, so much so if you're looking for pure fun with some jaw-dropping chase and/or thematic scenes and no downer moments, Up may not be for you. I saw it in a packed theatre of about a 65% adult, 35% adult split audience and it's the only time I can remember being in Any animated movie where there was sniffles and watery eyes, and that was within the first 10 minutes of the movie.

I had to cry too... :cry: It's such a beautiful movie, although I can't understand how come the soundtrack won an Oscar... I thought it wasn't that special... Liked Sherlock Holmes Soundtrack more (OK, I'm partial, because of Hans Zimmer, but still...)
Listen.

My only complaint with Up is that the beginning didn't seem to fit with the rest of the film. I think the beginning might have worked better on it's own as a short (certainly felt like thats how it was originally intended)
