UP

(click on "DUG" to go to the movie website)

UP: One of the most entertaining Disney-Pixar productions ever! Wholesome entertainment for the whole family, young and old alike. Rottentomatoes ratings on UP stood at 97% at the time this author visited the site.

A tale of a 78-year old ballon salesman named Carl Friedreksen whom wife, Ellie passed on before their dreams of going to Paradise Falls were realised and how he conquered the loneliness of being...welll....alone....

Carl lived a life of solitude until one fine day when a young but seriously 'wet-behind-the-ears' Wilderness Explorer (scout) named Russell knocked on his door...

From that point onwards, as the story unfolds, life would never be the same for the both of them...

Then, there was DUG, one of my favourite characters in the movie....a loving canine which is pure at heart but missing a few tools in the shed (if you know what I mean) which Carl and Russell chanced upon in the movie...


This animation bundles up good laughter and hilarious moments! The uncanny camaraderie of 3 in Paradise Falls, a place Carl had always dreamt of going as a child leads them into an adventure they'll never forget...complete with an exotic bird named Kevin (who incidentally is female), an obsessed adventurer Charles Munz and a pack of talking dogs who flies airplanes and operates and airship! Sounds interesting? Well...

I recommend you go watch this one. Don't forget your popcorn and soda...essentials for a cinematic experience...

I rate this movie an 8.5/ 10
