If there's a 'When in Rome' trailer that runs before the movie? It's a Touchstone release, so you'd figure Disney would put it in front of one of its A-1 releases for the whole year. <p> Thanks.

On my part, Not the review. Sounds like a fun movie.

on the big screen from a variety animators who don't produce formulaic CG fluff (continue on with your Pixar/Dreamworks bloc).

That's why I don't believe all these glowing up reviews. It's probably good, but no way to be sure as people just love Pixar because it's Pixar. And I don't think that 2D = 3D...I haven't seen this film but it sure made a HUGE difference with Beowulf.

That is so true. I am tired of all this retarded stupid animation movies that involve animals and shit like that. Thank God Pixar exists. They take a step forward and actually let us have fun with the animation and characters.

That's all I needed to know. I'm there.

You did read the review right? Capone is saying FOR THE FIRST TIME the 2D version doesn't lose anything from the 3D. ie: any 3D film that has come before it has been made better by 3D, but Up is as great in both formats. He's not saying 2D=3D, in fact he says for all previous films the exact opposiste is true. He's pretty clear on that, can't see how you missed it.

There are several theaters in my area showing this in 3-D!! Woohoo!!

Hope they don't close, of course! But they are synonymous with great filmmaking, not just animation (which is second to none, as we all know) and nothing can take that away from them.

I belong to one of those "survey" sites, and sometimes they have us watch early trailers and give feedback/reactions/opinions. I LOVE Kristen Bell, but what I've seen does not make me overly excited about the flick. All the "suitors" are just annoying and caricatures.

Has there ever been a Pixar movie that got a less than stellar review? It just seems completely pointless to write an essay about the Pixar "quality" formula at this point. The films are all of a type; and if you love that "type," it's obvious that you'll be a fanboy for the next remarkably similar product.

Sad that there is a ton of great animation worldwide, mainly in short format, that gets no distribution. I collect as much of it as I can. Doesn't stop me from loving what Pixar does. They at least inspire.

Is this site getting worse by the day? Have all the reboots, rehashes, sequels, remakes, and reimaginings turned the collective staff brain to mush?

Definitely seeing this flick this weekend. Had my doubts as to whether Pixar was getting a little too artsy-fartsy, but this looks like fun. I already love that dog. And I'm so ready to see an intelligent toon after suffering through that lousy Monsters vs. Aliens crapload. Maybe "Up" will do a little pushing back against the notion that only Dreamworks makes "fun" toons anymore. Sure hope so...

"the message about never giving up on your childhood dreams is front and center here, and that's inspiring as hell. We could all use that reminder on a regular basis." Ha ha, if that's what you thought the message was, then you clearly weren't paying attention. The message is the OPPOSITE of that! The film says (blatantly and obviously if you were you paying attention): "Fuck your childhood dreams. Even if you reach your goal it won't be what you expect it to be. Fuck dreams and have real experiences and have real emotions with the people you love. And, if you don't have anyone to love, love someone new."

!@#$ YOU MCG!!!

This is the movie I wished Pixar had made just for me. Fantastic!
May 29, 2009, 1:35 p.m. CST
the first ten minutes are a tear-jerker indeed, and more adult oriented then previous Pixar products!!!
May 29, 2009, 1:41 p.m. CST
Let me first say that Capone, you are my favorite reviewer because I agree with you on damn near EVERY movie and so I read all your reviews. Now having said that, STOP PUTTING SO MUCH OF THE MOVIE IN YOUR REVIEWS!! I have to skip past a huge chunk cuz I don't want to know what's gonna happen scene for scene. Sheesh.

It's gonna take some kinda act of God to change my mind on that one. I smiled the whole damn movie. Today was a good day at the movies. <P> Drag Me To Hell was awesome as well.

I'm gonna miss 3-D when I buy the DVD.

Saw it yesterday. It had some grown men crying in the theater. I was not one of them, but it was decent. Not my favorite Pixar film. I think Wall-E tops that list.
