Critical Section

in praise of Up

Going Up!Last night Shirley and I saw Up, and I must tell you, it is fantastic!  Not just a great animated movie, not just a great 3D movie, but a great movie, period.  The opening sequence which sets the stage is amazing cinema, I think I was tearing up within the first five minutes.  But the movie just went Up from there, with great characters, wonderful action, and as usual with a Pixar film a great blend of a simple story with sophisticated undertones. 

You should see it, you'll love it.

PS we're not the only ones who liked it; I've never seen a movie get 98 at Rotten Tomatoes before.
