Play.com review

Every year there's one animated film that goes beyond just being a kids' film or cartoon comedy and becomes a classic in its own right. This is what Pixar is all about. In 2007, Ratatouille took the plaudits; 2008 saw Wall-E whirr and click its way to immortality; and 2009 belongs to Up.

Funny, thrilling and touching, Up is the story of widower Carl Fredricksen, a man who is looking for the adventure that he and his wife never had. A floating house, talking dogs and a giant bird of paradise all cross Carl's path in a typical Pixar production, bursting with creativity, funny lines and characters that kids and grown-ups will love.

Up is in safe hands with writer and director Pete Docter, responsible for Toy Story, Toy Story 2, Monsters Inc. and Wall-E. The voice acting of Edward Asner (Elf), Christopher Plummer (9 and The Imaginarium Of Dr Parnassus) and John Ratzenberger (Cars) also lends the film real class. Up is the animated adventure of 2009 - we look forward to Toy Story 3 taking a shot at 2010's crown.

If you enjoyed Disney Pixar's Up then check out some other classics from the awesome animation studio!

Toy Story: One of the best movies of all-time, Pixar's debut is a stunningly imaginative, incredibly funny take on the secret life of toys.

Toy Story 2: One of the best movies of all-time, Pixar's sequel is a stunningly imaginative, incredibly funny take on the secret life of toys.

Cars: Paul Newman and Owen Wilson lend their talents to this charming adventure about a regretful race car.

Wall-E: If cute robots, alien encounters and incredible animation are what you're after then watch this charming and thought-provoking film.

Monsters Inc.: The monster world receives a visit from a tiny toddler, setting off an hilarious chain of events.

 Best Pixar ever

| | See all GandalfTheGinger's reviews (11)

Before you read my mini review just click "buy it", seriously this is Pixars finest film in ages, I never thought anything would beat ratatouille for me but this has, the saddest first 10 minutes of any animation you have seen, then the most beautiful looking bluray animation and fantastic film to date, whether you have children or not just buy this film

 Outstanding!

This movie is yet another example of how far ahead of the field Pixar is in terms of making entertaining movies for all ages. If you haven't seen this yet, I strongly recommend getting hold of the Superset. It's not too much more than the standard versions, but it ensures that if you upgrade to Bluray in the future, you have the highest quality version available. The picture quality is great no matter what version you watch though, and the real winner is the story and the fantastic comedy. I think there's enough in there to keep the kids thoroughly entertained, despite what the Disney merchandise team think.

There are a small selection of bonus features on the standard DVD: three short films, a documentary on the Pixar team's visit to the real Paradise Falls (or rather the place it's based on) and some alternate scenes, though these aren't a patch on the plethora of extras on the Bluray disc.

All in all, an excellent watch and a must see for all ages.

 Best Blu Ray I own

| | See all dftba123's reviews (1)

This review comes in 2 parts: Movie review and then a review of the Bluray itself.

Movie: One of, if not my absolute, favourite movie of 2009. Touching and funny all at once - one minute you're crying your eyes out, the next you're rolling in the aisles at the jokes. This is a powerful movie!!

Blu Ray: THE BEST Blu Ray transfer I have ever seen. The colours are spectacular, the shadows are just right, the contrasts are perfect, I have literally never seen quality like this outside the cinema before even on other Blu Rays I have.

The sound quality is amazing, which is a must with a soundtrack as brilliant as that supplied by Michael Giachinno for this movie.

I posted a tweet the moment I finished the movie, and it read thus: HD was created for this movie. Up is amazing.

And I stand by that. If you have a blu ray player, you will regret not having Up in your collection, and this set is the set to go for.

AND whats more, you get the DVD and the Digi copy as well, all for a great price. This is gonna save my brother buying the DVD, and means I can watch on my laptop and iPod too.

Honestly: Superset is the right word. This is superb.

 Yet Another Reason to Love Pixar

| | See all BlueJamme's reviews (5)

With the 15th anniversary of their first outing in to the movie world (Toy Story) now approaching, it must be with some pride that Pixar continue to demonstrate themselves in a class of their own and hold true to their motto that 'Story is King'. Afterall, how many other movie studios could claim to have not made a single duff film during their lifetime?

Up, as the title may suggest, continues to prove that when it comes to building believable and engaging characters against a rich, heart-warming story - nobody does it better.

The first 10 minutes alone is enough to melt the hardest of hearts without boiling over in to cheap, tacky sentimentality as we see love blossom over a lifetime of magical but everyday shared moments through to that final and most heart-achingly tragic of losses.

From there our cantankerous hero is pushed in to fulfilling the promise he made to his dearly beloved, but sadly departed, wife (aided by his eager but youthful sidekick).

To give any more away would be to spoil the pure, unadulterated enjoyment of letting it flow over and through you. However, it is safe to say that the joy of the ride is every bit as magical as the vehicle in which it is carried out (a house suspended by balloons), and as always with Pixar, you are left wondering why it is that every film can't be as good as this.

I can't leave it without also adding that the 3D is used to great (but sparing) effect. Just study the depth of the early scenes with our sidekick walking home from the cinema over 'ravines' and 'mountains'. Incredible.

A flawlessly and charmingly executed delight from start to finish - go and see it, and expect to be entertained.

 UP there with Pixar's best.

Firstly I would just like to say this is one of the blu-ray conversions i own, superb picture and sound quality. Something that Pixar get right everytime though I suppose! The special features are really good, one even shows you a trip the team take to research the landscape found in the film, breathtaking stuff!

I found this to be one of Pixars greatest achievements to date. A very emotional film which may not be suited to an average child, it is a very adult movie in parts. Obviously there are lots of moments a child will laugh at and enjoy, but it is quite a mature approach from Pixar. One which has definitely paid off, proving that animated films can be taken seriously. Maybe Pixar are heading in a new direction,who knows? I have yet to see a Pixar film that I havent enjoyed really, but this is up there with my favourites. Buy this I highly recommend it, two thumbs UP!!
