It got pretty creepy fast and a little too physically impossible.

    Russell is pretty awesome though.
    A day after I've seen Up and have had time for it to sink in, I can definitely see where you're coming from with that. I'll probably need to change my rankings accordingly.

    I can't really put my finger on it but I can stomach a mouse being a great chef but when I saw those dogs flying biplanes, that was bordering on shark jumping territory. I'm okay with Kurtz, I mean Muntz 's descent into darkness. However, the film seemed to rely too much on Indiana Jones-ish element towards the end.

    I may need to see it again, however as my first viewing was tainted by extremely annoying "think they know it all" kids sitting directly behind me.

    Did you see it in Brea on Saturday night too? Frickin' a, I had the most annoying chatterbox kids behind me.

    And before anyone jumps on me for being too harsh on Up, I just wanna say again that I absolutely LOVE the emotional aspect of it. The heart it has is right on the money. But if we're looking at the entire story, then there's a few things that do bother me about it.

    And yes, Dogs flying planes really put me on the fence. A) that's pretty awesome, B) oh come on, now!!!!

    I actually saw it late Sunday afternoon as I was on my way home from the Gumball Rally on Sat. night. I guess pre teens would be a more accurate description and they were the sort that would try to outwit one another with their insights.

    Maybe I got so fed up with them that it caused me to not enjoy the film so much. I do wish that they hadn't gone to the well soooo many times with some of the gags like "squirrel!" and the tennis balls. It's almost venturing into Dreamworks territory if you ask me. While comedy is a strong suit among Pixar films, usually they do it in a lot of creative ways and not mine the same shafts over and over again.

    Nonetheless, I'd still rate Up as an 8.75/10 or thereabouts.

    Were there burps, farts, and kicks to the crotch? THAT's venturing into Dreamworks territory.

    Re: Rank Pixar Films, including Up...

    I tried, but I just couldn't do it. They are all good, and on different days I have different favorites.

    About as far as I can go is to say that Bug's Life and and Finding Nemo wouldn't be at the top, but I still like both of them quite a lot!

    And how I picked you up and everything changed

    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Wow, too tough. I made it as far as my top three, and even those I'm not too sure about other than Ratatouille takes the contest for sure, hands-down, anyday.

    1. Ratatouille
    2. The Incredibles
    3. Finding Nemo

    Re: Rank Pixar Films, including Up...

    Now that I've seen Up! I think I'll rank them like this:

    1. WALL-E
    2. Tied: Ratatouille and Up! (Up! does have a slight edge over Ratatouille)
    3. Cars
    4. Finding Nemo
    5. Monsters Inc.
    6. Tied: Toy Story and Toy Story 2
    7. A Bug's Life
    8. The Incredibles
    9. Buzz Lightyear of Star Command (ok it's 2D animated, but it's still Pixar)

    I do like them all though.

    Re: Rank Pixar Films, including Up...

    1. Finding Nemo
    2. Monsters Inc.
    3. UP
    4. Incredibles
    5. Wall-E
    6. Toy Story
    7. Ratatouille
    8. Toy Story 2
    9. A Bug's Life
    10. Cars

    For me, it's all about the emotional connection/involvement I have with the story and characters, combined with the cleverness and wit of the script and story. 7-10 all leave me feeling a little cold and without some kind of strong emotional response other than a typical feeling of "entertained." However, the top 6 just really get my emotions going, whether one scene of intense emotion that the whole movie builds to (like Buzz and Woody flying/"falling with style" at the climax of Toy Story) or the feelings of loss replaced with friendship and happiness that run throughout "Up."

    And for the record, the song about Jesse in Toy Story 2 does NOTHING for me, emotionally.

    2. Toy Story 1
    3. Toy Story 2
    4. Up
    5. Wall-E
    6. Ratatouille
    7. Cars
    8. Monster's Inc.
    9. A Bug's Life

    Re: Rank Pixar Films, including Up...

    This is a hard one. I have always tried to rank them, but it is impossible. I must admit that The Incredibles, WALL-E, Monsters Inc., Finding Nemo, Up, and Toy Story all tie for first, but I wanted to give a go at ranking them. I love all of them, except Cars.

    1) The Incredibles
    2) WALL-E
    3) Monsters Inc.
    4) Finding Nemo
    5) Up
    6) Toy Story
    7) Toy Story 2
    8) Ratatouille
    9) A Bugs Life
    10) Cars
