While some would argue that Pixar's 10th animation film is not their best, I wholeheartedly disagree. Toy Story, A Bug's Life, Monsters and Wall-E are nothing compared to Up. Director and co-screenwriter Pete Docter and co-director and co-writer Bob Peterson took Up to new heights - creating a sweet love story in the beginning, an exciting adventure story in the middle and a warm, family story in the end. The best thing about Up, however, is that we found a hero in a 78-year old man...a man who loved his wife in such a pure and sweet way, it's like nothing we've ever seen. As film critic Kenneth Turan from the LA Times says, "Up's multi-minute montage of the long married life of Carl and his wife, Ellie, is a small gem that will stay with you for a lifetime." Here are 12 movie moments from my favorite animated Pixar film, Up. From Carl's first run in with Ellie to 8-year old Russell meeting Kevin the bird and Dug the dog, these are the magical movie moments we'll always remember.

  • "Kevin!" Such a great movie. The first 15 minutes I was literally in tears.
  • I agree that Up is probably the best of Pixar thus far, but Wall-E definitely comes very close. It goes to prove what strong studio Pixar is becoming in terms of both the writing and technical aspects of animation. Before Monsters Inc remember, hair, fur and feathers were still not being captured by animators, now we're seeing these things regularly in the cinema. Its a great to see the evolution and growth of animation and in particular Pixar as they build on whats come before.
