Up: Look, Up in the Sky, It's A Bird, It's A Plane, It's... Old Man Carl Fredricksen in His Flying House!
|Kids can be so annoying!|
"Up" begins with a stunning montage of a marriage, from first love to tragic goodbye. There is more emotion packed into that opening sequence than in most live-action films. What follows shows a motley crew of adventurers who let nothing stand in their way.
|Carl never gets too excited.|
There are all sorts of sight gags of menacing beasts turning out to be something different and an awkward bird that becomes sympathetic. Great character development, especially for kids.
|Long shot of house taking off.|
|Carl in the jungle.|
|On the porch of the flying house.|
|Kind of makes you think of "King Kong."|
|Andy from the "Toy Story" Pixar films knows Carl and Ellie from "Up." We know this because he has a postcard from them. He may be related to them. This is one of many hidden nods to other films in "Up."|
