    Well, for once, i'm having my doubts with a Pixar movie. It does look good, but it doesn't seem very Pixar. I'm still going to see it as soon as it comes out, hopefully to be proved wrong about my prejudice on the movie. I don't think it's gonna beat WALL-E though...

    It looks to be a comedy, and the trailer was pretty funny. That Asian boyscout is a rather funny character :D

    Opinions?

    Elaborate on "not very Pixar". I don't quite understand what you're saying. The movie looks ok, not too funny but worth a rental all the same.

    I think that it will be better than Wall-E (this was my least favorite). I am very positive about this one. I do know what you mean when you say that it doesn't seem very Pixar. They started with Toys and then went to Monsters, it's interesting that they are going to people as the primary characters.

    Call me the minority but I think it looks like it could be the best Pixar movie yet. The visuals look absolutely amazing (not Wall-E amazing, but amazing nonetheless)

    I guess because of the use of human characters.

    If it got top billing in 3D at Cannes, it's likely to be half decent... Expect a trailer come WWDC!

    have a read of this - seems reviews are as always, pretty darn positive

    On 100% at Rotten Tomatoes at the moment http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/up/

    "This is a wonderful film. It tells a story"

    Every time Pixar comes out with a movie I think, "This is one where they finally miss the mark."

    And I'm always wrong.

    Totally excited about this, saw a trailer last night during Star Trek. I kinda get what you mean though, but I still think it will be awesome.


    But what am I dying for? Toy Story 3 next year. THAT'S going to be awesome.

    I saw a rough cut of the first 45 minutes or so late last year.

    Pixar may eventually misstep, but they'll need some other movie to do it. I don't want to oversell it, but it impressed me even for a Pixar film.

    If nothing else, it'll be the Pixar movie with the shortest title ever.

    I never cared too much for Cars. I guess it was geared more towards a younger audience/I don't really like cars in real life either, so I'm biased. ;)

    Cars was my least favorite too, but I still think it stands above what comes from the other studios. To me, Pixar films have a certainly quality and warmth that places like Dreamworks simply haven't figured out yet.

    I have loved every Pixar movie thus far except for "The Incredibles". That's the only one i haven't cared for. All the rest of them I thought were brilliant.

    Really? Incredibles was one of my favorites along with Toy Story. I never get sick of either one of those movies. :D

    Really? I totally enjoyed the Incredibles. Not sure what there was not to like.

    I loved The Incredibles. I hope they make another.

    I had a couple of conceptual problems with The Incredibles, most notably that if the Supers have to go into hiding, who is going to deal with the Super Bad-guys? It just doesn't make sense, but is required for the storyline.

    If my boys put it on, I'll sit and watch anyway.

    That being said, I'm looking forward to "Up", and would most likely go see a sequel to "The Incredibles".

    Completely agree. Incredibles is my least favorite Pixar title also. For some reason (maybe the super hero thing being overdone), it just doesn't appeal to me.

    I thought Wall-E was amazing, particularly the visuals. Up seems to be aimed at a much younger audience than most of the other Pixar titles.

    It won't be a movie I see in theaters (like Wall-E and Finding Nemo), but I'll rent it at some point.

    That's what they've said about every Pixar movie. And look at what's happened each time.

    Exactly.

    I liked The Incredibles. It was quite unique for a superhero cartoon movie.
    I also loved Cars :D

    A Bug's Life is my least favourite Pixar movie.

    Cars was my least favorite just because if I want to watch "Doc Hollywood", I can go watch that. Still worth watching, though.

    That good? :eek:

    I thought Michael J Fox's character was a bit less annoying, actually. :eek:

    :eek: I don't believe yo just said that. There's no accounting for taste, but Wall•E I think was right up there with Finding Nemo as their two best ones. They outdid themselves with both of those films.

    I agree w Abstract about Cars.

    I agree with DMR727 about doubting.
