UP (3D) 15/08 @ Tampines

From Disney-Pixar comes UP, a comedy adventure about 78-year-old balloon salesman Carl Fredricksen, who finally fulfills his lifelong dream of a great adventure when he ties thousands of balloons to his house and flies away to the wilds of South America. But he discovers all too late that his biggest nightmare has stowed away on the trip: an overly optimistic 9-year-old Wilderness Explorer named Russell. From the Academy Award-nominated director Pete Docter (Monsters, Inc.), Disney-Pixar's UP invites you on a hilarious journey into a lost world, with the least likely duo on Earth. UP will be presented in Disney Digital 3-D in select theaters. [Source]
I wanted to catch this movie in 3D, because I've never experienced watching a movie in 3D before. But...I have to say that there wasn't much 3D effects. Even the trailer for "Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs" had more 3D effects than UP!

But the storyline was really moving. Pixar has done it again! I was already crying within the first half hour of the show, where they showed Carl's life in wordless summary. That part was beautiful and touching. The whole show was really funny too. Like, talking dog anyone?
The graphics were also, as usual, amazing.

Perhaps watching it in 3D marred the experience for me, as I felt the 3D glasses were really uncomfortable.

Some funny parts from the movie: [Source]

Carl Fredricksen: [Carl, with his house high in the air, opens his door to see who knocked on it. Looking around, he spots Russell and yells... ] Whaa!
Russell: Hi, Mr. Fredricksen! It's me, Russell!
Carl Fredricksen: What are you doing out here, kid?
Russell: I found a snipe, and I followed it under your porch, but this snipe had a long tail, and looked more like a large mouse.
[His flag then blows away in the wind, and he gasps]
Russell: [Turns to Mr. Fredricksen] Please let me in.
Carl Fredricksen: [pause] No.
[He slams the door shut]
Carl Fredricksen: [Russell waits uncertainly for a few seconds. The door opens again] Oh, all right...
[Russell runs inside]

The fat little boy is sooo cute!!

I freaking love this part! Super hilarous!

Charles Muntz: [on board his Spirit of Adventure airship] Does anyone know WHERE THEY ARE?
[Russell suddenly is dragged across the large window by a garden hose. Muntz stares while his eye twitches]

Silly little dog....ahaha.

Dug: [to the bird Kevin] Won't you please be my prisoner, please please please!

Highly recommended movie!

Wanna catch Final Destination and The Proposal next!
