Some amazing reviews are coming in from the Up pre-release screening at Austin, Texas’ Alamo Drafthouse:
The guys over at Ain’t It Cool News (hosts of the event) have extremely positive reviews for Up. Harry had lots to say, here’s an excerpt: "Because you care about the characters I found myself near breathless through these action scenes… Pete Docter has made another incredibly wonderful Pixar film!" Read his extensive thoughts on Pixar’s 10th offering.
Nordling from AICN also had high praise for the film: "Pixar films have a way of plugging right into my heart, and UP is certainly no exception. I can’t wait to see it again." Partly Cloudy was also premiered there, and he had nothing but good stuff to say about Pixar’s latest short. Read his take here.
Twitter was also buzzing with excitement from the screening:
meganhagins: "Lovin’ UP. One of the most well-rounded films I’ve seen in a long time, let alone among best from Pixar. I loved the pacing-never rushed."
EricVespe: "Pixar’s UP was as great as I thought it would be."
brotherscho: "Pixar has outdone themselves, UP was a brilliant benchmark for emotive storytelling for animation."
heuge: It is another Pixar classic. I can’t wait to see it in 3D!
michaelgmccoy: "Pixar’s Up is one of the best movies ever!!!"

I hope everyone is even more excited (if that’s even possible) after reading the early praise for Pixar’s elderly action adventure! What are you expecting from this movie, do the reviews surprise you?
(Thanks JC from the Pixar Planet Forums for collecting the tweets!)

Despite the fact that I haven’t even seen the film yet, I’d go so far as to say that it will most likely be one of my favorite of Pixar’s features, judging by both the subject matter and all of these rave reviews that have poured in.
Heh. I should have known that the special screening was warped. Unless I’m much mistaken, midnight screenings for Pixar films at the El Capitan Theater used to be available to either the general audience or Disney/Pixar employees… (or something along those lines), but it seems as if D23 has taken the spotlight on that stage. Sounds like a bit of a conspiracy, in my opinion.
