Well, he woke up screaming, that's for sure.

And I'm sure the supervisor alien flipped the "heal all wounds" switch at some point during that impressive display of UFO controlling.

So did anyone else see the similarity between the aliens in "Lifted" and Pixar's original designs for the humans in WALL-E?

Le_chocolat:Yeah, sorta like blobby things.

Lifted was a really funny short. Sometimes I feel like that alien (Stu, right?) during a sudden pop quiz; like I want to start yelling because it's so difficult to tell which is which. :lol:

I'm sure many have noticed it before already, but to me, the farmer kinda looks like Linguini. Must be the hair.

I laughed a few times when I first watched it. I kinda felt sorry for Stu, but it was sure funny to watch him messed up. Sorry, Stu. :P

Oh, and of course, I was equally surprised when the ship dropped on the house. Heh, silly farmer.

That he did, I read on a page that it was the same model, but I can't remember where I heard it.

I'm really amazed on Gary Rydstrom's directing debut here. I can't wait for his featured directed film Newt. Definitely my best short film from Pixar.
I fell in love with Pixar since Toy Story and now I'm 19 and still loving Pixar films particularly WALL-E and I'm crazy as hell about it.

I think this short was amazing!

I like how they had it set up like it was a driving exam or something of that taste. Brilliant.

My favorite part was probably the end, when the little dood crashed the UFO into the ground and then it takes off, and the only peice of land left standing is the little platform with the buy laying in his bed, lol

Good stuff! :)

not my favorite short, but pretty funny. Yeah the aliens do look like the concepts for humans in WALL-E. And I can see the Linguini resemblance too. I totally saw the ship coming down on the house before it happened, but I didn't anticipate the bed just sitting there. You feel sorry for the little one when there are millions of these buttons and he just guesses wrong.

My guess is the man was sedated or something before they were going to extract him.

Lifted is one of my favorite Pixar Shorts :P it was/is hilarious. Plot setup and lack of talking was pretty well crafted too. :o

I think it was awesome, and the Wilhelm scream at the end made it complete! :D I only noticed it the second time though :P

Can I just ask something? I live in the UK and LIFTED isn't available in the iTunes Store as a short film :( It is in the US Store but not the UK one :(

Anyone know why?

Partly Cloudy will soon be added to the collection!

I loved it--and, the human apparently IS Linguini--well, from what I guessed. The plot sounds amazing too...
