How many balloons does it take to float a house?

OK, this makes me really angry! :evil: I came across this article that says Up is a movie geared towards pre-schoolers! I know they ARE kid movies, but are miscarriages and death really things you would find in every other pre-school film?

A real-life ice-cream parlor that has a cameo in "Up" now has a line out the door. This from yesterday's Contra Costa Times:

An excerpt from the article:
"The film's director Pete Docter lives nearby and is a longtime Fenton's customer. Groups of Pixar employees regularly frequent Fenton's for lunch and special events. "

Yeah, that article is a tad bit old, but so incredibly touching. I really respect Pixar for going out of the way to do that for her. It's really inspiring. They really love what they do, and their fans. :)

afsuihiuhadgiuasdfgu. It also irks me that they call it a Disney movie, even though it really isn't. They also misspelled "WALL-E" as "Wal-E". Also, I don't get this sentence. "This brings attention to Disney and the fact that not all promoted are movies. "

Fail review. Probably written by a Pixar-hating 12 year old.


Darn you Bryko, I'm constantly trailing you! :P At least I go to the theater. :D

Why would a kid write about some Disney product helping toddlers learn to read?

And expect my view count to go way up once school is over this week. :P

Mine will skyrocket once it's out of theaters (if you catch my drift), as I won't have to rely on getting out of the house. Still, It's so great in theaters. And it'll probably slow down slightly once school starts and the DVD is out (features and all)

As for the reviewer, I didn't even go to the trouble to read the whole thing. Probably just trying to get some attention by freaking people out.

I didn't see a review; I saw someone trying to sell magazine subscriptions.

I think Up is going to be the movie that drags me into the 21st century and finally convinces me to buy a Blu-Ray player. 8)

That's a different point of view. I actually going to buy a BD player if a CGI effects in the movie convinces me buy it.

But yeah, I think I'll buy because of Up.
HARDCORE AWESOMENESS.

I'm the same way. I've never been interested in a Blu-ray player til now, I do NOT wanna miss out on the extra features. I want to see everything about this movie. Hopefully since this is a landmark for Pixar (film no. 10, 3d) they'll go all out on the features, like more than Wall•E. Plus, isn't going back over like all their movies in Blu-ray? I know they just did A Bug's Life. I'm hoping for a player for my B-day in August, in time for the release, as well as all the available movies.

I was watching the Filipino news on SBS Two (yes, I watch news shows in languages I don't understand) and at the end of every show they have a segment called "Patok!", where they have the lighter, feel-good news of the day and I flicked the channel over just in time to see them introduce the segment for Up, which focuses on Ricky Nierva working on the film. The segment I watched was in Tagalog, but you get the general gist of it anyway even if you don't speak the language (something-something-something DREAM JOB something-something PIXAR) but on the website they have an English version of the video. He talks about the other Filipinos working there (refering to Ronnie Del Carmen as well one of the security guards as well as others, I guess) and the group is nicknamed Pix-noy. Anyway, I know we have a few Filipinos here and I kinda geeked out when I saw it 'cause it was kinda unexpected but cool to see Up getting international coverage at the same time.

Here's the English version on the website: http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/video/pinoy- ... ind-pixars


EDIT: Dang, Martin bet me to it on Upcoming Pixar. :P
