The first time I saw the trailer of UP at the movie theater, I didn’t find it very interesting. I just thought it was another animated movie meant to entertain children. But when I heard about the 10-year-old child, Colby Curtin, with vascular cancer who requested to watch the movie UP before she dies, this movie really made me curious.
So I did watch it. And guess what?! The movie was really touching beyond words. I cried and laughed while the movie was going on.
Aside from the fact that Walt Disney and Pixar did another great job in making the film, the movie was indeed very inspirational, full of values both for children and adults. To make it short and simple, all I can say the movie was great and I recommend it for the whole family to see! By the way, Up is also a great movie for couples because of the love story part.
Again, to say the least, I really loved it and although I am not about to go the adventure like his, I would like to imagine myself floating like that in a house pulled around by colorful balloons. hahaha Okay, I know I am such a dreamer!
Here is the Up Trailer:
Anyway, in a show at the National Geographic Channel, they recreated the flying house scene in California and here is the video clip below.
Still it does not stop me from dreaming that one day, I will be able to do this. LOL
