    Re: 'Up' rises past 'Ratatouille'

    I can't grasp what I am hearing! To each his own but I love Ratatouille and UP, and think that at the core both are wonderful stories. God forbid kids would have a movie option that was sensitive and true to what real life can be like. UP is a wonderful love story and I like, that mixed in with all of the true to life emotion there is also some humor (ie talking dogs). Dug is sweet and teaches kids that umong piers its okay to be kind and if that makes you, "diffrent", oh well. Same thing with Remy from Ratatouille, he goes against the grain and comes out on top.
    Not to mention the superior animation!

    Since sales have been so good, I only wish that would mean more UP merchandise!!!

Everything in CWACOM fit together, in Up, I was scratching my head why they put the (kind of dumb) talking dogs in it. It seemed for no reason than they wanted to put something different in it. Muntz is an explorer, and I don't think of explorers being able to invent a talking machine. Pixar movies are good, but somehow are lacking, and I can't exactly put my finger on it. I also watched Wizard of Oz recently, and none of the Pixar movies, except maybe Finding Nemo comes even close to that.
    In general I agree with all that you are saying. I think Meatballs was one of the most entertaining and well constructed films this year and did not get the attention that it deserved. However the technical quality of Pixar's computer animation is still unsurpassed. Also while I agree that Up's storyline does feel somewhat patched together the movie has sufficient emotional pull to make me see it twice in theaters...something I do with very few movies these days, and something I would not consider for Meatballs. As far as the talking dogs go...I immediately thought of that element plus airship plus little doggie airplanes as being homages to similar elements found in Hayao Miyazaki's films.

    I really enjoyed Up...More than Ratatouille, actually. It will be interesting to see how Toy Story 3 will compare in the numbers

    Up is a weird movie for me. It's a rare movie that I really liked at first but didn't like as much after seeing it again.
