Great Moments In Film – Up (2009)
I’ve already talked about the brilliance that is PIXAR, so we can skip all of that. Today we look at what I refer to as “PIXAR greatness.” What this simple statements infers to are the moments that exceed most things that we see in movies, animated or not. While I think WALL-E is still their high watermark, this montage from Up is a perfect example of what I’m talking about.
The following four plus minutes fits in a lifetime’s worth of story: all the triumph, tragedy, and how life often gets in the way of our dreams. It perfectly sums up this couple’s time together all without saying a single word. I will admit that I felt that Up wasn’t one of PIXAR’s greatest achievements (which isn’t to say that it’s bad), but no one can deny the genius of this scene which happens at the beginning of the film.
