    Just come back from seeing it , an incredible movie the boys loved it.

    Laugh out loud funny at times

    ... and cried my heart out at others , not ashamed to admit it.


    An awesome piece of cinema. Pixar are in a league of their own and the 3D has got to be the way of the future it adds so much.

    Obvious small cameo for John Ratzenburger as well :lol:

    Also saw that one of the 'in memorandum' dedications at the end was Alice Davies - I didn't know she had died :sigh: she was a lovely lady that Lisa and I were privileged enough to spend the day with he and her late husband.

    Uh oh. Those are two films that totally do me in. Not so sure I can do Up then? I know that they aren't the same subject line, but I am a total crybaby anymore. :sigh:

    IF it moves you then it means that you have been in love, which is clearly a good thing.

    :hug2: No, no fretting, but emotional seems to be catching, eh? Much of it in the atmosphere. :hug2: I've heard from others that it's a great movie and one to see. Perhaps I will get the chance. :yes:

    It is such a wonderful movie! There is a sad cry at the beginning but it's a happy cry at the end. It's very sweet

    I cried too. About three times in all. I cried at the obvious point at the start, the bit where Russell's family situation became apparent, and the end. Louise cried 90% of the way through. We both laughed out loud too, especially at the line "Kevin's a girl?"

    I cannot imagine how Pixar come up with these truly unique, awesome ideas. The amount of rubbish that must go through their filter system to produce these diamonds is incredible.

    There was a south bank show special on them on ITV sunday night. Pretty sure it was just extracts from the Pixar Story, but made me insanely jealous of Lassater. Not just because his pay packet these days must be disgustingly huge, but because of how much he genuinely loves his job, and animation as a whole. I cannot wait for the princess and the frog, and hold high hopes that with JL in charge, DISNEY (not pixar) will restore themselves to animation greatness through traditional 2D storytelling.

    THE most important reason that PIXAR rules all is they concentrate on the story above all else and do not rely on the visuals wheich are also stunning, but th esory comes 1st

    Oh and well worthy of a mention is the short than preceeds the film - another triumph that will have you howling with laughter and going aw.. as well

    It wasn't just twice for me either mark - I think it was 4 times during the film and for about 1/2 an hour after I came out :lol:
