UP UP UP and away...



UP is awesome.

I've been waiting for this movie for like ages because it is PIXAR and yes PIXAR always defeat other 3D animation studio when it comes to character play. They always focus on characters rather than just telling humours and making the whole thing very changgih 3D like or infact just story telling.

UP has done it again! Its a good thing too that not much promotion (I mean just look at the poster. Its just baloons and a house flying) actually was for this show because by doing so they will spoil the surprises. It is very very touching too. Seriously.

Its also sad that we got this show so late in the year because it was not transforming metal or some metal robot alien show. My friends from HK and Singapore have watched it and asked me to watch it. Which is weird they hardly ask me go watch show.

The characters are ugly though LOL like the movie poster, it didn't show much details and my comments here will not be detailed too.

I like how people over at pixar is very hospitable and to think that all americans don't care isn't true. It is because of these actions that keeps a company like to its childlike spirit and the best at what it does because they belive in dreaming! And it really burns down to their core! What am I talking about? Just read the story below.

On Dec. 23, 2005, young Colby Curtin was diagnosed with vascular cancer, after doctors found a tumor in her liver. On April 28th, 2009, at the age of ten, her parents took her to see Monsters vs Aliens (2009). She was most impressed with the preview to "Up", saying "I have to see that movie. It is so cool." Two days later, Colby's health began to worsen. On June 4th, her mother Lisa asked a hospice company to bring a wheelchair for Colby so she could visit a theater to see "Up." However, the weekend went by and the wheelchair was not delivered. Unfortunately, Colby was now too sick to leave home and her family feared she would die without seeing the film. A family friend named Terrell Orum-Moore, who desperately wanted Colby to get her last wish, began to cold-call Pixar and Disney to see if someone could help. Pixar has an automated telephone answering system, Orum-Moore said, and unless she had a name of a specific person she wanted to speak to, she could not get through. Orum-Moore guessed a name, and the computer system transferred her to someone who could help, she said. Pixar officials listened to Colby's story and agreed to send someone to Colby's house the next day with a DVD of "Up". Lisa Curtin asked her daughter, "Do you think you can hang on?". "I'm ready (to die), but I'm going to wait for the movie," the girl replied. The company flew an employee with the "Up" DVD, which was still only in theaters, to the Curtin's home on June 10 for a private viewing. He had a bag of stuffed animals of characters in the movie and a movie poster. He shared some quirky background details of the movie, and the group settled in to watch "Up". Colby couldn't see the screen because the pain kept her eyes closed, so her mother gave her a play-by-play of the film. At the end of the film, Lisa if her daughter enjoyed the movie, and Colby nodded yes. Lisa Curtin described the Pixar employee, saying "He couldn't have been nicer. His eyes were just welled up." Of the film, she remarked, "When I watched it, I had really no idea about the content of the theme of the movie. I just know that word 'Up' and all of the balloons and I swear to you, for me it meant that (Colby) was going to go up. Up to heaven." Seven hours after viewing the film, Colby passed away with her parents at her side. Pixar officials declined to comment on the story or name the employees involved.
