Thumbs up (for Up)

Today I've watched UP the Disney Pixar's animated movie and man I can say it's pure poetry. At least in the beginning. I'm not so sure at the end.

When the story begins and until the house takes off you're hooked on the screen. There is hardly any speech and the action is told with images most of the time. It's so lovely, so emotional, so beautiful!!! But then when they reach South America they come across so many unbelievable things that attention falls down.

Flying away with a house tied to a million balloons is a nice make-believe, especially in the way that it is narrated but later on seeing the main character, an old man with mobility problems, fighting and jumping just like Indiana Jones is not justified in any sense.

But anyway I've liked it. It is worth watching.
