grandma's movie review - UP!

This is one of my favorite movies - not only is it a well made movie with excellent animation, color, music, but the story-line is one with strong messages for children - and adults as well!
Up (Four-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo + BD Live) [Blu-ray]
Rating - PG - some peril
and action
  • Favorite Features -
    • includes two shorts - Dug's Special Mission and Partly Cloudy - both are absolutely worth watching on their own! Tremendously well done!
    • extra features with games, shorts and more
    • available with Blu-ray, DVD and Disneyfile Digital copy
    • important messages about love, forgiveness, keeping your word, helping others and living life as an adventure
Disney-PIXAR has absolutely outdone themselves with this movie! The dogs "talking" collars are beyond funny and show these writers are total "dog-people"! The beginning is sad - made me cry - but the storyline is tremendously creative and engaging and flat out fun! This is the best Disney-PIXAR movie ever! 

When you watch this movie with your grandchildren be sure to talk with them about how love allows you to change you plans and see your new plans as an adventure - like Ellie did. Ask your grandchildren which characters made poor choices and how those choices ended up affecting them and others. Ask your grandchildren about which characters made wise choices. Talk about how those choices affected the lives of others in the movie as well as the character's life. Brainstorm with  your grandchildren about what you can do to help someone else and live life as an adventure!
