Up - house

“Up”

I saw the newest Pixar film today, and as the credits rolled I turned to my friend Lily and said, “That was beautiful.” It was also heartbreaking, thrilling, screamingly funny, and had a gorgeous soundtrack (by Michael Giacchino, who is rapidly gaining on Danny Elfman as my favorite living film composer). You should see Up. Everyone should.

ETA: Oh, and one of the trailers? Toy Story 3: June 2010. Haters who called Pixar uncommercial can suck it.
