Pixar's "Up"

Description from Netflix: After a lifetime of dreaming of traveling the world, 78-year-old homebody Carl (voiced by Ed Asner) is lured into an unbelievable adventure, thanks in part to the persistence of Russell, an 8-year-old Wilderness Explorer (Jordan Nagai). Together, the unlikely pair embarks on a thrilling odyssey full of jungle beasts and rough terrain. Other voices include the renowned Christopher Plummer as the villain and Pixar stalwart John Ratzenberger.

Brilliant! The opening sequence alone of Carl's back story alone is better than most animated movies.

The dogs are great, but Doug (the one in the commercial) is awesome. Squirrel!

The opening short was perfect. It reminded me of the old Looney toons that didn't have the main characters in it.

I saw it in 3-D which was great because it wasn't things popping out at you. Instead, it gave the movie a feeling of depth. The glasses look like Carl's.

Go see it now!
