Up is Disney-Pixar’s latest hit

Normally I would have to be dragged kicking and screaming before I spend good money on watching an animation on the big screen. It’s not that I have anything against the genre. I just don’t feel that the big screen adds anything to the picture. But I’ve been wrong before. Which brings me to Disney-Pizar’s Up, the story of an old codger’s journey to the wilds of South America in a house propelled by thousands of balloons. The widower (voiced by Ed Asner) is unwittingly accompanied by an over enthusiastic and pudgy eight-year-old Boy Scout. The pictures genuine warmth and respect between the two generations alone make it a must-see. Highlights such as talking dogs with voice translators; the goofy rare bird Kevin; and the zeppelin-like air ship sequence should have you flocking to see the 3-D version.
