I wish that I had time to fully analyze the profound and hilarious insights of the new movie Up. And I wish that I could discuss all of the reasons that Pixar is the best movie production team in America, encapsulating all that is right in telling a good story.
But in the meantime, WORLD Magazine and Christianity Today both offer great reviews of the film, which has been almost universally praised by Christian and secular critics alike. And rightly so.
That Pixar can consistently create such believable, admirable, and likable characters is quite the accomplishment, especially amidst the inevitable pressure to bow to cheap humor and marketing gimmicks. I'm sure the movies aren't perfect -- but they're not too far off.
