v and i went to see "UP" last night. it was incredibly sad, something i wasn't expecting in an animated film. years ago, i went to see John Lasseter speak at the Smithsonian right after Toy Story came out. he said that at the core of every movie should be a truly great story, because if you don't have a great story, it won't matter how good the animation is. both the story and the animation were amazing. we saw the digital 3D version and after a while, i forgot it was in 3D, it just felt like i was there, watching things unfold.
when we left the theater, it was pouring down rain. by the time we reached the car, we were soaked for the drive home. the movie left me in a very emotionally raw state, so once home, we opened the window, listened to the rain and watching the lightning. it was a very nice way to end the evening.
ps - saw the trailer for Toy Story 3, due out in June of 2010. long wait!
pps - squirrel!
