12.28.09DVD Now I'd heard this was sad in the beginning but god damn, man! It's not fair that this movie with such amazingly cute and uplifting characters like Russell and the bird and especially Dug the dog has to be in a movie completely veined with 100% sad juice. UGH! Anyway, aside from being sad right off the bat, I really love how unashamedly fantastic this movie is. Flying houses, impossible waterfalls, talking dogs, zeppelin combat... Maybe because Pixar films are always so technically proficient, there was always a moment of "wait, this isn't right" when the film would introduce another not-realistic-at-all element but then I'd quickly realize that not only is it right but it's a kind of "right" that can only be done with this medium. It's what I would value most in a film for children.

If it only wasn't so damned sad! That's great, Pixar. Just great. You are now too good at storytelling. Stop making your films so potent!
