Sneak Peek at "Up"

The folks over at got a sneak peek at the first 45 minutes of Disney/Pixar’s latest, Up, and by all accounts they left with smiles on their faces. It was a fun read, and seems to point to it being a more interesting kids’ movie than I’d previously thought from the previews I’d seen. Take a quick look over at FirstShowing.

While you're there, you can be one of the first to see a trailer for the new Quentin Tarantino film, Inglourious Basterds. (Could this be the first blog post to be both about Tarantino and a Pixar film? Nah.) Ladies, if you have a thing for Brad Pitt, you may not want to see this movie (nor do you want to see it if you have a weak stomach). I must admit I'm a Tarantino fan, even his violent tendencies usually come across as pretty brilliant cinema to me... and one of my favorite films ever is Reservoir Dogs. Jackie Brown might also make a Top Something-Or-Other list if I took another look at it just before composing such a list; what a criminally underrated piece of work it is.

Ok, so FirstShowing is a pretty cool and well-informed site, even if all the editors look like they're about 12 and not one of them lists Woody Allen or Werner Herzog as favorite directors.


  1. Saw the "Up" trailer again last night. Ho hum, in my opinion.

    But the feature I saw was "Coraline." You must must see this. And maybe you can enlighten everyone as to how appropriate it is for the kiddies. It is so beautiful, it might even be worth a nightmare.

  2. Hey FF! Yeah, i wasn't so impressed with the "Up" trailer, that's why I thought the report from FirstShowing was interesting... Hope to see "Coraline" this weekend. Ya think parents are steering clear of it? Hmmm.
