Up

Carl had a good life, but everything he loved is gone or disappearing. Fed up, he decides to fulfill both a promise and a lifelong goal with an adventure to South America ... flying in his house ... carried by helium balloons. Things get complicated by a boy, a bird, and a dog. The boy is 8 years old, the bird is 10 feet tall, and the dog talks; Carl gets more adventure than he bargained for. Up is a wonderful, smart exploration of what's important versus what we think is important, that doesn't resort to tired emotional gimmicks. I greatly enjoyed it.

Underdog

UnderdogUnderdog is a cartoon that has a special place in my childhood memories. I was big fan when I was kid, and still remember the theme music and many of the catch phrases ("There's no need to fear, Underdog is here!"). When I first heard they were making an Underdog movie I was cautiously optimistic. Sadly, the optimism is gone. Read why in my latest Mad About Movies posting: There’s every reason to fear, Disney’s Underdog is here.
