Oscars Challenge 2010: Up

up_pixar-4UP

Up For:
Best Motion Picture of the Year
Best Writing, Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen
Best Achievement in Music Written for Motion Pictures, Original Score
Best Achievement in Sound Editing
Best Animated Feature Film of the Year

First things first, Up deserves every award it wins this year. Up was by far the best Disney-Pixar film I have seen to date. Combine everything that is great in life (grumpy old men, chubby asian kids, and talking dogs) and you will have the film Up.

Not sure how many animated films can say they were up for Best Motion Picture & Best Animated Feature in the same night. Add on all the technical aspects, and it makes Up even more extraordinary.

Up is an all together great film. If Up were to win the Best Original Screenplay, that would be fine by me. There is nothing that the Up screenplay does not have. Humor, Sadness, Adventure, Evil, Caring. Every range of emotion you could possibly imagine is buried into this film.

The score was great. Hands down, great. I saw this film in theaters and loved the music. I watched it at home several times on Blu Ray, still loved it. And getting to listen to the score while at the video store when you cannot always watch the screen makes for a totally unique experience with this film. Listen to this score and tell me that you don’t end up humming one of the tunes by the end of the day.

Not sure what kind of nods Up will get at the Oscars, but any would be absolutely fine by me. Up made my Top 5 favorite movies of all time list. The second film to do that this year. Have yet to hear from one person that did not enjoy this film.
