Carl's house starts flying at the moment when he releases the balloons from the chimney; assuming that all balloons were already inflated and stored inside the house, this should have made the house float hours before already, regardless of whether they are inside or outside the house. However, it appears the balloons were in a giant sack in the backyard, and could have either been tethered down securely, or compressed to reduce lift. See more »

I was luckily able to catch a screening a few weeks ago here in Houston.
As an avid lover of Wall-E, I felt Pixar could never reach those heights again.
I was wrong.
UP's story will probably seem peculiar at first glance. An old man as a protagonist? It definitely blew my expectations. The first 5 minutes demolished every other Pixar feature just because it was the first time I cried in a theater.
This just shows how much heart there is to the movie. I really don't want to get into specifics because of spoilers but the movie literally has everything.
Amazing visual effects.
Breath taking action.
All those combined equal something special. Today's movies like to blow you away with gimmicks, Pixar is different. Each movie shows soul and UP definitely has it.
I can't wait until it comes out so I can see it in 3d, im bringing everybody.
