"Up" needs more praise

The movie Up needs more praise for how excellent it is. The start of the movie is a giant emotional roller coaster. Being able to see Carl Fredricksen grow up and go through his life with enough detail in short amount of time. In this short amount of time you are already emotionally attached to both his character and his wife Ellie. Once Ellie passed, the movie took a toll on me. The way Pixar could make me so emotionally invested in a character in little time made this movie great. The whole love story made me enjoy this movie until the end. When Carl and Russel start their relationship it is pretty rough, but in the end it works out for both of them. This movie had me feeling happy in the end. I enjoyed this movie and will watch it again soon.

Monster's University

Mike Wazowski is by far my favorite animated character. He is so adorable and I always enjoyed watching him in Monster's Inc. This movie just made him look even more adorable. All I want for him is success. Throughout this movie it shows his pathway to that success. Even though it is not exactly what he wanted, he did end up making a life long friend. I was worried about how this movie would go once it was announced. The first movie was perfect, I did not want them to ruin it with a prequel. Fortunately, Pixar came through with another great movie. Monster's University is always a joy to watch.

The Good Dinosaur

I rather enjoyed watching The Good Dinosaur. Yes, it's another Disney movie, but I enjoy them so I watch them often.The opening of the movie had me laughing for several minutes. I had to pause the movie to see what I had missed while laughing. The start of the movie has many parts that make you laugh out loud. After that it starts to get more serious. Arlo is unable to meet the requirements to make his mark. Once he messes up for the last time, his father decides it is time he finishes what he started. On this journey to find a creature who keeps stealing his crops, a terrible storm appears. Arlo is now lost and must find his way home. This movie has it's ups,but also has it's downs. I would definitely watch this movie again and again.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

So I recently watched the newest Star Wars. Now let's make something very clear. I am definitely not a Star Wars nerd. I have not seen the previous movies, so I went into this blindly. The movie overall looked magnificent. The space battles and scenery stood out the most compared to other movies. I was that annoying person watching the movie asking all the questions about what is going on. The closest thing to watching Star Wars that I have seen, is watching the cartoon version with my little brother. So the plot did not exactly make since to me. There was plenty of action though, I could tell you that much. Star Wars: The Force Awakens was good on the eyes, but I could not make sense of it all.
