Movie: Up (3D)
Let’s start with the 3D. I don’t think it added much to the experience of the film: the sense of depth is already present in this Pixar work, and ultimately the glasses were a distraction. It did mean, though, that when I looked across to see if Kel was enjoying the film, that I couldn’t see her eyes, but could just see the screen reflected in her 3D glasses.
Ignoring the 3D, though, this is a brilliant film. The opening ten minutes or so that tell the life story of the elderly protagonist are really brilliant, and the rest of the film is quite good – it’s a lot of fun, hard to tell where it will head next, and you leave the cinema realising that life is short, but determined to make the most of it.
Can I ask other people who have seen it, though, (in as spoiler-free way as I can) if they thought that the redistribution of assets that take place at the end of the film left, perhaps, some moral questions?
