Trust me.

Trust me. I mean it. Trust me.

Go see UP!

I mean it. Now. Why are you still reading this?

I agree, nice poster. But you need to convince me. The trailer and commercials look pretty boring to me.

If you don't trust my judgment, you don't trust my judgment. It's Pixar's best film yet. I sat as the (magnificently appropriate) end credits started, and literally wept with joy for the magnificence of the achievement of this movie. It is that good.

It's not about trusting judgement. After all, you are the one who largely turned me onto Babylon 5. But our tastes differ in some other areas too. Nothing I've seen of this movie so far interests me. But if you said, "I like it cause of X" and X is something we agree on - then I'd see it. Because I do trust that our tastes overlap in some areas.

I like it because it is as perfect an exprssion of the storyteller's art as I have ever seen. It is physically beautiful, emotionally rich and satisfying and true in a hundred different ways that I can't and wouldn't specify.

Sometimes, some things are so wonderful, I just say, "Trust me." This is one.

My niece and I saw this today! It was just adorable!
It's so much more than cute, though. It's touching, sad, adventurous, fun, silly, just plain ol' wonderful!
I wasn't crying at the end (though I saw other people with tissues) but I had serious case of the warm-fuzzies. XD

What had me in tears at the end -- as opposed to the first ten minutes, when I blubbered -- was just the complete perfection of storytelling the movie represented: The combination of humour, warmth, sadness, complexity, all piled one onto another to bring us this wonderful, wonderful story, and beautiful examplar of how they should be told.

Yes, exactly! *hugs*
And the short movie at the beginning was pretty durn cute, too. XD

I am still reading this because it is 10:15 pm here and the last showing of Up here for today started an hour and ten minutes ago. You wouldn't want me to see it when it's half over would you?

If I go this week, will you write another chapter of UB?

I'll write a new chapter as soon as I can get it out, I promise. And I'll do it whether or not you go see "UP." But go see it. Trust me. Breaking into the theater and forcing them to show it to you from the beginning isn't entirely out of line.

You KNOW I trust you! I'm going Friday night. Breaking & entering is not an option. If I'm gonna get arrested for something, you can rest assured it is going to involve my favorite Brit.
