  • Nice to see some love for “Up”. What a terific movie that was.

  • Brandon Cooley

    Up is a little bit overated. It was a good movie, but it shouldn’t win best picture. Compared to the other ten pixar movies, it’s average. Not as good as the Toy Storys or Wall-E.

  • Pixar rankings (from best to worst): “Finding Nemo”, “The Incredibles”, “WALL-E”, “Up”, “Ratatouille”, “Monsters’ Inc”, “Toy Story”, “Toy Story 2”, “Cars”, and “A Bug’s Life”.

    Note: all are good movies. And “Up” is my favorite film of the year (though I haven’t yet seen “The Hurt Locker”, “A Serious Man”, “Avatar”, “Up in the Air”, and many others). Long live “Pixar”.

  • Jess

    Why are the critics giving awards already when Alvin and the Chipmunks the Squeakquel has not been shown yet? It opens Dec. 25, and that should change the game and will completely throw off Avatar, Hurt Locker, Up in the Air, etc. It will also piss on Fantastic Mr. Fox and Up for the animation category.

  • Haha, you are totally right, Jess.

  • Funny.
