With all the hype surrounding the latest Disney-Pixar release Up I decided to check it out with a group of friends, even at our age. What can I say? At least I know I’ll always be a Disney kid, knowing every one of the musical numbers by heart, with them always a few words away from a group chorus. But I guess that’s just me. Sadly, while I loved the movie’s sentimental value a couple of my friends found the movie utterly boring. One even dared to sleep through it. I can’t help but ask, have we as a generation moved on from the heartfelt to embrace a more action centric, albeit mainstream, media? I can’t seem to see how that’s even possible when it was that same heartfelt nature that reared us. Most of us have seen Disney movies, right? So how can we say that it wasn’t their best work? I saw it as a throwback to the “old” days, to the likes of Toy Story where funny can combine with the sickly sweet to produce something great. Apparently, people are beginning to get sick of the sugar rush. How do you guys feel? Have you given up things that pull on the heartstrings too, or rather have you just cut your heartstrings?
