Day 2 – My favorite movie

30 05 2010

My favorite movie is Up.  That movie shows true love, puts kids in a good light and all with family fun.  Honestly one day I want to see myself as Carl and Ellie, marrying somebody I was dear friends with and growing old together.  Maybe not quite flying my house out to South America…I also love how Carl learns to love Russell because people don’t treat kids like they should.  Everybody talks down to them and they don’t actually listen.  Anyway this is a very sweet movie, and I cried three times the first time I watched it.

Some of my favorite quotes

Russell: DO I DIG THE HOLE BEFORE OR AFTER??

Carl: Why don’t we play who can be quiet the longest? Russell: My mom LOVES that game!

Dug: Hi, my name is Dug and I love you

Ellie: YOU DONT TALK MUCH… but I LIKE YOU

Yeah, one of my favourite movies as well! It is very strong thematically, I like the motif of the house representing past memories and hurts. When he loses the house at the end, it’s a forgiveness of the past and a embracing of the present life with Russell and Dug…etc.

Red car…Mr Fredricksen, that’s a fire hydrant.

I’m too dense to read into imagery like that but I thought it was a beautiful movie. And notice how it didn’t have to be packed full of violence and sex??
