UP has the unique combination of Tepui's and Art Deco Airships. Pixar only left out a World's Fair to make it perfectly aligned with my interests. UP is as gorgeous and inventive as is expected from a quality Pixar film. Surprisingly for a children's movie, it is also incredibly devastating. The film is structured to make the audience feel the same heartache as Carl when his wife Ellie dies. And it never really stops, UP is constantly pulling at your heartstrings. It is by far the saddest animated film I've ever seen.
