"A Branch of Heaven On Earth"

I saw Pixar's "Up" last week; full review is to come, but I'll start by saying it's easily the best movie of the year so far, and it's right near the top of the all-time Pixar rankings, just below "Toy Story 2" and "The Incredibles." From an excellent Daily Beast piece about the movie and Pixar's unbelievable run:

Know your film history. It took the filmmakers several years to figure out where to send Carl and his balloons—don’t you just love that? Several years. It takes the writers of Bond and Bourne all of five minutes to jot down a wishlist of their latest destinations; the result are films that feel about as rooted as misplaced luggage.
Someday, somehow, Pixar will make a bad movie. But it probably won't be for awhile.
