Up Picks up Animation Oscar

Up won the Best Animated Feature Oscar at the 82nd Academy Awards tonight.

By the way, we watched Up in June last year and didn’t think much of it.

Here’s what SearchIndia.com wrote in the review of Up (3D):

But more than the story itself what left us most disappointed was the 3D aspect of the movie.

When you wear those 3D glasses, you tend to expect a lot.

You know, some nice, clever little tricks that make you go Wow.

Alas, there is no Wow element in this movie.

Once we donned our 3D glasses our expectations rose into the stratosphere but as the widower Fredricksonโ€™s house pulled by the balloons climbed high into the clouds and then drifted south, our pleasure in the movie too drifted south.

We donโ€™t know about you but for $8.50 (matinee ticket prices for a 3D movie), we expect a lot more.

Now for the other animation films that were in the running:

Coraline (2009): Henry Selick

Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009): Wes Anderson

The Princess and the Frog (2009): John Musker, Ron Clements

The Secret of Kells (2009): Tomm Moore

Up (2009): Pete Docter

    Not Up. Up won the Best Animated Feature Film of the Year award.

    Hurt Locker won the award.
