# Wonderful.
I watched Up for the first time the other day. I thought it was ace. My favourite Pixar yet. Are Pixar films becoming to emotive?

# My wife and I
watched Up one night after this choice...wife: "Girl, Interrupted, or UP", ME: "Lets watch Up, Girl, Interrupted is a bit heavy"..cue 10 minutes into Up with hysterical crying wife, "Why are you showing me this film".

# Is there such a thing as too emotive?
usually it just depends on how much you want to let go and invest in them
Toy Story 2 with Jessie's song still kicks hardest I think.
Or Sully's expression at the end of Monsters Inc, amazingly emotional moment captured perfectly in his subtle face change.

# Oh God yes...
Al for a good emotional rollercoaster, but the cynical manipulation of emotion that you get in a lot of these really irritates me.

Right. Let's see if it posts this time.

# The end of Wall.E sticks out for me before Up.
The first ten minutes of Up really got me.
I suppose something being "too emotive" is when scenes become pointless and detract from the story line, which I don't think any Pixar film has done yet. I think it's getting close though. The audience would have got the message with half of the montage scene cut out - as brilliantly made as it was.
