"Up" in 3D

Friday night, my parents treated the whole family to a trip to the Regal Cinemas to see "Up" in 3D. It was a damp and rainy afternoon. And I can't think of a better way to have spent it than cuddled up with loved ones in a cozy theater.

This movie was everything a family movie should be. It had fun moments. Warm moments. Tender Moments. And even some teary moments. It did an excellent job of depicting the Godly love, tenderness and dedication between a husband and wife.

Although, it was a little disappointing to the kids, it also did a good job of showing how we shouldn't put too much faith in heroes, because they are human, too, and may not in fact be all we want or need them to be.

It is not very common to find a movie not produced by Christians that displays so many good lessons. I want to be clear in no way did they suggest that it might even be based on Christian values.

One caution I will give to parents of young children or children who are extra sensitive. There is one point where the heroe's house catches fire. This part was very upsetting to my little boys. Seven year old Nathaniel and 3 year old Samuel both jumped on me and buried their faces in my shoulder during this point of the movie.

And then, if you enjoy seeing a good movie as a family, and don't mind shelling out the $11.50 a person to go, I would highly recommend seeing this film.

Oh, and just because I thought this was too cute not to post...here's Nathaniel showing off his super cool 3D glasses.


  1. You know, Kat, I have never even heard of that movie. Maybe it's because I'm here. I'm not sure. I appreciate your review and will look forward to seeing it either if it comes to England or if it is still showing somewhere in the U.S. at the time. My last option would be to buy it when it comes out on DVD.

    Blessings to you today.

    P.S. How is your sister enjoying Italy? With you being Italian, that must have been something she really looked forward to- being able to see the "Mother" country, as my one friend likes to refer to it as.

  2. I love your new blog design! I have not heard of this film either...Arkansas can be like another country sometimes...I'll have to keep an eye out for it on Netflix in awhile.

  3. I've had a few people tell me that this is a good movie, but I haven't seen it yet.

    Cute picture of you all!
