I saw Up yesterday, and I think it's one of Pixar's best. I've never been moved by a cartoon before, well maybe as a kid, but the first part of the movie was very touching. It's incredible how they managed to show the life of Carl and Ellie in just a few minutes, and then evoke some strong emotions. Usually that takes at least half a movie to do that.

Regarding the violence, I'm not that squeamish about it. If you have a problem with the violence in Up, then you'd better put a lock on your TV for your kids, because the average cartoons kids are watching feature far more violence. Even so, wasn't Bambi's mother shot? Didn't the villain in The Rescuers have a shotgun?

I agree that Up is more tailored to adults, compared to other Pixar films, though.
