9. Up (2009)
Director: Pete Docter and Bob Peterson
Stars: Ed Asner, Jordan Nagai, Christopher Plummer, Delroy Lindo
Even amidst the wonderful world of Pixar's filmography, Up stands out for its moving, somewhat darker story line and fantastically colorful visuals in this story of an old man (Asner) attempting to fulfill his lifelong dream of exploring the world following the death of his wife. Among its 3D achievements, the most impressive just may be the scenes which depict the man's preferred method of transport, as he traverses the world by tying thousands of colored balloons to his house in order to head upward.
