What If “UP” Was Made in the 1960s?

February 10, 2011


I saw the Pixar film “Up” recently. What a cute, cute movie!!! I love Pixar– my favorite film is “The Incredibles” (I even shelled out $20 to buy the DVD), but I also LOVE “Finding Nemo” and “Monsters,” and “Toy Story.” Those guys (and gals) at Pixar are just hilarious!! But I love “The Incredibles” best of all. If you have not seen the special “Jack Jack Attack,” you should!! LOL, the kids and I were imitating scenes for months!

“Up” was so good, too. My favorite character is “Dug.” LOL, whoever did the voice to Dug is a genius! I was literally on the floor, laughing during the dog scenes. What’s really funny is the voice for Dug is THE SAME voice I used for my beagle, Daisy. THE SAME. It’s so nice to know I’m not the only eccentric person in the world. I also loved the story behind the story– the old man all alone now, full of regrets because he and his wife had such big dreams when they were younger. It’s a very touching movie. I like it a lot.

Well, I found this online video called a “Premake: Up.” Whoever did this is brilliant! What would “Up” have been like if it was made in the 1960s?

Answer: cheesy. You betcha!

I don’t know HOW they patched those scenes together so well, but they did it. LOL It looks just like a 60s movie, doesn’t it? :pinch: oooo, cheesy, super-sized.

We are using the computer more and more for our movie watching. Unfortunately, we *still* have to crunch and crowd around the computer monitor in the living room. It’s not very comfortable. I got a laptop with an very cool HDMI port, but I have no way to plug it in to the TV. The TV only takes RCA and svideo cables, so I think I will have to buy a whole converter box, or maybe I can locate some quality Optimization-World HDMI cables? I don’t know. I am in the slow process of reorganizing (AGAIN) our entire digital network. With the addition of laptops, iPods, TVs, etc, I have to beef up the system. I am currently creating a home network server storage system since my router accepts USB cables for external hard drives. Oh BOY has that simplified things! I’m going to put all our media on the drive, so I won’t have to copy all the media onto the kids’ separate mp3 players and iPods and such. It’s too tedious for me.

Anyway, there are loads more “Premake” videos at the guy’s YouTube site. I have only seen a few, and they were very funny! But I have no idea if the others are obscene, so please exercise caution if you go there. I avoid surfing YouTube because of all the sleaze there, and my kids are verboten to visit the site.

    Hi, thanks for stopping by. I have yet to watch “UP” but it is on my short list. We are so far behind on our movie watching, the last movie was “The Hurt Locker”… I know, I know. Happy Thursday!

    I love Pixar as well! Incredibles is AWESOME! (or should that be “are” Awesome LOL). “Up” killed me though. I sobbed through all the sad parts and refuse to watch it again. Sad movies really get me and seeing that poor man all alone just hit my heart. But now that you have reminded me of Dug I think I may have to watch it again but fast forward through the sad stuff. Dug was hilarious!

    hi! I wondered over from MMOM & read this post. AWESOME!! I love it! Dug is my favorite too, how could he not be??

    Hey, I know a joke! A squirrel walks up to a tree and says, “I forgot to store acorns for the winter and now I am dead.” Ha! It is funny because the squirrel gets dead.

    Too hysterical!

    hi there, thanks for stopping by my blog

    I haven’t seen UP because I heard it was sad and I don’t like to watch movies knowing I am going to cry.

    I also have voices for my dogs, and when I use those voices I am pretty sure they know i am talking as them.

    I love “Up”! This was really cute how they did that. Very creative!!! I found myself trying to figure out which movies they took the clips from–I think I got two.

    That was great! I totally want a HDTV for hooking up to my computer monitor. Kinda pricey, anyway, but it would be cool!

    Thanks for stopping by! I know, I’m late, been taking care of sick boy. My favorite Pixar is Cars (is that Pixar? hmmm). Love the blog!!

    I love Pixar movies.
    I could’ve watched Nemo 25 times. Our girls named my husband’s blue truck after Sully from Monsters Inc.
    Thinking of some of these movies being made in the 60s makes me chuckle. I’m thinking of old episodes of The Flying Nun, which my kids like to catch on tv, when you could see the wire holding Sally Field in the air! It would’ve been so classic!
    Thanks for visiting my blog on MMOM.

    Hi Rebecca! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I’ve been sick all week and I’m just now getting out of the house. šŸ™‚ I’m going to buy a guitar this year and learn how to play. I’ve tried to learn a few times but this time I’m going to take some lessons. LOL. Hugs!
