“Up,” “Up” and Away!

Audrey and I saw Up tonight; it may be my new favorite movie.  Okay, one of many favorites.  Why have just one?  In other visual mediums, it’s easy to confuse physical or surface beauty with inner goodness, but in animation and the cartoon arts, even the ugly can be beautiful.  For an example, just look at the star of Up.
