353. Up (2009)
Thanks for the adventure. Now go have one of your own.
Think about all of the television shows and movies that you have watched that have moved you to tears. Now think about the amount of time and effort the shows creators put towards your emotional investment. It usually happens around the end of a movie or could be as long as years in a television series. The guys from Pixar did it here in 12 minutes. I would put the first quarter-hour of this film up against any nearly any piece of narrative entertainment as the fastest successful emotional wallop in history. The rest of the movie is not bad either.
