  • Wow. This was some funny stuff.

    Wish I could have laughed out loud, but it’s 3:13 in the morning.

  • Creepy.

  • Bunji

    THAT was funny! I WAS kinda reminded of “Gran Torino” while I watched “Up”.

  • I thought Up was like David Lynch’s “The Straight Story”.

    HARRY BROWN would have been a better audio choice than the soggy, limp GRAN TORINO.

  • Pixar should’ve contacted Clint Eastwood instead of Ed Asner.

  • Hans W.

    Wow! Seems like a lot of work to sync up the dialogue with parts of “Up” and still make it look like a real trailer.
    And indeed: Clint Eastwood would make a good voice for an animated film…

  • Wow, neat stuff. And did this sort of thing all begin with “Apocalypse Pooh”?

  • Good editing job :)

    Nice effort. Would’ve been better if you didn’t use the kid for two different characters from Gran Torino, esp. the young priest.
