If you haven’t seen it yet, then throw Up in your rental queue or buy it On-Demand. Now, not when it wins an Oscar. You’ll feel silly for avoiding it just because it’s an animated movie — we promise. What’s more, it’s the one film in 2009 that made us cry in the theater. In fact, even talking about certain scenes (like the one where you find out that the little girl is really a dead old lady who once dreamed of going on adventures but never went anywhere but it’s OK because her one real adventure was spending her life with the old man) makes us mist up a little.
But it’s also a happy movie. And Alex Balk over at The Awl just pointed us to the video for “Upular” a dance track composed using chords, bass notes, and vocal samples from the film, and which, as he explains, is “extremely joy-inducing.”
