I couldn't write a review of Up because I was too busy crying like a baby, so here's a pictographic appraisal from our guest reviewer:
I did, however, have to endure this exchange with the chap at the box office (which took place at about 5.30pm):
The Incredible Suit: “Can I have two tickets for Up at 8.40, please”
The Chap At The Box Office: (incomprehensible mumbling) “…We only have tickets for 6.40 or 9.10”
The Incredible Suit: “Really? Has it sold out already?”
The Chap At The Box Office: (slowly, as if talking to an imbecile) “Nnooo, we just… don’t have a showing at 8.40”
The Incredible Suit: (slowly, as if talking to an imbecile) “This is Up we’re talking about, yeah?”
The Chap At The Box Office: (pauses, as if world has been turned inside out) “You said District 9”
The Incredible Suit: (slowly, because definitely talking to an imbecile) “Nnooo, I said ‘two tickets for Up at 8.40’”
There then followed a lengthy pause in which The Chap At The Box Office stared at me very hard while he tried to work out if I was taking the piss or if there had been some kind of ripple in the space-time continuum. He then grudgingly gave me my tickets for Up and went, presumably, to get the popcorn removed from his ears.
Say it out loud to yourself. Up. District 9. Up. District 9. Up. District 9. Is there even the most microscopic phonetic similarity in those two film titles that could cause one to be mistaken for the other? Of course not. This is why God invented online booking.
