S1E10: Up

Taylor Gaines and Tyler B. Commons huff some helium and put their homes on their backs for the halfway mark of the series, 2009’s “Up.”

They reveal the several alterations to the movie’s plot prior to its release, break down whether a house could be lifted by balloons (with science!), and talk about just how insanely drug-addled “Up” feels. They also, of course, cry together over the saddest sequence in Pixar history, laugh together over Doug the dog, and yell at each other over where the movie falls in the Natural Selection rankings.

Stay tuned until the end to learn about the only movie Pixar had to can well into production.
