I want to see those last three as well.
"Up" was really good.
"District 9" was not for everyone (some folks I talk to couldn't stomach the not-so-thinly-veiled political commentary), but I liked it. I thought the story was good, the main (human) character was interesting, and the effects really had me scratching my head saying "how'd they do that?". You'll see what I mean.
"The Soloist" was good, but with Downey and Foxx in the lead roles, I can't help but think that, should the story have been better written, this movie would have been Oscar material all the way.
