Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it's no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions - Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness. The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley's mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley's main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.
How sad is this?
Wow! What a bizarre film! Unfortunately the few funny moments there were were quite overshadowed by it's completely weird and random vibe throughout.
Excellent and certainly provocative... If nothing else, the film is a real conversation starter.
A terrific literary drama and character piece that shows how the process of creating art can be seen differently by those doing it and those looking at it from the outside.
Watched Inside Out on the plane after everyone told me I was going to cry. Didn't cry, but I did take something away from it. Had a few chuckles as well. "Sadness" gave me a bit on anxiety. Talk about a depressing character, but I guess that was her role!
Inside Out is one of my personal favorite movies. Reasons why?1. It's funny 2. Great animation 3. The plot is understandable 4. Great actorsSure, movies like Toy Story 1 and 3, Coco, and Finding Nemo were better, but this is still an absolute must-watch you should see.10/10
This isn't the most epic of Pixar titles. Neither is it the most beautifully animated. The storyline is flawed and some times hard to follow. Logic, there is non - though I believe this was the author's intention to highlight the quirks of the mind. Yet it is one of the few movies that really move me. For some reason I cry every time I see it. I share the protagonist's experience of moving to a whole new place, changing schools and losing friends. But other movies that tell this story don't move me this way. Some how the author reaches into my deepest nostalgic emotions and pull them out. As soon as I pause the film I stop crying and wonder what the hell I'm doing, only to start again as soon as I return to watch again. I really can't explain what this movie does so well, but it's touched this heart of stone. And even made me write a review about it. Truly one of those movies where the sums are greater than the parts. I don't think its particularly entertaining, beautiful or mesmerising for children. But way above other animated films, it nails the depth that make all Pixar's films so appealing to adults. (Except Cars. That's a terrible franchise.)
I feel mean being negative about this movie but I am not the target audience and only got half way through it. You can see the incredible imagination and skill everyone has put into getting this together but unfortunately I wished it hadn't been so garish and whizz-bang.
