Inside Out could take lead as best Pixar movie made to date! Check out my Inside Out Review.
Last week I was at an advance screening of Disney Pixar’s newest movie Inside Out. This movie follows Riley who struggles to find her identity through a tough transition from her home to San Fransisco. This movie has a simple basis. Have you ever wanted to know what was going through someone’s mind? Inside Out takes you inside the mind to show you exactly what is going on!
Inside Riley’s 11 year old mind, five Emotions are hard at work, led by lighthearted optimist Joy (voice of Amy Poehler), whose mission is to make sure Riley stays happy. Fear (voice of Bill Hader) heads up safety, Anger (voice of Lewis Black) ensures all is fair and Disgust (voice of Mindy Kaling) prevents Riley from getting poisoned—both physically and socially. Sadness (voice of Phyllis Smith) isn’t exactly sure what her role is, and frankly, neither is anyone else.
When Riley’s family relocates to a scary new city, the Emotions are on the job, eager to help guide her through the difficult transition. But when Joy and Sadness are inadvertently swept into the far reaches of Riley’s mind—taking some of her core memories with them—Fear, Anger and Disgust are left reluctantly in charge. Joy and Sadness must venture through unfamiliar places—Long Term Memory, Imagination Land, Abstract Thought and Dream Productions—in a desperate effort to get back to Headquarters, and Riley.
Along the journey, they run into Bing Bong (voiced by Richard King) who is Riley’s imaginary friend! Bing Bong has to deal with the fact that Riley is forgetting about him while trying to help Joy and Sadness along their path to get back to the command center!
So what did I think of Inside Out? I was blown away at the complexity and humor in this movie. I am a huge lover of Pixar and what they have done in the past, but this movie blew the past movies out of the water! Inside Out is set up to be one of the best movies this year with a ton of emotion, humor, and an overall lesson for the masses to live by!
