As touched on before, the balance between humour and sadness is strong and impressive; the amount of emotions that the film displays and takes us through is varied and immersive, yet not overwhelming. If you can spare 94 minutes, then I recommend Inside Out, and if you don't have 94 minutes, make time to watch it. The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley's mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. It is a must watch. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Animation Comedy Family 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. The other contrast I noticed was all five emotional figures Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear, and Disgust do not always stay true to form, with Joy especially exhibiting nuances far beyond what her name implies - case in point, her touching admission preceding the last act that entire sequence was too much for my eyes to take, by the way.
Inside Out begins with a good story line, but sadness better named depression is the biggest part of the movie. Pixar has done far better than this and even the mediocre 'Brave' and 'Cars' are far better. These people should be locked up in a jail for attempting to stop bringing this movie to the world. But it is Amy Poehler who steals the show in a coruscating blend of vivacity, vibrancy, and vicariousness. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Yes, yes of course it is. For children and adults alike, I recommend this work of art.
That's not to say the rest of the movie isn't original, however. This movie was such a waste of talent and time!!! Bing Bong the imaginary friend who was a furry pink elephant was out of place and his design was really uncreative. Riley is brilliantly sympathetic throughout, even with her difficult mood swings, and the supporting characters are perfectly entertaining. They took an old concept, made it incredibly literal, and then botched it up with inconsistencies. This is one of few movies I've gone into with high expectations and still came out blown away.
Pete Docter gave us the outstanding Up six years ago and ably accompanied by Ronnie del Carmen, has categorically demonstrated that he is a fabulous storyteller and a master entertainer.

And what did you else expect? 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. It's funny, creative, emotional, well-acted, realistic, and very, very well done. I almost couldn't breathe in some parts and yes it was that funny it had a good balance of their usual Pixar humor with some very witty small jokes that appeared at times.
Before I start, I will say this; I'm writing this after coming back from a second viewing of Inside Out. Other than that its all very dull and if it doesn't make you cry, you'll probably fall asleep. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. I could hear my manly rugby- playing friends crying harder than I did next to me. Synopsis 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. Not only is the concept of 'people controlling your brain' tired and used multiple times, they managed to make it even more boring.
The story revolves around a young girl child who is happy in her world and has to suddenly acclimatize to another environment when her family has to move. The way everything works in the brain is very interestingly and creatively explained, such as why songs get stuck in your head or how you forget things. After all of this, the freshness of the ideas, the simplified neuroscience, the technical brilliance saying that, Giacchino's score is probably the most subtle thing in the film, exquisitely putting the finishing touches on the most emotional scenes , fleshed out characters and universal themes, all of this comes together simply to entertain us, to let us escape, and to release us emotionally, which it does by making us laugh and cry in an even and fair manner. But there's two main reasons why people watch some films more than once at the cinema, especially where I come from; either the film was interesting, detailed, or multi-layered and needs to be seen again to sink in properly, or, it was really, really good. I still didn't think it'd be as fantastic as it was, but went to see it in theaters anyway.
Inside Out is every bit a Pixar fan's well-deserved reward for patience. But the beauty of this medium is that it offers filmmakers opportunities to steer audiences to more engaging experiences; Pete Docter and Co accomplish this with aplomb. There are, from what I remember, no laugh out loud jokes. The film executes such clever ideas with simplicity and ease, leaving us to feel for the characters rather than worry about the 'science' of it all, or even being worried about 'not getting it'. Aside from the complete inaccuracy of anyone feeling only one emotion at a time, everything about this movie was casually ableist. 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. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions - Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness.
I must admit that I cried a couple of times during the movie, because it has some really touching moments. The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley's mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. I absolutely love Inside Out, it was one of my favorite movies of 2015, and I hope you 1 Star people live your lives full of misery. 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. Being probably the most flawed character in the film paradoxically, maybe , it's her journey we care about the most, and she ends up being the most in-depth character in the film, occasionally questioning her actions in the first half well, the cynics will be , and becoming the most sympathetic by the end.
There were so many random characters introduced for 5 seconds which served no purpose other than to lighten the mood, and they failed at that too. For a long time I had stubbornly repeated that Toy Story would always be my favourite from Pixar, but I changed my mind shortly after watching this one. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions - Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness. Some people I've heard complained about her sudden mood swings, but I have those all the time. Growing up learning how to control your feelings and learning the importance of every one of them.
And boy, am I glad I did! That's not to say that the film isn't interesting, detailed or multi-layered, but the reason that was repeating in my head to see it again was 'it's really, really good. Aside from the boring concept, this movie is way too complex and depressing for children. Everything felt extremely dragged out and joy and sadness ran into obstacle after obstacle trying to get back to the control center. Amy Poehler's outstanding performance makes Joy simultaneously the strongest and weakest character in the film emotionally, that is. I loved the way Pixar made this world inside the main character of Riley, it is very creatively done and was in some ways just how I had imagined it. One last but not least thing to say: I really had a good time watching Inside Out and the audience loved it too and at the very end of the movie it's not always this usual for my home country and this was no exception everyone applauded and so did I and I frankly believe it deserves the credit it receives. One might think that the superficial nature of the characters Anger is angry, Fear is always scared etc.
