Inside Out

Postby Zohar » Sat Jun 20, 2015 5:26 pm UTC

I just came back from watching Inside Out and it's Pixar's best movie in years. I really hope it's a new age for Pixar, since I haven't really enjoyed any of their movies since Up (never been much of a Toy Story fan, sue me :) ). There was one grating scene (it appears in one of the trailers), but otherwise it's pretty excellent. I loved the representation of emotional processes, I loved the characters and their interactions, I loved how they solved "the conflict", I loved the story structure...

After all the raves I hate how I still have to wait a month for this to be out in the UK!

It kind of sounds like Pixar's Blood on the Tracks.

I really loved this movie - went to watch it by myself today because for some reason my friend who'd wanted to see it had heard disappointing feedback from his friends (pretty sure they are of the hipster variety).

Spoiler:
I loved how Sadness's role was basically empathy - she was the one who could empathise with Bongo and make him feel better, and when Riley was sad it allowed others to empathise with her. It was cool how they showed the new memories at the end being more complicated than just one colour as well.

I saw it a couple of weeks ago. Since then I have warned people who mention they plan on seeing it, "Warning: Movie about emotions is emotional".

Had me tearing up in several places, and I am not one that usually tears up during movies. It tugged at all my soft, fatherly bits, though.

It was a pretty cute movie. Disgust was so delightfully played.

I definitely think this was one of Pixar's best films. I do think that this film probably will resonate a lot more with adult audiences (especially parents) than with children, especially younger children.

Inside Out easily ranks among the best of Pixar. It is intelligent and thoughtful, and the execution is perfect. There are many funny moments and a few places that will hit your feelings hard. It is enjoyable for everyone aged 3 to 120, but the audience with some knowledge in human psychology probably get more out of it.

Comment from a friend who's seen it is that it's got a lot of great scenes, but the overall story's kinda weak...

Wow! There is so much to unpack in this! Extremely well done.

I just saw this movie for the first time today -- it's great! I really agree with what the poster I quoted said.

I also think that it will probably resonate more with the parents than the young kids -- it's good. It definitely ranks near the top of Pixar films for me (but it's still not better than Wall-E).

Probably my favorite Pixar movie, and the only one that has made my cry apart from Toy Story 3 (I didn't really get the fuss with Up, sorry!)

I love how it makes the concept of emotional problems digestible for kids. A friend of mine told me her neurodivergent son started to articulate his feelings better by talking about them as if they were Inside Out characters, which I thought was such a beautiful thing.
