No I'm 100% serious about this and I wouldn't be surprised at all it would make me very proud of the Oscars to pick this one as the winner. I mean seriously, do they understand subtlety at all? She isn't extremely girly or a spoiled brat either and to me she's one of the most original characters Pixar have created. This is the only movie other than the Iron Giant that has ever made me cry. I was anticipating this movie since I saw the trailer, but not as much as other upcoming movies. For some reason, I couldn't quite catch this movie in theaters and I managed to watch it on an international flight.
All this might be considered a tad too much for young children to appreciate, but with time, they may probably realize how beautifully honest this movie was in trying to portray their growth and the underlying issues. Unles of course you're a little kid in which case the whole thing was way too heavy. And for a long time it finally got that craft after watching this movie and it also returned my love for Pixar again. Pixar did not please its intended audience, nor did it please the grown ups. 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. 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 complete inaccuracy of anyone feeling only one emotion at a time, everything about this movie was casually ableist. I think this year could be their most important message they've delivered us and I am very thankful to Pixar for showing us that. I want to do something, then I don't, then I do again. 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. 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. One might think that the superficial nature of the characters Anger is angry, Fear is always scared etc.
It makes sense, and Pete Docter does an excellent job at this. 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. There is absolutely no nuance in this film. 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. Growing pains and social issues affect her while she grapples with increasingly complex situations, both at home and school. Anger literally catches on fire, sadness is blue, and joy looks like every boring same-faced cartoon princess. Even after having the ending spoiled to me I still cried under my 3D glasses.
Way too much time went into world-building and showing off the various landscapes and rooms of Riley's mind for there to be any actual storyline. 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. I still didn't think it'd be as fantastic as it was, but went to see it in theaters anyway. Amy Poehler's outstanding performance makes Joy simultaneously the strongest and weakest character in the film emotionally, that is. Even though we are inside the head of Riley for the majority of the film, and the events that drive the movie are essentially her reactions to her new world moving from Minnesota to San Francisco , the story is Joy's.
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. 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. And my answer to that is simply: No not at all! The film hits all the high notes, with perfect intonation, and with discipline and passion. I was a little annoyed by the amount of praise it received for originality, because the idea itself isn't exactly original. And hopefully can finally change the minds of millions of people who still believes that animated movies are just for children, and hopefully it ends soon when they see Inside Out. Before I was able to see this movie I refused to read any reviews here especially the negatives. The animation is constantly eye-drawing and detailed; the characters' glistening skin is particularly wondrous.
It is every bit a Disney-Pixar classic and as emphatic a return to form as it can get. Overall, I would not recommend this movie to anyone. The humor compensates with trademark Pixar staple of jokes, albeit intended for slightly more mature viewers. Finally, Riley tries to run away and it just so happens that joy returns and fixes everything before she has the chance to get too far. If you can spare 94 minutes, then I recommend Inside Out, and if you don't have 94 minutes, make time to watch it. Riley is brilliantly sympathetic throughout, even with her difficult mood swings, and the supporting characters are perfectly entertaining. Was this movie seriously that bad?

This is one of few movies I've gone into with high expectations and still came out blown away. Along the way, Christopher encounters a series of characters who shape his life. Some people I've heard complained about her sudden mood swings, but I have those all the time. Though I do wished we could have gotten a little more screen time with her. She's relatable, which really adds to the movie as no one can relate to only a single emotion. This is even more of a flaw when we later see the emotions in other characters heads, Riley's parents, her teacher, etc. 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.
