Pixar, welcome back!
After a string of enjoyable films ‘Brave’ and ‘Monsters University’, and Pixar’s only misstep ‘Cars 2’, Pixar returns to its former glory since ‘Toy Story 3’, and after last year’s absence of a Pixar feature film; the first since 2005, Pixar returns back to its great ability of telling inventive ideas and turning them into great storytelling, and all of these features are present in the studio’s latest film ‘Inside Out’, directed and co-written by Pete Docter, director of Pixar’s great features ‘Up’ and ‘Monsters, Inc.’.
The story follows Riley’s emotions: Joy, Sadness, Anger, Disgust, and Fear. These emotions make Riley, well Riley. But after Riley moves from her hometown of Minnesota to the city landscape of San Francisco, Riley’s emotions have a hard time in the new city, and along the way, embarks on a journey through Riley’s conscious mind.
‘Inside Out’ will make you wonder if your emotions act this way, as the film features inventive ideas and tells a great story throughout these emotions, which makes this film a successful experiment from Pixar.
The animation is spectacular, being colourful and fun, with most jokes delivering on laugh out loud results, ‘Inside Out’ is the perfect family animated film.
The characters are also a delight to watch, and are voiced incredibly well.
‘Inside Out’ will make you feel all five emotions throughout this “emotional” picture.
