Movie Review: "Inside Out" Another Masterpiece from Disney-Pixar

The trailers for the movie "Inside Out" have just presented the tip of the iceberg of awesomeness this film contains. It is actually cool how Disney-Pixar have went great lengths to show us "What if our emotions have feelings?" and the tiny voices in our heads are personified.

The film "Inside Out" is written in a way that everyone could relate to the scenes and it hits our nostalgic memories. A film that both kids and grown-ups would surely enjoy, "Inside Out" is an exciting movie for the family. The audience are invited to join the interesting adventure of Riley as a growing up kid. We try to understand how an 11 year old process the indescribable feelings as she leaves her comfort zone and accept the changes undergoing in their family.

It is amazing how the animators and artist imagined and visualized the control center in our minds. The different emotions constantly keeping everything checked and the workers that roam the different parts of our consciousness and subconscious. It's fun how they imagine our memories are spheres that are like candies that are stored in a wide library of thought being maintained by different small entities in our mind.

There are many parts of the film that are truly hilarious and some parts that would probably make you cry. "Inside Out" is a perfect balance of different scenes that triggers our emotions in a very effective way.

The films cinematography and animation is superb. The way the emotions are animated are impressive. The visualization of the mind and consciousness is very unexpected. One of my favorite is the place of abstract reasoning and thoughts and imagination land.


Based in Headquarters, the control center inside 11-year-old Riley’s mind, five Emotions are hard at work, led by lighthearted optimist Joy, whose mission is to make sure Riley stays happy. Fear heads up safety, Anger ensures all is fair and Disgust prevents Riley from getting poisoned—both physically and socially. Sadness isn’t exactly sure what her role is, and frankly, neither is anyone else.

What is she thinking?

It’s a question that has gone through the minds of parents worldwide who are attempting to raise teenagers—and it’s one that occurred to “Inside Out” director – the Oscar®-winning Pete Docter (“Up”) – as he witnessed his own daughter Elie growing up

Filmmakers then went about defining each Emotion, assigning them a purpose in Riley’s mind, and tackling the difficult process of finding the right look for each. “The look and design of the Emotions had to remind people that they are personifications of feelings,” says Docter. “They’re not little people. They’re Emotions. They’re made of energy—they’re made up of thousands of particles, which kind of looks like energy. We wanted to capture what emotions feel like—the shapes, the colors—as well as their personalities.”
