Today is my 43rd Birthday and I can think of no better way for me to spend this day than to rewatch some of my all-time favorite films. So sit back and enjoy reviews of some of my all-time favorites.
Let’s continue this fun with….. Inside Out (2015), my final film for my birthday
Number of Times Seen – 4 (3 Jul 2015, 16 Nov 2015, 17 Feb 2016 and 11 Jan 2017)
Brief Synopsis – The inner-workings of the mind of a young girl are explored via the main 5 emotions that control her actions
My Take on it – This film is still my favorite film from 2015 because it is such an inspiring film where all the pieces are put together so well.
They do an amazing job of taking the complexities of how our minds work and try to make it a simple, mechanical well-oiled machine.
When one thinks about it, the way they have mapped out the functions of the brain and personality seems to make so much sense.
The tone of the film is quite perfect and they still manage to give an intuitive message to both kids and adults alike, each to their own understanding.
The characters all feel quite fresh and unique but it’s quite easy to relate to each and every one of them.
As with most (if not all) PIXAR films, the voice cast is superb and they all work extremely well here.
The script is excellent because they are able to add so much humor, wit and a lot of poignant messages about life and the way our minds work.
I’m sure there are people out there who don’t like this movie, but I personally find it hard to imagine anyone couldn’t fall in love with this spectacular film.
I also believe that this is one of the best PIXAR films to date and ranks quite high on the list of their films.
Bottom Line – Love the way this film recreates the complexities of the mind in a simplistic view. It makes so much sense that our minds work like this. They were able to set the tone of it all so perfect while still keeping on track with a intuitive message for both kids and adults to enjoy. The characters feel so fresh and unique yet we can all easy relate to each and every one of them. Amazing voice cast works extremely well here. The script is filled with so much wit, humor and even an inspiring message that it’s so hard not to love this movie. It’s one of the very best PIXAR Films to date. Highly Highly Recommended!
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Psychologists and other experts were consulted so the writers could make the way Riley’s mind works scientifically accurate. For example, it is believed that short-term memories made during the day are converted into long-term memories during sleep, which is what happens in Riley’s mind. (From IMDB)
Rating – Oscar Worthy (no change from original review)
