Inside Out: Definitely in my Top 5 Best-Ever Pixar Movies. Not Exaggerating.

Yep, for me it’s right up there with the Toy Story trilogy, Finding Nemo, Wall-E, Ratatouille and Up. After 5 long years I have finally, FINALLY, come across an animated film which I can watch and rewatch and rewatch until I’m NEVER sick of it and then rewatch it again a bazillion more times with my future kids and grandkids. Thank you Pixar and Disney! THANK YOU!!!!!!!

Movie Synopsis:

Excerpt taken from Rotten Tomatoes

“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. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her five core emotions – Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness. The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley’s main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.”

My Take on the Movie:

I have an advice for the adults: please bring lots of tissues with you when you go watch this movie. Otherwise, like me, you’ll seem like a blubbering mess who has nothing to wipe her tears and nose with. I had to keep sniffling loudly until my tears settled and then again after every 10 minutes the waterworks started again. That was the only complaint I had with my experience. I had no tissues. Don’t make the same mistake.


Yes, I’m sensitive. But there is a reason for it. I don’t tell this to most people that I’ve been going through severe depression for the past few months and I don’t understand my emotional instability, but Inside Out helped me make some sense out of it.

Inside Out was a 1 hour and 42 minute long heartbreaking, hilarious, emotional, adventurous, complex and GENIUS study on human emotion.

I won’t tell you much about the film, but I’ll tell you this: I could relate to Riley on so many levels. WE ALL CAN. Remember how we were when we were little? What kind of personality we had? Remember that unconditional happiness? Being a goofball? Having so many best friends? Having the best time of your life with your family? Just feeling happy no matter what. And as we grow old we start to destroy those fun and joyful personality traits. As we mature we let the Sadness and Anger take control of us and guide us in our life. Joy starts to take a back-seat. I don’t remember the last time I felt genuinely happy. But after seeing this film *spoilers ahead* I understood that even though Sadness does become an important emotional guide when we grow old but that doesn’t mean you should let go of Joy. They both together can help you build a much better and emotionally stable personality. They both can (and have to) work hand in hand.

And hey, it isn’t just a sob-fest. This movie is equally hilarious and entertaining. That’s the absolute beauty of it. They have struck such a perfect balance in making this piece of art where it doesn’t get too emotional or too kiddish. The kids will get to experience a wonderfully entertaining adventure but the adults will get to explore the complex workings of this amazing world that exists within the human mind.

So please, please I beg you, please go watch Inside Out while it lasts in theaters. PLEASE!! Reward Pixar and Disney and their entire team on this beautiful effort. I promise you, you will love every single second of it. There is not one dull moment. It is a perfect film for spending your hard-earned cash on and having some quality fun time with your family and friends. Please go, NOW! Immediately!

Life Lesson Learned:

Life is gonna take some pretty hard twists and turns as we grow old; it’s gonna throw lemons at your face time and time again. But never let that kill off the best part of you. Acknowledge sadness when it’s needed but don’t let depression and anger take a strong hold on you. You are the master of your own emotional stability. Fight back, proudly and happily, with the support of your loved ones, and life will start to make a lot more sense.

      Lovely daughter you have ^_^ And it’s great you liked PP2 😀 Too bad it just wasn’t according to my taste, but maybe if I rewatch it on Bluray at the comfort of my own home then maybe I’ll like it better 😛

    Hey, sorry to hear you’ve been having a tough few months- amazing recommendation for the movie that it has helped you make sense of it! I will probably not get a chance to see it at the cinema, but will check it out when on DVD down the track…

    Confession: I have not seen ANY pixar films- closest I got was a strong desire to watch Up, but still haven’t! I’ll obviously need to do it for the sake of research before my baby gets to cartoon watching age : )

      Thank you dear :’) Life has been pretty hard for me (emotionally) since January of this year but things are getting better with time 🙂 And oh you haven’t watched any Pixar movie? When your baby gets to the movie watching age please please watch the Toy Story trilogy, Up, Ratatouille, Wall-E, Monster Inc., The Incredibles, Finding Nemo, Brave, and now Inside Out 🙂 Trust me you’ll have an amazing time with your little cutie pie ^_^ ❤
