Inside Out




Inside Out 


We really get into Pixar movies here at Family Friendly Gaming. I am so thankful we were provided a reviewable copy of Inside Out on Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD. The premise of this movie is interesting. Five emotions are in the head of a person and control them. The emotions are Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear, and Disgust. They can work together, fight one another, etc.

Riley is the little eleven year old girl who is happy, and content with her life in Minnesota. Her parents move the family to San Francisco. Not only is there culture shock, but she misses her friends. At the same time Joy and Sadness get sucked out of headquarters with the core memories. This means the major parts of Riley's personality start to fall apart and vanish.

Joy learns along the way how valuable sadness can be in Inside Out. Since it is through sadness we can get new joy. There are a couple of things in Inside Out I am not very pleased with. The mother keeps a thought of some other man around in an enticement to lust, and coveting way. The father is shown as weak, clueless and out of touch. Will Inside Out be accused of being part of the war on men?

Some of the bonus features on Inside Out are Riley's First Date?, Lava Short Film, Story of the Story, Mixed Emotions, Our Dads the Filmmakers, Into the Unknown the Sounds of Inside Out, The Misunderstood Art of Animation Film Editing. I really liked Riley's First Date. It is awesome when the bonus short matches the movie it is attached to. I hope this becomes a trend. The Lava Short Film has a wonderful song in it. The rest are behind the scenes.

There are plenty of bright colors in Inside Out. There is also peril, and some characters cease to exist in Inside Out. The whole concept of the memory dump is very interesting to see. I also liked the concept of voices in our head. San Francisco is shown in a bad light which is very realistic. It is a shame there was no spiritual nature in the head of Riley. It would have been awesome for Jesus to appear and stop her from running away.

There is a light lesson in Inside Out about letting go of the past and embracing change. Sadness is given a prominent role in Inside Out, even though she is a depressing character. I liked seeing the emotions in the heads of the other characters too. It led to some comedic moments like when we see inside the boy who meets Riley at the Hockey Rink, and then in the animated short.
