Why would Riley be the only one whose emotions all look nothing like her? The way everything works in the brain is very interestingly and creatively explained, such as why songs get stuck in your head or how you forget things. Pixar did not please its intended audience, nor did it please the grown ups. Either way its a definite miss. Aside from the boring concept, this movie is way too complex and depressing for children. The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley's mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions - Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness.
Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions - Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness. I can't imagine anyone honestly liking this movie. Riley voice Diane Lane :. The entire stage springs to life with any number and variety of sound effects, from hushed ambience to aggressive crashes. After all of this, the freshness of the ideas, the simplified neuroscience, the technical brilliance saying that, Giacchino's score is probably the most subtle thing in the film, exquisitely putting the finishing touches on the most emotional scenes , fleshed out characters and universal themes, all of this comes together simply to entertain us, to let us escape, and to release us emotionally, which it does by making us laugh and cry in an even and fair manner. Was this movie seriously that bad? It takes high concept and deeply philosophical ideas on human emotion and how life experiences shape one's approach to, and outlook on, life and presents and explores them smartly and captivatingly while at the same time making them charming and accessible. I recognized some dichotomies - for instance, Minnesota, usually perceived cold, is regarded as warm and comforting by Riley while San Francisco, renowned for its sunny weather, is seen as foreign and unwelcome.
And yet somehow they don't feel flat or like they defined by a single emotion. Their new house is small and dirty, the local pizza shop serves only yucky organic pie topped with broccoli, and hockey just isn't the same when played inside and without her familiar teammates. Do yourself a favor and watch this magnificent gem. The answer, as the movie suggests, may be in working together, in defining experiences and processing memories not only in the moment, but in an evolving way that colors them with life's forward momentum. It's funny, creative, emotional, well-acted, realistic, and very, very well done. There's not a perceptible drop-off in vitality or precision in 3D. In terms of cast and crew, the voice actors are superb selections - Lewis Black aces the Angry persona with generous dollops of sarcasm; Mindy Kaling is just perfect voicing Disgust; Richard Kind's performance as the imaginary Bing Bong is an absolute tear-jerker, while Kaitlyn Dias shows remarkable poise playing Riley.
It makes sense, and Pete Docter does an excellent job at this. 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. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. The other contrast I noticed was all five emotional figures Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear, and Disgust do not always stay true to form, with Joy especially exhibiting nuances far beyond what her name implies - case in point, her touching admission preceding the last act that entire sequence was too much for my eyes to take, by the way. Way too much time went into world-building and showing off the various landscapes and rooms of Riley's mind for there to be any actual storyline. Note that scenes are presented in the form of early storyboard renditions and are not complete.
The humor compensates with trademark Pixar staple of jokes, albeit intended for slightly more mature viewers.

Amy Poehler's outstanding performance makes Joy simultaneously the strongest and weakest character in the film emotionally, that is. And her emotions aren't sure what to do with the sudden life change, either. I mean seriously, do they understand subtlety at all? It's proof that when Disney and Pixar work together magical things happen. There is absolutely no nuance in this film.
Overall, I would not recommend this movie to anyone. The film manages to explore one of the most complicated issues humans have ever faced: what, exactly, goes on inside the head, and even if the movie doesn't really touch on it in a tangible way, in the soul, when emotions run rampant, when life manages to influence -- for better or for worse -- the goings-on in the hear and now, the memories of the past, and the general perception of where one has been, where one is, and where one may be headed in life. Mom voice Kyle MacLachlan :. Not to mention none of the emotions look like Riley, the little girl. I want to do something, then I don't, then I do again. This is even more of a flaw when we later see the emotions in other characters heads, Riley's parents, her teacher, etc.
Other than that its all very dull and if it doesn't make you cry, you'll probably fall asleep. Young Riley voiced by Kaitlyn Dias has grown up a happy little girl in Minnesota. Her Joy is not an infallible leader, but one who accepts others in the face of challenging situations and plows ahead with inspiring positive energy. Growing pains and social issues affect her while she grapples with increasingly complex situations, both at home and school. This is the only movie other than the Iron Giant that has ever made me cry. And I wasn't the only one.
More intimate settings also benefit, of course, both in Riley's mind and in the real world. The film hits all the high notes, with perfect intonation, and with discipline and passion. That's not to say that the film isn't interesting, detailed or multi-layered, but the reason that was repeating in my head to see it again was 'it's really, really good. She isn't extremely girly or a spoiled brat either and to me she's one of the most original characters Pixar have created. The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley's mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. Making someone like me feel emotion is a true feat for a movie.
It's all very fun to watch and see what Disney and Pixar came up with. But the beauty of this medium is that it offers filmmakers opportunities to steer audiences to more engaging experiences; Pete Docter and Co accomplish this with aplomb. When he died, I honestly felt relieved not to hear his irritating voice any more. Unles of course you're a little kid in which case the whole thing was way too heavy. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions - Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness. Bing Bong voice Bill Hader :.
Synopsis 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. Inside Out earns my highest recommendation. Outside the mental world, Riley feels very real. And I'm not joking about that, Inside Out is truly amazing. The entire cast brings a familiar but, at the same time, unique cadence to each character, emoting their core emotional purpose in the voices while also making them friendly and approachable.
