Reel Snippet – Inside Out


Inside Out is not only another great Pixar film, but a landmark movie of this year. It hits all the standards of an average Pixar movie: great animation, great writing, and great emotional moments. In fact, the emotional moments make up the majority of the film, which is fitting considering that the major characters are literally emotions. But what makes this stand out is how simple and yet incredibly complex the whole thing is. The moral… actually, I don’t think there is just one moral. There are so many things people can take away from this, including the importance of sadness, the dangers of being constantly happy, emotional complexity, the power of family through the hardest times, and that’s just to name a few. I’m sure other people could rattle off plenty more that I didn’t cover.

The humor is few and far between, but every single joke hits bull’s-eye. The casting is also pitch perfect, especially Lewis Black whose roles as Anger fits him like a glove. Even a comic relief character who I thought would be completely annoying manages to both be entertaining and pull out some really emotional scenes. The real world characters are also fleshed out with the little time that’s given to them, which is a pretty big accomplishment. I don’t know how this compares to Up or Wall-E, but it definitely ranks as top-tier Pixar and it is well worth your time.
