Inside Out: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers

Thanks to Walt Disney Studios PH, we still had a hangover from the past weekend because of this newest Pixar masterpiece. Director Pete Docter and Ronnie Del Carmen visited Manila, and we had a chance to see the film in IMAX 3D. Inside Out is already assured as the best animated feature this year, and we are not going to be surprised if it wins an Academy Award next year. 

Riley (Kaitlyn Dias) grew up and had a lot of fond memories in Minnesota. But, when her father got a new job in San Francisco, she struggles to adjust from her new surroundings. She is led by her five emotions - Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). They all live in the Headquarters who controls her mind and advise her on how to feel in her everyday life. However, Riley's emotions also had a hard time in adapting to the new environment and they try to deal with some issues to keep her happy.

Pixar has been giving us a lot of classic animated movies from Toy Story to Up; providing our generation with imaginative concept and fresh ideas. Inside Out is pretty much the same feeling from their previous creations. It brings something new; from colorful characters, to outstanding voice actors and compelling story that leave a mark. It will play with the viewers' emotions, and Sadness will trigger the button to make you cry.

The visuals were extraordinary, particularly on an IMAX screen but make sure to find the right seat for you to enjoy. The character designs and the voice actors are a perfect fit. Each emotion shined, but it all went well for Amy Poehler and Phyllis Smith (Joy and Sadness) who took major minutes as the story revolves most of the time with them. We also don't want to miss mentioning Bing Bong (voiced by Richard Kind) who is a key character that will surely melt your hearts out.

Overall, Inside Out is another instant Pixar treasure that you can watch over and over again and get the same nostalgic feeling each time. You're going to leave the cinema moved with its touching story and probably wonder if a headquarters actually exists inside your head. This is a family film you shouldn't miss at the cinema as it will leave you entertained the entire time.
