Movie Review: Inside Out (2015) – One Of The Most Inventive Storylines I’ve Seen In Years

Published On June 29, 2015 » 2299 Views» By admin »


Pixar is back and they’re blowing minds with the new release “Inside Out.” With an inventive storyline and lots of humor, this movie is sure to delight audiences young and old.

The story focuses on Riley (voice of Kaitlyn Dias) an eleven year old girl who has just moved to San Francisco with her parents. It’s not a particular thrilling storyline. Not much happens. She tries out for sports, goes to a new school and is homesick for her old home. The action happens on the inside of Riley, where her feelings are embodied by a bunch of characters including Joy (Amy Poehler), Anger (Lewis Black), Fear (Bill Hader), Disgust (Mindy Kalig) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). From a control center in the brain, they react to Riley’s life and occasionally, fight over who gets to be in charge.

It’s a simpler storyline than Pixar has ever done. Riley isn’t a teen detective or friends with an alien. She’s just an average girl reacting to life around her. As a result, her character is infinitely relatable.

Despite the simplicity of the storyline, there’s tons of laughs and lots of intrigue. The voice actors chosen for their rolls couldn’t have been better. Lewis Black is the very embodiment of anger and he was the ideal pick for this. I imagine the guy could be ordering at a drive through and still sound like he wants to murder everyone.

Per the standard with Pixar, the animation was flawlessly adorable. They used bright colors that popped and lots of rounded edges to give the movie a soft but vibrant overall feel.

But the real winner with this movie is the pure world building done. There’s lots of fun puns and cute site gags, along with unique ideas as far as how Riley receives her experiences (as colorful bowling balls) and a train of thought comes puffing through at regular intervals. Fun puns and lots of imaginative characters keep the story moving and keep audiences of all ages engaged.

This truly is one of the most inventive storylines I’ve seen in years. The writers and animators clearly used their imaginations to the nth degree on this one. As far as imagination goes, this story is going to be hard to beat.

It’s one of those kid’s movies that’s for adults too. That’s obvious in some of the choices of actors, which tend to resonate more with adult viewers. These are all voices we’ve heard before, but now we’re seeing them in an entirely new way.

It’s adorable, but not so adorable that it comes off as sugar floss. It’s just cute enough to entertain kids and just edgy enough for parents to enjoy as well.

This one is a home run. Pixar used a simple storyline to build a complex world, got the best possible voice over actors and then set it all up with perfect animation. I can really think of nothing I didn’t like about this movie.

This one isn’t just a worth the watch. It’s a must watch.
