Inside Out

Now that Ben's back from Guatemala, tonight we belatedly went to see Pixar's latest, Inside Out.

If there was any thought that Pixar had lost its way with Cars 2 and Brave, Inside Out should end that. Director Pete Docter of Monsters, Inc. and Up, is probably Pixar's best at telling emotion-centered stories and Inside Out is wildly successful. It's also Pixar's funniest film, filled with funny moments from, among others, Amy Poehler, Bill Hader and Lewis Black.

I loved it. It will be listed among the pantheon of Pixar's best films, and that's saying something. Pete Docter really seems to understand the human condition and conveys complex emotions in a mature, wonderful and absolutely entertaining way. I can't wait to see it again.

I watched last night. You're nicer to it than I am. I think it's mid-tier Pixar at best. Sure, that puts it well above most other animated films, but of the 13 Pixar movies I've seen, it gets into the top 10, but not by a lot.
