Hello fellow moviegoers!
Inside Out is the newest film brought to us by Disney-Pixar and is definitely their most original idea since Up. Inside Out features the voice talents of Amy Poehler, Phyllis Smith, Lewis Black, Mindy Kaling, Bill Hader, and Richard Kind. The basic plotline follows the emotions in 11 year-old Riley's head, as they all try to cope with moving across the country to San Francisco, leaving all of their friends behind. This film has an immense amount of potential, but does it really live up to the hype?
Inside Out is a rollercoaster of emotions both literally and figuratively. The way Pixar went about presenting this idea about "meeting the little voices inside your head" was simply brilliant. I cannot imagine this film being in the hands of any other company except for Pixar. Ten years from now, Inside Out will definitely be in the same conversation with Toy Story, Finding Nemo, and Up.
The voice-cast in this film is definitely one of the things that stands out. Casting Amy Poehler as Joy was probably one of the smartest moves they made. (If you've seen Parks and Recreation, then you know why) Also Lewis Black as Anger was probably the funniest character in the entire film. When I saw the cast for this movie, I was afraid I would literally hear their voices and see them in my head every time their character spoke. I am happy to say that wasn't the case. In fact, most of the time I didn't even realize it was them talking!
The way that Pixar went about designing the inside out Riley's head, and all of the things going on was magnificent. It was so interesting seeing how some of the things we do or think were translated into this world. Also, it is worth noting that adults will enjoy this movie just as much if not more than kids. There are plenty of jokes in there that are just going to fly over a kid's head, but every parent in the audience will think is hilarious.
I realize that this is kind of a short review, but really there isn't anything else to say. Inside Out is a wonderfully crafted, original idea from Pixar. Adults will love it. Kids will love it. The race for Best Animated Feature at the Oscars might as well be over. It is definitely my favorite movie of the year so far.
So what did you think of Inside Out? Do you think this is one of Pixar's best films to date? Or do you think it is just as forgettable as Cars 2? Let me know by commenting on this post!

Hello fellow moviegoers!
Jurassic World stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Vincent D'Onofrio. It is the fourth film in the massively successful Jurassic Park franchise and has a lot riding on its shoulders. The general plot of the movie centers around the fact that audiences are getting bored of the same-old dinosaurs. To counteract this, they decide to genetically create a new dinosaur that is bigger and smarter than anything in the park. However the monster that they create is a little too big and smart for them to handle. The expectations for this film are incredibly high, but does it live up to them? Here's what I think...
Jurassic World definitely is another great addition to the slew of awesome movies coming out in 2015. This movie is definitely the sequel to Jurassic Park that audiences have been wanting since 1993. Before you ask, no, you do not need to see The Lost World: Jurassic Park or Jurassic Park III in order to understand this one. But you should probably see the first one if you haven't, as the events of that film are mentioned heavily several times.
One of the biggest worries people had with this film is the whole Chris Pratt training the raptors thing. I am glad to say, that the way that they went about presenting this situation makes it believable, for the most part. Rest assured, you can sleep sound knowing that we do get glimpses of those terrifying raptors from the first one.
The characters in this movie are overall pretty decent. They aren't going to be what you talk about leaving this movie, except for maybe Chris Pratt. His character in this movie isn't what a lot of people were afraid it was going to be. He isn't just Star-Lord again. It is nice to see him do a different sort of role than he has been doing recently. After seeing him in this, I am actually excited by those rumors of him being Indiana Jones. The two characters that I didn't really like were the two kids. It felt like they were kind of shoehorned into the film for a couple of cool action sequences. When the film cuts over to them, it definitely slows down a little bit, because it is giving them way too much backstory. It should have just focused on the main storyline of hunting the Indominus Rex.
If you decide to see this movie, don't go into it expecting a great movie with relatable characters, a plot that will suck you into the movie, and action sequences that will make you laugh out of enjoyment. Because it isn't that. This is an incredibly fun action movie. If you can go into the movie not worrying too much about plot and characterization, then you will definitely enjoy this movie.
So what did you think of Jurassic World? I won't ask how much you enjoyed it compared to the first one, because the first one is so great. But, how do you think it compares to the sequels? Do you think this is the best sequel to Jurassic Park that we've gotten yet? I certainly think so. Let me know by commenting on this post!
