Inside+OutSN: “Inside Out,” Pixar’s return to form

As soon as Pixar released a preview for their new animated film, which was sported as a “Major Emotion Picture,” the filmmakers very well could’ve started writing their award speeches. It was an instant front-runner.

There had been murmurs that “Inside Out” was going to be a strong film. After the lukewarm reactions to Pixar’s “Brave” and “Monster University,” as well as the critical disaster that was “Cars 2.” It seems Pixar is finally back up to speed.

“Inside Out” premiered out-of-competition at Cannes Film Festival earlier this morning. The tweets were ecstatic about the film. Many patrons said that the film had them in tears. It was held in the high regard that “Wall-E,” “Toy Story 3,” and “Up” were held in.

More and more reviews continue to trickle in, it currently holds a perfect 100% on Rotten Tomatoes with 12 recorded reviews. The easy front-runner for the Animated Film Oscar, as well as a potential Best Picture contender.

I learned this man’s name a couple years back when we were anticipating Toy Story 3, like many fans of the Toy Story trilogy, we didn’t want to see the film screw up so we monitored who they were bringing on board closely. Our confidence in Pixar helped.

At that time fans of Toy Story were still concerned with the scribe, his best credit being an R-rated Oscar-winning comedy by the name of Little Miss Sunshine. Could he really pull off a children’s film? Not just that, a finale to a trilogy that contained two other spectacular films. Some would call those films the greatest animated films of all time.  Continue reading
