A girl from Minnesota moves to San Francisco and had to adjust to her surrounding while emotions go out of control. Sadness who had no apparent function began making Riley cry at school, causing a sad core memory to be created. Joy who controls reward stimuli attempted to stop it from entering Riley's long term memory but was sucked into the storage tube along with Sadness; while making their way back from long term memory, Disgust who keeps Riley from being poisoned, Anger who balances morality and Fear who keeps Riley safe are left to deal with Riley's distress. It is up to all the emotions to work together to save the day.
I liked how educational the film is, it explores the personification of the cognitive neuroscience in a humourous (slap stick) kinda way. The different extreme persona showed individualistic ideology is good. While it was not exactly scientifically accurate, it attempted to show how our emotions are a result of biological drive to aid to our survival, or in this case, dealing with Riley's daily life.
Amy Poehler could not have been a better cast for Joy, she did a wondrous job playing the important role while Phyllis Smith also shone brightly. The animation was exquisite too, it brings back hope for the future of animation with fresh ideas and ambitious project. Inside Out should satisfy most viewers.

If this film achieved anything, it's making me angry for an hour and a half.

It had an overall well written script, terrific ensemble, fascinating action and important underlying theme about the problems with human trafficking. But all these liberals see is that the film is racist. -Face palm- What about the millions of women being used as sex slaves in real life? Do they matter?
While sure, the film was exaggerated on its over the top action and story, it shows what a father will do to save her daughter and it;s beautiful. The only real problem I had was the silly ending but that could be easily forgiven.

First of all let's talk about the script, it almost was a script that someone dreamed up during their sleep, the dialogues were laughably bad, nothing substantial to the plot, explicit progressive agenda weaved in through out the film with the dumbest lines like: "Dinosaurs have feelings too, they eat, they hunt and they (have sex)." The entire "I am a bad auntie cuz I have work" was totally unbelievable, if you wanna tear jerk then try something better, oh I don't know, having an actual parent would be nice. Please for Goodness sake don't do the stupid family melodrama, it's ridiculous. The "romantic" subplot was also incredibly stupid, it did not work at all. Plot holes were everywhere, I lost track of them but the first one was: If the dinosaur can detect thermal radiation then pouring gasoline on yourself WILL NOT HIDE YOU.
The CGI was also laughably bad, it was at the same level as Piranha 3D and Piranha 3D did better. If this was a black comedy then it might actually have worked, but NOOOOOOOO, this is a half ass junk of trying to mix blood (not even gore), sex, slapstick and children into this gigantic blender and the blender exploded.
The casting was absolutely horrendous with B.D. Wong being a totally unconvincing scientist reciting lines about biology he does not understand, some Haitian you can only understand him 50% of the time and some Indian you can only understand him 70% of the time. I personally felt bad for Christina Hendricks and Chris Pratt because they are good actors who were stuck in this terrible production.
Ok, yeh, they tried to link this back to the original but it also failed miserably because how on earth could they have left all those equipment behind? The T. Rex vs A. Rex was possibly the worst thing ever, is this Anaconda vs Boa? Steven Spielberg, goddamn it, stop making crap.

One for the money is a disastrous fiasco about a broke woman's quest to find a missing person for $50,000, which is something no one cared and should be ignored forever.

It's still watchable but the running time was so long I almost fell asleep.

Wings of Desire is a film about angels who provide comfort to people in need, one angel falls in love with a trapeze artist became determined to be mortal in order to experience happiness on earth with his new found lover. I love the aerial shots and the use of black and white shots to show the contrast of earth and heaven. The dialogue were beautiful and the theme was nicely done to show the joy of living our lives. However the film may be a bit too lengthy, which could be condensed for better effect.

Mockingjay Part 1 proves to be an excellent film with stunning performance and complex plot. The political subtext was way better played than the book, making it an important piece of gem to show the problems with both fascism and communism.
