INSIDE OUT (Theatrical Release USA 2015)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì

Inside Out
—unusual story format—plays its scenes well; but it is not the best in its class. The movie seems to end bluntly as if it runs out of storyline. As a Pixar animation, children may like the brightly colored characters but may dis-appreciate the storyline which comes off as a psychological analysis rather than entertainment. The story has a serious mindset which does not lend itself much to laughter.
