Reel Review: Inside Out.

08.20.2015 – “Inside Out” has been long overdue to be shown in the Philippines, and there has been a lot of good news about this feature animated film. It has been released two month ago and Australia was one of the few to have it in June.

The last country who’ll probably see this one is China set to be shown on October 1st. But regardless of the screen date those who have first seen it have given their thoughts how the film has success despite the challenges regarding the complex narrative.

There is something intriguing how they developed this feature animated film with co-directors Pete Docter and Ronnie del Carmen. It has been a long time since Disney and Pixar has developed an original feature film. Most of the new ones being developed to be released soon are sequels.

Lava does it first

Before heading out directly to the featured film Disney and Pixar always have something for the viewers to enjoy. To pair up with Inside Out they have “Lava” a computer-animated short film that premiered in Hiroshima International Animation Festival in Japan on June 14, 2014.

Rarely do I appreciate an animation short, but with a musical theme this one is cute. Not trying to be overly impressive but “Lava” wasn’t entirely noticed by those who have reviewed it but overall I like it.

Outside is in

When you see it from the start of the film the complicated and challenging narrative is there where you wonder how this would appeal to the younger audience. There has been questions that has been there since they started running the teaser and revealing the final trailer before its theatrical release.

For those who have been following all of Pixar’s film releases this is the only one that they made that so good that it delivers in dealing with emotions represented in a way kids would definitely understand.

Six Year Pay-Off

Originally being developed since 2009 “Inside Out” was not an easy sell when they where putting this together, while “UP” was being shown in that year where Pete Docter was also the director of the said feature. But for “Inside Out” he has extra hands with Ronnie del Carmen as his co-director.

Now “Inside Out” is out grossing its predecessors which certainly was impressive both in story and visuals. There’s nothing more I can say but this deserves to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture.

Inside Out” was about challenges in how it was developed and finding its resolve in the narrative while delivering colourful visuals. The fans can’t wait for the home release since Riley is growing up heading on her first date.

The film is NOW SHOWING in Philippine cinema nationwide from Walt Disney Pictures distributed locally by Columbia Pictures Philippines.

RATED: 4 out of 5 Stars
