    • Thanks Dan! It’s a quality movie for sure. Nowhere near the bottom of the barrel for Pixar but I do think it misses its target audience. Thanks for commenting!

  1. I just saw inside out and I was able to identify with Riley very much so. Last week – my parents moves my sisters and I across state to a new life. I had to leave my sport, my friends, my whole life, an it felt terrible. I left remembering that sadness is needed in order to feel joy, and it’s alright to be sad. “For when I am weak, then I am strong.” (2 Corinthians 12:10) My dad left to movie feeling guilty that he made us move as half of his daughters left the theatre crying.

    • That’s a terrific example of what I was talking about, Teresa. The movie is very real and it’s so close to home that you are just as likely to leave it feeling sad as you are feeling happy. That dichotomy between opposing feelings is very interesting however. Thanks for the comment!

  4. It’s nice to see a film that celebrates all the emotions, but still manages to be optimistic and uplifting. Inside Out is the full package 🙂
