An “Inside Out” Rant

I saw Pixar‘s “Inside Out” today.

Honestly, I feel like it could have been a whole lot better. It was the first Disney/Pixar movie I’ve ever watched, where I walked out of the theater thinking: “Well, this was okay. I should have just waited to see it on DVD”. That’s kind of a bummer.

I did like the art style, though, for the emotions. On close-ups of the emotions, especially of the ones who had hair, like Joy, Sadness, and Disgust, their hair seemed almost like it was drawn with a chalk-texture brush. I thought that was a really cool touch and a great way to add distinction.

What else….

Riley’s Joy is the only Joy in the movie who has a sort of glow around her all of the time. Mom and Dad’s Joy’s didn’t have this glow. I thought that was strange. Also, the emotions of Mom and Dad, looked similar to Mom and Dad, but Riley’s emotions looked nothing like her. Plus, Riley has a mix of male and female emotions, while Mom has all female emotions and Dad has all male emotions. What’s up with that? Does that mean Riley could be Bisexual later in life? Hm, that would be an interesting concept for Pixar to explore, but I doubt they would.

Actually, wouldn’t that be interesting if this little detail was developed further and Riley was Bisexual? Think of what that could open up. It could affect how the world views things, or it could seriously hurt Pixar. I like to think that people nowadays are more comfortable and accepting of this, but let’s face it, there are still those out there who have problems with people who are “differnt”. I think that’s such a shame. My viewpoint is that God put me on this earth to share and spread His love with everyone, no matter who they are. In the end, God is the Judge, not me.

Anyway, as I was saying, the movie was okay. I thought it could have been a lot better and I’m a bit disappointed. I got all hyped up from all of the great reviews and then I was completely let down. Like I said previously, that’s a bummer. Truly.

Look for my words again soon!

      I liked “Cars” better than “Cars 2” and definitely liked “Cars” better than “Inside Out”. I think “Inside Out” pars on the level just above “Cars 2” for me.

    Sorry that I leave behind an answer on this old blogpost.
    I dont think, Riley having different gendered emotions means, that she is bisexual.
    Rather that the creators just wanted it so.
    Maybe they will all become one gender after Riley goes through puperty or if one wants to go the route about sexuality…I’d rather think that she is bi-gender with tendency to female.

      Hey! Comment on old posts all the way! I always love going back and seeing replies. =) As for your viewpoint, I like it. I didn’t necessarily mean to say that Riley HAD to be bisexual, it was just a thought at the time that it was an interesting concept. Your idea of her being bi-gender, though, is awesome! That thought hadn’t even crossed my mind, lol! Thanks!
