Inside Out


Pixar prove their mastery of the form by anthropomorphising emotional states in order to describe the existential crisis of a pre-teen girl leaving her childhood behind. Primary coloured, funny, touching and deeply profound all at the same time.



  1. One of the finest animated films ever made.

    1. AKA an idiots guide to anthropomorphism.

      They really had to stretch the last couple to make them fit, the dog is just a supporting character and Scotland is where a film is set. Pixar anthropomorphised bears in that one, not a country.

    2. I like "superheroes have feelings", like no other superhero has feelings. Batman didn't give two tits when his folks died. And Up and Brave are about people so the anthropomorphism really isn't relevant.

      A far more accurate short history of Pixar is...
      What if we made an odd couple/buddy comedy (usually a road movie) with Toys/Bugs/Monsters/Fish/(Shit,The Incredibles doesn't follow the Pixar formula so we'll say)Family/Cars/A rat and a man/Robots/An old man and a boy/A daughter and mother-bear/Emotions.
