I’m going to keep this short; Inside Out is one of the best movies I’ve ever seen, period. There’s only ever been three animated motion pictures nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars, those are Beauty and the Beast (1991), Up (2009) and Toy Story 3 (2010), and in my opinion Inside Out could possibly be the fourth depending on the quality of other movies coming out this year. No, I’m not talking about Best Animated Picture I am strictly saying it should be included in the biggest award at the Oscars, Best Picture.
Now this is a difficult subject to speak on because we are only half-way through the year and still have hundreds of movies coming out with all the award-contenders releasing near the end of the year. But I’m going to be shocked if there are ten movies (the amount of possible nominations for Best Picture) that are better than Inside Out, if that happens then it will be the best year in movies all-time. That being said, I don’t think there will be many movies, if any, that are better than Inside Out
for the rest 2015.
I didn’t review Inside Out for our site but Gio did and you can check out that review here (Inside Out Review). I’ve seen this movie twice already and after the second viewing is when I realized how genius it actually is. There were so many things I missed the first time around that I caught the second time and I think multiple viewings are necessary to completely enjoy this movie and take it all in. Everything from the message/theme ,the voice acting, the drama, the comedy, the action, the dialogue, the story and even the score (music) are all absolutely incredible in Inside Out! It is truly a movie that both children and adults can enjoy. It’s a movie that keeps you thinking about it days after you’ve seen it and you start to apply aspects of the movie to your own life. This is one of the reasons the movie is so great because it connects with humans and their emotions on a level that no other movie that I’ve seen can.
I think and hope that Inside Out will get some Oscar attention come award season (usually November- February), it’s a no-brainer for Best Animated Picture but I’m talking about getting nominated for Best Picture! I honestly believe it has a chance and who knows, maybe even a shot at winning! I’m not sure if Academy voters will connect with this movie enough to give it that push it needs at the Oscars but they would be fools not to at least consider voting for it. I personally love this movie and it’s my third favorite of the year so far (behind Ex Machina and Avengers: Age of Ultron) but I will admit it might be a better movie overall than my top two favorites. If I did review Inside Out it would be the closest thing to getting a 10 out of 10 but it’s not quite perfect (with a little laziness in the third act) so I will give Inside Out a 9.5 out of 10. It’s almost perfect!
Have you seen Inside Out? If so, what did you think of the movie? Am I giving it too much praise? Let us know in the comment section.
