Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it's no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions - Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness. The emotions live in Headquarters, the control centre inside Riley's mind, where they help get her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley's main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions fight on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.
After a lot long wait (for me, since Toy Story 3) we got another awesome Pixar movie. The story is really, really good. I can easily say that this movie is for both, parents and children. For parents because it has somethings that kids won't understand, like growing up and the problems that come with it, but also genuinely funny moments.
The voice actors did great. Amy Poehler (Joy), Phyllis Smith (Sadness), Bill Hader (Fear) and Lewis Black (Anger). They were just perfect and I cant picture anyone else doing them so well. Sound effects are good as well, specifically the noises of her memories entering the brain. Animations are just so gorgeous to look at. Pete Docter did a great job as writer and director. He is one of the best directors and writers for animated movies. He wrote Monsters Inc., Toy Story and Wall-e. These are some of my childhood favourites.
Well, this movie is great. I love seeing new Disney movies, even at this age as I get a certain sense of nostalgia. But this one was genuinely enjoyable and my parents loved it too. The best Pixar movie in a very long time.
