Movie Review - Inside Out

, ,
Salam and Hi!

I have always wondered what is going on inside my body or head whenever I do or feel something. So, I was very excited when I knew the movie Inside Out is coming to our cinemas soon. Thanks to Walt Disney Studio Malaysia and Nuffnang for the exclusive passes to the Premiere Screening of Inside Out and the free merchandise!

This movie is about the five main emotions in an 11-year-old girl's mind. The emotions which are joy, sadness, fear, disgust and anger work hard together in the headquarters to navigate Riley's mind to stay happy always. 

However, their true challenge begins when Riley and her parents relocate to a new city which lacks many things. They are all eager to help Riley go through her difficult transition. It their attempt, something goes wrong, leading Joy and Sadness with all the core memories to fall out of the headquarters into the far reaches of Riley's mind. Hence, Fear, Disgust and Anger are left to take charge of Riley's mind.

Many horrible things happen while Joy and Sadness find their way back to the headquarters. One by one, Riley's personality islands (Goofy, Friendship, Honesty and Family) which connects to the core memories break and perish. But being Joy, she is always positive and optimist that they will be able to correct the situation in Riley's mind.

Joy and Sadness meet many characters, including Bing Bong, Riley's childhood imaginary friend who venture with them through many interesting places and situations on their way back to the headquarters, till Joy and Bing Bong fall into a deep dark pit known as the Memory Dump. This is where old, faded and no longer useful memories are being dumped and will eventually dissapear if completely forgotten.

When both of them trapped in the Memory Dump, all hopes seemed lost. Then, Joy started to realize that all the memories created by Sadness not only make Riley cry, but also signal others for help. Realizing the importance of Sadness' role in Riley's life, they work hard to get back to the headquarters and correct the situation in Riley's life.

It is a good, interesting and imaginative movie with lessons to tell. All the emotions play important roles in our daily lives, not only the good emotions. Emotions create a balance and colorful life. However, we need to learn how to control our emotions because uncontrolled emotions may lead to horrible and regretful memories in our lives. Also, we must always be positive and optimist in facing challenges and resolving problems. Sometimes, we need others, especially family and friends to go through a beautiful life.

Overall, I really enjoyed the movie. It was awesome and the characters are very cute. I could feel all the emotions in myself interact while watching the movie. I don't mind watching it again. Highly recommended! By the way, it will start showing in cinemas on 20 August 2015. Don't miss it! Thanks again to Walt Disney Studio Malaysia and Nuffnang for the movie passes and merchandise =)

Till next post, thank you.
