Toni’s Tuesday Movie Review Preview

30 Jun

“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.” ― Albert Einstein


As an artist, I genuinely appreciate creativity and imagination. So, yesterday, when Joe, Lindsay, and I went to see the new Pixar movie, ” Inside Out,” I was thouroughly entertained. I can’t remember the last time I saw an animated movie. 

I loved the way the animated characters / emotions inside Riley ‘s head were located in her brain’s control room, and all her memories and feelings were stored there. 

It was funny, sad, creative and colorful. BUT, I must admit, it was a little too sophisticated for younger children. There were some seriously sad and scary parts mixed in with the funny ones. I asked Lindsay, who teaches 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades, what age group would understand the concept. She thought probably no younger than 8 or 9 years old. I’m in my  60’s, and I probably didn’t get all the subtle nuisances.  


I liked it enough that I’d see it again when it comes to cable or DVD , mostly to see what went over my head the first time. 

I’ll give it 3 1/2 stars out of 5… but I’m pretty hard to please.
