Inside Out Is Pixar at Its Best!

Disney•Pixar's "Inside Out" takes us to the most extraordinary location yet - inside the mind of Riley. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions - Anger (voiced by Lewis Black), Disgust (voiced by Mindy Kaling), Joy (voiced by Amy Poehler), Fear (voiced by Bill Hader) and Sadness (voiced by Phyllis Smith). The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley's mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. Directed by Pete Docter and produced by Jonas Rivera, "Inside Out" is in theaters June 19, 2015.

After commercial hits like Cars, Cars 2, and Monsters University – which did not yield unwavering critical acclaim – it is wonderful to note that Inside Out is a multi-layered, exquisitely rendered film that ranks right up there with WALL-E and UP.

The idea for Inside Out is that we are looking at a year in the life of eleven-year old Riley (voiced by Kaitlyn Dias) as seen from inside her mind, where her emotions take on somewhat familiar forms and interact like any group of friends – with love but also  lots of ups and downs.

HBO’s Cinema Verite Chronicles the Inadvertent Birth of Reality TV!

Cinema Verite

Way back in the olden days of 1973 [I know!] PBS picked up a series that dealt with the lives of an American family – the bluntly titled An American Family. The twelve-hour documentary series catapulted the Loud family to national prominence – and millions watched as the family promptly disintegrated before their eyes.

HBO’s Cinema Verite [tonight, 9/8C] is the behind-the-scenes story of the making of ‘An American Family’ – the first real reality TV series, and the probably the last to be truly real. Check out the trailer following the jump.

Secretariat Is A Winner – But Not By 31 Lengths!

secretariat

After giving us unmitigated pap like You Again, it’s nice to see a genuinely good live action movie from Disney. Secretariat is smart, has heart and manages to make historic events suspenseful – not the easiest trick to pull off.

Sure, when the film is away from the track it gets a little overwrought. Sure the score is a hair too insistent at times. Underneath that, however, is solid spine – the story of a housewife who parlays a lost coin toss into the last Triple Crown winner in racing history. And not just a Triple Crown winner, but a completely dominant one – winning the Belmont Stakes, the last leg of racing’s Triple Crown, by thirty-one lengths!
