Review of Inside Out
Ever since I was a child, I have seen so many animation movies. Among them, Inside out is by far the best one in my mind because it has cultivated me to grow up by three important life lessons, including the belief I should hold, the way of things I should perceive, and the level of thinking I should reach.
First of all, believing in myself is what the movie has taught me. When one of the leading characters, Joy, tried every possible ways to put the core memories back to the Headquarter, I can sense the spirit of perseverance throughout the film. In this modern society, challenges as well as obstacles are everywhere, and frustrations are inevitable. Therefore, a firm belief should be held because well goes an old saying, “Where there is a will, there is a way”.
Perceiving things differently is the second thing that the movie has taught me as well. The moment Joy took Sadness’s hand to touch the console, and finally extracted the idea of emptiness, Riley reunited with her family. Then, a joy-sadness coexisting core memory was created. This demonstrates the fact that every coin has two sides. In addition, permanently immersing in the innocent happiness in the past will result in the incompetence in the reality. As for me, it is the realization that I am getting to understand the meaning of life and accept whatever I may come across in the future.
Reaching to a higher level of thinking is the third lesson I have learned from the film. Aging does not equal to becoming more mature, but the level of thinking defines the maturity. In the film, old islands of emotional attachments were destroyed, while new ones were constructed. This shows that the transformation in the presence lies in the foundation of the experiences learned in the past. Furthermore, in the end of the movie, the new console was constructed, suggesting that there exist potentials of various emotions toward events in life. More importantly, this also suggests that the several uncertainties should be recognized, and considered that they all play essential roles in the future success.
To conclude, after watching the film, three important lessons in the process of growth have been learned. Besides, it is amazing to see that emotions are conceptualized by many vivid and colorful characters. Although some scenes that make me laugh my head off, there are scenes that have deeply moved me. On the whole, this film is not only original but also inspirational, and it suits people at all ages.
