Inside Out Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack Directors: Pete Docter and Ronnie Del Carmen Screenwriters: Pete Docter, Meg LeFauve, Josh Cooley Cast: Amy Poehler, Phyllis Smith, Mindy Kaling, Bill Hader, Lewis Black, Richard Kind Music: Michael Giacchino Walt Disney Home Entertainment Release date: November 3, 2015
The widely successful Inside Out has finally hit DVD/Blu-ray. Recent Pixar fare has not been a true reflection of the poignant emotions you would normally feel while watching films about toys, seniors who go out on one last adventure, clown fish, and tiny robots. So it seems fitting that Pixar’s latest film brings that poignancy home by focusing on the emotions that drive us: Joy, Sadness, Disgust, Anger, and Fear. We all have these emotions, which makes the film that much more relatable – there are arguments that there are different numbers of emotions, but for narrative sake, directors Pete Docter and Ronnie Del Carmen focused on these five.

I grew up in Brooklyn, New York, in a family that ritualistically watched ABC’s World News Tonight with Peter Jennings. I loved history and journalism, and ended up teaching high school level history. The calming, straight forward, no nonsense, nonpartisan news days have long since passed. With the advent and expansion of cable news, and the big money filing in, it’s incredibly difficult to find real, genuine news. As channels like Fox News went over-the-top conservative, stations like MSNBC had to hit back equally to the left. 16 years ago a phoenix rose over the garbage heap of the phony “real” news and gave us the greatest fake news show ever. 16 years after taking over for Craig Kilborn, Jon Stewart left The Daily Show last night, in perfect circumstances… as the Republicans were holding their first Presidential debates on Fox News.
Four years ago at D23 Expo 2011, Pixar announced what would be its 15th feature film: Inside Out. Two years later came news of the cast and the respective characters. The first time I witnessed early footage I experienced a mix of hope and hilarity. After what has felt like an endless wait, the movie is finally out. Disney”¢Pixar has developed a gift, a film that sensibly pushes the limits of animation and stretches what our brains can comprehend in a comfortable, if not “mind-blowing” hour-and-a-half format.
Let’s examine Inside Out, in terms of what it is composed of and what this movie can mean for the future of the studio.

Ever look at someone and wonder what’s going on inside their head? Directed by Pete Docter (Up, Monsters, Inc.) and Ronnie Del Carmen, Inside Out journeys into the mind to find out.
Based in Headquarters, the control center inside 11-year old Riley’s mind, the Emotions are hard at work. Joy (Amy Poehler) is a silly sprite whose mission is to make sure Riley stays happy. Fear (Bill Hader) keeps Riley safe, and Anger (Lewis Black) ensures all is fair. Disgust (Mindy Kaling) prevents Riley from getting poisoned and protects her from gross stuff like broccoli, while Sadness (Phyllis Smith) isn’t sure what her role in Riley’s life is – she tries to stay out of the way as much as possible.
