Sure, reviewing Disney films are a little out of character for me, but I love more than just cheesy horror movies and weird science fiction, ya know? Plus, I’d consider this to be firmly planted in the fantasy genre. Or at least, it’s the magical realism/mundane fantastic that Disney has become well known for.
No matter, 2015 marks the return of the big Pixar summer movie once more. While they’ve given anthropomorphic life to bugs, toys, and even the very monsters we dream of, this time Pixar tackles something a little bit different. By that I mean, bringing life to the very metaphysical itself. More specifically, feelings. The story focuses inside of the head of an 11 year old girl named Riley, on the move from some unnamed suburbia in Minnesota to San Francisco. As a departure from what we’re used to, this film is a slice of life with just a hint of Disney fantasy to add a touch of whimsy. Plus, after a lackluster series of trailers (including an upcoming Disney project that looks like it took the safe route), this film was quite the delightful change of pace.
