Disney’s Pixar’s
Inside Out

Born in the 21th century, I was blessed enough to grow up in the luxury that is modern animation in entertainment. I remember the first animated movie I saw was DreamWorks’ Prince of Egypt. From then on, my fascination over animation and cartoons ran like water. I was five years-old when my mother let me watch my first Pixar film which was “Toy Story”. From that moment on, Pixar never failed to fascinate me. Last Wednesday, cinemas nationwide premiered Pixar’s latest work, Inside Out. I already saw the movie trailer before I went to watch the movie itself. The movie teaser was very intriguing. In the 4 minute video, they showcased all of their classic movies and the emotions that they threw towards the audience. After the memory montage, they introduced five characters each symbolizing the five root emotions of man; Joy; shown as a yellow figure that resembles the shape of a star, Sadness; shown as a blue character that resembles the shape of a tear-drop, Anger; the red fellow in the shape of a box, Fear; the purple figure that resembles the shape of a question-mark & Disgust; shown as a green character that resembles the shape of a broccoli. The plot of the story was as simple as it was intricate. It was about the struggle of a young girl, named Riley Andersen, as her emotions meet a dilemma that almost dealt her her biggest disaster. The conflict started when Riley’s Family had to move to San Francisco. Riley, being just the young girl that she was, had to face mountains of adjustment to fit into the new life that she had to live. In her judgment, the big move to San Franco wasn’t so good of an idea. Their new house turned out to be disastrous evidenced by hellish stench…...

...2 fast 2 furious Review 2 fast 2 furious is one of the best car street racing movies to watch. The Miami police department has been tracking down a drug lord, Carter Verone, but cannot find any evidence to arrest him. The department has Monica Fuentes, an undercover agent, as Verone’s girlfriend. They need street racers in order to capture Verone, so they arrest the main actor Brian O’ Connell at the end of a street race and take him to the department. At the department, they give him the breakdown about Verone and try to assign him a partner. He does not like the partner they try to give him, so he decides to pick his own, Roman Pearce. Their main job is to work undercover and arrest Verone so that their records will get cleared and they can walk away as free men. I like this movie because of the great acting performed by the main actors and the cars. 2 fast 2 furious has great acting. Paul Walker and Tyree Gibson do an excellent job playing the parts of Brian O’ Connell and Roman Pearce. Brian, a former cop, plays a good role as an undercover cop. Roman on the other hand, plays the role of a thug. He is tattooed and dresses with baggy clothes. He uses a lot of slang and likes to use the word “bruh” a lot, which is a slang term for brother. He is a thug because he had to spend three years in jail. He blaims Brian for that and when he first sees him in the movie he punches him in the face out of anger and they begin to fight. As the movie goes on, the hate that he has for...

Inside Out

...Essay - Inside Out Inside Out is a short film from 1999 made by Tom and Charles Guard, also known as The Guard Brothers. This short film shows how opposites attract, but it also shows how a big chaotic city can make love difficult. In Inside Out the male character and the female character never really connect, they never really talk or touch each other. They never meet, because they are separated by the fashion shop's window. The window is like a barrier. Still they kind of have an instant "connection", like eye contact. When the man sees the woman he lights up, becomes energetic and he seeks her attention, he tries to act funny. The complete opposite of what he was before, a frustrated man, because no one would sign his papers, they just ignored him and walked on by. The woman is entertained by him, but she is also very shy and she tries to hide behind some mannequins. Though this could also be flirting, because she is alternately hiding, coming out, hiding again etc. This shows their differences. Two opposites meet and attract. At the end of the short film it shows that the attraction is not strong enough. The city forces them to go their separate ways. A city which is very chaotic and not to mention, big. The cinematic techniques amplify the chaos in the city, for example: There is a lot of short takes and close ups on peoples feet which shows that the citizens are always on the move. There is also hand-held camera and this certainly gives the idea of action and......

"Inside Job" Review of a Movie

...INSIDE JOB This movie is definitely explores to us what happened in 2008 – the huge financial crisis,which at a cost over $20 trillion, caused millions people to lose their jobs and homes in the worst recession since the Great Depression and almost resulted in a global financial collapse. Since this film is a documentary the ideas are mainly developed through interviews with the wall street financial elite, economists, government officials, financial consumers .The reason for that is to demonstrate objectively real data, materials, to give and prove the audience reasons for the crisis back in 2008.But besides all of that it also shows what should we be aware of and what can actually lead to a present crisis in our days. The film is really worth watching, because it presents to us very the harsh reality- financial industry,gives us a clear view of complicated financial structure especially in the US. Virtually, it implies the domino effect generated by political system, bachelors, and all society in the whole financial system. Therefore, the documentary is called Inside Job which exposures all inside works in this deep and intricate economic circle. There are five parts---how we got here, the bubble, the crisis, accountability and where we are now--- all of them describe the causes that made the financial crisis happened, and why.

Inside Job - Review

...ADMAP REVIEW OF THE MOVIE – INSIDE JOB Rohan Rambhia | PGP-10-155 Inside Job is an exemplary recount of how administrator’s role when exploited to form risky administrative strategies by means of faulty processes lead to a crisis of the stature of the recession of 2008. It is a comprehensive documentary which narrates the history of the collapse, not only going into great, informative depth about the risk-based strategies that put the global economy on the line, but looks back to the rise of the financial industry. The biggest question which the documentary arouses is that knowing what happened, why are the miscreants not being punished? As the director, Charles Ferguson, himself stated while receiving the Oscar, “Forgive me, I must start by pointing out that three years after our horrific financial crisis caused by massive fraud, not a single financial executive has gone to jail, and that's wrong.”1 Lets us first look at the prelude (context) of this financial crisis: ADMAP REVIEW OF THE MOVIE – INSIDE JOB The Clinton era (1990s) worked as a bridge between the Wall Street and the government. More and more Wall Street CEOs gained access to the government, taking up administrative positions like 2 • Robert Rubin On Wall Street: Chairman and COO of Goldman Sachs For the Government: Secretary of Treasury under Bill Clinton Laura Tyson On Wall Street: Board director of Stanley Morgan For the government: Chair of the US President's Council of Economic Advisers......

...REVIEW ON THE DARK KNIGHT RISES The Dark Knight Rises(New York , July 16, 2012) is a superhero film directed by Christopher Nolan. It is the sequel to The Dark Knight (2008).The film introduces two main characters to Nolan's series: Selina Kyle (Anne Hathaway) and Bane (Tom Hardy). It has been eight years since Batman vanished into the night, turning, in that instant, from hero to fugitive. Assuming the blame for the death of D.A. Harvey Dent, the Dark Knight sacrificed everything for what he and Commissioner Gordon both hoped was the greater good. For a time the lie worked, as criminal activity in Gotham City was crushed under the weight of the anti-crime Dent Act. But everything will change with the arrival of a cunning cat burglar with a mysterious agenda. Far more dangerous, however, is the emergence of Bane, a masked terrorist whose ruthless plans for Gotham drive Bruce out of his self-imposed exile. But even if he dons the cape and cowl again, Batman may be no match for Bane. Making of The Dark Night Rises seems very excellent, because it is focused on nice editing style, camera focusing, attractive environment & technology. I enjoy every scene and it attracts me a lot. In this movie director hasn’t give any extra power to the hero. He uses his technological power to attain his mission. Christian Bale can perform his shooting excellently. He played the role of Batman perfectly. It mainly entertains me by its main theme & script writing. I find......

Inside Out

...The movie Inside Out showed the inner workings of a girl’s (Riley’s) mind. The writer/s packaged the movie in such a way that it would show the audience how and why a person acts in a certain manner in such an entertaining way. It used whimsical representations showing how the brain receives, processes, and lets out responses, how memories fade, and how humans develop our personalities. Expressing Riley’s consciousness are five characters, which determine her actions and thoughts: Joy, Sadness, Anger, Disgust, and Fear. These five characters are embodiments of five emotions voicing the complex workings of the human brain. It was, for me, one of the best movies Disney Pixel has ever created. There have been, however, reactions from neuroscientists regarding the metaphors or representations used in the movie. The movie according to them, though cute and entertaining, was not a neurology lesson and some important elements of the functions of the human brain were misplaced, if not missing. Hence, I am going to try and discuss the comments of some neuroscientists regarding the representations used in the movie. First is the control panel being the center of commands. There does not seem to be a control panel similar to that of the movie in the actual human brain. The consciousness, however, does not reside on a single command center but rather distributed, with each part of the brain contributing its little bit. The nearest thing the human brain has to a command center...

Loving Yourself Inside and Out

...Jamie McDowell October 27, 2015 “Loving yourself inside and out” Maleeka Madison, an eleven year old, in the seventh grade was having problems with students making fun of her. Not being appealing enough to her peers with very dark skin and homemade clothes was the start of her troubles. Very smart, however, being made fun of distracted her from her work. Other’s words helped develop her insecurities and low self-esteem which made her not see anything good about herself. Often feeling alone when with people, she was isolated to herself. The detachment of her favorite person in the world, her father, was the worst of all her problems. The person who was always there, always ready to talk, and always checking up on her: Gone! Do you know who Maleeka reminds me of? She reminds me of myself. Getting called ugly by my peers, although not because of my facial features, but because of my attire and the fact my hair was never done was the start of me being a target by other students in the poor, urban middle school I went to; only having one floor and two long hallways. Always wearing two matted puffy pony tails classified me as ugly. Now don’t get me wrong I didn’t always get defensive nor did I get upset, some of things said were funny. Bullying at times could be exaggerated, although there were serious bulling situations. Nevertheless, not always a person is trying to hurt you by telling you what you look like or how they feel about you. However, in Main Street Middle......

Am I Inside the Movie?

...Anh Le COM 100 Dr. Bill Withers 12/08/15 Am I inside the Movie? Many legacy-media forms, which cannot follow the evolution of the society trend and culture, start to fail claiming the audience attention. However, film is a reflection of society for both the present and the past. I believe film and its innovation have to catch up to society but sometimes it leads the society and culture too. That why in the future, “the theaters of the future will be bigger and more beautiful than ever before. They will employ expensive presentation formats that cannot be accessed or reproduced in the home (such as, ironically, film prints). And they will still enjoy exclusivity, as studios relearn the tremendous economic value of the staggered release of their products”, said Christopher Nolan, the director of the "Dark Knight" trilogy, "Inception," and "Interstellar.”(Nolan) In the past, the disadvantage of technology make the film industry cost a lot of money to produce film. In 1981, Thomas Edison, an inventor, created a device called the Kinetoscope which change the course of media history; this invention started a new era of Film industry. However, it took nine years to make the first film called “A Trip to the Moon” was made by a French filmmaker named Georges Mésliès. Also in 1915, another major motion picture was produced by a writer, actor, and camera operator, D.W. Griffith and an Edison Company camera operator Edwin S. Porter; this film was called “The Birth of a Nation”.......

They overcome these situations after a long period of time through tough situations and countless meetings of the British Government and Nelson Mandela. 2.

This is what triggered them to revolt and fight for their rights. This social problem started small from opinions in neighborhood to group organizations. They wanted to overthrow the government and fight for their rights. 3. Define the meaning of social movement and social change by citing scenes in the movie.

Inside Job- Review

...“Inside Job” Movie review -Deepshikha Dubey SYBCOM (Hons) Roll number-1071 ‘I nside job’ true to its title, is an exasperating documentary about the actual causes and consequences of the financial crisis of 2008. Directed by Charles Ferguson and narrated by Matt Damon, the movie is not a piece of muckraking or breathless support. It rests its infuriation on proper reason, research, figures and careful argument. Several interviews of eminent personalities from political, financial and academic backgrounds, along with news clips and aerial shots of New York, Iceland, London and other disaster areas — are all in there! Though dealing with a very complex issue, the movie has beautifully dealt with the topic and made it much easier for common man to understand the reason behind the nerve wrecking recent financial crisis that hit USA and then the world’s economy. The film is divided into five main parts, covering a wide scope- Who, what, when, why, how… it is all answered! Unlike most other documentaries that have been released over the past several years, ‘inside job’ bases its arguments on numbers and facts and doesn't just emotions. The first part of the movie- “How we got here?” Takes the viewers back to history in the 1930s when US had a strong financial system. The regular banks were local businesses and were not allowed to mess around with the depositor’s money. The investment banks were private partnerships and thus did not make risky......
