'Inside Out' Is The Best Pixar Movie, Not 'Toy Story'

I bet if you're anywhere north of 28-years-old reading this, the headline alone is enough to make you furious; seething with rage. But I'd ask you to please keep an open mind.

This may be hard to hear, but you're hanging on to Toy Story for the nostalgia, and that's a fact. Search your feelings, and you'll see that Inside Out is the best Pixar movie ever made.

You might not want to admit it, but *Toy Story* is actually pretty boring.

Toy Story plays out exactly like a Quentin Tarantino movie: it's 90% build-up and 10% action.

Sure, watching Buzz and Woody fly through the air while strapped to a rocket was fun, but most of the movie boils down to Woody sulking in the corner of Andy's room.

On the other hand, *Inside Out* is easily one of the most ambitious and exciting films in the Pixar canon.

Inside Out is an hour and forty minutes of pure unfiltered imagination; an illustrious metaphor for human interaction.

Unlike its contemporaries, Inside Out isn't limited by the constraints of time, space, or even reality. The writers aren't just making a movie, they're building worlds.

*Inside Out* has Bing Bong.

Come on, you know it's true. Bing Bong is the greatest Pixar character of all time, his tears are candy for goodness sake!

He also happens to have the greatest death scene in the Pixar universe, bar none.

It's also the only Pixar movie that doesn't take place in a fantasy world.

Toy Story takes place in a universe where toys can talk. Monsters Inc. revolves around a society of monsters that harvest the screams of children.

What happens in Reilly's head isn't fake. Rather, it's an allegory of her real-world perceptions.

It teaches kids (and adults) that it's OK to feel 'negative emotions.'

You can't be happy all the time. It's OK to be angry — it's alright to feel sad. These are the principle themes that are integral to the plot of Inside Out.

The film expertly conveys that there are no 'negative emotions,' and that emotional wellbeing is all about balance.

The voice acting features strong, commanding, and hilarious female leads.

Inside Out is really a lowkey reunion of classic Greg Daniels characters. You've got Amy Poehler and Rashida Jones from Parks and Rec, as well as Mindy Kaling and Phyllis Smith from The Office.

It would be impossible for this movie not to be hilarious.

On that note, *Inside Out* is one of the only Pixar films to feature a female lead.

For years, Disney and Pixar have by and large ignored women, reducing them to either evil villains or damsels in distress.

Inside Out brings a new voice and a fresh perspective to the table, for the first time in decades.
