‘Inside Out’ Review: One of Pixar’s Absolute Best

Rambling TV Queen

So I went into this new installment from Pixar expecting to cry buckets. After all, I was warned by friends and social media alike. But I still wasn’t prepared enough. Inside Out was absolutely fantastic, and is now high on my list of favorite Disney/Pixar movies. And I cried more than buckets. I cried wheelbarrows.

Once again, Pixar slayed my emotions. Just like the beautiful tragedy that was Up, this movie is an emotional terrorist disguised as a children’s animated film. DON’T BE FOOLED. I can tell you firsthand that kids will not understand this movie, or be entertained by it. It’s just way above their heads. There was a whole group of kids sitting in front of me in the theater, maybe 9 or 10 years old, and I didn’t hear one laugh out of them the whole movie. Not even when Anger blew his top. They just…

We started by watching all of the James Bond movies, for the purposes of ranking them for the blog. I brought him in because he was much more of a Bond expert than I was at the time, and I felt his perspective would liven things up. He would be the color commentator to my play-by-play man.

We soon discovered that, by watching the movies separately and then putting everything we said together in the same place, hilarity ensued. We each brought in our own observations, not knowing what the other would say, and then…

Kickstarting Common Sense

Aaron Bossig

I’m a big fan of Kickstarter and other crowdfunding services, but I think it’s time the internet started to enforce some real-world economics on the idea.  Yes, raising a five-figure sum to make potato salad is a great story, but that’s not a sustainable event.  Too many people see crowdfunding as an internet-powered money machine.  Here are some lessons Kickstarter wannabes have to learn, from a backer’s point of view:

  • If you’re making a product, my pledge should allow me to buy that product.  Asking me for $50 with the promise that one day, I’ll have the opportunity to give you even more money doesn’t fly.
  • Downloads are all well and good, but they will always inherently have less value than a physical item.  In money terms, CDs are worth more than mp3s, BluRays are worth more than mp4s, and books are worth more than PDFs.  You can run your…
