Movies! 6/19/15

Do you remember that show "Herman's Head" from the early 90s?  Yeah, me either except the chick who voices Lisa Simpson was in it.  Apparently someone at Pixar watched that show because they decided to remake it as an animated movie called "Inside Out."

So there are like different emotions and they compete for control of a young girl.  And, um, mayhem ensues or something.  I'm destined to watch this for my niece's 3rd birthday at the end of the month.  I might have to sneak out to watch "Jurassic World" or something.

But this is Pixar (PIXAR!!!!!!) and there are no other kid movies for a few weeks so it will probably make a bunch of money.  Even if it is a rip-off of a crappy 90s sitcom on Fox.

The only other new thing really is "Dope" which takes place in the early 90s and is about a dorky black kid who becomes a drug mule or something.  It's not going to be a serious threat to a Pixar movie or "Jurassic World" but if it came in 3rd that would probably be considered really good.  Though I'd doubt it will make it that high.

  1. I used to love watching Herman's Head but it got weird in the later episodes because they tried to give the emotions their own storylines independent of Herman. They don't make sitcoms like that anymore. On the radio this morning they talked about how Pixar polled psychologists and got a list of up to 27 primary emotions and whittled it down to 5. They also said that there is no one with more emotional turmoil that a girl between 11 and 18, which is why the used that age. The certiainly put a lot of thought into it.

  2. Pixar usually has more unique ideas, so I wasn't that interested at first. However, it seems to be getting great reviews. There must be something good about it.
