The 250, Episode #13 – Inside Out (#128)

Do you ever look at someone and wonder, “What is going on inside their head?”

Hosted by Andrew Quinn and Darren Mooney, The 250 is a fortnightly trip through some of the best (and worst) movies ever made, as voted for by Internet Movie Database Users. New episodes are released every second Saturday at 6pm GMT, with the occasional bonus episode between them.

This time, Pete Docter’s Inside Out.

Featuring the anthropomorphised personalities of five distinct emotions, Inside Out invites its audience to step inside the mind of an eleven year girl and see how it ticks. Riley has just moved across the country with her family as her father takes on a new job, forcing “Joy” to work overtime to maintain her sunny disposition. However, as “Sadness” begins to creep in around the edges, maintaining that optimism may prove a challenge.

At time of recording, it was ranked the 128th best movie of all time on the Internet Movie Database.
