I can see what you mean there, one thing I thought was severely lacking from Inside Out was innovation in terms of the visuals. A lot of people have come out and said that Inside Out is a return to form and are now slamming Brave, but I thought that Brave is one of the most natural films they’ve made, while Inside Out felt quite forced, like another studio’s idea of what Pixar film are but with Pixar’s top quality production. For me, the landscapes in Brave were really breathtaking, and they nailed the character’s clothes, the buildings, the animals, the supernatural element, I saw it as a big step forward. Then Brave got a bit of lukewarm reaction. Inside Out’s setting was too off-the-wall for me, I really didn’t warm to the inside of Riley’s head, it all felt arbitrarily wacky, with little spark. I absolutely loved the trailer, and had hoped that the film would be much more focused on the different people’s numbskulls interspersed into the human character’s interactions, like that dinner table scene. When they started setting up this whole universe of how they run Riley, it felt stretched way too thin.
