100 Word Review – Sisters (2015)

Amy Poehler (Inside Out, Mean Girls) and Tine Fey (Megamind, Mean Girls) reunite with writer Paula Pell (Saturday Night Live) in this wonderful and ridiculous comedy.

Two sisters (Poehler and Fey) attempt to recreate their youth by throwing the ultimate house party. The problem is they aren’t as young as they used to be, and neither are their friends.

The cast is full of “O it’s that guy from that thing” faces which makes the whole film feel like you’re watching a group of friends have a great time. Not the world’s greatest comedy, but certainly good for a laugh.

100 Word Review – Inside Out (2015)

I cry at every Pixar film, so let’s take that as a given.

Inside Out follows Riley (Kaitlyn Dias) from the unique perspective of her governing emotions, as she moves to San Francisco for her dad’s work. Meet Joy (Amy Poehler), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Disgust (Mindy Kaling), Fear (Bill Hader) and Anger (Lewis Black).

Despite a couple of moments where they chose the easy stereotype, Pixar are on top form. Pete Doctor (Up, Monsters Inc) and Ronaldo Del Carmen (Ratatouille, Brave) wrote and directed it. It’s already #48 on IMDb’s Top 250.

No wonder I laughed, cried and felt all warm inside.
