Bridge of Spies

DISCLAIMER – MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS : I finish my Oscar Best Picture binge with Bridge of Spies.  Mark Rylance, my top candidate for Best Supporting Actor, really stole the spotlight (see what I did there?).  I would like to give best picture to Bridge of Spies because of the messages that the movie had.

Inside Out

DISCLAIMER - WATCH THE MOVIE FIRST : I love Pixar films.  Even before trailers came out for Inside Out I was in.  The interpretation and exploration of the human mind was astounding; I dare say that Inside Out is Pixar's most authentic and visionary idea. Our story is set in San Francisco; which is where Pixar started.  Many stories that are "created" by writers are through personal experiences, and I don't think Inside Out is any different.  In the documentary The Pixar Story, John Lasseter mentions, when working on Toy Story, that his absence at home was tough on his family.  I can't help but think that Riley's experiences correlate with the family…
