My Inside Out Islands

Last night I watched Pixar’s Inside Out for the first time.

I know…shock, gasp, what? A self-proclaimed Disney lover such as myself? Here’s the thing, I always knew I’d love it. I just also knew I’d cry. It’s Pixar for pete’s sake. If you didn’t cry in Toy Story 3, Wall-E, Up or Inside Out then you basically have no soul. I mean, the trailer for The Good Dinosaur.. have you watched it? That thing is definitely going to require tissues. At this point they should just hand out boxes with your ticket purchase.
I don’t enjoy crying, so I didn’t see it in the theaters. There’s no logic behind it. Just my 5 emotions doing their thing.

Star Wars and Harry Potter

Before I write another word, Star Wars has always been and will always be my very favorite movies of all time. I know every line. And every time I watch any one of them my heart is immediately lightened. It’s nostalgia and joy and all manner of good things wrapped in a bow. Sort of the way you feel when you play with puppies. But with lighsabers thrown in. (Not thrown at the puppies. I hope that was clear!)

Now…I can confidentally say that Harry Potter is officially my second favorite set of movies. (LOTR is a very close third. Very close!) And let me just tell you why. I actually hadn’t seen either parts of The Deathly Hallows since they were in theaters.
And I just finished the whole series once again. Harry burdens my heart and makes me think. Harry presents simple concepts wrapped in riddles. Harry gives us Snape and Neville and Sirius and Luna. There is such a beauty in the series that just grabs my heart and holds on till the end. And each time I watch it I let myself forget all I know about it and I am taken on the ride all over again. And by the end I am knee deep in Kleenex every time.

Nothing can compare to Star Wars for me. It’s in a class all it’s own. Plus it has about 15 year of constant viewing on every other movie out there.But I truly believe nothing can quite compare to Harry Potter either. And that’s why it deserves second place on my favorite movies list. (Seriously…LOTR is really, really close behind!)
