I found it bizarre. Yet grownups cried over it.

Am I numb? I didn't cry at Bambi but AI had me distraught.

The lava short was just odd IMO.

It made my ears bleed

I hated the lava short!! It went on for too long and the song was shite grin

I keep getting the tune in my head very annoying

Massive discrepancy lookswise between the haggard man volcano and the beautiful lady volcano. I did quite like it though otherwise.

aww I enjoyed it ..didn't cry mind

I quite enjoyed it but I seem desperately against the grain in MN these days

Totally bonkers but I quite liked it. It could have been a little shorter maybe?

I cried at Inside Out. It was the part where the elephant jumps out of the rocket so Joy can get out of the pile of forgotten memories. In fact, we're going to see it again so I'll probably cry some more!

Thankfully I've forgotten the song.

I also found it very annoying. Didn't realise that Pixar usually do shorts and thought it was part of the main film. Wondered what I'd let myself in for. YY Frances, it wound me up that the female volcano was young and pretty and the male was basically an old man.

it was awful

and that lover/lava pun?


11yo turned to me with a WTF?? look

MuddhaOfSuburbia Fri 14-Aug-15 23:39:29

I greeted loads in the film, tho

not one to see when you have a sad child

It doesn't even rhyme.

I cried buckets over Inside Out. We moved and DS hasn't made any friends yet. He told his older sister that he wished there was an Inside Out character called Loneliness. I cried even more when I heard that.

I quite liked it, other than it's geological inaccuracies. That's not how island chains work, the old one doesn't just become un-extinct!

The film itself, I only didn't blub as I was staying strong for the DCs, one of whom was ready to leave, he was so scared. I moved when I was 14 and have a lot of sadness from then.

I cried, and I'm not ashamed to admit it grin

You just have to suspend disbelief a bit (after all, is a volcano can sing, why not unextinct itself?). And he looked like a nice volcano, who deserved a bit of love. Hope springs eternal...

I haven't seen this one yet, but the 'Feast' short that showed before Big Hero Six was horrible too.

HeartsTrumpDiamonds Sat 15-Aug-15 00:43:00

It rhymes in an American accent.

We all really liked it & have watched it on YouTube and sung along several times since.

I love shorts at the beginning of films - they are like lovely little unexpected amuses bouches for your eyes and ears.

The Lava short annoyed me, it went on for so long I thought it was the film at one point! I did shed a little tear at Inside Out though. The part with the imaginary friend made me think about my kids growing up and I don't want them too! (Sometimes). grin

Yes I guess it was a singing cartoon volcano so it doesn't necessarily have to follow traditional tectonic activity.

thanks to this thread me and my dds discussed this today- we'd forgotten it

we've been singing it ALL DAY


it's catchier on the second listen

Is Inside Out worth seeing as an adult? I love a good cry at the movies!
