Sadness :( Joy :) Fear :O Anger >:( Disgust D: Inside Out. You’ve heard it’s playing in theatres, and you’ve heard people say good things about it. But what’s really going on there, beneath the surface? You’d better like that question, because the movie is all about Emotions, colorful animation, cute, feely moments…but ultimately Emotions. […]
