For this year’s Oscar off-season, we are taking a look back on the 2015 film year which was right before Next Best Picture launched. We asked the NBP Film Community to vote on 5 films nominated for Best Picture and 5 films nominated for Oscars other than Best Picture from that year to be reviewed on the podcast, exclusively for our Patreon subscribers. We already reviewed “Brooklyn,” “Sicario,” “Ex Machina,” “Room,” “Spotlight,” and now, we are reviewing the Best Animated Feature winner of 2015: “Inside Out.”
One of Pixar’s most brilliant, creative and thoughtful ideas for a movie, if not ever, “Inside Out” stunned critics and audiences in 2015 with its imaginative production design, meta concept, excellent voice acting and more! How has it held up in the year’s since its release and how does it stack up against other Pixar movies which have come out before and after? We go into all of this and more as our trip through 2015 continues. Joining me for this 2015 retrospective review I have Josh Parham, Daniel Bayer, Casey Lee Clark, Tom O’Brien and Patreon supporter Ryan Fecskovics.
