    Number 5 Spoiler "Take her to the moon for me, okay?" 591 points, 32 lists directed by Pete Docter & Ronnie del Carmen | US | 2015 The Pitch: Inside the mind of a teenage girl, five personified emotions attempt to guide her through life as she moves to a different city. #1 Placements: 2 Top 5 Placements: 3 Top 12 Placements: 7 Metacritic: 94 Box Office: $857m WW Awards: Academy Award for Best Animated Feature; 10 Annie Awards BOT History: #3, Top Movies of 2015; #1 (2016), #1 (2018), Top Animated Movies of All Time; #40 (2016), #20 (2018), Top 100 Movies of All Time; 5 BOFFY awards, including Best Picture and Original Screenplay, out of 12 nominations Critic Opinion: “While other Pixar productions like the Toy Story movies, Monsters, Inc., and Up (the latter two directed by Docter) have stood out in a crowded animation field for their innovative ideas, what really distinguishes Pixar films is the way they take surprising narrative risks and dig deeply into painful emotions that most kid-friendly films strive to avoid. Inside Out does it more literally than other Pixar films, but it does it magnificently. There are endless comedic possibilities in the scenario of five demanding emotions fighting for dominance, and the film periodically toys with those possibilities to lighten the mood. But mostly, it uses the setup to explore why emotions exist, how they change as people grow up, and how a simple surface reaction might come from complicated inner conflict. [...] Like so many Pixar films, Inside Out uses a rambunctious, chaotic adventure to shape a story about growing maturity and understanding. In a deeply evocative way, it’s about coming to terms with sadness (or in this case, Sadness) and still moving forward. And it draws on recognizable, relatable experiences and feelings cleverly, in a way that isn’t entirely tied to a single age or experience. Pixar vets will remember the profound emotions brought up by the opening sequences of Up, the final scenes of Toy Story 3 and Monsters, Inc., and so many other watershed moments in the company’s library of films. Inside Out not only evokes that profundity of emotion, it does it with emotions capable of examining their own response. The emotional control room isn’t a new idea. Inside Out just manages the most ambitious and expressive version of that idea to date.” - Tasha Robinson, The Dissolve BOT Sez: “This is one of the most superlative animated films I know of. Nearly everything here works amazingly. All of these characters are given full stories and their actions all make sense, while the lack of a villain in the movie is something so rare in tentpole animated films, yet the film has a stronger sense of conflict than so many other films. I ended up caring for the wellbeing of one young girl more than the possible destruction of cities in your typical summer blockbuster. Even some of Disgust, Fear, and Anger's decisions work because they ultimately want what's best for Riley, and all of the emotions really do care not just for Riley, but for one another. Joy gets not only one of the best character arcs in Pixar History, but cherishes every bit of power Amy Poehler gives to her role. Sadness goes without saying, and Bing Bong was another obvious standout who becomes way more unexpected and nuanced a character than I thought going into this film.” - @Spaghetti "Joy is a fucking monster in Inside out. She's so ridiculously mean. She is a fucking bully" - @Ethan Hunt Commentary: Our first top 5 finalist is BOT's favorite animated movie. Successfully executing one of Pixar's more high-concept premises, Pete Docter's third feature solidified him as the studio's most imaginative and consistent voice and somewhat unexpectedly became its most successful original film unadjusted for inflation. It's also the highest grossing release in our top 10.

    In any country with a large number of cases, that's going to be due to sustained local transmission, not imported cases. New chains of transmission are a tiny drop in the bucket in countries like the US and even Canada. The key reason for Australia doing so well isn't from fewer new chains of transmission, or even a much later initial introduction - it's because they aggressively tested contacts and peripheral contacts of every case they found, not waiting for symptoms. Their testing program was way ahead of the US or even Canada. The majority of US cases can be traced to a very small number of early introductions, all via travel by air from China or Europe - the problem was that the lack of testing allowed for a huge amount of spread to occur undetected, from people who didn't even know they had the disease. For highly isolated locations like Hawaii, lack of travel may be a defining factor for a small number of cases, but that's going to be the exception, not the norm. Likewise, Canada may have a substantial number of cases linked to relatively recent US introductions (up until mid-March), but that's going to be an exception due to how much travel there is between the countries and how much bigger (and more infected) the United States is. Generally speaking, the key factor that separates how well countries have done is going to be their internal responses - either extensive testing and contract tracing, social distancing and related measures, or some combination thereof. I'm not saying travel restrictions don't serve a purpose - they help to prevent new chains of tranmission as domestic cases are brought under control - but they shouldn't be used as the primary explanation for the differences between most countries/locations.

    Yeah I am worried by October that there will be a 2nd wave so I made a plan to move my wedding reception to 2021 if needed and get married religiously in october regardless following social distancing rules.

    Yes. Wide spread testing and contact tracing was the key method. It hasn’t been 100% perfect (Ruby Princess) but it did mean that there wasn’t a massive unseen community transmission like in parts of the US. The first confirmed cases in Australia were basically mid January that same as South Korea and the US. Until the updated news today the first death in Australia was the same day as the US and there had been 2 deaths in Australia before the first confirmed death in the UK. It wasn’t until the 15th of March that the US as a whole had tested more people then New South Wales alone. Our lockdown was never as harsh as NZ. NZ listed 4 lockdown levels and have been at level 4 since March 25. Our lockdown seems to have been the equivalent of NZ’s level 3. NZ will drop back down to level 3 from next week. Schools never really completely closed (the weeks around Easter were the scheduled end of the 1st term), my nephew just turned 4 and his daycare never closed, barbers/hairdressers never closed and most retailers could remain open if they wanted. Restaurants, pubs and cafes could be takeaway only. Attendance was banned at theatres, sporting events and religious services. Basically any event where large stationary crowds gathered has been banned.

    I just learned that my uncle is in critical condition in an ICU and the doctors say he has it. Crazy thing was literally 3 days ago we had a video chat; I told him to stay safe and he said he felt fine. Scary how fast someone can deteriorate. All I can do is hope.

    I'm honestly done with the virus, it's still there but where I live it's declining and we'll have to live with it till a vaccine happens, I think it's doable. The next focus for me will be the economy! Anyway, I realized that with the Box Office being dead for the year I have no real reason to be here anymore, even if they try to release movies the numbers will be so small...Besides, all this negativity isn't healthy for me. So see you in 2021

    @Jason I agree with all your points but frankly being isolated from the world helps a lot... and in the end each country has to deal with the geography it is dealt with. Like pei and the north have had no new cases for a while and well geography is helping them. Like I think Canada dealt with the virus pretty solid but 100% we closed the US border way too late.

    Does California keep track of IFI (influenza-like illnesses) admittances/diagnoses? You probably could narrow down approximately when Covid first showed up by noting when IFI first spiked out of proportion to prior years

    It might...and it might not. It probably depends where you are and how the summer goes. All the drive ins will probably be able to open and stay open. We always joked about those summer double features adding funds to a long out movie...now, the double feature might be the only funds for the movie...or there might be some more theaters able to stay open and draw some crowds, if not blockbuster crowds. But, if 2020 is for new stuff the studios don't have a lot of faith in, and it probably is, that doesn't mean the whole year is a washout. If that allows for some experimentation in ticket pricing, subscriber plans/bases (like adding in families), and movie types and genres, well, maybe we'll have a silver lining for the year...

The Best Picture winner sold 178,000 admissions over the weekend frame across its new screen count of 277, bringing its cumulative admissions up to 1.78 million. Expect another strong week at the box-office, with the possibility of another weekly increase in its seventh week of release. We'll have to wait a few more weeks to see when it peaks and begins to decline before giving an accurate total projection, but a finish around ¥4 billion ($35-40 million) is likely, but it could go higher. >1917 had to settle for a second place debut, selling 124,000 admissions over the weekend across 353 screens; it sold 178,102 admissions over its first three-days in release. This is a so-so debut, one that was likely deflated by losing out on any major Oscar wins last Sunday. It'll have good weekday business due to attracting an older audience, but I also don't believe legs will be anything amazing since Parasite has really overshadowed it. It'll be aiming for a total around the ¥1 billion ($10 million) milestone. >Howling Village held spectacularly well in its sophomore frame. Its opening weekend was impressive and certainly welcomed by distributor Toei, but this second weekend is more impressive and should allow the film to reach the ¥1 billion ($10 million) milestone now. >Frozen II held strong in its thirteenth-weekend of release, and has now become the seventeenth-highest grossing film of all-time, surpassing Bohemian Rhapsody. Expect a total between ¥13.3-13.4 billion ($122/123 million). I know that its performance is being written off as disappointing, even "embarrassing", and I will agree that it's underwhelming, but it's far from an embarrassing performance. A 40% drop-off (giving it ¥15/16 billion) was very expected as a follow-up to a phenomenon, which have always dropped off by that much, so a 47/48% decline, while higher than expected, isn't "sad" and can certainly be attributed to its poor November release date, 6-weeks out from any holiday in the market. >Cats experienced another rough drop this weekend, and I don't believe Japan will lay claim as its biggest overseas market (currently the U.K.) now. Still, given how poorly received and how awful its numbers were everywhere else, a total a bit above ¥1.3 billion ($12 million) is respectable in that regard. I don't think another attempt at a Cats adaptation will be in the works for quite some time, but hopefully Hollywood (or whoever) does it differently next time--there's easy money to be made from it in the market. >My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising, now outside of the Top 15 in its ninth-weekend of release, surpassed the total of its predecessor over the weekend and has sold 1.31 million admissions.

    As expected, it's HUGE in Indonesia. Horror movies, especially from The Conjuring universe, are almost the same level as MCU movies here, box office wise. And MCU is the biggest/most popular movie franchise.
