    As Emotional as the First One
    I did get emotional just like I expected. Everything I expected from this I saw, more or less, on the screen. Like it happened for the first one, there are a bunch of scenes that make you reevaluate the whole thing, and they all came toward the end.

    Even the moral of the film is similar to that of the first one. But it just moved me just as much, as a person suffering from anxiety. Really powerful scenes, on both a dialogical and visual level. Accepting anxiety as a crucial part of our life and persona is not that easy, but I think the film helps this process.

    This is one of the many purposes of cinema. Just think of all the little kids and children going to the theatre. They might not get it, but they'll soon be more conscious and accepting of themselves and the people they will become.

    Great movie.
    I got my mom, and I tickets to see this movie. I realized we had yet to watch the first. So, we did that and today saw the second. Here are my thoughts.

    I liked the first a lot. I got sad many times. I saw the girl as I do my niece, two nephews and second cousin. Who are 5, 2, 2 or 3 and 8. I felt bad for the character and wanted to help her. I think I liked the second even more. You get to see the story much more with the main character and her parents. I thought that was great. It broke the story up more. I saw the girl as I do myself more than I look at the kids I know. There were a few parts that made me sad. Just thinking back on a different life.

    I thought the movie was the perfect length.

    The one thing that threw me off for a bit was the part with the character from the kid's cartoon. I liked the difference in art styles. But it just seemed to take my mind away from the story. But only at first.

    I loved the movie and look forward to getting both on 4K.

    Here is to a third with her in college!

    This is for adults
    Now I just created this account this account to encourage anyone that's skeptical about seeing this movie to get up and go just go. I strongly believe this movie wasn't aimed for the audience of little kids it's aimed towards our generation us the new adults this movie hit and had me thinking about it hours after leaving the theaters it was fun emotional and had me engaged the whole time. Now I get people are saying this isn't magical like the first film and truth be told it's not. We had child like mindsets back then and carried it over hoping we'd feel what we felt the first time watching the first movie. And that's right it's not as magical but that's doesn't mean it's not better i thoroughly enjoyed the second one much more than first it's far more complex it's more relatable and this film now holds a special place in my heart. Younger kids will appreciate this movie more as they grow older they will and i may be overrating this movie but that's just how much it spoke to me. The humor was there. The emotions were there and most importantly the message was there. If they make a third one and I pray to god they do this will be the greatest pixar trilogy ever. Thank you pixar for not forgetting about the kids that grew up and delivering a movie that spoke to us. 10/10.

    Still brilliant but still misleading
    The new film is as brilliant and wonderful as the old film was, using a very entertaining and imaginative way to represent emotions and their impact on people, more specifically, a young girl. The metaphors brought to life (e.g., stream of consciousness is stream, train of consciousness is a choo choo) and representations are very creative and very funny. The film gets a 10 for the wonderful images, sounds, and ideas. But it gets a 0 for accuracy. People's behavior is not controlled by emotions - emotions are only one factor that the person deals with. In addition, there is reality, internal processes, and social pressures. Each action takes place in the context of these competing forces. The true "control panel" is not in a room with the emotions, but rather the emotions show up on a panel in a different, higher level panel, where all these other impulses and perceptions compete for action that will reward the person and further their goals.
