10 Reasons Why Inside Out is Better Than The Good Dinosauranonygirl Last year, there were 2 Pixar movies released: Inside Out and The Good Dinosaur. Overall, in most people's opinions, Inside Out (released in June 2015) was a true Pixar masterpiece while The Good Dinosaur (released in November 2015) was one of the worst children's movies of the 21st century. If you think that The Good Dinosaur was as good as or better than Inside Out, I respect your opinion. In fact, I love both Inside Out and The Good Dinosaur equally. Many people despised The Good Dinosaur but adored Inside Out, and the reasons below could be why. *Please read this before commenting below.*
The Top Ten
Arlo was far whinier than Riley. Riley may not be the main character, but still. - anonygirl
Agree. Arlo is a CRYER. I would torture him to eat venomous berries tied up to vines and I would laugh directly at his face when he cries.
In reality, the dinosaurs went extinct. Likewise, the characters in TGD looked unrealistic. Riley was facing a tough challenge of moving out-of-state, something that could happen to a child in real life. - anonygirl
Unless you want to count Ping Pong for being thrown into the area Riley's forgotten memories, Inside Out did not have any tragic deaths. The Good Dinosaur, on the other hand, consisted of Henry getting killed saving his son, Arlo. I do not count Ping Pong fading away in the forgotten memories as an actual death for some reason. I don't know why. - anonygirl
At least Joy and Sadness could both speak. Spot could not speak. - anonygirl
The characters and storyline of The Good Dinosaur was too childish for anyone 7 or older to enjoy, but it was too violent for anyone under 7 to watch. Inside Out was mature enough for teens and adults to enjoy, but it was cute enough for children to enjoy as well. Almost every Pixar movie (except The Good Dinosaur) had interest to at some audiences (if not all audiences). Cars was at least interesting to boys ages 2-5, and at least Brave was enjoyable to girls ages 9-12. I mean, what is the target audience for The Good Dinosaur (it was too childish for teens and adults, but too scary for children)? - anonygirl
Totally agree with you man! that movie was way too disturbing and violent for kids under 7, and I hate that movie a lot. in inside out, no one practically died, and it was so perfect and had a thoughtful message. on the other hand, The Good Dinosaur could scare kids and traumatize them for the rest of their lives, and it had a lot of pain, grief, violence, and a message not so appropriate to children: The Berries.
The scenery in The Good Dinosaur may be stunning, but Inside Out looked far more colorful. Headquarters looked pretty similar to the Jetsons. TGD seemed outdated (a movie I would expect to see 30 years earlier). - anonygirl
According to a website called Cinema Blend, Pixar had a target of $500 million worth of marketing. The Good Dinosaur was the first movie was the first Pixar movie to not reach $500 million. Even Cars 2 reached its peak at $559 million (Brave was probably more than that). The Good Dinosaur had a peak grossing of maybe $300 million. Very shortly after Inside Out was released, Inside Out managed to bring in $185. All this is information from Cinema Blend. - anonygirl
HAH! I KNEW IT, I KNEW IT, OH YEAH! I guessed that it could have been a box office failure all my life, but now I have PROOF! THIS IS A GOOD DAY!
I am a girl, so please do not call me man, bro, or sir. - anonygirl
