Brain Divided follows a guy meets a blind date in a restaurant and his brain goes into overdrive, with an epic struggle between the logical and inhibited left side and the emotional, impulsive right side. The place is great and the girl is beautiful. If only the two sides of his brain (seen here as two tiny creatures running the brain's command center) could work together for once.

Brain Divided (2013) Review:

Incredibly well done CGI animated short film. Inside Out Looks Suspiciously Similar to Brain Divided Inside Out is another Pixar film where the studio takes on the task of balancing a serious drama with cartoon hijinks. Imagine my surprise when I found the following student film from 2013. Brain Divided put a smile on my face and gave me a decent laugh. I can’t say the same from the incredibly similar themed of Inside Out. The Pixar film feels like an Adam Sandler comedy trying too hard to be serious, like Big Daddy. Where Wall-E delivers a subtle message of hope as we watch characters grow on screen, Inside Out feels like a tale of stereotypes. Up carries deeply charged emotional content thanks to the multidimensional characters. Inside Out gives you a cast that is completely the opposite. The little girl, the parents and the “real” world are never really flushed out well in sacrifice for the singularly-focused “emotions” in her head. Sure, in the end there is some growth, but to me it just wasn’t as powerful as the other Pixar films I mentioned. Thus, I prefer the yucks of Brain Divided. And, I get the message of teamwork without any real dialogue from the “emotions” in the brain. -

Directed by Josiah Haworth and Joon Shik Song
