Big Hero 6 (2014)
Damon Wayans Jr.
The special bond that develops between plus-sized inflatable robot Baymax, and prodigy Hiro Hamada, who team up with a group of friends to form a band of high-tech heroes.
What is with Disney and making me bawl? I swear, I knew at the beginning that the brother and Baymax were going to die, and I just cried even harder because of it. Disney has a death toll as high as George R. R. Martin. It’s starting to annoy me.
Loved the world that was created. Not sure why I’ve been noticing worlds so much, but I have, and I really liked this one. It kind of reminded me of Meet the Robinsons in the way that it felt like anything was possible.
There was a nice diverse cast of characters. The smart scientists weren’t just boys, they had girls, for my little girl to want to be like. I like that Disney thinks of those things. I know some people think that it’s very commercial, but at least they try and tic all the boxes.
The story was good, though, predictable. Hated the mad scientist and told my husband, as tears were streaming down my face, that I wanted to kill that son of a bitch. Because of him Hiro lost his brother. At least he was able to recreate Baymax.
Anyway, while I didn’t enjoy this movie as much as Frozen, I thought it was really cute and definitely worth owning.
