Movie: Big Hero 6, Best animation of 2014

No comments
Just a day ago, I got to watch Big Hero 6 Private Screening because of Amelia <3 I wasn't expecting much because well, usually I ain't a fan of watching animation in cinema. Don't ask me why, it was just a thing.

But gosh, after 10-20 minutes of  watching the movie, I thought to myself, "Damn, this is really amazing" and honestly it could be the best animation movie I have ever watched. From the graphics and the subtle learning messages, everything was amazing. It was filled with emotions as during the movie, everyone was laughing to no end and at certain scenes, you could hear others sniffing and clearing their tears away.

Summary of Big Hero 6
Hiro Hamada, a prodigy in robot making and takes part in illegal robot fights. His brother, Tadashi, disapprove of it and introduces him to San Fransokyo Institute of Technology, where there are other super geniuses like Hiro, creating the next innovation for the world to see. Tadashi then shows off his own invention, an inflatable medical robot, Baymax (Which looks like Michelin-Tire-Man). Hiro then wants to go to the institute and put his robotic skills to the test, however things went wrong and he has to face some trials with the help of Baymax and his new super genius friends from the institute.

Not spoiling much for you all, all this information can be seen from the trailer :)

Nah watch first then continue reading :)

I'm not sure what to really make out of this post, but I just want to share some key stuff which Big Hero 6 amazed me with along some DYK (Did You Know) moments :)

*Do know that there are minor spoilers*

1. Diversity

I thinks this ought to be the first time Disney had so many different blend of cultures and people in a movie. Starting with the place, San Fransoyko, a blend of Eastern and Western cultures. Hiro Hamada along with his other super genius friends represents a biracial characters. GoGo, one of Hiro's friends, said this memorable line, "Dude, Woman Up!" Love how they also try to show girl power in the scene. Out of all of Hiro's friends, GoGo was the strongest character.

The family on the other hand represents blended families, where the Aunt is actually taking care of Hiro Hamada since he has been an orphan since a kid. It's not a big deal to others but for some it's a mirror for them to see themselves in. I like how Disney didn't showed that Hiro have a perfect life with a perfect family. They showed struggles of how to adapt after losing someone or some struggles we may face as a teenager (Source)

2. Innovation / Passion

From the movie, it's so amazing to just take a moment and appreciate the technological advancements of animation. What truly amazes me is that after watching the movie, I feel inspired. There were so many gadgets and the inventions shown on film was just breathtaking. It makes you wonder, if those things were actually created, won't our world be a better place? Can just imagine kids picking up their art block to draw inventions after this movie. Hopefully it would be a good inspiration for their future.

3. Caring

We laugh, we cry, we fear and we love. That pretty much sums up everything up all of my emotions during the movie. When Hiro had to go through of losing someone, honestly that part hit me the most. It's hard enough losing someone but losing someone close after you already experienced prior losses? There were a lot of scenes where I was glad Baymax was there to hug him. Honestly we all need a Baymax in our lives. Someone who wants to make sure that we are alright after a hurt.

Close to the end of the movie, when Hiro was faced with a decision to save someone or to take shelter. He decided to save that person. What hit me the most was not just the fact that he willing to put others before him, he used the exact last words his brother said to him. (Source)

That's it for what caught my eye during the movie, shall now share with you some fun facts! :)


1. Big Hero 6 was a Marvel Comics property.
 Check out how different some of the characters look from when they first debut in 1998!

While the rest are from the comics: 

 I guess this is Hiro

Glad that disney did almost a 180 degree change on Baymax. Honestly if they didn't, I think he might scare the kids. haha. (Source)

2. Baymax was based on real life inflatable robot research at Harvard

FYI Baymax, inflatable robot idea was inspired by a real life robotic experiment. When I stumble onto the article, I literally went OMG. Can't wait for them to actually finalize their creation, guess the future is already here. (Source)

3. Some funny cameos in Big Hero 6

Marvel's editor, Stan Lee makes a cartoon cameo :D

 Hans from Frozen get's a few seconds of cameo before getting blown up.
Serves him right. haha.

4. Voices of Big Hero 6
How similar they look to their character (Source)

Damon Wayans Jr. as Wasabi

 Genesis Rodriguez as Honey Lemon

 Jamie Chung as GoGo Tomago
FYI she has a blog! Click here.

 T.J. Miller as Fred

 Ryan Potter as Hiro

Scott Adsit as Baymax 
Daniel Henney as Tadashi Hamada
Saved this for the last because I just found out that he acts in Korean Dramas! He was the lead role in Seducing Mr. Perfect. He was also in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. I seriously hope he would be in more movies soon :D His voice is so perfect <3 Sorry, fan girl moment. hehe.

In a nut shell, Big Hero 6 is a heart-warming film whose characters struggle with real loss and sadness, and overcome hardship thanks to their amazing ability to build robots, lasers, zero-friction magnetic wheels and other ridiculously cool stuff. This is a movie I would recommend for for ages :)

Big thanks again to Amelia and Nuffnang for this opportunity, 
super love my new toy :)
