Big Hero 6

Got to bring my best friend with me to an early screening of Big Hero 6, my school hooked us up. It was really good, I was so impressed. Some really good storytelling there, and while the animation obviously wasn't Pixar, it was still pretty superb, they really put a lot of focus on bringing out every motion and those were some beautiful designs and textures for basically everything. I feel like the culture blend wasn't necessary as it didn't really play much into the actual movie, but it didn't end up sticking out like a sore thumb and I think it worked alright. Unfortunately there was that one group of people who were talking and laughing the entire time, especially during the really tense moments, so I probably would've cried at a few scenes if the vibe wasn't ruined. There was no pointless romantic subplot which was soooo refreshing and they really made every character shine. Loooved it, it's definitely as good as the trailers make it out to be (and it's not too silly, which I was relieved to see!) And the stinger at the end was amazing, everyone loved it. Real treat for Marvel fans.

 

Movie comes out November 7th (in the US) I think, so I recommend it if you wanna see a really good animated flick, and especially if you enjoy superhero kinda stuff 'cause it's hard not to love the action and designs and stuff.

 

In other news, my day was an absolute rollercoaster, but to sum it up: I pulled an all nighter doing homework, but passed out 10 minutes before I had to get ready to leave and overslept and missed my History midterm, and cried from frustration, then found out the teacher cancelled class today and the midterm got moved to next week. I got to school in time for my next class, but someone pointed out that I had a popped vessel in my eye, which is a bummer, cause scenarios involving my eyes and blood rate pretty high on my nightmare scale. Then I was afraid our teacher would keep us twenty minutes later than necessary as usual and I wouldn't make it to the movie theater in time, but then Maya crashed on him right at the proper end of class and I got out :P So, it started out as literally the worst possible day, and ended up going way better than expected. Phew.

Early screening? Jealous. Getting into an early screening of a Disney movie is on my bucket list, as unlikely as that is.

 

Anyway, it's a Disney movie so I'll be there opening weekend. I'm generally not a fan of superhero movies, but I'm hoping this will be more along the lines of The Incredibles in that it uses the superhero elements as a setting to tell a more intimate story.

This movie somehow went completely under my radar for the longest time until just the past few weeks and I'm not sure why. I have been looking for a reason to go to the theatre too... So I'll definitely be trying to get in there for it.

This movie looks good too, though.
