(Spoiler alert: Plot of first 20 minutes and themes revealed. This week Philip and most kids from the Buffalo area had off from school because of the huge lake effect snow storm which paralyzed half of the city bringing up to 6 feet of snow in some areas. Our area only got about 6 inches but since school staff come from all over the surrounding area, school was cancelled here too. We were fortunate enough to be able to leave our house and make it to a movie. Everyone who went really liked it!)
I went to Big Hero 6 yesterday. I enjoyed it a lot. The main character is Hiro. No one is as smart as him. He makes robots that go to fights. He wins a lot. Both he and his brother Tadashi very much love each other. Tadashi really wants Hiro to use his brain in a good way. He enrolls at the university and meets friends and Tadashi's health care robot Baymax. Baymax is a sweet all-altruistic robot. Having this nature Baymax teaches Hiro about what can make you truly happy. Happiness finds itself in relationships with good friends and family. Dear Baymax is the best example of a friend. Tadashi is another example of loving others above yourself. Hiro learns that most important is love means caring and forgiveness and loyalty. I want to be that kind of friend.
