"Hairy baby. Hairy baby!"

Big Hero 6 staring voices of Scott Adist, Ryan Potter, Daiel Henney, T.J. Miller, Jamie Chung, Damon Wayans Jr., and others. 

Summary: Hiro is a boy genus who is wasting all his talent on bot fighting - which isn't illegal unless you bet, which unfortunately for him, he does. When his older brother convinces him to join the college he goes to Hiro is leery until he visits and realizes his talents could finally be put to use there. After a tragic accident, however, Hiro's life is forever changed and he is determined to hunt down and stop the man who has stolen his world changing invention.

I've seen this movie twice.

I love this movie.

But I've not wanted to write a review on it.

This is an adorable movie. The characters are unforgettable, each with familiar traits but just enough quirks to make them feel new. And then, of course, you have the lovable Baymax, which Hiro's brother Tadashi invented. Baymax is like a walking, marshmallow doctor who gives hugs. If there were more doctors like him most of us wouldn't have to be dragged kicking and screaming to the hospital.

The plot I loved, for the most part.

My complaint with this movie is, THEY DIDN'T USE MY PLOT.

And now we get to the reason I haven't been able to write a review for a month or more. I can't write one without spoilers. So for those who haven't seen the movie, go and watch it and then come back to finish reading. It is worth watching. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll love Baymax.



Now, for those who have read it. I will share my complaining.

I loved Tadashi and Hiro. The moment Tadashi rides up to save him I knew I'd love these brothers. And I kept an eye on them. Because I knew the basic idea of the movie was six kids who become superheroes of sorts.

Or so I thought.

And when Tadashi is at the college I counted over and over. With Fred, GoGo, Honey Lemon, Wasabi, Hiro, and Tadashi there were six.

I was thrilled. 

I thought the plot was going to be Hiro's microbots getting stolen and some madman using them to destroy the world. With no other choice the six friends became superheroes of sorts and stopped him. Tadashi would have to let Hiro come but there would be all these great moments of him keeping an eye on Hiro and saving him and scolding him.

Then there was the fire.

And Tadashi ran inside.

And the building blew.

And my heart got shattered.

Don't take someone with a raging fever to see a cool older brother killed. It's not nice.

I'm still not over the fact they didn't use my plot. It has kind of the same idea, but Tadashi lives.

His death was probably one of the most tragic I've ever seen in the movies. I'm still not over it yet.

But, in spite of my complaint, which I will never stop whining about, I love this movie. I even want to buy it and watch it over and over.

You know, so I can never get over Tadashi.
