Big Hero 6 (2014)

Summary from IMDb:
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.

Comments:

Baymax: On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate your pain?

I love, love this movie! Funny, heartwarming, and clever at the same time! Who knew nerds could be super cool? And that robots could be the future of health care, or San Francisco would blend perfectly with Tokyo?

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Seriously, if you haven’t watched this, you are missing out a lot!

Frozen (2013)

Where: the mall of LA
With: Mom, pangs, Miss P
Date of Viewing: Christmas 2013

Genre: animation, adventure, comedy
Personal Blahs:
This movie made me feel the warmth of the holiday season ! The storyline was awesome! I love how the animation was made; it must have been a lot of work for the producers. But it paid of because people just can’t get over how much they enjoyed this movie. That snowman Olaf, he made awww all the time and to just once again delight in innocence and kind nature. I like how the traditional “act of love” was made different in this movie – it centered on the family. After all, it is in the family that we first learn how to love. Despite the cold weather, this movie melted my heart! And the question is, it is really possible for real life people to have a crush on animated characters? I think I know the answer too well! 😀

Olaf: [singing] Winter’s a good time to sit close and cuddle / But put me in summer and I’ll be a…
[pauses in front of a puddle]
Olaf: … happy snowman!

Kung Fu Panda 2 (2011)

Where: at home
With: with Meg
Date of Viewing: February 04, 2012

Genre: animation, adventure, action
Two Cents:
As expected of this movie, it was super awesome! 🙂 That might be a bit biased since I love pandas, but I being one of the highest grossing movies for 2011, I think a lot would think likewise. Story was amazing, with a balance between the drama and the comedy. It was entertaining, and the action parts were cool. The animation was perfect! It is a must-watch movie for all ages. And the ending! Oh what can I say, it seems to be stating something. *ahem ahem* part 3?? 🙂 I should have watched this on the big screen! 🙂

Two Cents:
One of my favorites! I really like the animation, the storyline, the characters! It was funny and romantic at the same time. Brazil looks awesome, and the carnival was so vibrant and full of colors. The background music complements to the movie. Also, this flick is full of lessons : courage, friendship, love, making the right choices. Truly for the family. It brings out the kid in me. 🙂 Highly recommended for young and old alike!
