I saw a movie! In the theatre! Before it was already a month old!
All three of these things are unusual for me.
(Also, I'm not dead!)
Anyway, I really liked "Big Hero 6". Quite a lot. Not only did I cry like a little girl at the ending - and notably, my own little girl D did NOT cry, so huh, what's up with that - but also, OMG you guys, I totally fell in love with Honey Lemon. She reminded me a lot of Beth, only not really. Only YES! But still not really.
Initially I really did think so - her intro totally had me. Cute girl, skinny and tall, big glasses and INCREDIBLY enthusiastic about SCIENCE stuff!! But, there are major differences, including that she's still very energetically cheerful and outgoing even when NOT sciencing (Beth is, but not much with strangers because she tends to be so crippled by shyness, which obviously Honey Lemon doesn't seem to worry about), and also, Honey is majorly girly. Which I like, don't get me wrong, but Beth isn't so much. But, then I realized, she's got these little synthetic bomb things that do different things... explode into puffy matter, make ice, make smoke... Which is actually VERY close to something I wrote Beth making for Darkwing in "High, Dry, and Flooded" way back in like 2008. So then I went back to "Except YES!" LOL.
Anyway, egotistical associations with my own fan character from another series aside, oh, I really did like it. I really felt those emotions. And it's honestly funny, and really good action too. Plus some great actors! I love James Cromwell, and Scott Adsit - wow! I always felt he was underused on "30 Rock" - Pete never had enough to do - so having him play the secondary lead was lovely.
Yay! Hooray for EVERYONE!
So in conclusion, see "Big Hero 6". Don't be a drag like I usually am! See a movie! (I see literally 2 movies every year in a theatre. I'm not joking, that is absolutely how many I see. Typically it's one with the kids, and one for my or Dan's birthday. And that is it.)
Uh so. How you been?
