Flying to new heights with Big Hero 6

1. What movie did you watch?
Big Hero 6

2. Have you seen it before/ how long has it been since you last saw it?
Maddie: As this was a new movie neither of us had seen it before! d
Alexis: Nope, it's totally new!

3. What memories did it recall?
Maddie: Seeing new Disney movies is always very exciting- it brings back the joy of being a child and seeing movies like Lilo and Stitch or Tarzan in theaters.
Alexis: None because I hadn't seen it before?

4. What did you think of it?
Maddie: I LOVED it! Emotionally, it hits heavy: we get to establish a great brother relationship, we experience loss, joy, and adventure all in one. In addition, it was extraordinarily fun! Baymax was a GREAT character that kids will love and the whole gang each had their great traits.

Alexis: I really enjoyed it! I thought it had a great message for kids, and awesome characters with fun personalities! Baymax was totally my favorite, he's adorable and so very lovable. 

5. Favorite moment:
Maddie: Honestly anything Baymax did. I especially loved when he would fist bump with Hiro and then go "Blalala"- I died every time.

Alexis: I really liked the scene where Hiro and Baymax were flying all across the city; I thought the animation was really cool during that part, and it was fun to see the whole city of San Fransokyo. (If that's how you spell it!)

6. Any other comments:
Maddie: In addition to a really great movie, we were treated to an amazing animated short, Feast, before the movie! The main character Winston was adorable and portrayed so many emotions. Plus his love of food made him very easy to relate to for me.

Alexis: I totally agree, this animated short gave me so many feelings!

Day 18: The Rescuers

Day 17: One big adventure with the Rescuers

1. What movie did you watch?
The Rescuers. The movie is based on the children's book series by Margery Sharp, that focuses on the Rescue Aid Society, an international mouse organization headquartered in New York and shadowing the UN. The Rescuers was Disney's first major animated success since The Jungle Book, and it is the last film of the Silver Age.

2. Have you seen it before/ how long has it been since you last saw it?
Maddie: I have seen it before but I don't think I've seen it since.
Alexis: I've seen it but it's been at least 5 years!

3. What memories did it recall?
Maddie: None really, considering I've seen it once, maybe twice.
Alexis: My sister and I would often choose this one to watch on road trips between Ohio to New Hampshire when we were kids. I think my dad had a part in that because the songs helped lull him to sleep while it was my mom's shift to drive. Also, to this day he still uses the throw away line "It's good for what ails you!" all the time.

4. What did you think of it?
Maddie: It's just okay to me. not the worst but nowhere near the best. Just Meh.
Alexis: I really enjoyed it because it's not one that I watch all the time, and I think it's really sweet. It also holds a lot of memories of watching it when I was little, so I'm sentimentally attached.

5. Favorite moment:
Maddie: This isn't really a moment, but I love the romance between Bianca and Bernard. Too cute.

Alexis: I totally agree with you Maddie, I love them! Also, I really like the scene at the beginning when we're first introduced to the Rescue Aid Society. All the different foreign mice are so cute, and I find their song very catchy.

6. Any other comments:
Maddie: I just want to know: How does Madame Medusa (so subtle, Disney) control her alligators? I just...I don't get it...

Alexis: I like all the character's reactions to the moonshine.
