It's a rare treat to be able to sit and watch two Oscar winning movies in one evening in the short span of two hours but such a treat will be yours simply by taking home a copy of Big Hero 6. Now, some of you might be thinking, "But, I'm an adult and don't watch children's films!" To that, I simply must reply, "Like, OMG, you, like, totes have no idea what you're, like, missing, ya know! I mean, come on, what are you, like, forty or something?! That's barely elderly, so just, like, ya know, watch it already!"
What you would find upon viewing both the Oscar winner for Best Animated Feature, Big Hero 6, and the accompanying Oscar winner for Best Animated Short, Feast, are two films that will speak to the heart of every viewer. Themes of love, heartbreak, loss, friendship, loyalty and empathy are evident throughout...and that's only in the ten minute masterpiece of animation about a dog named Winston and his person. After that, you can venture into the animated feature where you will revisit all of those with the added themes of redemption, devotion, justice and vengeance mixed in, all swirling around in a colorful and beautifully rendered environment where both tears and laughter will be evoked in equal measure by a cast of relatable, lovable, and fully-embodied nerd-ly characters.
What more could you ask for...like, for reals?
And, honestly, take a look at that face up there...how can you possibly resist? Am I right? Why yes, yes I am.
