Previews we saw today in front of "Big Hero 6":

Home. Looks like a Lilo and Stitch type movie, about an alien who doesn't fit in, and a black woman with a flying car; in other words awesome. We laughed a lot at the preview which is a good sign.

Minions. This looks cute and funny! The Minions themselves are unmarked gender, which is apparently "everyone is male," and that bothers me some. But the goofy, cute humor appeals.

Inside Out, from Pixar. This looks awful. The preview was sexist, annoying, and unfunny. Playing on base gender stereotypes and families being annoyed at each other is not fun.

Spongebob. I'll skip it.

A Lucas film offering with fairies; it looked dull.


Big Hero 6 was all-around wonderful. It was funny, beautiful, and moving. Highly recommended. There is an extra scene post-credits.

I saw it in Shnjuku and some foreigner walked out when the credits rolled! A) no one leaves before the end of the credits in Japan and b) come on dude it's been how many years of Marvel movies now? Never leave a Marvel movie before the credits finish!

But yes, omg, I loved it.

Best Stan Lee cameo of them all, imo.

"Home" is based on "The True Meaning of Smekday," an absolutely wonderful illustrated YA book. I don't have great expectations of the movie, but the book is so good I'll just go read it again and be happy.

"Inside Out" got a lot of feminist-media-critic buzz earlier this year because it's the second Pixar film with a female protagonist, but I haven't heard anything else about it, good or bad. If it literalizes emotions it'll probably be too simplistic and stereotypical for my taste.

Oh geez, Smek Day was an AWESOME book! The black girl in the flying car is the protagonist (the book is her school report on Alien Landing Day). I so hope that the movie doesn't suck.
