    mother!

    ★★★★½

    "Well that movie had no depth to it at all. Just random nonsense."
    "What a load of hipster bullshit."
    "Did you get any of that?"
    "We should have went to see IT instead."

    Nobody puts Baymax in the corner.

    But seriously, if it wasn't for Baymax and some great visuals, Big Hero 6 would've been a disaster. It doesn't even try to change up the formula or try something new. It's a bland mix of Marvel's latest output with the cliched Disney formula, leading to a totally forgettable experience. It tries to be emotionally heavy towards the end, but it mostly doesn't work because these characters aren't even characters; they're all fit to…
