Big Hero 6 (2014)

Rotten Tomatoes gave this cute, dark, and tragic story based off a Marvel comic an impressive 89% and it had received praise for it's tear jerking story-telling and a multicultural cast of characters which are said to be the first for any Disney film.
In a Rotten Tomatoes review of the Oscar-winning Disney animated take on a complicated
Marvel comic, Big Hero 6 has been heavily praised for it's tear-jerking story which was completely different from some of Disney's previous animated films like Frozen, Beauty and the Beast, Lion King, and The Little Mermaid. This Disney film does not involve princesses and evil royals, but involves a grief-stricken child prodigy and his robot companion. It has also been praised for being plot-twisting, funny, sweet, adorable, and of course, tear jerking. It would go on the win the Academy Award for Best
Animated Feature Film in 2015.

Big Hero 6 tells the story of Hiro Hamada (Ryan Potter), a 14-year old robotics prodigy who resides the the futuristic city of San Fransokyo with his older brother Tadashi (Daniel Henney) and their aunt Cass (Maya Rudolph). When he is tricked into developing a desire for a higher education by his brother after being arrested for taking part in an illegal bot fight, Hiro comes up with the most brilliant invention that all of San Fransokyo or in this case, the entire Disney cinematic universe, has ever seen-microdots, tiny little robots that fuse together to build anything one's heart desires. He then, shows off his new found invention at science fair where Tadashi's professor and mentor Robert
Callahan (James Cromwell) accepts Hiro into his science program after showcasing them. However, the celebration is tragically cut shot when Tadashi is killed in a deadly fire while trying to save
Callahan, leaving Hiro and the people of San Fransokyo into mourning. Still grieving his brother’s death, Hiro begins to isolate himself from all of his friends and family while giving up all dreams of attending school at the same time. But then, he activates his brother's robotics project Baymax (Scott
Adsit), a personal healthcare companion who eventually becomes Hiro's surrogate brother. It's then the two unlikely friends discover a sinister plot that was hatched by a masked villain named Yokai (who later turned out to be Callahan himself) to steal Hiro's microbots in order to use them for a vengeful act against a former colleague (Alan Tudyk). At this point, Hiro and Baymax team up with Tadashi's four friends Fred (TJ Miller), a hippy-looking fan-boy son of a wealthy entrepreneur, Wasabi (Damon
Wayan Jr), a physics student who just happens to be paranoid about everything around him, Honey
Lemon (Genesis Rodriguez), the sweet, optimistic fashion loving chemist queen, and Gogo (Jamie
Cheung), the engineering student who just happens to be a woman of a few words who eventually becomes a mother-figure to Hiro. Together, they seek justice for their fallen friend and brother by ridding the city of the evil that has come upon it.

What a lot of the critics on Rotten Tomatoes have been saying about this film that I completely agree with is that this story is so centered on grief, a topic that is rarely done on film, especially in western animated films where the subject seems to be to harsh for younger audiences. In one scene of the movie for example, the grief-stricken Hiro tried to turn Baymax into a murderous robotic killer after learning that Callahan had killed Tadashi in the fire. But the problem with this reprogramming itself is that goes against everything Tadashi himself hoped for Baymax when he first built him for he had visioned Baymax to be healer who cares for the sick, the injured, the grief-stricken, and the depressed. In a twist of events, Hiro discovers a video containing a series of tests (all 84 of them)
Tadashi has done to program Baymax into the healthcare companion he would eventually become to
Hiro. The emotions in the scene are truly raw and real and you can tell that the voice actors were really putting their hearts into connecting with the audience. However, to understand this scene a little more, let's break down the scene:

1. Hiro has fallen into a dark place after learning that his late brother's beloved mentor was the one who was responsible for his death and because of his lack of remorse, Hiro becomes angry and seeks vengeance against him.

2. As far as Baymax goes, however, he is the driver of both the scene and Hiro's story. He asks questions to Hiro but those questions are so pointed that he becomes to uncomfortable to answer any of them, making waves for more anger and emotion on his part. Finally after
Baymax tries to explain to Hiro that he was programmed to heal, he finally breaks downs admitting to the loss of Tadashi being his reason for his anger.

3. When Baymax tells him that “Tadashi is here”, that is when the video begins to play. This video is about Tadashi's trial and error of trying perfect Baymax, private moments that were not allowed to be seen by anyone but yet, it's filled with light, humor and it helps break some that dramatic tension because it makes things more emotional to see Tadashi being in a goofy place.
Hiro sees that and before long a little smile comes across with face along with a few tears. This scene humanizes Tadashi because it is him who the audience sees in control as he did not give up on Baymax in those eighty four attempts he had tried to activate him.

4. Despite the video being nothing more than just a recording of Tadashi and his crazy trial and errors, Hiro finds the video to be very soothing to him for Tadashi is saying some of the things he needed to hear at that moment and there's a feeling of true interaction with his brother. It allowed Hiro to grow to admitting that he was nothing like Tadashi at all.

5. This is where Gogo has an important role in this scene. Naturally as a woman of a few words, she can be slightly harsh in nature at times, but at this moment, her motherly instincts allows her soft side to be revealed when she comes in comes in and give Hiro a warm hug by letting him off the hook for a bit. This moment does allow Hiro to receive forgiveness because Gogo is known to be the hardest of hard. Yet, there is empathy from not just her, but also the other characters because they all understand what Hiro is going through and nothing in the world can ever replace his beloved brother. The way how this scene is played out is so powerful and realistic, that it makes some audiences start thinking that Tadashi might be talking directly to audience as well, not just to Baymax due to how his video is set up in the scene. Yet at the same time, it brings a lot of emotion to the story to the point where the audience, including myself may need to reach for those tissues.

When it comes to the voice acting in this film, there no denying that all the voice actors took their roles so seriously, it's no wonder the audience connected to all the characters so well. Ryan Potter brings out the heart and soul of the film as protagonist Hiro. The way he acted out this character is so realistic that it makes you think that he may have been really emotional during some of line recordings.
Sure Hiro does not sound like your typical Disney character, but he's real at heart with no fake bone in him, especially during emotional moments where you really connect to him when Potter's performance is at it's highest peaks. On a side note, it has actually been reported that Potter did literally “mourn” during some his sessions that the directors had to briefly stop them despite Potter insisting it was all
“acting” on his part. Scott Adist really did Baymax so much justice all together. While Baymax is the only character in the entire film that expresses no emotion Adist's performance of the character did help make Baymax show his own emotions without ever expressing it physically since he's a robot after all.
In addition, his lyrical lilt lends comedy to cute little phrases like “hairy baby” and “we jumped out a window. One last thing that was mentioned by all the the critics on Rotten Tomatoes regarding Big Hero
6 is how beautifully animated the film is all together. For example, I loved how they blended the geography of San Francisco with the sights and sounds of Tokyo along with a few iconic sights that made the northern California city famous in order to create the futuristic city of San Fransokyo. The animators even created a back story for this city as well. In a parallel universe, San Francisco is devastated by the 1906 earthquake and Japanese immigrants rebuilt the city before renaming it San
Fransokyo. They made every character look and feel realistic as well as the city they live in. When I was looking up on how they beautifully animated the movie, I was shocked to learn that they used an entirely new software program called Hyperion. I really loved how they were able to use that new programming to create some of the film's most beautiful cinematic images and dept as well as capture some of the gorgeous lighting that can be found in the movie. It's really safe to say that it's probably the most beautifully animated movies Disney has ever done that if it were a 2D film, the animation would be spectacular.

So anyway, I truly agree with what the critics had to say about Big Hero 6 not only is this film beautiful on every level, but it is one of the most down-to-earth superhero themed films that has even been developed for film. This is because comic books are very difficult to adapt into a well-written film because the characters and the plot can change from time to time which can make it very challenging to make all the characters relate to the audience who would want to like them on every level. Disney, however, has managed to take on this story very well by writing a lesser version of the bleak tale by making focused on two brothers and a robot that symbolizes their love for each other. As one of the best films Disney has put out there since Tangled, it's no wonder it won the Oscar for Best Animated
Feature Film.…...

...Joseph Campbell published The Hero with a Thousand Faces in 1949 that discussed the journey of the hero in most heroic stories. I have applied Campbell’s hero cycle to The Matrix, starring Keenu Reeves and created by Andy and Larry Wachowski. The Call to Adventure in The Matrix This is the first step in Campbell’s hero cycle. This initial step is followed by helpers. * The Call to Adventure – In The Matrix, Neo is called to the adventure when Trinity sends him a message over his computer telling him to follow the white rabbit. Trinity tells Neo, “The answer is out there, Neo, and it's looking for you, and it will find you if you want it to.” * Helper – His helpers are Trinity, who respects as a computer hacker and calls him to action, and Morpheus, who tries to guide him away from the agents who try to capture him. The Crossing in The Matrix * The crossing is the point in which the hero reaches the point of no return. From this point the hero can never come back to his/her previous life. After the hero crosses over, the hero must pass tests with some help from others. * The Crossing – In The Matrix, the point of no return occurs when Morpheus offers Neo a choice of two pills. If he picks one, he will return to world he knows. If he selects the other pill, he will see the new world, the world as it actually exists.

...people in this world who I can consider a “hero”-- not that there were many before the modern generation. In this day and age people view those who are paid to serve and protect as “heroes”, but I would kindly disagree. The Police Officers and Firemen are not heroes they are simply normal people trying to make a living. To truly be a hero, in my opinion, you must be extraordinary in every way. A true hero must be kind, generous, courageous, truthful, loyal, and chivalrous, an each characteristic must be taken to an extreme. There are many people, mostly in books, who have the traits of a hero, but none who have them all. One such person is the protagonist of the series of books named the Night Angle trilogy by Brent Weeks; this character’s name is Kylar. Kylar is the immortal embodiment of retribution, and he has four of the traits a hero should have. He is loyal; even after a fight to the death he remained loyal to his master, he is courageous; even with the threat of permanent death Kylar charged into a war so that he might save the woman he loved, he is kind; despite his horrible past he still goes out of his way to help others, and he is chivalrous; he would never do anything that would cause harm to those he cared for or those who are innocent. Another of the fictional people who has some of the traits of a hero is Harry Dresden; he is the protagonist of The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher. Harry has four of the characteristics of a hero. Harry is kind; he risks his life......

Courage is what every hero has to help others work through demanding changes and challenges. I think willingness is the best trait about every hero because helping people is what they do. In conclusion, inspiration, courage, and willingness is what heroes use to help them make a difference in the world and my life. Inspiration is a great trait which all awesome heroes possess. My dad inspires me by caring for everybody around him. This motivates me by doing the same thing. My dad is very athletic, and he led by example.

...What is a hero? A hero can be someone from all walks of life in their very own way. Heroes are seen in so many aspects. There are the heroes that are depicted in the movies and on television, and then there are the real heroes in reality that are just ordinary everyday people from that cashier at the local store to the neighbor that lives two houses down the street. To me personally a hero is someone that gives unselfishly to others and puts them before themselves in every way. This is also a person that would go to extremes to do for others that maybe in need. In society today a hero is not someone that does something for the recognition, but just simply because they want to. In today’s society others have many different views on what a hero is, and that can be anything from what they see on TV and movies, to what they see in their family members and friends. A hero is all what you make that person out to be in your eyes. When I look around and view my family and friends that are in my life there are several that stand out as heroes, but that one person that has the different characteristics and qualities of what a hero in my eyes is my husband Greg. In my eyes he has always been my hero, but he’s a hero to so many others as well for more reasons than one. He’s very easy to get along with and always there for his family and friends no matter what as a husband, father, friend, brother, and son. He’s a hero in the lives of others just by letting them know that in life...

...“Hey mom what’s a hero” asked the child.” I don’t really know” replied the mom. So what do you think truly defines a hero. Well I think there are many traits a hero processes or at least should pocess. A hero isn’t always the guy with powers, who wears a cape and a pair of tights. Truthfully a hero can be anyone or anything, even an animal or a small child. I think a few traits a hero should definitely have are being helpful, kind, brave, and physically or mentally strong. They should also be a good role model. A person who is a villain of some kind is not a hero in fact they are the total opposite of a hero. Firstly the main function of a hero whether it being animal or person is to be a good role model. Not only should the hero be a role model for children but also for the people surrounding them, which includes adults. Another function of a hero would be to save people’s lives whether be literally or figuratively saving their lives. Many heroic figures like doctors, police, firefighters etc. save an abundant of lives every day. But that doesn’t mean that to be a hero you have to save lives every day. While some heroes save lives and are good role models others do not do both. Some heroes may just do good deeds and are good role models. However just because they don’t save lives doesn’t make them less of a hero. An example of this type of hero would be someone like your dad or mom. You could look at them as a heroic figure but that does not mean they save lives like a...

The Hero

...Construction of the Hero Cara O’Keefe The construction of the ‘Hero’ is one every writer should consider. The hero or protagonist is designed to keep the narrative moving and whose actions create progress for the plot (Morrow et al, 1997). Pearson (2001, p. 101) defines hero’s as “fearless protagonists who realise their own special power and go on to take great personal risks in order to change their reality. In day-to-day life, these powerful archetypes provide a structure that can release the ability of ordinary people to rise to challenges, take risks, break rules, and transform their lives”. There are many ways of defining what a hero is and what a protagonist is. A hero is usually the protagonist but this is not always the case and vice versa.

The definition of a hero is one with heroic qualities in the opinion if others. To me or you, however a hero can be much more. Whether you believe an athlete should be a hero or deserves to be one. Most kids believe that they are. They buy their jerseys and put their posters on their bedroom walls. They watch them on TV or go to their games and look up to them like they are superhuman. Being able to dunk a basketball or throw a football down a football field may not seem heroic to the average person but to kid it is.

Not only is Beowulf a hero because of his physical strength, but rather than basking in the resulting glory, he gives the glory to God.  Beowulf is the ultimate hero who put his life on the line for an entire kingdom. Beowulf's heroism can be seen when he takes 14 of the bravest in his land to go help Hrothgar.  Hrothgar was Beowulf's father's close friend who had been plagued by attacks for twelve years that threatened an entire kingdom.  Beowulf did not have to offer Hrothgar's kingdom help, but does so because he wants to uses his God given strength to the best of his ability.  As soon as Beowulf heard of the troubles in this land he set sail immediately.  Beowulf continues to show his thankfulness by thanking God for giving them safe travel across the sea.  Beowulf is lead to Hrothgar and offers him is services.   Beowulf is asked by the warriors to tell of his past defeats while eating in Hrothgar's palace.  Beowulf is already a hero to the people of this land for he is about to rid them of their enemy.

...Sg was a hero (masculine or gender-neutral) or heroine (feminine) (Ancient Greek: ἥρως,hḗrōs) is a person or character in literature who, in the face of danger and adversity or from a position of weakness, displays courage or self-sacrifice—that is, heroism—for some greater good. Historically, the first heros displayed courage or excellence aswarriors. The word's meaning was later extended to include moral excellence. The word can be used as a gender-neutral term for both males and females[1]because it has no gender-specific suffix in English. Stories of heroism may serve as moral examples. In classical antiquity, cults that venerated deified heroes such as Heracles, Perseus, and Achilles played an important role in Ancient Greek religion. Politicians, ancient and modern, have employed hero worship for their own apotheosis (i.e., cult of personality). Stories of the antihero also play a major role in Greek mythology and much of literature. The antihero is a protagonist who lacks the typical characteristics of heroism, such as honor, nobility, bravery, compassion, and fortitude. The favorite type of antihero is an individual who lacks moral character.[2] The concept of a story archetype of the standard "hero's quest" ormonomyth pervasive across all cultures is somewhat controversial. Expounded mainly by Joseph Campbell in The Hero with a Thousand Faces (published in 1949), it illustrates several uniting themes of hero stories that hold similar ideas of what a hero......

...RESULT UPDATE HERO MOTOCORP Disappointment continues India Equity Research| Automobiles Hero MotoCorp’s (HMCL) Q3FY15 EBITDA at INR8.2bn was ~11% below our/consensus estimates, due to lumpy brand promotions (Tiger Woods/Sardar Singh) and staff costs (Neemrana plant). PAT at INR5.8bn was further hit by lower other income and higher tax rate. We expect margins to recover from Q4FY15 on lower brand related spend and reversal in excise duty anomaly. Similarly, domestic scooter volumes will see an uptick with increase in capacity and expiry of the one-time order from Sri Lanka. However, owing to weak traction in volumes, we prune our FY15/FY16 volume estimates by 4% and EPS by 8%/2%. We introduce FY17 numbers with volume growth of 12% and EPS of INR199. Maintain ‘HOLD’ with TP of INR2,990 (15x FY17E EPS). Intensifying competition in the executive motorcycle segment and weak brand franchise in the premium segment are key headwinds to our volume/margin estimates. Operating performance fails yet again While revenue at INR68.4bn was in line, EBITDA at INR8.2bn was ~11% below our/consensus expectations, primarily owing to higher other expenses. While gross margin improved 20bps QoQ, higher staff costs (up 50bps QoQ to 4.6% of sales) and other expenses (up 110bps QoQ to 11.7% of sales) impacted overall margins (-150bps QoQ at 12%).

...MY HERO There are various characteristics before one can be considered as a hero. Some say a hero is selfless, doing his best in a time of need. They have compassion, putting other’s need before their own. They can sacrifice so that others can be better off. They are willing to give up something personal to achieve something greater for everybody. A hero is courageous, willing to face his fears, and meet them head on. They also possess an important skill which makes it possible to face overwhelming odds. Considering these, I can proudly say that my parents are my hero. Even though they didn’t sacrifice for everybody, they did sacrifice a lot to provide for our family. They were an inspiration for their children. They are very much concerned about our well-being. They live by their values and they are patiently teaching these values to us. They are very persistent. Bearing in mind the individual characteristics of my parents, my father is a man of few words. He sets the rules for us. It’s a very crucial decision especially we are all girls. I admire him for being a strict but at the same time a cool father to us. I grew up respecting his every judgment and learning how to listen in everything he says. Because of him, I learned how to be a disciplined and well-rounded lady.

Coming to the conclusion of the investigation, Big Hero 6 realize that Professor Callaghan is alive as well as the man responsible for starting the fire. Hiro comes to this realization and as a result, he is utterly outraged and is consumed with revenge. This is where both Hiro and Callaghan share the same emotional turmoil. Hiro programs Baymax to a instinctive drive to kill Callaghan. As a result, Go Go, Honey Lemon, Fred and Wasabi go through a struggling attempt to stop Baymax. The famous quote Baymax says to Hiro "Tadashi is here" This reveals that Baymax carries Tadashi's legacy that in a sense, Hiro looks at Baymax as Tadashi, because Baymax displays the same characteristic as Tadashi. For 1) Tadashi built Baymax personally to help others. Tadashi builds a special chip with all of his inscriptions which makes Baymax so lovable. Even though Baymax is programmed to help others, his actions are equivalent to Tadashi's actions, especially in situations where Hiro is in distress and in both scene's of Tadashi's and Baymax's sacrifice. After Hiro comes to this realization, he overcomes his depression and grief. In the end, through Hiro's eyes, Tadashi never really died. Tadashi is the true hero.

Hero and Villain

...In literature, a hero/heroine, or protagonist, is the principal character of a story, which may be known for special achievements. It´s sometimes used to simply describe the protagonist of a story, or the love interest, a usage which can conflict with the superhuman expectations of heroism. [1] Hero and heroine came to refer to characters who, in the face of danger and adversity or from a position of weakness, display courage and the will for self sacrifice, that is, heroism for some greater good of all humanity.  In modern movies, the hero is often simply an ordinary person in extraordinary circumstances, who, in despite the odds being stacked against him or her typically prevails in the end. [2]  The villain usually is the antagonist, the evil character in the story, who tends to have a negative effect on other characters or serves as an obstacle the hero must struggle to overcome. In other words, the villain typically a charismatic evildoer who represents, leads, or himself embodies the struggle the hero is up against. [3]  Animal Farm is a vivid and eloquent novel written by George Orwell, who aims to prove that human nature and diversity prevent people from being equal. It also successfully presents how the mechanism of propaganda and brainwashing works in totalitarian regimes. Snowball is described as a vivacious pig, which is quick in speech and more inventive. He´s the best at writing; painted out `Manor Farm´ and in its place painted `Animal Farm.´ During......
