This Week From Redbox: Big Hero 6

The special bond that develops between plus-sized inflatable robot Baymax, and prodigy Hiro Hamada, who team up with a group of friends to form a band of high-tech heroes.

This weekend I took the advice of one of our writers Lorne as well as millions of other viewers that said Big Hero 6 was a must see movie. I must say they weren't wrong and this was a really good movie that I regret not seeing it in theaters.  

Hiro develops a special bond with Baymax, a personal healthcare consultant his brother invented, after his brother passes away tragically. Hiro, Baymax and a group of friends look to get to the bottom of the mystery, who stole Hiro's invention. With different misdirections throughout the movie to make you ponder then know for certain who the bad guy is makes for a very entertaining movie. 

I wish I was smart enough to turn both myself and my friends into superheroes... Oh well.

Back to the movie, Disney did an awesome job with creating a character that everyone loves both young and old. I found myself attached to Baymax, this was very evident by the end of the movie. There is a good moral dilemma tracing back to the death or Hiro's brother. Then of course a bit or a tear jerking moment followed by a happy ending. This recipe always makes for a great movie!

Highly recommend watching this movie and for a household of youngsters its pretty much a given that you need to watch this, if you haven't already.

Lorne's Funko POP! Haul

Lorne here! Your Funko Pop Vinyl extraordinaire. I've got another haul for you this week!

Everything came from eBay! I can always find any Pop I want, at a great price! (You're welcome eBay for the plug!) Anyway, this week I had 6 Funko's come in.

1. Mystery mini - Bloody 'Merle Dixon' from The Walking Dead
2. 'Sullivan' from Monsters University
3. 'Baymax' from Big Hero 6
4. Baby 'Groot' from Guardians Of The Galaxy (great movie)
5. 'Wreck-It-Ralph'
6. 'Crush' from Finding Memo

I'm so excited for this week's haul! Obviously because it expands my Funko collection, but as usual, I'm in love with their detail!

For example- Merle Dixon's bloody clothes and the knife attached to his arm, just like in the show! Sullivan with his 'Oozma Kappa' sweater on (no one liked the snobs from his competing fraternity, Roar Omega Roar anyway!). Also, how adorable is Groot is in his little flower pot?! You know, if it wasn't for Rocket Raccoon, we may not have gotten to see him this cute! Plus, Dancing Groot is a 'bobbleheads'. Everyone knows how I feel about bobbleheads, if you read my past posts. (However, I think it's fitting since he is supposed to dance!)

One of my favorites, Baymax! While he doesn't look like it, he is actually the LARGEST of the group. If anyone dares to question that Baymax isn't the cutest character ever made (and deserves to be a part of everyone's Funko collection) then we may have to duel....Not really....Ok, we still might!!! In the meantime, can someone put a smile on Ralph's face?! :) 

The funniest Funko of this haul definitely has to be 'Crush'. Now, if you are following me on Instagram, then you'll know I recently held a "500 Followers Giveaway". Once I hit 500 followers, I was going to giveaway a 'Crush' Funko. (We DO finally have a winner!) Please follow me if you want to be a part of future giveaways! Now, back to what I was saying....I thought the 'Crush' character was really adorable, so I ended up buying 2! One for me & one for the giveaway. What can I say, I was all like, whoa! And you were like, whoa! (Hopefully you get the reference I just made...)

Thank you guys for reading my review on my Funko haul this week! As always, make sure you continue following the site for most posts, reviews, giveaways, etc... & You can follow me on Instagram @lorneondrums

We will see you on the next one!
