What to watch in a plane... Big Hero 6? I recommend. Specially if you have a 3 years old sitting next to you, and then followed by "Sound of Music" because it has to be PG. So, here we go, this is another of these lovely story where there is a cute little character completely unreal getting into your heart, just like Nemo (talking fish), Buzz Lightyear (talking toy, many of them actually), Mater (taking car), Wall-e (Talking or not Garbage compacter), Eva (Not even talking egg), talking rats, talking ants, talking monsters, and a couple of normal talking people like Brave or the Incredibles. In other words, I really like absurd sense of logic and way of telling story in a far more straightforward way that Disney used to do. Of course, the story of Big Hero 6 doesn't go very far, and everything is happy ever after, but in an era where robotic can lead us in very unexpected directions, the Stargate aside (WTF?!?), it definitely pin-points the tendencies of technology, somewhere between the absolute entertainment, and perhaps the betterness of our lives. Something that children might need a story about, more than the Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella.
