Big Hero 6 review – Ringside Report + Wrestling Uncensored

A young genius teams with a healthcare robot to battle a mysterious force blamed for deaths and robbery of a powerful invention in the new Disney animated movie, Big Hero 6.

Hiro Hamada (Ryan Potter) has graduated high school at the age of 13 and now spends his time in shady places where illegal gambling on robot battles goes down. His older brother Tadashi (Daniel Henney) tells Hiro to stop wasting his gifted intelligence and brings him to his lab at university to get Hiro interested in applying for registering.

After meeting Tadashi’s friends and their inventions, Hiro meets Tadashi’s invention Baymax (Scott Adsit). Baymax is a robotic nurse that has the ability to scan the illness or physical ailments on a person. His calm bland personality causes some awkward and funny moments with Hiro. They start to bond when Tadashi dies in an explosion along with Hiro’s invention. Baymax downloads information on emotional pain and embarks on a journey to help cure Hiro’s sadness.

Both Hiro and Baymax find a masked man using Hiro’s invention as a weapon against them. They survive the first encounter and the rematch. Tadashi’s friends eventually come to Hiro’s aid and form a super team.

Exciting action with a dash of humour keeps the evolving story enjoyable. Baymax’s dry mannerisms and shift to superhero are the best parts of this film. This continues Disney producing more realistic emotional moments instead of characters that only exist in fairytale worlds. Human loss, the craving for vengeance, and the desire to help when help is needed, Hiro is not a perfect hero, he is only human.

Fun family experience that is the best animated watch for 2014 in theatres.

What's Phantom in Japan

Dave Simon is teamed with hardcore pro wrestling legend, The Green Phantom. Sharing a distinct fervor for pro wrestling they delve into New Japan World Wrestling, the world's second largest promotion. It attracts some of the best pro wrestling talents to perform in their ring in Japan and now some North American events too. Phantom and Simon go deep with NJPW and often make comparisons to the WWE in their wild and demanding manner. Truly entertaining and a must for any wrestling fan.
