Big Hero 6 is fantastic, it is a roller-coaster of emotion. Without giving spoilers it twists just the right way, Baymax, the marshmallow-y robot, is hilarious and very literal minded. The main character Hiro struggles with a rush of emotions and power that no pubescent child should be expected to shoulder. The eclectic group of people stand strong: Go Go's cry of "Woman up!" is wonderful and well placed; Honey Lemon is sweet, but not willing to let anything happen to her friends; Wasabi is a bit out of his depth and he knows it, not much for improvising he can still be relied on; Fred is just weird, but funnier than any of the others. All in all it is a great movie, keep the tissues handy though, I promise you it doesn't pull any punches.
The Slow Regard of Silent Things by Patrick Rothfuss is by far and away my favorite of today's media update. The story is a divergence from the story told in his King Killer Chronicles, but focuses on the character Auri and a week in her life. It seems that she is the most in touch with the world of Temerant and its true workings. Auri thinks that she is a broken person, but it is clear that she is more whole than many, if not all, of the other characters in the King Killer Chronicles. You can pick up a copy here.
1989 DLX - Taylor Swift Don't look at me like that, Taylor Swift is an exceptional musician and this CD demonstrates that she is still among the best. While she takes a turn away from the heartbreak songs about loves lost. She has fully departed from country with this album, and it sounds great. The Target exclusive DLX edition is worth the extra money if only for the song "Wonderland" which has been stuck in my head since I heard it, but it is nowhere near the only catchy song on the album. The entire album is rife will wonderful sounds and catchy lyrics, just don't get lost in "Out of the Woods" or "I Know Places". The entire disk is an anthem for youthful exuberance and joy at being in the prime of life and Taylor nails it.
