Envision this. Five teenagers, of different family, race, gender, and background. Add in one inflatable robot. What’s the answer? “Big Hero 6.” Sounds great, right? Well, maybe. Since the movie hasn’t been released yet, we don’t know. But with only trailers and TV spots to sustain me, I’ve...

Crazy house parties, mean girls, legendary pranks, backstabbing, finding yourself, and coming clean in the end will always solve your problems. This is what high school is all about, right? Wrong.
