Hollywood has its own style of gift giving during the holiday season, offering up teasers and trailers for the coming year. It's almost like being visited by the Ghost of Cinema Yet to Come - minus the dusky shroud and spectral, outstretched hand.

The eager audiences, keen to get a glimpse at the forthcoming cavalcade of films, digest the previews jubilantly, hoping the promos don't reveal all the best bits of next year's potential blockbusters. All that excess Hollywood hype intensifies into a blaring buzz this time of year, compelling movie reviewers and entertainment bloggers to encapsulate the hysteria into bulleted lists for assimilation.

Big Hero 6 delivers family-friendly superhero action with huggable robot hero. The enchanting, lovable robot in Disney's "Big Hero 6" may be the visual centerpiece for this beguiling superhero origin film, but it's the story's focus on ingenuity, friendship and coping with grief that makes it so appealing.

Disney delivers yet another gem in what is billed as the company's 54th animated feature in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series. It also happens to be the third superhero film from the Disney-Marvel partnership this year, with the other two being produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Motion Pictures. It is likely to join "Captain America: Winter Soldier" and "Guardians of the Galaxy" in plenty of Best of 2014 lists. Make no mistake, though: This animated superhero extravaganza is different from the Marvel Studios productions. "Big Hero 6" targets a younger demographic with its PG rating, its huggable robotic hero and its family-friendly approach to setting up the classic oddball good guys vs. scary super villain scenario.

Simply put, "The Book of Life" is probably not what audiences expect. It's better than that.

It's not a cookie-cutter kids' film, with a predictable plot and stock characters. Its animation is not Disneyesque or Pixar-like - in fact, it's something quite unique and unexpected, strikingly innovative and visually stunning. It mercifully exchanges endless one-liners and pop culture references for colorful atypical characters and a compelling narrative woven from threads of Mexican myth, folklore and culture.
