Brave
2012
Scottish princess Merida uses her archery skills to establish her independence, but when she accidentally angers the ancient land's three powerful lords and is granted a poorly conceived wish by a witch, she must go on a quest to repair the damage.

Erik Bates: “It ruled.”

I'm a sucker for a good Disney / Pixar film, and Brave is no exception. Most compelling of this story is that it finally focuses on the "princess" not trying to find true love, but rather on her trying to be her own person with her own hopes and dreams while fighting to reconcile such a break from the traditional roles with her tradition-bound mother. Sexual orientation conspiracy theorists be damned, this movie is not traditional Disney, and I love it all the more for that.

Evie Totty: “It ruled.”

Pixar has, of course, done it again. I even went to see this movie with a bunch of adults. Not even my 15 year old (at the time) would come see it with me.

Very much a lesson of 'be careful what you wish for' ... and appreciate what you have. And of course there were some scene-stealing characters that made you LOL.

I was glad at the end that the main character not only learned her lesson but so did her parents.

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

Another fine film by Pixar: Not deep enough to qualify as one of their very best, but much better than its mediocre reputation, and more than entertaining for adults. As usual with Pixar's films, I was impressed by the little touches of slapstick business in the corners of the frame and by the sudden moments of emotional resonance, and also a little annoyed by the showing off of complex animation technique for its own sake. What a great voice cast of Scottish comic actors!
