Went to see Brave (2D) last week. I actually rather enjoyed it. I'm not one for liking something just because it's 'wherever-you-came-from', or whetever, but I would be lying if I said I didn't think it was pretty cool that it was Scotland. I think some of the Scottishness added to my enjoyment. Yeah, bits of the Caledonia collective felt a bit too contrived, (yeah, it's all contrived, it's a movie DUH me), but I guess most of Scottishland was like that in that time; and it's nothing to get worked up about in a kiddy film! I genuinely laughed numerous times. The animation is super splendor, as always; especially the Scottish landscape, which lends itself well to the Pixar lads.
I definitely got more of a sense of Disney than Pixar, that's not a bad thing, just a comment. I liked the more unique take on the Princess revovlement, not just the 'handsome Prince', fall in love, etc. The anthropomorphized bear stuff creeped me out a bit, but that's nothing Ursa Major, (see what I did there?). All in all, one for most of the fam. I might say "best childrens animation movie of the year so far", but, I don't think I've seen many more?
The animated short, La Luna, that preceeded Brave, was awfully sweet. And really worth half the price of an Orange Wednesday ticket by itself.
