Brave

Postby BlessedCheesemaker » Sun Feb 26, 2012 1:47 pm

Just saw the newest trailer for this movie. Here it is:



I think this looks promising, Scotland could be a very unique setting. From Disney's website, Merida ends up placing the kingdom in trouble for her actions, and she turns to a witch for help, who grants her an "ill-fated wish." Merida must then discover the meaning of true bravery and undo a beastly curse before it is too late. Only the one part of the trailer bothered me, it reminded me of a certain character from Tangled who could have been left out completely. Hopefully they will keep away from the potty humor.

What do you think? Better than Tangled (yes I know it wasn't Pixar) and Cars 2?
Should Pixar forget about joining the princess empowerment trend and return to the kid friendly classics like Toy Story 1? (joking)

I just saw that trailer for Brave the other day. It gave us a good glimpse of the movie. The advertising hasn't wowed me, but it's a Pixar original, so I know it will be amazing. \:D/

Man, I wasn't excited at all for this movie, but now I am.

Seriously, this is one of the most underhyped Pixar movies of all time.

It has a 71% on the Tomato Meter. Which was... somewhat surprising. Anybody who's seen it care to give a review?

I went to the midnight premiere this morning. While the plot could have stronger, there is a lot to enjoy in this movie. I loved it.

Just saw this movie an hour ago. I can't really say how good it is compared to other Pixar movies yet, because they're all so different.

My mom and I saw it today with the kids and quite enjoyed it! My son, who is 4 1/2, said it was "awesome." And it's mostly about a girl, so that says something. The plot wasn't at all what I thought it was going to be, but then I didn't watch very many trailers for it. I liked the plot, I liked the characters, I loved the setting. The way Pixar can create a world and make it feel lifelike with animation is nothing short of amazing. That's all I'll say since it's the first day and all. ;)

Oh, and the short before the movie is fantastic. \:D/

I saw the movie last night. It was amazing! The animation was beautiful, and the story was interesting and inspiring. The only negative thing (in my opinion) was that there was a witch in two scenes, however the witch was not adored or presented as wise. If the witch has been presented as a "good witch," then I would have been very disappointed with Brave. Thankfully, that was not the case. Brave was a great movie, and I loved almost all of it. :D

Personally, I think that it was frightening at times and could use NO MAGIC, but otherwise, it was a good movie.

I quite enjoyed it.
It had a good plot and kept you on your toes...

HOWVER...

In my opinion, this was simply Disney's atempt at "How to Train Your Dragon," in a way.
First of all, the animation style was fairly similer.
The stories are both about the first born of the leader of the local group of people (in Brave, it was Scottish, in HTTYD, it was Norse) trying to "prove themselves" to both, their parents, and themselves.
They both have to overcome a large beast.
They both figure out why the beats are the way they are.
These reasons, along with several others, have lead me to belive that Disney saw how successful HTTYD was, so they decided they should make something similer to try and have the same success.

Now don't get me wrong, I think it was a good movie with a good lesson, and is fairly high on my list of good movies.
I'm just pointing out some observations that I made.
