#FamilyMovieNight this past weekend was Brave, which I haven’t seen since it was in theaters — and I feel like this film has to be older than 2012, but that’s maybe just me getting old.
I remember being a little lukewarm on this film, so I was pleasantly surprised that it exceeded my memory; I enjoyed the whole ride and was tearing up at the end.
That said, I can see that it suffers a bit in comparison to some other Pixar films. There is something that drags a bit once the bear transformation takes place, and I don’t feel like any of the performances beyond Merida and the Queen are all that memorable.
Also: did his film start the archery craze? The Hunger Games came out the same year, right?
My son seemed to enjoy it and was only scared a little bit in some of the Mordu scenes. I have a feeling the antics of the triplets were probably his favorite bits.
lastly, I dunno if Merida can be considered a Disney Princess, but if so, she’s my favorite.
