Great movie for all ages and all kinds. Pixar movies tend to all have a moral lesson blended in with their storytelling and this movie is no exception. Animation is breathtaking along with its adorable 7 minute short that precedes Brave. If you are a fan of Pixar then I would highly doubt that you would be disappointed with its latest offering. After the movie was over everyone gave it an ovation which is always delightful when pixar is involved. Last movie that I experienced an ovation was the Lion King rerelease and I have seen a lot of movies since then. I applaud pixar for its original storytelling and not being influenced by whats out there and taking a chance on something unique and different. I think thats part of the reason their their product is always successful, very much in the foundation of Apple and Steve Jobs, they pave the path and others walk down it. Thought it was very heartfelt that at the end of the movie it was dedicated to Steve Jobs.

I saw Brave the other night with my daughter and enjoyed the movie. I found the movie to be entertaining. Before seeing the movie, I heard mixed reviews and that the movie was a bit controversial. I think the overall story line was positive, that girls are strong and should be allowed to develop their interests. Also, the movie reinforced that mothers and daughters may have conflict, but that mothers have valuable wisdom to pass along to daughters. The imagery was terrific. I didn't rate this movie must go because I am not crazy about magic and spells. But, I must say it was a minor part of the movie. Bottom line is that I thought this was a family movie.

Well, first of all I liked the movie. My wife and daughter liked it a lot more than me, so maybe I'm over analyzing everything. But I know when I left the theater after seeing Up, or Wall-ee, or Toy Story, I was left with a lot of themes to think about. That's what I expect when I see a Pixar movie. But here, we have the Disney-young-and-fiery-female-lead (think Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Rapunzel, Mulan, Pocahontas) model trying to break free of parental authority and be the free spirit they are meant to be. So we have a pedestrian, road-worn script and direction stuffed into the gorgeous palette of Pixar animation and setting. The voice talents were fine. I'm a fan of Kelly Macdonald, and could listen to her read the telephone book. But I didn't leave the theater in wonder, like I usually do after seeing a Pixar movie. I liked the movie for what it was, and I truly appreciate the beautiful job on the animation. But I found the story lacking.
