Saw "Brave." Love Merida. Wish the movie was just a little better.

    I enjoyed it a great deal as did all my kids. Even including my 14 year old son who went along only with promises of popcorn and candy.

    I loved that there was no love story there (other than between a mother and daughter). Disney has added a great Princess to the line-up and one that isn't waiting for a prince to rescue her. That's a message I like my girls to see and hear.

    All that said, I'd agree that the plot was thin and could have been improved, but I'd still give the movie an overall :thumbsup2

    I agree with numerous other posters who said that the real gem in the event is La Luna. I had a huge smile on my face through the whole thing and turned to my husband at the end and said I was thoroughly enchanted by that.

    I really liked it, and my DS (8) loved it. In fact, he keeps asking when the DVD will be out. I really like that the princess and the mom actually love each other, and have a real relationship. But it is the first Disney movie I can remember where the princess doesn't end up married at the end. :thumbsup2

    While not as good as some Pixar movies, it is miles better than others. For example, it is no Toy Story (1, 2 or 3) or Monsters, Inc. but it is so much better than either Cars movie.

    The short, La Luna, while cute, was not as good as some of the others.

    I watched the movie twice, once in regular and another in 3-D. I loved it! ^^
    • Merida and her family were relatable to me and a lot of fun to watch.
    • The story is great, even though it's similar to 'Brother Bear.'
    • The music is one of the best I've heard. Really immersed me into the setting!
    • Speaking of which, the setting looks very nice and very realistic. Every single detail in the backgrounds felt like I was really in Scotland. It was just eye-popping and incredible! OwO
    Overall, it's a great movie, one of the best from Pixar. ^^
