So, on Saturday I saw Disney*Pixar's BRAVE. It was really, really good! Here's my review on it:
This will contain spoilers, so I'll let you know when one is coming up. :)
|Adorable baby Merida!|
I think they did really well on her character! I liked how she wasn't your stereotypical rebellious teen, and not your average princess. Going off to "change her fate" and being this huge tomboy really stood out to me in a good way. She's really relate able in the way that she's not this perfect, beautiful, flawless sugarplum. She had brains, which I respect! It was great how you could see the gradual incline in her family ties. The fights she had with her mom got a little heated though, and it wasn't the best how she SPOILER- tried to actually go and change her mom with a spell instead of working it out. END OF SPOILER
She definitely played a good but strict mother. She showed undying love for her daughter, and forgave her after she SPOILER- got turned into a bear accidentally by Merida. END OF SPOILER I appreciated how she developed a strong relationship with Merida and began to see eye to eye with her, and even changed herself a bit. I really can't think of any problems or things that irked me about her character, just that she seemed a bit over the top sometimes with her expectations for Merida.
King Fergus was absolutley hilarious! I laughed whenever he came on screen. He reminds me of my dad. :) One of the most fun characters in the movie!!
(Hamish, Hubert and Harris)
I loved this trio, even if they didn't have a single line the whole movie! :} They had a few crude parts in the movie I was not so happy about. But these rascals were sure fun the watch!
I would advise if you are prone to nightmares or hate scary images, I would either cover my eyes during the bear sequences or think twice about viewing this movie. And as much as I reccomend and like this movie, I was fairly disappointed at some of the crude humor. I wish they had not put in some of the cleavage jokes and insolent scenes. The "cleaness " in this film was about a 3 out of 5. :/
So, overall, I would give this movie a 4 out of 5 stars. The animation and overall theme were awesome!! Plus, I'm more than 25% Scottish, so this was a real kick for me. :) My great grandma is very Scottish, accent and all, and she calls us girls her "wee hens", and uses all these Scot terms.
Very fun movie! Really enjoyed this.
