Synopsis: Princess Merida refuses to be married off as tradition would have it, and decides to take fate into her own hands when she uses a spell from an absent minded witch.
Reasoning: In true Pixar fashion, the leading heroine was one stressed out damsel who felt burdened by society’s outdated traditions. Unfortunately for Brave, everything else about this film was in true Pixar fashion, in other words it was fairly cliche.Initially, I expected a traditional Pixar flick with the classic knight in his sparkly armor dashing in to save his damsel, that of course is half way done saving herself. Then I herd about this amazing plot twist, and I felt intrigued.
Once I saw the film, I felt hoodwinked. What the fuck? I’m not exactly sure what amazing plot twist the rest of the film industry is talking about, because I was able to predict ever turn in the plot. There wasn’t even enough funny “adult jokes” in this film for me. I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t love it. For me it’s a film to see on a Saturday night, when I have no social life WHAT SO EVER.
Theater Reaction: Every dad in the theater was giggling more than the kid sitting next to him.
Conclusion: Buy The Ticket*
