Slightly more mature Pixar
I'm liking this slightly more mature Pixar. In the same lines of Up, Brave gives us a story that is not a slapstick junk fest but a slightly more serious plot.
Apparently all these people who complain how this movie is a rip off of Mulan and Brother Bear don't overly remember those movies. It seems that people love to complain that there aren't enough female, strong leads in children's films but then when they get one compare it to something that it barely resembles.
You get the plot by now, a young Scottish woman wishes to not be married off and in a fit of anger, seeks a spell to change her fate. Of course the spell goes array and we end up with bears in a castle.
It is darker, especially the middle and end where our Merida is often put in life threatening situations. With so many kids movies relying on stupid old jokes, slap stick moments, and bodily function jokes...I'm glad we have a movie like Brave.
And it is nice to finally have a Disney movie where the female doesn't end up tying the knot. Pretty much every movie they crank out, even claiming a strong independent female lead, they always fall in love and get married and POOF happy ever after. There is too much sugar coated junk out there for kids...
Brave gives us a serious, slightly dark Scottish tale steeped in magic and has a few giggles.
