Brave

closeHey, just so you know ... this post is now about 7 years and 2 months old. Please keep that in mind as it very well may contain broken links and/or outdated information.

After seeing “Cars 2” last summer, I lamented that it lacked the depth, imagination, and emotion I have come to expect from Pixar’s films. I wondered at the time if their next film would re-capture that spirit

It has.

Brave” is amazing to look at, the story is entertaining, and the characters aren’t toys, cars, fish, rats, or robots (but yes, okay, there are a few bears). Even the “La Luna” short before the film was the kind of touching story that can be told without any dialog. Merida is sure to be popular addition to Disney’s princesses, although this princess carries a bow and arrow.

I didn’t catch any easter eggs this time around, but looking at the (short) list they weren’t that obvious anyway (I did catch Ratzenberger’s name in the credits at least). I was surprised we were the only ones who stayed through the end of the credits to see the “end” of the movie.

Next up is another sequel: “Monsters University.”

My final question is: who do I have to “thank” for there being two popular movies this year (targeted at young girls) that involve archery?
