Movie Review: Brave

Another Pixar winner.

The animation was on par w/ their previous ones. The characters were definitely animated but the scenery was almost indistinguishable from real life.  The 3D effects gave me a few instances of vertigo.

Story:  Started out fairly cookie cutter. Princess who doesn't fit the mold and takes steps.  Finds a witch to cast a spell.  You know the drill.

Then it takes a turn for the surreal w/ the usual Pixar bizarre humor thrown in to the mix. Some definite darker characters than in previous films.

I took all three of the powers and they sat enraptured during the entire film, including 5thpower who is 4 1/2.

Definitely worth a theater visit and will be rented to catch whatever I missed the first time through.

This movie was, indeed, fantastic. This was probably the best "empowered woman" movie since Labyrinth. And now that I think about it, it somewhat resembles Dealing With Dragons by Patricia C. Wrede.
