Brave

So this week we took Chloe to see brave.  It started out a little disappointing--we had dinner over at my parents, so I wasn't able to go home in between work and the movie, so I wasn't able to change into my kilt beforehand.  Otherwise I would have.

Brave is a Pixar film years in the making.  They developed two separate programs to help control the movement of hair.  Knowing that helped me appreciate that particular aspect more, but if I hadn't known, I wouldn't have noticed anything.

I see a kilt and I'm happy, so of course I'm going to be a little biased towards the movie.  While I'm not a feminist, neither am I a "barefoot, pregnant, and in the kitchen" type of guy, so it was nice to see a heroine who wasn't obsessed with finding a husband.  Bravo to Pixar for emphasizing that element while still maintaining the importance of family.

The movie had a darker tone than I had expected.  Not quite what I was expecting when I took my 3-year old.  She enjoyed it, but not as much as she did other movies we've taken her to.  If she was a little older, I think she would have liked it more.


Brave is a good movie.  The moral of the story is how important family is.  Brave is not a great movie for very young audiences, but older kids will definitely enjoy it, especially girls.
