Brave (2012)

Rating: 8/10

Princess Merida is trying to change her fate. Her mother and father want her to marry a prince from one of the neighboring kingdoms as a tradition among the kingdoms, one that Merida hopes to break. Perhaps there’s some kind of magic she could use to accomplish her goal?

Pixar has shown that they know how to craft a film. They can really make something for everyone. This film might not stand out amongst their amazingly impressive body of work, but this is still a great film nonetheless.

The animation stands out, as all animation does for Pixar at the time of their film’s releases, but this still looks great even today. The story is as well crafted as all their stories and quite original in its own way.

My only real complaint is the music. I think some of it works for the parts their used for but others just fall flat for fitting the tonality of the scene it’s used in.


+7.5: Pretty good all around movie

+1: Animation is top notch, like always for Pixar

-0.5: Music doesn’t quite work in places

  1. I liked Brave but it didn’t seem to be a widely loved film, or some giant tentpole franchise that I’m sure Disney would hope for every time Pixar makes anything. ^_^ Only saw it once myself and the music I can’t really recall much either. Touch the Sky is a good great song at least. At a glance I did see it grossed over $500 million, won the bafta, globe, and oscar for animation, and has pretty nice reviews.


    1. Actually, the first time I saw it I still thought it was good but there was something I didn’t quite like about it but I can’t tell you what it was. I’ve seen it many times since then and I like it quite a bit now, but if you asked me right after coming out of the theater I probably would have told you I didn’t enjoy it very much. Maybe it’s just one of those films that’s better on the smaller screen? It’s a good film though and worthy of multiple viewings.
