Brave

For years Pixar and Disney has been the most formidable team in bringing great 3D-Animated films. Pixar has raised the bar in 3D-Animated movies making other studios come up with their own hits. However, what separates Pixar from studios like Dreamworks and Universal is the rich plot which is usually coupled with intelligent humor and lovable characters. Last year, Pixar misses the hit when they released a sequel of a moderately received film, Cars. This year, they opted to surprise us with a film that seems to defy the usual portrait of a princess that Disney has since Snow White.

Merida is a free spirited princess of Scotland who is betrothed to one of his father's allied clans which her mother organized so willingly to fulfill her duties as a princess, however, Merida feels the other way. Merida wants to control her own destiny and be the princess she wants to be. This lead to a series of events that led her to be able to alter her destiny by changing her mother into something else.

Brave tackles a very personal plot between mother and child in the film. The relationship between Merida and the Queen is very tangible as the plot progresses. The personal touch of the film makes it a success and follows the same formula with one of Pixar's greatest film: Wall-E. The film has a right amount of humor that goes well with the plot. Although this is the first film from Pixar that resorted to juvenile comedy, this is overshadowed by wholesome humor.

Brave also made an impact with their female characters which depicted a very strong personality. Merida is strong enough to defy tradition while the Queen is able to take control of her husband.

Brave has successfully relayed its message and becomes one of the most important films Pixar has made. With this film, Pixar was able to rise from the downfall of Cars 2 last year. Brave is not the typical Princess fantasy that Disney has offered its viewing public. Younger kids may find it hard to relate with the film but it will be a hit to teens and parents.

GRADE: A-

P.S. Pixar's short film La Luna is one of the best shorts since Night and Day.
