See it if you like…
Scottish princess of the old days, Merida wants to break free of tradition has to undo a spell a witch casted that has corrupted her future.
What I’ve heard
I’ve read a lot of reviews of people saying this movie is the WORST Pixar film to date (“Worse than Cars 2” har har). I’ve heard it’s not interesting and is a dumb story and that they just play-up the whole “Scottish thing”.
What I saw
Not going to lie. The first time I heard Billy Connolly’s voice in the previews, I was determined to see it. I love his acting, I love his voice… ever since Muppet Treasure Island. But I digress.
This is very much a visual-based movie. But I can see why people are unimpressed. The story takes a wild turn about 45 minutes in where her mom is a bear… say what? Yep, a bear. I am worried that people who say it’s the worst Pixar movie are just pissy because it’s not an animated feature about personified objects.
Seriously though, you have to give Pixar credit for making their first female protagonist and a period piece. Not bad for their first try!
I think if you want to see a movie about a girl rebelling against tradition and kind of enjoy the Scottish heritage (I mean really, all I knew about Scots is from Braveheart, and I’m not alone), this is the movie for you!
The best/most interesting part is
This movie is under 1.5hrs so there isn’t much to choose. My favorite line is when a servant tells the dad (Billy Connelly) that she saw a bear after he’d been sniffing one out for a few minutes. He jumps in the air, throws her to the side, and screams “YES! I knew it!” and runs off. You had to be there.
Bet you didn’t even know…
True to Pixar films, the Pizza Planet truck can be seen in the witch’s den/hut/living place.
But don’t take my word for it… What’d you think?
