My family and I saw Brave back in the summer. We had anticipated the film for more than a year, and we were not disappointed. The movie is hilarious, moving and filled with excellent animation and storytelling—everything you could ever ask for from Pixar.
If you haven’t seen the movie yet, you have the opportunity to rent or own it now. My husband works in retail so we got a great deal on our copy, but even if you wait to get it previously viewed from your local movie rental store—which is what we usually do to get a bargain—you will be purchasing your family’s new favorite film! It would make a wonderful birthday or holiday gift.
The Blu-ray/DVD copy has lots of fun bonus features, including deleted scenes, an alternate beginning (which wasn’t that impressive itself), and my favorite extras, the various explanations about Scottish culture and language and other movie tidbits. You get to understand what some of the colorful phrases in the movie mean, as well as get a peek at some of the stars of the film speaking their parts.
We have only owned the DVD for less than 24 hours and we’ve already watched it twice! This poignant, funny movie will be my new go-to for noise at night while working for sure (I used to alternate between Stardust, Penelope, and Princess and the Frog). Every time we watch the movie we see something new, or notice another symbol we missed. I can’t recommend it enough.
