After the disappointment of ‘Cars 2‘, Pixar could really use an unqualified success to restore its reputation as the best animation studio working today. Unfortunately, this weekend’s release of the Scottish fairy tale ‘Brave’ opened to decidedly mixed reviews. Were you among the Pixar faithful who trekked out to theaters to see the film? Did you and/or your kids enjoy it? Or does this Pixar entry not interest you at all? Tell us your thoughts in our poll.
I have not seen the film yet, and so will not cast judgment on it. What I can say is that the trailers don’t look anywhere near as bad as ‘Cars 2’, yet also have not excited me enough to run out and catch this in theaters. I think that I can safely wait for Blu-ray and not feel like I’m missing out on much.
Is that fair? Is the movie a lot better than it looks? Or is Luke’s lukewarm assessment pretty much accurate?
