John Ary here with a look at Pixar's new movie Brave. While it's beautifully rendered and has the best feminist lead of any Disney movie ever, an unexpected plot twist took me out of the film. The magic [SPOILER] is so out of leftfield, neither the characters (who run the gamut between kind of generic and really generic) or the audience could possibly prepare for it.
You either go along with it or you check out emotionally.
Brave will release here in the states on Friday, June 22. Special thanks to the Alamo Drafthouse for letting me shoot in their lobby. For more video reviews, features, and exclusive content, check out our Youtube channel and you can also follow me on Twitter.
