Kelly Macdonald who does the voice of the Princess Merida was also recently in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 as the ghost Helena Ravenclaw and Margaret Schroeder in Boardwalk Empire. And, I always enjoy listening to Billy Connolly, either in his stand-up routines or in his acting roles. He brings a fire to any character he plays.

Two words. Haywire.

Brave, though is also favorably looked on the the Good Major's home. Pixar has always been about story.
We have top men working on it...right now.

I am also looking forward to this movie. I have always been interested in medieval times and Scotland. Like the good Major said, Pixar has always been about the story. I'm intrigued.


P.S. Is it just me, or does the King/Dad/Whoever that is, look alot like the father from DreamWorks "How to Train Your Dragon"?

Not sure when it comes out, but I would guess this year, maybe in the spring.

Thank you! Of course I think I'll be too worn out as we are climbing Mt. St. Helens on the 21st. Then again it'll be a good way to sit around and relax in a dark room recovering.

Cheers!

Saw Brave this afternoon. I thought it was pretty good. The storyline was rather tired. Pacing was a bit "iffy". The humor was great. The soundtrack was excellent too.

Don't get me wrong. I liked the movie. From any other studio it would have been one of their crown jewels. But from Pixar? With movies like "The Incredibles", "Up", and "Toy Story"?

But the animation... My word, it was gorgeous. It must be seen to be believed.

Saw this one the other night and thoroughly enjoyed it.

I'll agree. It wasn't Pixar's best work, but I sure enjoyed the hell out of it.

"Be always drunken. Nothing else matters: that is the only question. If you would not feel the horrible burden of Time weighing on your shoulders and crushing you to the earth, be drunken continually. Drunken with what? With wine, with poetry, or with virtues, as you will. But be drunk.. ask what hour it is.. 'It is the hour to be drunken! Be drunken, if you would not be martyred slaves of Time; be drunken continually! With wine, with poetry, or with virtue, as you will.' "

I haven't seen this yet, but from the IMDB trivia section the Pizza Planet Truck is in some "Witch's Hut".

I originally was going to skip this film, only because I despise Reese Witherspoon and refuse to see anything she's attached to. However, seeing that she was replaced, this will be on my list once it hits DVD- my daughter ought to eat this one up. Apart from Cars 2, I've thoroughly enjoyed every Pixar film I've ever seen (and I've seen them all, except for Brave)
