I am shocked there was no thread for this yet. This movie was simply great (as was the short beforehand). It is definitely a wonderful mother/child movie so if you can convince her take your mom to see it (especially if you are female because it is more of a mother/daughter thing). It is kind of a departure from a traditional princess movie because there is no love interest, and in all honesty not really much of a villain (the bear is kind of a villain, but he isn't in it that much). Please go see this movie, you will not be disappointed. It has a lot of heart.

*Edit: I forgot to mention the soundtrack which is breathtakingly beautiful (though admittedly I do love me some Scottish music)

I thought it was good, but not great. Mainly, I thought the bear antagonist was kind of unnecessary for the story they were telling, and took up a little too much screen time. On the other hand, this is one of the most beautiful pictures I've ever seen in my life. This is so far ahead of any other CG animation in terms of rendering textures, it's unbelievable. I literally spent about a quarter of the film just looking at characters' hair.

Absolutely. The hair rendering alone is almost worth the price of admission.

I liked Brave, but it was strange. (backofthehead.com) So many bears.

Loved it - deeply.

Cried at the climax.

Bought the T-shirt and the figurine.

Waiting for the Blu-ray.

I was curious to see a female perspective on this. My girlfriend loved it and she couldn't wait to take her mom to see it. In her opinion Brave is to mother/daughter relationships as Finding Nemo was to father/son.

Saw it last night and quite liked it. I'm not sure if it helped that I had fairly low expectations going in or not. My wife loved it and cried a bit, too. Rather than Finding Nemo, I thought it was more the girl equivalent of Big Fish.

I heard an interview on NPR with the director and she said Pixar had to get all new software to handle the hair.

Brave has a troubled production history. The original director (still credited), Brenda Chapman, was fired from the movie and replaced. (articles.latimes.com) The extra cooks in the kitchen account for some of the tonal weirdness I found in the movie, but Brave still turned out to be very enjoyable.

Welcome home, men of the 2nd Bn, 127th Infantry, 32d "Red Arrow" Brigade, WI Army National Guard! Job well done in Iraq!

Took a nephew to this yesterday.

Visuals were great, plot was kinda stupid. The "oh noes, it didn't work...oh, wait, it did" was kind of a deal-breaker.

Looks beautiful, but can't recommend. Music is darned pretty, though.

I think it started fine but once the twist took place it was just, 'knock somthing over, fall, make growly noise, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat...'

The kids got bored pretty quickly. I think they wanted more of the triplets.

Is it time to start a movement against previews yet? I mis-read the schedule and we got there 25 minutes after the scheduled start time, which was *perfect* timing as it turned out. But man, 25 minutes of commercials and previews is awful when the children buzz through the popcorn and snacks before the movie starts. There's just no way to judge it each time. When I saw Promethius a couple of weeks ago there were maybe 10 minutes of previews but this was pretty bad.

I went to see it with my girlfriend, an admitted Disney mark, and of course she loved it. I liked most of the beginning but when mom turned into the bear, it went off the rails a little for me. And I too would've liked to have seen more hijinks with the three sons. Still, enjoyable for a night out though.

So, I am the only one who thought this was a piece of shite?
Boring, old cliched storyline. No real reason to care about the main character, the ending was obvious, and for a cartoon/childrens/Pixar film, it was void of comedy and heart.

That's a theory I've heard floated around on another board that I'm on - actually, that theory was one of soul absorption, but the general effect is the same. I like the plausibility of the idea.
