The movie was GOOD. I didn’t know much of what to expect in the way of storyline and was pleasantly surprised. And the soundtrack is gorgeous.
The scenery (and all the animation itself actually) was absolutely beautiful. I miss Scotland and in my mind, it looks *exactly* like that :)
And Merida… her hair! It was a character in itself. I loved her fearlessness and her determination. And anyone that can shoot an arrow already has my heart. I wish I had had a Disney Princess like that when I was little.
The backbone to the story was a mother-daughter relationship which was handled really nicely. And made me want to give my own mother a big cuddle too!
I’m so glad I went and saw it. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect but I wanted to see it to support the movie. I knew it wouldn’t be popular- the trailer promised a simple tale with no quick banter and a feisty girl as the main character. And that’s what I got. It wasn’t perfect but it was perfectly lovely and just what I needed.
