I agree that there was alot of lost potential but I do love this movie because usually in Disney type movies the girls are drop dead gorgeous and marry handsome and rich princes. I like the change up of her being an average girl who doesn't need to be married to be happy. It gives a better message to kids today who are way to worried with their looks and dating 'the hottest kid in school'. There should be more movies like this but once again it didn't reach it's full potential so I give it about a b+ or a-.

I was kind of disappointed I think the B- rating is fair. I wish it was focused on trying to be an "epic" I agree, lost opportunity, it could of been so much better but ended up being just decent and forgettable.

I just saw it today, and although I didn't expect greatness, I was still disappointed because it really had the potential to be a great movie, but the plot wasn't large enough for the scale that the film presents.

I'm just wondering if the 3D is worth the extra money for a family of 4. I have been disappointed in the past.

IMHO, you should NOT spend the extra money for the 3D version. "Brave" does have some beautiful visuals, but there's nothing special about the 3D effects.

Completely agree. Great movie to take your kids to, yet doesn't live up to Pixar's usual standard.

Richard, your post says "B" but you gave Brave a "B-" in your video- just in case you were unaware.

Hi Jordan,

We fixed it, thanks for the heads-up!

I hope is good enough for my wife and kids who are talking about this movie all year. Even my wife want to get that crazy red hair, lol. I love Pixar's Monster's Inc, The Incredibles, Bug's Life but nothing like the Toy Story series. I found Nemo a very typical father and son adventure, nothing special besides the animation. Ratatouille is Ok. Up and Wall-E were cute but not awesome. I like Cars but Cars 2 bored me to dead. Hoping Brave please me!
