Now Available For Home Viewing

To say that I enjoyed a movie about Scotland, heavy horses, archery, magic, folklore, wildlife and fighting to follow your heart would be an understatement. Brave was a joy. You can get it now in any way you desire, from DVD to digital downloads. Alba Gu Brath, Mac.

I loved that this focused almost entirely on the relationships between women. The marriage conflict was just a way to throw it into highlight.

This looks fun - and will remind me of Scottish holidays when my children were small. They missed a chance to use a Clydesdale as one of the heavy horses though the Shire is verra good . . . The burial chamber at the end reminds me very much of our iconic Welsh one, Pentre Ifan, in the shadow of Carn Ingli, whose outline it is supposed to mimic (according to Shanks and Tilley anyway).

Wanted to see it in theatres but having a baby means we don't get out much. But we picked up a copy yesterday and watched it last night. Loved it!

We're planning to watching Sunday night for our family-movie-night with our 2 boys. Been waiting to see it since it was in the theater--absolutely love the plight of the suppressed female, and the brothers in this movie remind me of my own boys. My husband's family are heavily Scottish, so there's a special affinity for this film.

So, today I was out shopping and guess what I saw? A full on collection of dolls from Brave(including one with a horse) AND a child sized bow and arrow set!!! I almost bought it. For me. Obviously way to small for me to use but I was so tempted.

I found the ending very dissatisfying. I wanted to like the movie a lot more than I did. I felt the ending did not fit with the person the star had become by the end of the movie. I realize I am in the minority.

I found the ending very unsatisfying. I didn't think it fit with the rest of the movie. I realize I am in the minority. I'm all for strong, spunky female characters, though.

shrlckhlms - I just saw the movie, and I'm curious about your reaction. What didn't feel right? Would you have liked to see her go off on her own somewhere?

I felt like the real climax was the mother's change of heart. Everything after that was just tying up loose plot points. I enjoyed the movie over all.

Why didn't her bow burn when her mother tossed it in the fire?
