Highlights: 2012's Most Underrated Film... Brave.

Pixar has got a lot of flak for choosing a "princess" story for their first film with a female protagonist, but that criticism misses the point. Brave wasn't just any other princess story. It had grander ideas and twisted our expectations of the subgenre on its head. I would love to elaborate on the idea, but nothing I say can be as eloquent and all-encompassing as this brilliant piece by Lili Loofbourow of The New Inquiry. I urge you to read it and give Brave another shot if it didn't work for you the first time around.

  1. I'm so eager to revisit this when I have the time. As I've confessed I like it more than allegedly "great" Pixar and it's just gorgeous.

    Also, I adore Kelly MacDonald (and of course, Emma).

  2. I love your blog and it has helped me look a little harder. Thanks
