Wreck-It Ralph, coming out in a few months, looks like I can be a pretty cool movie. Hopefully it will be. Disney Animation doing it and all.

Middle school is an odd stage where a lot of kids start to go through their growth-spurt / puberty stages. There's the room for "social" interactions that become irrelevant in the high school years. The high school years every kids likes to think he is at the top of his game, and that all his friends there are there forever. Bowling every Friday night, going to movies with that special someone, going to homecoming and the prom - how could life get any better? But then he graduates, and realizes how pointless a lot of his high school experiences were. Now he has a job, goes to college and has a car that can drive anywhere he wants. As the young adult with the brain just about fully developed, he realizes his true friends in life are not the ones he's known the longest, but the ones that are there. High school was a good foundation for this young man for developing life-long experiences, but these high school days are far surpassed by what's to come. So to all you kids currently in high school: enjoy it while it lasts, but don't expect the way you are now to be who you will be later on. It's a good start for discovering yourself in the year's to come.

I lost my innocence early in high school when I started hanging out with friends whom of which partook in naughty things that parents would not approve of. Or perhaps things started earlier in life. What's the typical age a child ponders on pornography? I guess, to say the least, our lives go through a series of stages that change us, and we are not entirely defined based off of just one incident.

Maybe it's just my luck, but most girls I've been with prefer me NOT pay for every goddamned thing, and they're more than willing to pitch in as well. My most recent relationship it worked in a trade-off structure. By that I mean, say, one day I buy us alcohol - and then the next day she offers buying me dinner. It's not because I expect her to buy me dinner, but because she wants to buy me dinner. In a way I feel that's a nicer way to have a relationship because it shows a mutual interest in supporting each other, both ends.

I knew it would suck when I first saw the trailers for it. It seems so lame and unexciting. It doesn't seem to have that wonderful, fuzzy feeling that some of Pixar's previous films, such as UP and Toy Story had.

It has a higher rating than Prometheus, bro.

Only Brave is actually has a worthwhile story and likable characters. Prometheus has no redeemable qualities besides its visuals.

I think Brave is on par with some of Pixar's earlier efforts pre-The Incredibles. That being said, it is a heartfelt film like any Pixar film is, but it also has a heavy dose of humor that is something that I found more relatable to the slapstick in a film like Monsters, Inc.

With that said, I thought Brave was a wonderful film. It may not be the most unpredicable film, but the message it is trying to get across is what I found to be most lovely. I feel like people are stuck-up over the idea that, if it's not unpredictable, then it's not passable. Bull. What's most striking is HOW Merida's relationship with her Mother evolves. We already know what's going to happen, but it was until I found out HOW things between the two of them are changing that made me all giddy. That's where all the magic happens.

I would go far with saying Brave is definitely a different kind of film from Pixar, but different is a good thing. At the same time, it does not stray too far away from the Pixar finesse that it will leave people in the dust.

I'm definitely going to see it again in theaters, but right now I say it's definitely a worthy Pixar film no matter what a tomato messuring device says.

I honestly felt more like

[spoiler] The mother only realized after she sent her daughter running off crying that she may have overreacted with throwing her bow in the fire and that she was not in the right for burning something Merida cherishes. [/spoiler]

But that's an interesting thought you got there.

I do like the minimalism. I think the Witch had just the right amount of screentime. She's a mysterious hag, no one really knows much about her other than the fact that she's a witch and that she can mess your life up if you mess with her. All of that was said and done. No complaints from me.

I just got back from Brave. It gets my approval. At first I was going with "wow wow wow... This aint no Pixar film. o.O" because it felt like something more along the lines of a Disney Animation film than a Pixar production, but once the movie kicked in I loved it. It definitely felt like a Pixar movie as it progressed. There was quite a bit of slapstick humor throughout, but nothing that I found unbearable. I think the base of why some critics are giving it dud ratings is because of, A) The story is not as whimsical as previous Pixar efforts, and B) too much slapstick humor. I can speak for the first criticism: I definitely would not say the story is as whimsical as a floating house, or as bizarre as a human-controlling rat, but the story gets tense in the way a Pixar film gets and heartfelt the way Pixar films gets. Maybe it does not get quite as heartfelt as Up or Toy Story 3, but it definitely gave me the chilling moments that get me to love the characters. As far as the humor goes, I guess it really depends on your brand, but I would say it pretty much is Pixar branded humor, but maybe more of it than you would usually expect in a Pixar film... I would definitely say Pixar is on the right track after Cars 2. If critics can't agree with it, then so be it. I say go out and see it if you're a fan of Pixar movies.
