BRAVE movie review

"everybody can change their own fate, you just have to be brave to face it." that would be an inspirational line i heard at the end of Disney and Pixar's latest movie collaboration, BRAVE. which opens today in theaters in 2D and 3D formats.
the story is about Merida, a princess who doesn't act like one. she is passionate about making her own adventures instead of staying inside the castle waiting for a knight or a prince to take her hand. this worries her mother, Queen Elinor, for not acting like a princess for one, setting aside all her plans for Merida. the conflict between mother and daughter raised Merida's anger to her mom and when she gets the chance, she puts magic to change her fate.
despite this conflict, the family keeps intact and she's got the coolest democratic father. King Fergus who leads the kingdom lets his children where they want to go and what they want to do. a perfect opposite of the queen and whom Merida goes very well.
Brave is sure to be a good movie but it just follows all the "prove-yourself" type of stories unlike Up and Wall-E. and here, there's no direct antagonist but herself, making the curse to work. it just signifies that we are our own enemies.

opening in August 1 in the Philippines, Brave scores a new princess through Merida but she's not a damsel in distress. in fact, she may save you from danger. but she's a little stubborn.
