My daughter loved that guy.15- Brave This one has always struck me as weird When I think back on Brave, it feels more like a Disney film than Pixar, and adding to that confusion is that they made Merida an official Disney Princess after its release While stunning to look at, the whole story with turning[...]

This was my first time exhibiting at this particular MCM, held in the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, UK. Indeed, it was my first time exhibiting in Birmingham, period.

John Lasseter's Personal Tribute To Steve Jobs

Pixar's Brave – The Bleeding Cool Review

And that clearly includes most of Pixar too.There's been lots of evidence of the love affair between John Lasseter's lot and Hayao Miyazaki's mob over the years, but none of it as charming, and convincing as Brave, Pixar's next.Because an even more sincere form of flattery than imitation is breathing in an influence until it[...]

Brave Clip Called Tart Thieves Offers Up A Sweet Pie Heist

This clip is short and to the point, and shows off the silent comedy stylings of Pixar's Brave, one of its hitherto undersold aspects of appeal.There's a lot more to Brave than the trailers have let on I've yet to see how it all resolves, but pending a good pay-off, I think this is going[...]

Another Trailer For Pixar's Brave, And A Nice New Clip Too

I wrote a few words about Pixar's Brave for Bleeding Cool magazine at the end of last week Not many words, mind, but a little something about the thirty-minute preview of the film I saw last month.Basically, I was saying that it looks really great And a bit like a Ghibli film.This new trailer has[...]
