Wow, been a long time, but I am slowly getting back into shape with the radio. This week I managed to see the “cashing in on Twilight” movie Beautiful Creatures. Surprisingly, it’s actually better made, shot for shot, than Twilight, and the characters feel more real (which isn’t actually hard). The problem arises when we get boggled down in book-lore and Jeremy Irons and Emma Thompson try to make it a little too epic. It still gets an agreeable dice roll 3.

Old review: Brave
Since I didn’t get to see any film premiers this week, I thought I’d review a film I saw a while ago and didn’t write about. Pixar’s Brave.
Set in a fantasy version of Scotland, Brave stars the young princess Merida (voice by Kelly MacDonald) who is the rebellious type. Although she has a good relationship with her father Fergus (instantly recognizable as Billy Connolly), and her three rascal brothers, she does have problems with her manner-obsessed mother (Emma Thompson). Hating the idea of being forced to marry one of the sons of the three other clans, she comes across a witch who offers a spell to change her fate by changing her mother. If you know Disney you will immediately know that some things are too good to be true, which is exactly the case when the mother is indeed changed, into a bear.
