Brave 2012 [Movie Review]

Hello Everyone,

thanks to Nuffnang and Disney Studios Singapore, Baby and I had the opportunity to catch the gala premiere of the movie, “Brave” at the Grand Cathay.

Having collected the tickets, we headed to the washroom to freshen ourselves up and we kinda like the way they put up the Male & Female toilet posters to indicate the direction to the Male & Female toilets respectively.

This particular movie premiere that we attended was unlike many of the ones we attended before. In fact, there were games organised before the movie premiere and well, Baby and I had a go at some of the game stations.

So.. there’s this mini Tug-of-War station that only can accommodate a maximum of 4 players.

And so I participated in a one-on-one challenge with a fellow movie-goer and I lost!

There were Wii stations set up where we could test our archery skills.

Since we had quite alot of time to kill, I decided to try the Wii station.

And I concluded that I pretty much suck at Archery.

There was also a photobooth that was set-up for this event and well, Baby and I were quite enthusiastic about it [or I think it was only me whom was enthusiastic]

Having tried all the games and activities, we then journeyed to the cinema hall where we had the chance to catch the movie, “Brave” before anyone else in Singapore [except those whom were invited of course]

Movie Review:

Baby and I felt that the movie was fantastic and it is very family-oriented. As such, the movie is quite suitable for children and it is perfect for family gatherings/outings especially during the upcoming National Day. I am not sure if teenagers would fancy this sort of movie but Baby and I enjoyed it alot. Also, the movie teaches children about values and we feel that it is an ideal movie for wholesome content. If you are looking for a movie to watch during the upcoming National Day, do check out the movie, “Brave“! By the way, the movie will only be released on the 8th of August 2012.

Movie Plot [extracted from Golden Village]:

Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland. In “Brave,” a new tale joins the lore when the courageous Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts. Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (voice of Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (voice of Emma Thompson). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (voice of Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (voice of Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (voice of Robbie Coltrane). Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Wise Woman (voice of Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late.
