On "Brave"

From The Dispatch:
"Brave" has all the trappings of a solid children's film — it's an endearing mother/daughter fable with the visual grandeur to sweep the audience off its feet into a mystical realm of Celtic myth and legend. Unfortunately it doesn't have the strength to fully stick the landing, relying too heavily on a thin plot twist that lacks emotional weight and resonance. Perhaps it is unfair of us to expect Pixar to hit it out of the park every single time it steps up to the plate, and even though "Brave" is a solid triple, it still feels like a bit of a letdown in the shadow of its distinguished predecessors.
