It was a rare occasion when Malcolm had a weekday off and all three children were at home. So we thought we'd celebrate the occasion by watching Disney/Pixar's Brave. I dosed myself up with cold and flu tablets as well as a cough suppressant, and headed for the cineams in fear of the crowds that would be there, and the terror of watching a movie with a noisy and restless Jonah.

I needn't have worried. The Disney filled previews and ads had all three children captivated from the very beginning. We watched the movie with no disturbance right to the very end. Hallelujah! I enjoyed the movie. To be honest, it wasn't quite what I expected, but even I myself am not sure what I was expecting. It was nice to watch a movie set in Scotland, and the accents were great fun to listen to. And as much as I am a big fan of Disney's princes, it was great to have a plot which didn't involve one. The plot though, still seemed just a touch weak to me. Having said that, I still rate way above Snow White and The Huntsman...I struggled to stay awake during the movie due to the ingestion of medications so take my review with a pinch of salt. Who knows how accurately my senses were functioning?
