He is certainly my favorite character from Brave. And this scene is also one of the bests. The movie itself didn't really impressed me.

I loved the movie, much better than any other disney or pixar film. I still like Guardians and Wreck it, but I hate it when ppl diss this movie and say it was not 'impressive' to them. well its damn well impressive when they finally make a princess who isnt helpless and needs a prince and something to save her. and it was a bonus that there was no musical numbers. it was funny, it was warming, when her mom was about to die got me tensed, the movie sure moved me, unlike most of pixar and such. Merida and Fergus were my favorites too lol and its a shame most ppl dont see how this movie won the oscar.

I think the movie really stands out, especially that the relationships between family (mother and daughter in the movie) and that theres no flirty stuff between a prince and a princess. That's what makes this movie stand out and be so special

that scene is just so awesome right ?
i thought the movie was a really good movie for kids...it was funny and it adresses family conflicts and the ability to compromise instead of flirty romance.
opposed to soooooooooooo many other movies it shows that communication is vital for family life, how there are always two sides to a matter and how its not always for the best to only see the own wants.

wreck-it-ralf was an awesome movie, there is no questioning it, it had everything but brave had its own charme and still delivers more of an message than ariel and sleeping beauty ever could.

I agree...I like some of Brave... But to be honest it was the few of Pixars that didn't impress me... Normally they do some amazing movie that outshines Disneys Movies,but this time Wreck-it-Ralph and Tangled completely outshined this movie. It wasn't fluent and felt short like something was missing... However I do like Merida and her Father, they were good.

I you I love Him but hate the film. I mean come on how the hell did this trash get the oscar over Guardians? Oh I know it was because it's A Pixar film, it doesn't matter if the film stinks it wins because it's Pixar. Grrr it makes me sick.

it got an oscar over guardians because the guardians never changed, and never questioned their way of thinking...
they even only got to jack as they needed his help, not because they thought : poor kid might go insane beeing ignored by everyone.
they never questioned his missbehavior as a cry to be seen...in short they were total assholes...
seeing how pitch had the same problem as jack just for way longer...no wonder he went of the deep end ...
aaaand its funny how the guardians think that banishing fear is good for the kids when fear is vital for caution and ultimately survival...

in short, even so the movie was fun to watch, the characters are blant because there is no emotional development and the message is scewed because there is not one reference that fear useful ( watching horror movies to cuddle up to a date )or even fun (watching horror movies with some firends for example)

there is just no message...even so there could have easily been one...like dont ignore people, it hurts and brings mentally scars, fear is needed but dont let it dictate your live...something like that....

that it only seems to be "wow" because it was made by pixar says enough about the quality...in my mind...

you could have worded your statement also: if the very same movie would have been made by another company it wouldn't be "wow"...

well...of course the king was funny...the brothers were cute too...
merida could have used a bit more character...or a more forcefull opponent...what the movie has on emotional development it lacks in characters 

its sad that in the end both movies could have been so much more than they actually have been.

dreamworks and pixar had such promising starts and ideas and just fu**** it up.

maybe they should have worked together...pixa brings the emotional development and dreamworks the character traits...

He's definitely my favorite character as well. He and Merida at the games reminded me so much of myself and my dad in church--complete with Mom turning and shushing or scolding both of us.

I immediately noticed the similarities between Brave and Brother Bear. But there were also enough differences that it didn't ruin the storyline for me. They lampshade the parallels between the fishing scene and Brother Bear's Welcome to Our Family Time scene in the commentary. But other than that, I didn't see any similarities that were so glaring as to be distracting. Brave does something no Disney film before really has. It deals directly with setting aside your pride for love. And not romantic love, either. Familial love, in this case, and it does it very well. Love is selfless, and there is no room in a loving heart for selfish pride. Brother Bear dealt mainly with overcoming prejudice, which is just one form of pride, and used bears to represent love, but the idea that love is selfless doesn't really come across that well compared to Brave (even when you take into account Sitka's sacrifice). It's especially poignant in Brave as they're all Scottish. And five of the royal family are redheads. Which means they have fiery tempers and fierce pride that they'd almost rather die for than give up. For Merida to humble herself and admit to her selfishness and wrongdoing was, in a way, counter-cultural. And THAT is why the movie is called Brave.

This scene was funny, just because it seemed to admit that yes, "rebellious princess who doesn't want an arranged marriage" is a cliché and we know how it's supposed to play out. :giggle:

I guess what I like about this movie is that it tries to deconstruct the clichés: the princess' refusal is depicted as stubborn rather than totally justified, it causes legitimate political problems when you insult your suitors, people like Fergus and Elinor can be perfectly happy in an arranged marriage, etc. The problem is it didn't go far enough and used a standard "follow your dreams/heart/etc." moral anyway. :shrug: Still, it was an interesting change of perspective: most movies (for example, Aladdin) just have the princess refuse the arranged marriage so she can wind up with her "True Love," while this went in a different direction and made it more about her family.

...I've clearly been thinking about this too much. :XD:

I think there's some kind of contract requiring all Disney films to work in the "follow your heart" message. They even managed to work it into Pocahontas, despite Powahattan pointing out that they all had anger in their hearts.

Go ahead and think. Films are made to be analyzed.

Yeah, really. Look what happened to Romeo and Juliet. And Edward and Bella aren't even worth mentioning (so they'd best be grateful for the one mention here they did get).

Not that there's anything wrong with having dreams. But doing whatever it takes to fulfill your own dreams, even at the expense of others, is incredibly selfish. In an interesting paradox, many married couples who are truly committed to one another find that by giving up their own dreams for the other person, they have their dreams fulfilled in ways they never would have imagined.

One thing I like about Romeo and Juliet is that Shakespeare didn't feel the need to make Paris evil. (I'm not sure what his moral for that play was, though: on the one hand Romeo and Juliet manage to posthumously fix the rift between the two families, but on the other hand they're dead. Mixed messages.)

That's sort of another thing I like about Brave: we do get a (brief) look at the male suitors' perspective, while most stories would just make them evil/totally unappealing to drive the point home. (Brave still sort of does the latter.)

I think Shakespeare's moral was that families who focus too much on their rivalries and not enough on being there for their children risk losing their children to rebellion and even death. In the end, reconciliation between the families wasn't worth the loss of their children--a loss that could have and should have been prevented by the parents taking active roles in their children's lives. Although Romeo's family probably would've lost Mercutio anyway. He tended to look for trouble. Only character in that play I actually liked, oddly enough. At least he was aware that he was immature and rash, and that it could get him killed.

Oh, I don't know about making the suitors unappealing. Wee Dingwall was really the only truly unappealing one. But all of them have lots of room for fan fic character development. Young MacIntosh is a walking ego (gets it from his dad), and Young MacGuffin is adorably shy (and probably genuinely does want to impress Merida). Wee Dingwall is off in his own world, but he still has areas of his personality ripe with potential. I can see Merida becoming friends with all of them, and perhaps eventually developing a more romantic relationship with Young MacIntosh or Young MacGuffin (Wee Dingwall strikes me as being relatively asexual). The nice thing about Brave is it left that issue completely open ended by emphasizing the fact that Merida is not 100% opposed to the idea of ever marrying. And the boys like her as potential friend material at the very least. It's like the movie's creators are challenging us directly to continue the story.

Well, in-universe she seems to find them all unappealing. Fanfiction is a wonderful world where things like that don't have to matter. =D

Regarding King Fergus: Oh, HECK YEAH! He's the total opposite of what you would expect most fairy tale fathers/kings to be like. Rather than strict and harsh on his daughter, he's a kid at heart, fun-loving, and actually kinda encourages her behavior.

Regarding "Brave": I definitely see its cliches and flaws, but I don't regret seeing it. This guy and the relationship between Merida and her mother made it worthwhile. Add in the fact that it went through multiple directors and you can kind of see why the story isn't quite as good as other Pixar films. Maybe if it was given a little more time, it could have turned out something very good, but what I got wasn't all that bad.
