Continuing my countdown of every Pixar movie…
#20. Brave (2012)
(down one spot from previous ranking)
As a follow-up to the disappointing Cars 2, Brave wasn’t exactly a sign that Pixar had righted the ship.
It took 13 films for the studio to finally feature a female protagonist, but the result feels more in line with Disney’s traditional princess lineup than Pixar’s work.
A thin plot and an overreliance on slapstick humor take away from an otherwise touching story about a mother-daughter relationship.
