Movie Review Many think Pixar was off the mark with Brave, but I believe those people are mistaken. Brave is a wonderful movie that looks at the aspects of childhood rebellion and growing up.

It’s a movie I let my young children watch because it shows them monsters just want to make you laugh and not hurt you. My kids have never had a monster nightmare and sometimes even pretend to be one themselves. There’s good news M-Inc. fans like. It’s finally coming to Blu-ray. On a day we̵...[Read More]
