    Immersed in Movies: Turbulent Behind-the-Scenes Yields Pixar's 'Brave' New Scottish World

    "Brave" is far from the disappointment expressed in some early reviews. It's not only the much ballyhooed breakthrough as Pixar's first female-centric movie but also the most lush-looking work yet from the animation powerhouse. It's a powerful mother-daughter crucible set in medieval Scotland but wi...

    Review: Pixar's 'Brave' Is A Powerful But Wobbly Feminist Fairy Tale

    There are a lot of firsts associated with "Brave," Disney/Pixar's new feature, set in the misty Scottish highlands.

    Willem Dafoe Still Baffled By Failure Of 'John Carter'; New Pixar Stamps Introduced
