The High King Lives

Weekend Special: “Brave” review and the Virtual Oval Office July 6, 2012

Hello friends, today I’m combining Virtual Friday and Media Saturday. First off, there’s a great replica of the Oval Office in SecondLife. They did a good job on it. You can click the pic for a larger version.

Secondly, we went to see the movie “Brave” and we loved it. The movie is a beautiful tale of parent and child learning to accept each others differences and love each other no matter what. There are two issues that may bother parents. First, there is magic. Second, there is very mild violence.

“Brave” is a Disney-Pixar film about a red-haired Scottish princess named Merida. It takes place in the 10th century. Merida is an arrow shooting tom-boy. Her mother Queen Elinor wants her to be a proper princess. Mother and daughter often butt heads but it gets worse when Princess Merida’s mother wants her to get married. How will the groom be chosen? A contest of skill. Merida will do anything to change her fate….even ask a witch for help. As Rumpelstiltskin says in “Once Upon a Time”, “Magic always comes with a price”.  The spell backfires and Merida must find a way to break it.

There is a large scary bear and mild almost slapstick fighting among clans. Michael wasn’t scared one bit. What bothered me the most was the will-O’-the-wisp, a spirit light that led Merida through the forest. It was a minor player in the story though. I simply had a talk with Michael about spirits and how people either go to Heaven or Hell. Also that if he ever sees any strange lights like that he needs to rebuke it. Demons take many forms….may it be sprite or fairy. The real life version is nothing like the kind in stories. People seek these things in Wicca and it is REAL. Michael knows the difference between make-believe magic and real witchcraft. I find honesty is the best policy in parenting.  Overall, I enjoyed the main storyline and honestly I teared up a bit.

      ((hugs)) Let me know what you think :). Michael was against it at first. He told me it was too girly and he didn’t want to see it. But he changed his mind after seeing it. I had an “I told you so” moment lol 😉
