On Tuesday night, Honey and I had the opportunity to see Disney Pixar's Brave at the San Francisco Centre Century 9 Theater. We had the best seats we've ever had of all our movie outings! There was even some pre-movie festivities from a dance student from the San Jose School of Highland Dancing. She performed some traditional Scottish dances and really set the mood for the movie. It made Honey want to pull me up off my seat to dance. It also made us want to send Kiggster to take dance lessons when she's old enough so she can have a hopping' and kicking' time!
When the movie started, it was time to put on those 3D glasses and let them take us away to Scotland. Watching the movie in 3D was a rich and captivating experience. Throughout the movie, I felt I was right there next to the characters, at times I wanted to reach out and touch or grab something and even scenes of the waterfall and sunset were so beautiful even though it was only on a movie screen. I believe having a good musical score can make or break a movie. The music in Brave wraps you up into the whole mood of the movie, especially for the romping fun moments. It even left Honey and I leaving the theater at the end of the movie in song and dance! Really, he had a skip in his step!
I laughed. I cried. I even jumped in my seat at some point! I laughed at all the mischievous and comical characters and the things that they did. The emotional struggles of the characters seemed very real and relatable. It even made me cry!
What a nice way to spend our first date night in weeks and our first movie in the theater together since Kiggster was born! Brave comes out in theaters today, June 22nd, so go out and enjoy a night out at the movies!
Kangaroo Mama was given free passes to a special screening of the movie, Brave, in order to write this posting but all opinions and statements were 100% my own.
