A lead character who's not all that likeable until the movie's almost over? Well now, that is brave. It's also not a terrific idea.
Merida (Kelly Macdonald) is petulant, snotty and irresponsible – in other words, a teenager. But the archery-loving Scottish princess also lacks empathy and is cruel to her fiercely traditional mother, Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson), and that's harder to swallow. Worse, though, is Brave's nutty central plot twist.
The spoiler-lite gist is that after visiting a witch (a kicky Julie Walters) in hopes of avoiding marriage to one of the dorky sons of a nearby clan, Merida leaves with a darkly magical charm that sends her on a life-altering quest.

And along the way, he racked up his share of pop culture notoriety, too.
From Saturday Night Live to Toy Story to Sex and the City, the late Apple visionary's work and his many pervasive products made their mark in the world of entertainment.
