A little cheese and a little whine

Film Log: Brave, Puss in Boots, and Hotel Transylvania

Details here, here and here.

All three of these films do a little bit more than it says on the tin. They’re all basically light-hearted and inconsequential animated comedies with a family oriented premise, and none of them tries to be anything else. All three succeed, though, and do so without collapsing into sentimentality or insulting the intelligence of their audience. There are some very funny moments in all three films, and Puss in Boots in particular does a good job of building a whole character and indeed film from a Shrek sidekick. Not having any children I can’t comment on how suitable they would be for watching with a younger audience, but if you want something undemanding and amusing to do for a couple of hours, you could do worse than watch one of these.
