Ripping Yarns

To the cinema today to see Brave, which I very much enjoyed. Main characters voiced by Kelly Macdonald, Emma Thompson and Billy Connolly, with Robbie Coltrane in there as well, so the acting was in good hands. (And if any sceptics are wondering how authentically Scottish the (half-Scottish) Emma Thompson can sound, I refer then to the BBC serial Tutti Frutti, which also provided Mr Coltrane with an early acting opportunity.)

And I loved La Luna, the Pixar short which preceded it. Not a bucketload of laughs like some of the Pixar shorts (Presto, say, or Lifted), but a lovely old-fashioned sort of film, and a joy to watch.
