On Demand movie highlights

BRAVE ½

(Comcast Movie Collections: Just In) Uh-oh: The first Pixar movie that doesn’t feel like a Pixar movie. A lusciously animated tale of a rebellious Scottish princess (voiced by Kelly Macdonald) and the witch’s potion that turns her mother (Emma Thompson) into a bear, it has laughs, emotion, and moments of invention to offset a bizarre and scattered story line. In 3-D. (PG; runs through March 30)

BUTTERFLY ½

(Encore on Comcast) Filmmaker Jose Luis Cuerda evokes the poignantly brief days of Spain’s Republic, before it was snuffed out by Franco. Its liberal expansiveness is personified by the great Fernando Fernan Gomez, who plays an enlightenment figure, a village teacher, in this handsomely crafted film that curiously and stubbornly never takes wing. (R; runs through April 1)

LES MISERABLES

(Encore on Comcast) Solid remake of the Victor Hugo perennial, delivered with handsome size and amplitude by Bille August, who smoothly blends an international cast headed by Liam Neeson as the fugitive convict Jean Valjean, trying to be a good man, and Geoffrey Rush as Javert, the obsessive, self-loathing police bulldog on his trail. (PG-13; runs through Feb. 7)
