80% Lou (2017) It's sappy, but the six-minute short earns its emotional denouement and does offer children a cute lesson about bullies within its delivery of slapstick and schmaltz.‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2018
85% Revolting Rhymes (2016) The animation isn't terribly fresh or inventive, but the storytelling is engaging and witty.‐ Film School Rejects
