28% Sherlock Gnomes (2018) Sherlock Gnomes isn't as fulfilling for the parents in the audience, but appropriately it meets the entertainment needs of the elementary crowd just fine.‐ Film School Rejects

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

Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2018
100% Negative Space (2018) I don't know if it's meant to have an emotional payoff, but if so it's not effective, perhaps because it's so brief, yet that's fine given the rest of its charms.‐ Film School Rejects

100% The Eleven O'Clock (2016) This is your typical comedic short story with a punchline ending. Kind of like an extended, but not overlong, Monty Python sketch. ‐ Film School Rejects
Read More | Posted Feb 11, 2018
100% Watu Wote (All of Us) (2017) For something intended just to show what happened and to honor the heroic demise of one of the passengers, it does its job.‐ Film School Rejects
