    "If you leave something behind, you gain something, too."

    Showing not telling at its finest.

    Something Borrowed

    Wow... this was one of the worst rom-coms I've ever seen. Gave me all the ick!

    I am one of the biggest fans of Cartoon Saloon. They are everything I look for in a production companyβ€”innovative, unique, open to newness and purposeful ambiguity. I have been waiting for two years for this film, so I was very excited to watch it.

    In so many ways, it was all I hoped for. Absolutely gorgeous art that I expect from the studio’s creators. A sweet story of friendship, with wonderful themes about fear and skewed views of safety…

    This is not a Hollywood movie. This is not Braveheart, if that's what you want, go watch Braveheart. (And I freaking love Braveheart okay, calm down)

    Outlaw King is a beautiful piece of art--like a stained glass window of one man's life in a moment of time. Breathtaking in its brutality and earnestness. The costumes, the glorious cinematic shots, oh my... but these things aren't overwrought. Every piece and prop screams of authenticity.

    I also adore Robert and Elizabeth's love…
