Persepolis (2007) - 8.5/10

Robots (2005) Review

Blue Sky Studios has a tendency to make three different kinds of animated films: The first category is the visually impressive features that sadly feel all too familiar and safe in terms of story and characters (such was the case with the first Ice Age film). 950 more words
