Personal Quote:

So yeah, is it hard when a movie like The Cobbler (2014) doesn't connect critically. I'd never had that experience. But even when I was going through it, I had to have a good perspective about things, and sometimes in those situations I have the ability to go, "Wow, this is really interesting. This has never happened, and it's a really intense feeling." [2015] See more »
