My Individual Ratings
18 February 2018 | by jacksoneverettjlSee all my reviews

Negative Space: 7.5

  • Outstanding animation, unique style, great story, but the voice acting was not impressive.
Garden Party: 6
  • The animation blew me away with how real (most of it) ended up looking. However, there was hardly anything else besides spectacle and a little bit of creative writing
Lou: 4
  • This one doesn't deserve to win, but it probably will. Nothing particularly good about it.
Revolting Rhymes: 8
  • Despite some people not liking this one, I think the musical score drove it along pretty well, everything tied together well, and the voice acting was also notable. My only issue is that the animation (in my opinion) could have been better. I was never bored while watching it
Dear Basketball: 5
  • As much as I loved the animation style, and the story being told, it just felt like it was missing something.
