Have five minutes to spare? In the mood for a stunning, steampunky fairy tale?
Then watch this:
Wow. Am I right?
(If you can't watch it right now, here's a little preview:)
And speaking of visually stunning films, John and I finally saw The Book of Life this week, and LOVED it.
For some reason I was afraid it'd be like The Boxtrolls, which we also saw recently after waiting forever, but happily Book of Life has a really engaging story (which I think Trolls lacks) and is non-stop eye candy (where Trolls is often flinch-away disgusting).
Some of the modern music selections are a little jarring, but oh man, you guys, the scene with the bull? AH! Can I spoil this, just a little? Because I have to tell you:
[MINOR SPOILER AHEAD]
The scene where the failed bullfighter sings his apology to the spirits of all the bulls his ancestors have slain absolutely did me in. Bawled. Like a. Baby. So gorgeous.
So, yeah, go rent Book of Life, if you haven't already. John's already demanded we buy this one, so I'm off to grab a copy now. (Ooh, and only $12 on Amazon! Sweet!)
