That's My Boy (trailer)
Hellboy II: The Golden Army: "The use of color in this film (as well as other Guillermo Del Toro films) is fantastic. The combination of character storylines is also something to look into both on the screen and in the script. This particular film is very influential in my novel writing as well as character development and backstory."
Sherrilyn Kenyon, Charlaine Harris, and Richelle Mead : "They all do a great job combing character storylines that intertwine with each other."
