Great Fun!
24 May 2018 | by cammieconnSee all my reviews

I was thoroughly surprised by how much I enjoyed this documentary! Not only did it explain the humble beginnings of a company that I've loved for a while now, but it also felt like a celebration of nerdy-ness and what you can accomplish if you have enough passion for storytelling and pop culture.
