"There are so few indie films made for children; it sometimes seems like the market has been hijacked by intellectuals and twentysomething hipsters who make films about themselves. IMAGINAPPED is a brilliant look into the imaginary world of two children and the larger-than-life battles they wage. Similar to CALVIN AND HOBBES, the film clues us in enough to be able to tell what’s really going on, but otherwise treats its fantastical elements are real as they are to the children. The two leads are both followed by their adult warriors who treat their battles as seriously as if this were LORD OF THE RINGS. The production value is incredible and everything is very tongue-in-cheek. This is a film that celebrates imagination and is able to work within the realm of dream logic."
