Go write your own stories.

The Book of Life (2014)

I'm not sure if this film is based on an actual Mexican fable, but I assume that it is (im too lazy to do much research). That would explain some of the odd plotting and characterisation (particularly in regards to the female lead who the movie wants to be strong and independent but the story keeps sidelining her as just a prize to be fought over by two men). It's a shame it doesn't get beyond this issue or the fact that it's not really all that funny because the animation is superb. A colourful blast, with a splendid design sense.
