The Mitchells vs. The Machines

The Mitchells vs. The Machines ★★★★

A shot of pure, unadulterated joy. It’s refreshing to see something so committed to being over the top and creative, and the animation really heightens to that frenzied effect. Just like the extra details are meant to simulate an immersive comic book in Spider-Verse, here they capture the feeling of making random videos when you’re a middle schooler. Since it has that vibe, the meme integrations can kinda get cringey, but it’s hard not to get charmed by all how infectious and heartfelt the story is. 

Also it’s really great to see Queer rep where their identies aren’t merely hinted at, and is just a part of who they are, not the only characteristic that makes them noteworthy. Also Also never would’ve guessed that the studio behind the emoji movie would be pushing the boundaries of 3D animation and be behind some of the best animated films of the past couple years! love how times change!
