    The Mitchells vs. The Machines

    ★★★

    Showcasing that same typical "quirky" family you've seen in multiple comedies, The Mitchells vs. The Machines presents a magically colourful world that holds your attention for the entire 110 minutes we spend inside the minds of writer and director Michael Rianda (in his feature-length debut, no less) and co-writer Jeff Rowe in his first who is known for his writing on Gravity Falls.

Blending comedy and drama excellently, through one long-take, we the audience spend 13-minutes viewing the main character's struggles to eulogise his mother at her funeral. For Thunder Road, Jim Cummings had a…
