The Mitchells vs. The Machines

The Mitchells vs. The Machines ★★★★

2021 Netflix streaming

What a great experience that nails the story nearly perfect. The animation style was so unique, proving again why Sony Animation is truly underrated. A main character that I related to...a lot, and her relationship with the father led to the best moments. I cried a few times (THE WOODEN MOOSE!!)

I only wanted a bit more about the message on technology & cell phones. In the end, I don’t think it said much more about “tech taking over our lives” that other movies haven’t already said. It doesn’t matter because the story focused more on the family dynamics, but I’ll see how it holds up in repeated viewings. I’ll return to this in the future because the humor is so good. Born out of the Internet age of comedy in all the best ways!

It disturbs me that “Live Your Life” by T.I. is now a nostalgic song. Is this aging?
