The Mitchells vs. The Machines

The Mitchells vs. The Machines ★★★★

Such a good time! A great comfort movie that you can just sit back and turn your brain off. It manages not to be annoying and cringey, like most modern animated movies of this type. The comedy is legit funny and it also packs some nice emotional punches here and there. The animation is A-MA-ZING. The neon, the 3D juxtaposed with 2D. The comic book aesthetic. Just gimme more. Seriously, Sony, just invest all your time into projects like this from now on and ditch the Hotel Transylvania and Angry Birds films. Please. I’m begging you. 

Also: pro tip for anyone curious how to write a good queer character and NOT have her entire character arc be focused around her queerness - watch this. It’s how it’s done. Bravo Lord & Miller. Ya’ll are gettin’ to be the new kings of animation.
