The Mitchells vs. The Machines

The Mitchells vs. The Machines ★★★★

Absolutely WILD.

Michael Rianda's debut feature is all sorts of hilarious, sh*tpost-fueled fun with a shining heart at the center of it. Becomes the rare film (and piece of media actually) to use modern trends, slang, and terminology and make it not feel artificial or cringeworthy, and although the plot feels linear to a fault in terms of stuff beyond the central relationships (I wanted more Eric Andre and Olivia Colman chemistry pleaassee) and not all of the jokes hit, it more than makes up for it with the amount of style and creativity it throws at the viewer.

A rollicking, bitingly sincere brakeless rollercoaster, agh the audience reactions to this could've been insane, please seek this out as this has been one of the most enjoyable western animation experiences i've had in a while, expected nothing less of Rianda, Lord, and Miller (who've made or has been involved in other animated projects I have loved).

More of these ambitious ventures with fresh, off-the-wall voices would be very epic
