    The Mitchells vs. The Machines

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I probably won't articulate my thoughts on this one very well, much in the same way I couldn't with Sony Pictures Animation's Lord & Miller-produced SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE when that first came out.

    THE MITCHELLS VS. THE MACHINES is an unabashed celebration of weirdos, all the way down to outright proclaiming it several times over. Maybe a bit too much, but hey, it needs to be said anyways! Everyone in the Mitchell family is headstrong as all heck, and that's…

    To start, I am autistic, but I am not a non-verbal autistic person, so maybe I shouldn't speak for the majority of my kind on whether this is a step forward in portrayal or…

    Foam Bath

    ★★★★½

    Some people tend to say "Why do this in animation? This can be easily be done in live-action. Why animate it?"

    The late Hungarian fine artist Gyorgy Kovasznai, whether intentionally or not, basically showed us why in 1979. The storyline of HABFURDO/BUBBLE BATH could've easily been told as a live-action drama, but Kovasznai completely justified using animation. And how did he and the crew behind this film do that? By making an animated feature where characters are perpetually off model,…
