The Mitchells vs. The Machines

The Mitchells vs. The Machines ★★★½

The Mitchells vs. The Machines is GOOD


So maybe Sony really is finally realizing to not make any more Emoji Movie type films anymore. This was good.

This was just a fun, wholesome, cute family movie that has a lot of emotional beats that just work surprisingly. Nothing feels overly sad or like it’s trying too hard. It all feels very natural, which is a great thing. There’s some fantastic uses of animation and I thought the score was even pretty solid. This movie is clever and in general is unique which is just another plus.

However I can’t help but think the film lasts a little too long. It probably could’ve been shortened. I guess that’s more of a nitpick but oh well. Though, it does interfere with the pacing a little so idk. I kinda zoned out in the middle of the film and just didn’t really care anymore. Yes, it does pick back up, but still my complaint is still there. 

I’m glad people are enjoying this, including myself, I just wouldn’t say this was top tier animated movie level for me. It’s good. And that’s about it.
