The Mitchells vs. The Machines

The Mitchells vs. The Machines ★★★★

+The title and concept of the film, suggests that this is going to be your generic fluffy Sony animation, but it's so much more than that. This came out no where, exceeding every expectation I had.
+I love the fact that the centre character, Katie, is passionate about film. It makes the movie itself resonate with movie fans with the little nods to classics like, Dawn of the dead, They Live, and 2001 with PAL (HAL 2000)
+It's one of the best looking films of the year so far, I love the unique style of animation, the colours are so vibrant, and there are some shots that will stick in my mind.
+The story is emotional, about growing up, family issues and moving out.
+Great voice acting by all.
+The found the comedy pretty hilarious having stupid gags for kids, but also clever commentary on our reliance on technology. The pterodactyl kid reminded me of one of my housemates weirdly...

Overall- I did not expect myself to prefer The Mitchell's vs the Machines to Raya.

DID YOU KNOW- At around 1:46:38 of the movie, during the credits, there is the actual recipe for Linda's face cupcakes.
