The Mitchells vs. The Machines

The Mitchells vs. The Machines ★★★★

This is definitely a potential Oscar contender for next year’s Best Animated Film category. This is one of the funniest and most clever animated films I have seen in recent memory. Phil Lord and Chris Milller’s sharp wit and clever gags are incredibly present here. The satire is biting, the dialogue is incredibly well written. The animation is unique and groundbreaking. If you loved their previous animated comedies “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” and “The Lego Movie”, this is right up there with them. There were a few issues I had with it, particularly the 3rd act, which felt best for beat the 3rd act of “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”, even the jokes. But this is just as heartwarming as “Lego Movie” and is all around great. They are definitely giving Pixar a run for their money. 
Grade: A-   9/10.  4/5 stars
