    From the people who brought us Spiderverse, The Mitchells vs. The Machines has a similar vibe while enabling a more free-form approach to multi-media animation that fits both the comedy and the central character, a girl who makes movies with her phone. So there's an objective reality, there's a phone filter reality, and there's the world of the imagination represented by drawn elements, oh and maybe a bit of anime/Samurai Jack type action too. At times, there's so much on the screen, you know you'll want to watch it again at some point. While on a family road trip, the Mitchells, identifying as "weirdos" become the only people on Earth able to resist the machine apocalypse precipitated by what can only be described as a new iPhone release. It's Terminator, but informed by current tech culture (and do I love Olivia Coleman as this world's Siri? Of course I do!). There's a nice statement about the value of family, and that of letting your freak flag fly, but a lot of belly laughs as well. The dog (and the movies he stars in) is a definite highlight, and the robots are great too. If I can't give it the full 5 stars, it's that 1) the little boy's voice sounds like an adult's doing a voice, and 2) Sony putting out a "tech companies are dangerous" message is disingenuous. 2 months 2 weeks ago

    A bit more of a kid's movie than Lord and Miller have given us in the past.

    Perfectly enjoyable family action adventure with an okay number of laughs. But nothing groundbreaking like the Lego movies or Spider-verse.
