The Mitchells vs. The Machines ★★★★

A predictable story with some pointed criticism at our dependency on technology and the “power of family” stuff. Pretty mediocre from a writing and story standpoint.

HOWEVER.

It is VERY refreshing to watch a non-Pixar movie that makes some bold creative decisions, even if they don’t all pay off. There’s clearly some influence from the Lego Batman Movie, but I think from an animation standpoint, this movie takes some risks and experiments with the way an animated story can be told, and for that I really commend the effort!
