The Mitchells vs. The Machines

The Mitchells vs. The Machines ★★★

I’m lower on this than most people it seems. I really liked it and enjoyed myself while watching it, but I didn’t feel it was anything out of this world and I already envision myself forgetting about it pretty fast.

The family dynamics were definitely the strong point of the movie. The humor wasn’t that funny to me. Maybe cause I’m a millennial that has resisted technological change since she was 10 years old, but at the same time I have begrudgingly adapted...so I was neither the daughter nor the father and I didn’t feel the joy of getting to be represented haha.

The best part of the movie was the mall scene, with THE toy. That callback was right up might alley. Two of those toys still decorate a part of my house; which is how I know that if I felt that level of nostalgia for the whole movie, I would have loved it more.

One last thing: there is a music cue towards the end playing during the emotional moments...it almost singlehandedly made me up my grade, I really really liked it!
