Review: Netflix Film The Mitchells vs. The Machines

No images

I usually spend my Saturday mornings at the beauty salon, but this past Saturday I spent it watching a virtual screening of the animated Netflix film The Mitchells vs. The Machines.

Netflix film The Mitchells vs. The Machines

I have to be honest and say that animated movies are usually not my thing, but this movie had my attention from the beginning. The visuals were amazing!

I was glued to my laptop trying to figure out how the Mitchells were going to save the world from the robot apocalypse.

It all starts when Katie Mitchell is accepted into the film school of her dreams and is excited to leave home. When her overprotective dad insists on the entire family driving her to school to bond, they find themselves coming together to save the world from the machines.

The very gadgets that they had come to depend on was now turning on them. Cell phones, laptops, roombas, etc..big tech had basically stored all of their weaknesses and was using them to capture every human on earth so that they could take over. Sound familiar? The movie even throws shade at Facebook and I was here for it..lol

Even though the movie was full of laughs and action, I found myself shedding a couple of tears towards the end. The message of family, hope, and believing in one another is just what we need during these trying times.

Oh and Katie Mitchell makes it to film school and her family is right there to send her off.

The Mitchells vs. The Machines premieres Friday, April 30th on Netflix.

Check out the trailer below:

Roma Downey and Mark Burnett are back with another movie to bring us hope! The Resurrection movie is a biblical epic on the aftermath of the earth-shattering event of Jesus’ crucifixion in first century Jerusalem.

Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here, He has risen! – Luke 24:5-6

Resurrection Movie
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc.

I was blessed to attend an early screening of the film virtually and if I wasn’t crying I was praising God throughout the movie. That’s just how powerful it is.

And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.- Matthew 28:5-6

Over a gripping 90 minutes we experience the emotional turmoil faced by Jesus’ followers as they attempt to come to terms with the devastating loss of their leader. His death leaves them disillusioned, hunted and afraid; his resurrection triggers hope, faith and love, that has changed the world.

Resurrection is now streaming on Discovery Plus.
