Take Gravity Falls, Into the Spiderverse, and lab-grade amphetamine and give it to a film student prodigy. The result is this film.

I can’t imagine how this got made, and I’m so glad it was.

Absolutely loved this! Super fun and very dramatic at times, with awesome animation!

Enjoyed this review from Vulture: It’s Little Miss Sunshine meets I, Robot meets The Host meets Zombieland meets WALL-E meets Kill Bill meets, well, all the other movies.

This is easily one of the best movies I've seen in quite a while. Pure fun. Incredible.

The Furby section in the mall had my teenager laughing SO HARD. (Me too, to be clear.) I was also super impressed with the face animation of Evil Siri on the phone. So much creativity in such a clean, simple space.

Pretty much every scene garnished a chef's kiss from me. When the dad accidentally changed the sys settings to Spanish and screamed when he saw an n with a tilde? oh. my. god.

This was a really fun movie. The animation was so creative and even the credits were fun.

This is honestly the best film ive seen this year. Very funny, and so creative both in look and individual moments. Fundamentally it is a family story, so the overarching moral message and plot is predictable, but within those lines it is able to craft something really unique.
