The Saw franchise has been cranking out the torture porn since 2004. 17 years of blood, guts and suspect acting has been a staple of the franchise. While Chris Rock and Samuel L.

Right from the start, it becomes quickly apparent that The Mitchells vs. The Machines is not your typical animated film. Through the use of a unique animation style, quirky humor, and on-screen visual gags – there is a lot to love about this dysfunctional family taking on robots who are trying to destroy the world.

Movie Review: GODZILLA VS. KONG Starring Alexander Skarsgård, Millie Bobby Brown, Rebecca Hall
