Everything coming and going on Netflix: Week of April 25th

I will watch pretty much anything that Phil Lord and Christopher Miller attach their names to. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and The Lego Movie are both modern animated classics, as is Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which they helped to produce. Therefore, I have no choice but to watch The Mitchells vs. The Machines — another animated movie on which they serve as producers — when it hits Netflix this week.

In this movie, a dysfunctional family goes on a road trip and ends up having to save the world from a robot uprising while learning how to get along. Plus, it has a stellar voice cast which includes Abbi Jacobson, Danny McBride, Maya Rudolph, Eric Andre, Fred Armisen, Conan O’Brien, and Olivia Colman, to name a few.

  • Fatma NETFLIX ORIGINAL

    • Fatma (35), an ordinary cleaning lady, commits an unexpected murder while searching for her missing husband, Zafer, who was just released from jail. Zafer’s dodgy underground associates soon find out what she did, and the only way for her to survive in this man’s world is to continue killing. She gets away with it too – since no one takes her to be more than an ordinary cleaner, she becomes an invisible killer. In the end, murder becomes a release for the years of struggle and grief that she had repressed, and a new part of her identity she must confront.

No big deal, right? It all starts when creative outsider Katie Mitchell is accepted into the film school of her dreams and is eager to leave home and find “her people,” when her nature-loving dad insists on having the whole family drive her to school and bond during one last totally-not-awkward-or-forced road trip. But just when the trip can’t get any worse, the family suddenly finds itself in the middle of the robot uprising! Everything from smart phones, to roombas, to evil Furbys are employed to capture every human on the planet. Now it’s up to the Mitchells, including upbeat mom Linda, quirky little brother Aaron, their squishy pug, Monchi, and two friendly, but simple-minded robots to save humanity.
