Episode 104

The Mitchells vs. The Machines

From the same studio who brought you Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, and the producers of literally everything great that came out in the last 10+ years comes the best movie of 2021.

Yep, I said it.

The Mitchells vs. The Machines is the best movie of 2021. No hyperbole, either.

This is also the studio that brought us The Emoji Movie, proving that things can only get better if you have a passionate and brilliant team of weirdos behind the scenes.

The Mitchells vs. The Machines is a watercolour painting brought spectacularly to life, but it's also a deeply emotional and hilarious movie, with a great cast, that's all about tradition vs technology, the forthcoming robot apocalypse (Alexa and Siri are plotting, I swear!), but mostly about family, love, being weird and embracing it.

Never forget - you guys are my people.

Behold! Cinema!

Hi! I'm Em. I created Verbal Diorama in 2018, and launched the podcast in February 2019 to rapturous applause and acclaim.... from my cat Jess.

The modus operandi of Verbal Diorama is simple: movies are tough to make! The coming together of a team of people from all walks of life to make something to entertain, delight and educate us for 90+ mins is not an easy task, and yet so many succeed at it. That must be something to celebrate.

I'm here to do just that - to celebrate movies. Their history and legacy, and why they remain so special to so many of us.

I mostly host solo, but often you'll hear my cat Jess in the background (she's 17 years old, and very loud!).

I love podcasts and listen to many, but never my own.

I unashamedly love The Mummy (1999) and Grease 2. I'm still looking for a cool rider.
