Watch: ‘Project M.I.C.K’ is a Must-See Mix of ‘Iron Giant’ and Your First Love

Why Watch? This sweet movie from Sandy Widyanata features a young boy who steals a busted up video game controller from a young girl. She chases him through their neighborhood junkyard, and what happens when he pushes a few buttons is a pleasant surprise.

Shot to perfectly capture the endless summer day of youth, the CGI is seamless and the story is so familiar that it tells itself (except for the last few moments of course). This excellent gem is like a cool sip of lemonade on a hot day sweetened with sci-fi.

What will it cost? Only 1 minute.
