The Brave Little Toaster Goes to Mars (1998)


Whilst trying to protect their new “Little Master” the anthropomorphic appliances set off on an epic adventure and make many new friends along the way. (Letterboxd)
Amazing or awful? I’ll just list a few things here–beyond, you know, the main premise of sentient appliances flying to Mars in a popcorn-powered laundry basket–and let you decide: rat wrestling baby monitor; election speeches laced with appliance existentialism; gang of balloons singing in space (led by a Bob Dylan-impersonator that’s been drifting since Woodstock). And all of it’s wrapped in this weird stilted-dialogue/VHS kid-flick/pacifying sheen. Also, I think it’s a Christmas movie?
6.5/10 (Alright)
