there's a thing where you adds 'in my ass' to the end of a movie title, so here are some…
The Brave Little Toaster
Imagine if Your Toaster Went on a Journey of its Own!
A group of dated appliances find themselves stranded in a summer home that their family had just sold decide to, a la The Incredible Journey, seek their young 8 year old "master". Children's film which on the surface is a frivolous fantasy, but with a dark subtext of abandonment, obsolescence, and loneliness.
Poor lamp. Poor vacuum. Poor radio. The toaster gets title rights, and all because of one heroic act in the finale?
They all deserve medals for, you know, not dying during their journey to the big city. It ain't easy being an appliance, you know.
So... It's back to that stupid static again. You think I don't know what's going on in here? I know what goes on in this cottage. It's a conspiracy and every one of you low-watts is in on it. Just 'cause you move around, you think you're better than I am. I'm not an invalid. I was designed to stick in the wall! I like being stuck in the stupid wall! I can't help it if the kid was too short to reach my dials...
IT'S MY FUNCTION!
this movie is literally the end of the tour
Well, doesn't this revisit to an old childhood favorite make me reconsider the originality behind Toy Story. It's damn near the same plot but obviously replace toys with appliances.
Anyway I'm glad this one lived up to the memory and did not lose its appeal now that I am an adult. In fact I was fairly surprised by its technicality and the hand drawn animation was not bad at all. I do love the fact now that I am older to see all of the film's hidden subtexts. The theme of abandonment is the one that stands out the most but how odd was it to have the dialogue exchange between Lampy and the Toaster regarding being "friendly" to blankey…
the blanket is totally me.
tbh this is one of the more poignant and intelligent animated films that i dont think gets enough credit; it's a film about our inherent desire for self-worth and our inability to accept a life without purpose, yet the cruel irony is that this life is eventually inevitable.
or maybe it's just a cute kids movie.
either way, good film.
This is a disney film about toasters.
It is possibly the most beautiful thing I have ever seen.
This Film Is Such A Underrated Classic In My Opinion And It Really Needs A Blu-Ray Release. This Movie Has All The Things You Would See In A 1960's-1980's Disney Film (Probably Because Some Of The Film Workers Used To Be Employed By Disney). The Soundtrack Is Beautiful, The Animation Is Very High Quality, And The Voice Casting Suits The Appliance's Looks. I Highly Recommend This Film If You Are A Fan Of Disney Films, Because This Film Definitely Feels Like Something From Disney
Thirty years after its release, The Brave Little Toaster's greatest contribution to film history is that it's essentially the proto-Toy Story. I adored this film as a child, watching it over and over again, so it's no wonder that I loved Toy Story even more, especially since this feels like a rough draft for that film.
The Brave Little Toaster basically follows the same arc that Toy Story would follow eight years later, and even some of the sequels, and features some of the same creators. This doesn't make The Brave Little Toaster bad per se, but it does make it sort of obsolete. There are huge jumps in logic that Toy Story fixed, almost as if they were repairing…
Doesn't really hold up. If it ever did.
I CANT TAKE THIS KIND OF PRESSURE
And I thought Toy Story had its dark moments. Geez
I can see where Toy Story 3 got a lot of its inspiration. So many elements/themes of that movie were practically taken straight from Brave Little Toaster
Damn that junkyard song. Probably one of the darkest songs Disney's ever produced.
The characters are cute. Some of the characters like the radio come off as annoying at first but gradually grow on you as the movie progresses.
Those modern appliances probably regret hating on the toaster and his friends. Most if not all of them are out of date by today's standards. I could probably find them all in a thrift shop somewhere nowadays.
Animation style doesn't seem as…
damn this was a terrifying vision of existential despair. i need to rewatch. those clowns alone gave me nightmares
Fucking hilarious dear god
I don't care how old you are, this film is a masterpiece.
Since we all have a WATCHLIST, it seemed only fair to have an Anti-Watchlist.
This is mine.
