So what did this Grade 12 student do? I went to the library and signed out the two books that correspond to the first two movies (there is no third book for "Toaster to the Rescue").
The books are very different from the movies, and in watching "Goes to Mars" I realized that a lot of aspects would be hard to understand if you haven't read the book, which is quite supplementary to the plot in the movie. There is no baby in the book (the appliances, in the first book, end up with a retired ballerina instead of the Master they had been looking for) and Einstein's hearing aid actually helps Radio to pick up signals from the Wonderluxe appliances on Mars which tell them that they plan to destroy Earth. The reason for going to Mars is essentially the same as in the movie. And the Christmas angel was really sent to Mars with the Wonderluxe appls. (NOT the Viking 1) as a free gift for buying them (when they were on Earth). Her role stays the same in the movie.
As for the quality of this movie, I was expecting it to be really bad, but I loved it. The weakest point was the soundtrack ...the words (apart from the campaigning song between Toaster and the Supreme Commander) were inane and the music was rather uninspired (again, except for the campainging song).Read more ›
The second film to be produced in this trilogy (although the last in it), Mars is the second best. The colorful backgrounds, songs and adventure will capture your child's attention. It also provides a great dialog about values, misunderstandings and prejudice. It's also a entertaining movie. It's a pity that Disney didn't invest a bit more money in this sequel (it was actually done outside of Disney if I'm not mistaken and picked up by the company). The animation could have been a bit smoother but your kids probably won't notice.
The songs are enjoyable and the difficulties the characters have provide excellent examples of conflict resolution for kids. The plot is less dark than the first film but, again, may require a bit of explaining.
When I first watched this very convoluted movie, it brought every "what were they smoking" cliche to mind about the screenwriters and director. Seriously, it was hard to imagine that people whose brains weren't chemically fried could POSSIBLY think that some of the nonsense and downright creepiness in this flick was a good idea. Then I finally read the Brave Little Toaster books by Thomas M. Disch (which are excellent, by the way, and I highly recommend them.) A large part of the awfulness of the "Mars" movie sequel seems to result from the unfortunate collision of the Disney- and Disch-authored plots. Disney pretty much took Disch's concept of anthropomorphic appliances and ran with it, adding their own human characters and greatly altering the plot. The "master" of the appliances Rob McGroarty, his girlfriend/wife Chris, the veterinary school thing --all 100% Disney.Read more ›
