Behold, another theme I don’t feel very comfortable with because I had to Google my way to my last recommendation. The reason being, I didn’t really realise that it was based on toys, but I’m glad I did some research because it made my list so much better.
First movie that I wanted to recommend was of course The Lego Movie, because it’s obviously the best choice for this list. Filled with humour, great character twists and some awesome visuals, The Lego Movie is probably one of the best movies out there that is based on toys. And it seemed to have started a trend of toy-movies, but I don’t think any of them will come close to The Lego Movie.
Another obvious pick is the standout animated movie from the 90’s, Toy Story which features various classic toys that have been brought to life. In the following years, Toy Story has had two follow ups and a third one coming up in 2019. I have yet to watch the third movie, which got great feedback, but I feel like the whole series deserves a marathon in the upcoming months.
Oh the 90’s, those were the good old times of fun movies! Mars Attacks! is one of those movies that stays with you for years, and I was surprised to find out that it was based on toys! Tim Burton directed this movie, back when he was still creating unique movies, and it has a very impressive cast including Jack Nicholson, Danny DeVito, Glenn Close, Michael J. Fox and Natalie Portman.
