Audience Reviews for Mater's Tall Tales: Season 1

  • Sep 06, 2021
    Mater really works better in small doses, something that even his fanbase agree on. That's honestly the reason why Cars 2 didn't work, though I thought it was okay and calling it one of the worst animated films of all time is exaggerating its flaws. Simply put, it was meant to be a break from the more emotionally heavy films but it didn't take. It didn't help that audiences wondered if Pixar would ever make a sequel for any of their other non-Toy Story films and got a sequel to their then-weakest film rather than an Incredibles sequel. The sort-of prototype for Cars 2, Mater's Tall Tales are fine. They're a group of short films that have amusing plotlines, funny gags, hilariously absurd plot developments (yes, somehow Lightning McQueen was there for all of Mater's fabricated adventures) and, being Pixar, animation on par with the films. They're brief and don't have any overarching narrative since Pixar wasn't as franchise-dependent as DreamWorks, meaning they had no intention of competing against them and their Penguins of Madagascar Nicktoon but Mater's Tall Tales are a group of amusing, harmless short films released at the height of the popularity of a franchise known for its headache-inducing questions about how this universe's world-building works and being more toyetic than, ironically enough, the actual movies about toys. At least this franchise ended on a high note with Cars 3.
