A talking microwave gets rather disgruntled with its owner as it starts to get used less and less.

Plenty of good humour in this including a serious dig at a rival team in their intro. The talking microwave effect worked really well and the voice work was spot on. It just all felt a little rushed at the end and I also couldn't shake the feeling that I'd seen a version of this film before. Well-executed in general and up there for one of the better films in this heat.

Great story, good acting, well scripted, great effects on the talking microwave, good development of the relationship shown through the montage, strongest film of the heat.

Pretty strong film over all, shows how far a simple idea done well can get you,

Subtle but great use of special effects too, probably the strongest of the heat overall
