The Emoji Movie
« on: July 31, 2017, 06:57:26 PM »
It has become a depressing time from movies when a movie about Emojis is doing well.

From the reviews people are angry that it even exists.

Despite ratings from the movie being abysmal it's raked in over $25 ,000,000,000 at the US box office and certainly more world wide because parents don't know any better for them to take their kids to a movie that is just one big advertisement.

What should be advertised in this movie? Only saw a short preview in tv and I found it kinda funny!

Quote from: The Laughing Emojion 
Has hurt, but since he's a laughing emoji, he has to laugh:
"Hahaha, that hurts. Haha, my bone is looking through my leg. HAHAHA"

In combination with the contagious laugh, it was kind funny :D

Hell: The Movie. That should have been the real title.

Here are some reviews.

The Verge: “This is a movie about how words aren’t cool, but you can still expect a girl to fall at your feet in response to mild wordplay. Please keep up. Or throw whatever device you’re reading this on into the ocean. Send me a postcard; tell me what it’s like to be free.”

Vox: “It’s amazing that we can put a man on the moon but movies like this still somehow get made.”

The A.V. Club: “The ‘plot’ is really an excuse to hop from one app to another; there are stops in the lands of Candy Crush, WeChat, Just Dance, Instagram, Spotify, and (for the kids!) Dropbox.”

Entertainment Weekly: “There is an awareness pulsing through this movie, as it pulses through our own lives, that so much of what once seemed like progress was the opposite of progress, that our dreams of a better tomorrow were always leading us to a miserable today.”

The New York Times: “For a long time, Hollywood has been propagating the idea that the panderingly, trendily idiotic can be made to seem less so, by polishing it up with bright shiny gloss and enlisting engaging talented performers and writers. I can’t be entirely certain of this, but I would say ‘The Emoji Movie’ takes this notion to the outer limits of credibility.”

Vulture: “Not once does this film rise above the level of humor of literally any real-world use of a simple upside-down-face emoji (whose meaning I tend to translate as ‘Wheeee, life is a horrible hall of mirrors and I am powerless to do anything but smile about it.’) If only my review of this film could be an upside-down-face emoji.”

RogerEbert.com: “A work so completely devoid of wit, style, intelligence or basic entertainment value that it makes that movie based on the Angry Birds app seem like a pure artistic statement by comparison.”

Village Voice: “We’re lying if we grown-ups try to pretend that this one’s not on us ... kids didn’t create the pixelated and thoroughly dumbed-down society this movie has been introduced into, like some sort of trippy, multicolored cinematic virus.”

Yeah. The Popeye movie might not of been any better than this but at least it has something to back up its plot line.

The Emoji Movie is good to see if you want to degrade your existence by paying money for movies that only exist because of money.

Also shows that Hollywood is completely out of ideas and originality has long since died.

^ Oh yeah, indeed.

You shouldn't've even given this crap a thread - it's all advertisement and acknowledgement of its existence! Blergh!

But yeah, with all these idiotic animation films coming out, no wonder I am very cautious if I tell people I like animation. Very specifically the type of animation that is not the awful Hollywood muck! Shame on the company heads for letting these films come out and shame on the audience who then go and see them!

I just don't have much time for Hollywood films anymore. I'll see the odd thing if it has a bit more of a thought-process behind it. Independent films (see other thread) and TV series are more the way these days!
Here lies a signature that has little point.

It has been slowly gathering points on IMDB... from 1,2 on opening day to 1,6 now.

I'm less concerned with reviews and more concerned with box office. Looks to be under-performing, but given its relatively low budget and short production time, I don't know what Sony's expectations are for the movie. Really hoping it doesn't make enough to encourage them to continue this trend.

Oh, who am I kidding? It's Sony Pictures Animation. Their good films are once in a blue moon, and the rest are cheaply made animation age ghetto fodder.

Please God let the upcoming Peter Rabbit movie be good.
