THE EMOJI MOVIE (2017)

WELCOME TO THE SECRET WORLD INSIDE YOUR PHONE

Classic puns and plays on words right from the start; immediate signs that I was going to enjoy this animated cinematic adventure. Everything from the depiction of the emoji queue to the semi-personification of internet trolls and spam, this movie took something so simple and really made it playful and hilarious. Really the way they incorporated all of the different phone applications and made the wallpaper into some infinite thing like the universe… all of it was so clever and inventive. I love when something fresh and new comes along and actually works in a way that gives you a real sense of amusement. Honestly, I was a little worried that this was going to be like a Sausage Party situation. That movie was hilarious but just too much of too many things and I’m still shaking my head at the thought of that food orgy.

prequels, sequels, and remakes… oh my!

First of all, I completely realize that I have been slacking when it comes to these updates. I could come up with a million excuses but we all know that excuses are like belly buttons aka everybody’s got some kind of version of one; ergo, I won’t bother. It’s not like I haven’t watched any cinematic adventures during the time of my impromptu hiatus, because I absolutely have. A day without watching a movie is like a day without eating breakfast… it’s possible, but, it’s the most important meal of the day!

Second of all, this post isn’t technically going to be a post about a specific movie. Rather, a post about a subject that I feel very strongly about when it comes to movies in general. Prequels, sequels, and remakes or reboots… whatever word you want to use for them.

THEY ARE EVERYWHERE! Why are they literally EVERYWHERE?! It’s insane!

I have no problem accepting the fact that every generation is going to have their take on certain classics such as the superhero genre. We’ve had Adam West, Michael Keaton (aka the best Batman of all,) George Clooney, the tragic Val Kilmer rendition, Christian Bale, and now Ben Affleck… totally understandable to keep Batman going. The same can be said for Superman, Spiderman, etc. There have been awesome versions and there have been versions that I think we can all agree should never be spoken of again (cough Val Kilmer cough).
