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. Thank the great ghost of Charlie Chaplin that this movie didn’t go anywhere near that route.

On to the PPCs:

AVA’S POSSESSIONS (2015)

TAGLINE: SHE CAN HANDLE HER SPIRITS.

I originally stumbled (or rather, scrolled) upon this movie via Netflix about a month or two ago and just kept putting it on the back burner each time. Finally, I have given it the time of day and I have to say that, if I had set any kind of expectations, it would have surpassed them.

As someone who thoroughly enjoys thrillers, horror movies, movies about paranormal activity, and things like that, I’ve seen a ton of the same ole same. Going into this one, I didn’t really know what to expect because you rarely ever see a movie about AFTER the exorcism. AFTER the lead character has been spiritually rescued. Especially one that is supposed to be seen more as a comedy. I don’t know how or why I put this movie off for as long as I did, but, that’s neither here nor there at this point.

Sidenote: Yes I do totally believe in possession, spiritual presences, etc. Absolutely. That doesn’t change the fact that I found this movie extremely funny.

HOW TO BE SINGLE (2016)

TAGLINE: WELCOME TO THE PARTY

A fitting tagline for the christening post of this cinematic sanctuary. Let me preface this by saying that it’s about time there were a movie about a female who enjoyed being single and wasn’t a basket-case, mistress, murderer, or miserable while searching for a happily ever after. Well, “Alice” is looking for a happily ever after, but, a happily ever after with herself.

Of course most of it is at least somewhat predictable, but, that’s inevitable in this kind of thing. We all know you’ve got to kiss a lot of frogs to find your prince or, in this case, find out that you don’t even need a prince at this juncture in life just because others seem to. It’s 2016, the damsel in distress to independent women ratio should have changed greatly by now.
