The Emoji Movie - -1,000,000,000/10
*breaths in* AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!
I have never been more angry at a film, this movie, this AWFUL movie is everything wrong about the human race, we just need to reset the world, bring on our robot overlords I say. A movie based on Popeye, a beloved cartoon character, was cancelled for this, THIS!!!! I'd rather endure a long, bumpy flight, surrounded by crying babies than watch this movie again. Let's just say I'd sue Sony Pictures for $1,000,000.
Anyway The Emoji Movie (vomits a little) is about an emoji named 'Gene' who has more than one emotion..... But he just wants to fit in, so he and 2 other Emojis named 'Hi-5' and 'Jailbreak' must travel to the phones source code and make him only have one emotion, only on this 'wacky' journey.
Now what's bad about this movie? Literally everything. The animation is rough in places, nothing interesting in the background, music sucks, voice acting sucks, writing sucks, editing awful and the idea itself is the worst thing imaginable. But the worst thing in this film by far is the product placement. Every single scene in takes place in an app and during this scene, they tell you why that app is good and why you should buy it. The apps featured in this film are Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, Dropbox, Shazam, Candy Crush, Spotify and Just Dance. The worst scenes by far are the ones with Dropbox, Candy Crush and Just Dance, with long extensive scenes which are all like "wow, this app is so cool, did you know Dropbox doesn't allow malware?"
Good things in this movie? Ummmmmm, it ends.
Apparently this is the fastest produced animated film ever, so it's no surprise they didn't care what they made. All I can say is don't watch this movie, it's a big piece of rubbish.
