Please, anyone reading this, do not go out and spend money on this 'film'. By doing so, you will be paving the way for the inevitable Emoji cinematic universe or 'Fidget Spinner: The Movie'. Never before have I deemed a movie to be evil, but the very act of taking the icons you use on your phone to convey some sort of emotion and converting them into the subject of an actual movie aimed at little kids is deeply sinister and shameless. A movie like this only further encourages the tech and screen obsessed children of 2017 to suck harder on the corporate teat that has consumed their entire short existence. Products like The Emoji Movie contribute heavily to the dumbing down of the culture and will only succeed in producing even more mindless and braindead drones. Just imagine for a second an entire generation of kids who grew up watching The Emoji Movie. I shudder at the thought. Cynical and shamelessly corporate crap like this 'film' only contributes further to a degenerate and dying culture. I mean we got the Angry Birds Movie last year and The Lego Ninjago Movie is still to come. How have children's movies come to this? Apps and plastic toy bricks are now greenlit into multi million dollar movies. This is child exploitation by corporations at it's finest, and the sad thing is many people don't seem to care. Watching magical and inspiring films as a child can help shape your morals, personality and even an artistic sensibility. I shudder to think of the types of people The Emoji Movie will produce.
The Emoji Movie
The Emoji Movie unlocks the never-before-seen secret world inside your smartphone. Hidden within the messaging app is Textopolis, a bustling city where all your favorite emojis live, hoping to be selected by the phone's user. In this world, each emoji has only one facial expression - except for Gene, an exuberant emoji who was born without a filter and is bursting with multiple expressions. Determined to become "normal" like the other emojis, Gene enlists the help of his handy best friend Hi-5 and the notorious code breaker emoji Jailbreak. Together, they embark on an epic "app-venture" through the apps on the phone, each its own wild and fun world, to find the Code that will fix Gene. But when a greater danger threatens the phone, the fate of all emojis depends on these three unlikely friends who must save their world before it's deleted forever.
