‘ My name is Gene. I’m a MEH emoji.’ – The Emoji Movie, 2017

Good Monday everyone! How are we all? As you guys know, I’m bogged down with a lot of work and assignments, so I will be giving you a short review today. I am someone that works with noise in the background, which means I watch a lot of movies that come out of Sky, Netflix, Amazon or any other streaming site I have a subscription to. I tend to come across a lot of awful movies, and trust me this one is *awful*. Without further ado, here we have The Emoji Movie.

This was a thing! – The Emoji Movie, Sony Pictures Entertainment, 2017

The Emoji Movie is a pile of gar- no wait… I should at least try give you guys a non bias review… at least give this thing a chance…
Let me start over… *clears throat*
The Emoji Movie is an animation, much like any other we see in this day and age, based on the trend of emojis. It is about Gene, a multi-expressional emoji, who decides he needs to set out to become a normal emoji. Gene is an emoji that lives in Textopolis (very hard thinking on this name guys…), a city inside the phone of his user Alex. He is the son of two ‘meh’ emojis (😒) named Mel and Mary, and is able to make multiple expressions despite his parents being singular face emojis. He goes on a mission to make himself a normal emoji, and makes some friends along the way.
Okay, there’s the brief synopsis – I can stop being unbiased now…

This is so true for this movie… – The Emoji Movie, Sony Pictures Entertainment, 2017

I went into this movie with an open mind, I had seen it hadn’t done too well on any of the scoring systems for movies. I tried to get on with this movie. I really did. But…this movie is 2 hours of my life I will never get back. You may say that’s an exaggeration, but I do not. It was awful. It was just painful to watch. I can honestly say it just seemed like an advert for the mobile apps Candy Crush, the match three game, Dropbox, the safe file app and Spotify, the well known music app. It didn’t seem to have a story other than “here’s some huge apps we’re going to show you, because we were paid a lot of money to show them off to you.” I am struggling to find anything good to say. I feel like the actors in this movie were wasted on it. Such big names for something so awful… honestly, it’s a tad depressing. Maybe I only feel this way because I was watching it whilst half asleep, stressed out and missing nearly a pint of blood (I had given blood that morning, and just needed to chill out with a movie.

I’m sorry this review has been so awful! Better thing next week… I promise!
