The Emoji Movie Is An Appalling Pile Of 💩! See What Critics Are Saying About Sony"s Cash Grab!

Like it or not, we have become a society of smartphone addicts — and we pay for it with 💩 like this is! No one was expecting The Emoji Movie to be a masterpiece after learning it would follow defunct emojis trying to break out of a universe inside our smartphones. But based on the reviews, the [...] Like it or not, we have become a society of smartphone addicts -- and we pay for it with 💩 like this is! No one was expecting The Emoji Movie to be a masterpiece after learning it would follow defunct emojis trying to break out of a universe inside our smartphones. But based on the reviews, the Sony Animation film is far worse than it's main character, "Meh" (voiced by T.J. Miller) -- and was actually better described as the throw-away character "Poop" (voiced by Sir Patrick Stewart). Photos: These Celebs Totally Look Like Emojis! Critics were not only diss-app-ointed by the story (which most described as a cheap rip-off of Inside Out), but the amount of product placement was enough to make any theater goer look like 😡. Though we're sure kids will LOVE special appearances by YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Spotify, the Sony-owned Crackle app, and of course... DropBox! See the 😞 review roundup (below) to get a better idea of why this film scored a dismal 3% on Rotten Tomatoes -- and, if you dare, see The Emoji Movie in theaters now! Jordan Hoffman, NY Daily News: "This failed attempt to create a story from a texting trend makes the worst comic book adaptation look like Shakespeare. The script is entirely predictable despite making absolutely no sense. It not only fails to entertain, it will leave you 😡." John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter: " It is fast and colorful enough to attract young kids, but offers nearly nothing to their parents. If only this smartphone-centric dud, so happy to hawk real-world apps to its audience, could have done the same in its release strategy — coming out via Snapchat, where it would vanish shortly after arrival. But even that wouldn't be fast enough." Owen Gleiberman, Variety: "The cartoon ideograms from your smartphone get their own animated adventure, but do they deserve it? Actually, they deserve better than this witless Inside Out knockoff." Matt Singer, ScreenCrush: "No animated movie outside the Cars franchise has raised more logistical questions about its strange setting than The Emoji Movie. Here is just one question I had: In one scene, Poop (and his son!) exit a restroom stall. When a sentient poop uses a toilet, what do they excrete? What is in a poop's poop? On second thought, don't tell me." Emily Yoshida, Vulture: "In the mock tradition of countless superior Pixar films before it, it's attempting to sell a sense of childlike wonder and fascination with an ordinary, everyday object: your smartphone. And in doing so, it is one of the darkest, most dismaying films I have ever seen, much less one ostensibly made for children." Glenn Kenny, The New York Times: "For a long time, Hollywood has been propagating the idea that the panderingly, trendily idiotic can be made to seem less so, by polishing it up with bright shiny gloss and enlisting engaging talented performers and writers. I can't be entirely certain of this, but I would say The Emoji Movie takes this notion to the outer limits of credibility." Lindsay Bahr, The Associated Press: "If you're worried about whether or not this is some big smartphone advertisement, it only kind of is. There's a whole journey through the Spotify app, and they have to get through a dance competition in the Just Dance app to get where they're going, and there is a line that seems to have been written by marketing folks about how illegal malware can't get into the protected DropBox app. Oh and while it's not mentioned, the Sony-owned Crackle app is always on Alex's home screen." Alissa Wilkinson, Vox: "Most likely, it was going to be a garbage fire. And now that I've seen it, I can confirm that suspicion: The Emoji Movie is a waste of time, resources, and a bunch of comedians' voices, plus a premise that actually had the potential to do some small good in the world. It's less of a movie and more of an insult." David Elrich, IndieWire: "How exciting to enter a film world in which all of the characters literally just tell us who they are over and over and over again like they're not physical manifestations of the feelings that define them! The brilliant Maya Rudolph adds all sorts of passive-aggressive texture to Smiler, the homicidal smiley face who lords over this place, it's just too bad that every single one of her lines is some variation of 'can't you see how happy I am?' Yes, yes we can. Your body is a giant smile with legs." Vadmi Rizov, A.V. Club: "Central character Gene (T.J. Miller), the inexplicably named "meh" emoji, must go on a journey of self-discovery and learn to accept himself, which chimes with [director Tony Leondis's] own childhood, growing up gay in a religious household... After viewing the final product, Miller's reasoning for making the movie sounds more believable: 'Sony knows we down to get motherfucking paid globally.'" [Image via Sony Pictures.].....»»

Robert Pattinson appears on two covers for Wonderland's Autumn Issue, and in one of them, the Twilight star wears a pink wig to accessorize his Dior outfit. Getting a Nicki Minaj vibe! Related: Robert Pattinson Used To Be Roommates With Dustin Diamond AKA Screech?? In the publication, the Good Time actor -- who doubles as guest editor -- speaks to author Yuval Noah Harari about his proposed theme for the issue. According to an excerpt obtained by E! News, Kristen Stewart's ex said: "I wanted the theme of the Wonderland issue to be something like 'The Nature of Reality' and contrast people whose sole purpose seems to be to pervert reality with a cross-section of people like you, who seem to have a more healthy and comprehensive understanding of it."' The Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind writer responds: "I think that in a way you're in the business of creating reality, at least from my viewpoint as a historian and philosopher. Images and fantasies and fictions basically rule the world. The tools we use are built by engineers and technicians and chemists and physicists, but the aims that we use these tools for, they are basically our dreams. So many people spend all their lives chasing a dream that was implanted in their minds by some movie, TV series, poem, novel, whatever – of course it is rarely just one, you can't create a culture based on just one piece of art. I'm fascinated by the way that art and fiction are really the movers and shakers of the world." See more pics in the batch (above)! [Image via Sandy Kim/Wonderland.].....»»

On Sunday, the Pitch Perfect 3 star accused the media company of participating in an "intentional take down" scheme after they published articles alleging she lied about her real name and age. In fact, while chatting with Channel Seven's Sunday Night, Wilson got very emotional as she discussed the devastation she felt after reading the publisher's "brutal" pieces about her private life. Related: Rebel Reveals She Was Harassed By A Well-Known Celeb On how she felt "bullied" by the company, Rebel explained: "They have no idea how actually brutally hard it is ... yes I am an actress and I am in the public eye, but I'm a human being." Fair point. She continued: "They were just absolutely brutal and bullied me into the ground." When asked if she believes the entertainment company participated in an intentional take down, Rebel said that was "definitely" the case. Oof. Still the Bridesmaids alum has had the last laugh, as back in June, she won her legal case against Bauer Media. The judge ruled in Rebel's favor as she proved the magazine articles DID damage her reputation and marketability. The 37-year-old was awarded a $4.5 million payout in October. Unsurprisingly, Bauer Media is trying to appeal the ruling. Hopefully, for Rebel's sake, the appeal won't rule in BM's favor. Fingers crossed!! [Image via FayesVision/WENN.].....»»

Jim Carrey Says Late Ex Cathriona White Altered Medical Records To Make It Look Like He Gave Her Herpes

Jim Carrey is still trying to prove his late ex-girlfriend attempted to frame him in the herpes accusation — and according to claims, Cathriona White cooked up quite the elaborate scheme. The comedian has been entangled in a messy lawsuit with his ex's estranged mother, Brigid Sweetman, and widower, Mark Burton, who claim she became suicidal [...] Jim Carrey is still trying to prove his late ex-girlfriend attempted to frame him in the herpes accusation -- and according to claims, Cathriona White cooked up quite the elaborate scheme. The comedian has been entangled in a messy lawsuit with his ex's estranged mother, Brigid Sweetman, and widower, Mark Burton, who claim she became suicidal after the comedian allegedly gave her herpes. Carrey, on the other hand, has been adamant that White already had herpes when the two met. His latest allegation involves the suicide victim faking medical records to make it seem like she was clean before meeting him. Related: Jim Explains How Much Tommy Lee Jones Hated Him According to new legal docs obtained by TMZ, Carrey claims White got her friend's STD-free medical records and altered them to make it look like they were hers. White then apparently presented the before and after records as proof, making it seem like she got genital herpes after having sex with the Liar, Liar star. Carrey says text messages from White to her friend proves his case. In the messages, White allegedly asks her friend multiple times to go to Planned Parenthood for the records -- one of the texts reportedly says: "I need to see the layout ... I will need to work on it before I give it to him." These new claims are just the latest development in the ongoing lawsuit. Now, Carrey's team is making an ultimatum: either fork over the real medical records or admit White had multiple STDs before ever meeting the actor. Related: Jim Speaks Out On Release Of Cathriona's Suicide Note But the prosecution isn't falling for it. Michael Avenatti, attorney for White's estate, told TMZ that Carrey's new claim is "complete and utter bullshit," adding: "When the truth comes out, Mr. Carrey and certain of his advisers are going to be criminally prosecuted for their conduct in this case. They better buckle up." We'll buckle up as well, as it sounds like this legal drama's just getting started. [Image via Instagram/WENN.].....»»
