"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

Is it shooting fish in a barrel to put "The Emoji Movie,"a film for children that had no aspirations at any point in its creation other than to milk money out of those children's parents,so high on this list?Perhaps.But in this case,the fish in the barrel are savage fucking piranhas that would devour everything you loved if they remain un-shot.

Review: The Emoji Movie

By Sean Donovan

The internet has spent the past few days savagely ripping apartThe Emoji Movie,the animated film about sentient emojis and the adventures they have within your smartphone.This is a film made specifically for children of the internet,who might gaze upon this Sony vertical integration monstrosity of app references and infomercials for about a minute before heading back to their own smartphones.It's tough to reviewThe Emoji Movie,because it's tough to take its lack of creativity and basic construction seriously when such cynicism and apathy burns off the screen.It singes your eyebrows.No one cared about making this movie;I can't imagine anyone coming up with a criticism the filmmakers would even protest.The Emoji Movieis the unadulterated heart of capitalism pumping out disinterested beats,an infomercial for WeChat here,a paid ad for CandyCrush there,Sony everywhere you look...

numbers frombox office mojo

DunkirkandGirls Trip,both enjoyed very strong second weekends (giving their audiences exactly what they promised...which is all too rare!) and managed to mostly fend off the new challengers which were the animatedEmoji Movieand Charlize Theron kicking all kinds of spy ass asAtomic Blonde.It was a fairly unique weekend since all four titles were within 10 million of each other - they all have a reason to celebrate.The only people not celebrating?Whoever chose to take their families toEmoji Moviewhich isthe worst reviewed movie of the year.

In limited release the doc sequelAn Inconvenient Truth(reviewed),Kathryn Bigelow's race riot dramaDetroit,the Hasidic dramaMenashe(reviewed),andBrigsby Bearall barely dipped their toe into theaters but audiences expressed interest in all four.Expect expansions soon withDetroitgoing wide next weekend.

NYTterribly sad debacle going on withThe Great Comet of 1812on Broadway.When I first heard about Mandy Patinkin's casting I was thrilled because I haven't yet seen the show and totally love that man.But it seems in order to accomodate him (in the role formerly played by Josh Groban) they were ousting their current leading man Okieriete "Oak"Onaodowan (fromHamilton)earlier than his scheduled final date.The optics look bad even though Broadway shows do these type of celebrity casting changes constantly.Patinkin has now dropped out and Oak won't extend and now the entire cast,which includes several actors of color (the show was previously praised for its diverse casting),could be out of jobs because they might close early due to the public outrage.

Exit Video
The new Charlie XCX video "Boys"is a sexy blast.So many celebrity cameos including the internet's current boyfriend Riz Ahmed,diver Tom Daley,and a slew of musicians.There is a chainsaw in this video but as Charli states

NO BOYS WERE HARMED IN THE MAKING OF THIS VIDEO
