You know I still feel there's the germ of a good idea for a story to be made out of the idea behind emojis. Somewhere between "Wreck-it Ralph" and "Inside Out", but to no ones surprise the story we got was apparently the worst thing to happen to movies this year. I had no intention on ever seeing this movie. I have no snarky remarks about it either, it's just not something that landed on my radar. I'm far too invested in "Thor: Ragnarok" and "Justice League" to give a damn about a movie like this, but people seem to be questioning their lives over this movie. It really is quite incredible.
I wonder though if the negative hype will come back to bite me. Like, will I be disappointed if this movie isn't the worst thing I've seen this year?
I wonder if this film will reemerge as a strange cult film in the next twenty years. I hope not but I won't be surprised if it at least becomes some sort of drinking game.
