Are you smiling to see The Emoji Movie

Have you ever thought about what the faces on your phone do in their spare time? Or what it must be like to be stuck making the same face and feeling the same emotion constantly? These are the thoughts behind Sony Animation’s The Emoji Movie, starring T.J. Miller, James Corden, Anna Faris, Maya Rudolph, and Patrick Stewart. The film follows Gene, a “meh” emoji who feels like he doesn’t fit in with the other residents of Textopolis because he can feel and express emotions other than his predisposed, bored “meh.” Searching for something more than the monotonous daily grind of Textopolis– and compelled to action by a bounty on his head from the villainous Smiler– Gene teams up with his friend Hi-5 to explore the rest of the phone and try to find the hacker Jailbreak, the only one who can help them defeat Smiler. ...  [ read more ]

Karate Kid 2010 bullying in its finest form

I’m going to admit it – I’m not a fan of remakes of movies that certainly dont need remakes – Karate Kid from the 80’s still stands tall “Sweep the leg Johnny!” is still heard monthly in my life! When I heard about the remake being called the kung fu kid I was just awestruck… how and why would someone remake this classic? ...  [ read more ]

Iron Man 2 rocks as toys and as a movie

Iron Man 2 is the 3rd most hyped movie this summer behind Shreck3 and Toy Story 3.  I got to an early show and even still I wont be the first one to tell you it wasn’t as good as the first movie.  Lets be honest = we’re not looking or working for Oscars here… we’re looking for the minds/hearts/souls of comic fan boys (and a few fan girls). First let me say this is completely spoiler free. ...  [ read more ]
