    And now I present to you a poorly animated rip-off of Captain Underpants from the UK!

    See, this is why I hate it when shows take toilet humor up to 11.

    And that thing looks like an even uglier version of Fanboy.

    Oh, and for those not in the know, this was actually based on a book series. At least in the TV series, not-George & not-Harold look less like Dav Pilkey knockoffs than the books:

    So, I finally got around to seeing the Emoji Movie. While it wasn't quite as terrible as I thought it would be, it was still really dumb.

    The plot was super unoriginal (main character feels like he dosen't fit in, so he goes on a quest along with other misfits to try and fit in), it was packed to the brim with cliches and stereotypes, and a lot of the characters were super annoying (especially the High Five emoji). Not to mention the whole film was pretty much an advertisement for certain popular apps like Spotify and YouTube.

    I will say though, it was kinda so bad, it's good. There were certain parts in the movie that I couldn't help but laugh at because they were so cheesy. And I did like the scene with the internet troll and virus bar (with a literal Trojan Horse as the bartender). But I definitely would not watch The Emoji Movie again, and I would not reccomend it to anyone unless they are only watching it to make fun of it MST3K style (like I did). I honestly would rather watch Dorbees 5 times in a row than watch this once again.

    John Lasseter did everything in his power to stop G&J, but it made a decent amount at the box office due to having no competition. Looks like this would be no different, unfortunately.

    I'm really not looking forward to the new Grinch movie. The Grinch looks too cute and cuddly here (he looks like a Who, honestly) when he should look creepy and menacing. Plus the movie just overall feels too much like Despicable Me (which isn't a surprise given that it's from the same studio). Why can't Hollywood just leave the classics alone?

    Because the live action Grinch was considered a trainwreck and a disaster, so they're probably wanting to make up for ti . . . I wouldn't be surprised if we ended up getting a CGI Cat in the Hat movie to make up for that live action version that people hate even more the the live action Grinch.

    I liked the live action Grinch movie. I thought Jim Carrey made an excellent Grinch. The Cat in the Hat movie, on the other hand...

    I know the live action Grinch is something of a cult movie, but critics and Dr. Seuss' estate hated it. After the live action Cat in the Hat, Dr. Seuss' estate prohibited his books and specials from being adapted into live action remakes ever again.

    I dunno...I see nothing wrong with how he looks. he still looks like the grinch. if anything I have to complain about is his voice doesnt fit the character. its not gruff enough.

    I mean he wasn't exactly menacing looking in the cartoon either

    if anything he looks even MORE accurate to the book version

    I don't see what the big problem is. The Grinch more or less looks the same, and we haven't heard enough of Benedict Cumberbatch's voice to really see how gruff he gets. At least this looks a lot better than Illumination's take on The Lorax, which the fangirls totally ruined thanks to the Once-ler's appearance, not to mention the padding and the overall diminished environmental message the book and TV special delivered.

    They've really been marketing the crap out of Sherlock Gnomes. I keep getting these annoying ads for it on YT, and they will not go away.

    And look at this stupid poster for it:
    I just... wow. I'd say this is just as bad as this. Not only is the gnome's face rather scary (he looks so dead and soulless), but the "pun" dosen't make any sense at all. "Gnomepool"? "Kicking grass"? Boy, whoever writes these puns should start doing stand-up. I've seen better ones on Laffy Taffy wrappers. :rolleyes:

    (Sorry to go on a rant there. I just had to express my annoyance with this movie.)

    It's already been dubbed the worst movie poster in cinema history.
