Starring Anna Faris, T.J. Miller, Patrick Stewart, Sofia Vergara and James Corden, the new The Emoji Movie trailer is here and it has Gene (Miller), a multi-expressional emoji, on a journey to become a normal emoji…
I thought that as an avid user of emojis on my themoviemylife Instagram in particular, that I’d somehow automatically like a movie about cute yellow emojis. I mean, how bad could it be? I was after all completely crazy about a particular bunch of gorgeous ‘joy inducing yellow beauties’; the minions for quite some time. I may still be obsessed, actually. I digress. I just wish that at this point I felt more confident about this Tony Leondis directed film. I don’t know…
Chris O’Dowd, Jane Lynch and Parker Posey are some of the comedy stars of co-writer and director Christopher Guest’s latest movie, Mascots. A comedy focused on the very competitive world of sports mascots? Of course there are a bunch of entertaining, kooky, quirky and very colourful characters…
I already find myself laughing each time I look at Jane Lynch’s face in the above main photo. So bring on the madness, I say!
Fred Willard, Oscar Nunez, Sandra Rosko and John Michael Higgins make up more of the talented funny men and women.
Set in hell, Mila Kunis, Susan Sarandon, T.J. Miller and Danny McBride make up some of the cast of stop-motion animation adult comedy, Hell & Back.
I definitely smiled more than I laughed as I watched Hell & Back, which I think makes it a mildly entertaining to quite entertaining movie. This of course isn’t the ideal reaction, but I’m glad I made it to the end.
Directed by Tom Gianas and Ross Shuman, I enjoyed the voice work and some funny moments such as all the dialogue of the character responsible for welcoming residents to hell and administering torture. I think that Augie, the one that ‘looks like he only eats dough’ is cute in a perfectly adorably cuddly way. There’s also a great joke about cat owners that I won’t spoil.
Overall, the devil, played by Bob Odenkirk is definitely my favourite character. Reason being, his voice, his dialogue and the physicality of the devil when sporting his red ‘suit.’
Tune in for a non-demanding stop-motion comedy, especially if you don’t mind plenty of expletives and adult dialogue.
