    I agree. And the reasons why are probably money, popularity, and Hollywood is running out of ideas.

    It's not so much they're out of ideas. They only want ideas that would warrant the most money, or they think would warrant it, regardless of how stupid that idea is.

    ^ There. That.

    Hollywood has come to a point where it's not even about quality or storytelling anymore, it's all about profits and revenue.

    Well, actually, Hollywood has been guilty of this for a long time now, it just seems more blatant now that just about any random and insignificant thing you can imagine under the sun is being turned into a movie. Heck, they're probably already working on a fidget spinners movie as we speak.

    Yeah. I'm glad Disney is still making great movies, like Big Hero 6, Zootopia, and Moana.

    Well, like I just said, at least Disney is still making good movies in my opinion. But, Pixar, do we REALLY need a Cars 3?? I just hope Coco is good.

    But about the Emoji Movie, I still think it's gonna be even worse than Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure, but who knows? It could end up being funny after all. But I wouldn't get my hopes up about it.

    What's with those fidget spinners, anyway? Why do all the elementary school kids want one all of a sudden? It's just like when Silly Bands were the big thing in elem. school.

    And if filmgoers want more "originality" in American cinema, they need to vote with their dollars and go see those original films whenever they do crop up. After all, money talks.

    I agree. Not only is it a bad idea, but itlooks like a major Inside Out ripoff. Some of the characters look similar to ones from that movie, and some of the humans resemble Riley's classmates!
    I agree! Captain Underpants looks promising, and reminds me of the Peanuts movie!

    I was thinking it was more of a ripoff of the Lego Movie (the titles are similar, the plots are kinda similar, that girl emoji looks a lot like Wyldstyle), but now that I think about it, it does kinda seem like an Inside Out ripoff, too.

    The Meh emoji reminds me more of Sour Bill from Wreck-it Ralph, both in looks and voice.

    Holy crap, you're right! I never realized that! But seriously though, doesn't that girl emoji that's the main emoji's love interest (can't think of either of their names right now) look just like Wyldstyle from The Lego Movie?
