How to make (The emoji movie)

1: Animate the film using earwax and toe jam.
2: Don't even write a script and have the voice actors say whatever comes to mind while the characters randomly move their mouths.
3: Make every character look like something from your worst nightmare.
4: Have each person be either annoying or unlikable so the audience hates it more.
5: Motion control is great for CGI films, how about Xbox Kinect for the arm movement.
6: Speaking of movement, do it a lot, even if it means waving your arms in the air every time you speak or spinning around for no reason.
7: Show that you aren't scared to pass the boundaries and add sexual innuendos to every scene.
8: Barricade your house, stock on food and water and try to prepare your for a lot of hate mail and a few death threats
Viola! You've done a terrible job. In fact, it sounds like an angry mob is coming to your doorsteps right now. I'd run if I were you and get the hell out of this ...more

This movie is just for money and nothing else. However, that isn't what angers me. What angers me is that THEY CHOSE THIS OVER THE ANIMATED POPEYE MOVIE! I WAS ANTICIPATING THAT MOVIE EVER SINCE I FOUND THE TRAILER! IT HAD THE CHARACTERS, VOICE ACTING(Or at least similar), DESIGN, COMEDY, AND EVERYTHING! I understand that they lost the director, But they could of at least tried! If they didn't throw in any product placements, used the cartoon's elements, and gave the fans what they want, I bet this could be one of the best animated movies of the year, and definitely one of the best adaptations to an old cartoon. You don't get many of those. I personally think the only good recent adaptations are Peabody and Sherman and The Peanuts Movie. Peabody and Sherman was educational and I actually learned from it and Peanuts movie was funny and had a bright colorful art style and kept the characters and appealed to the fans. Popeye was one of my favorite cartoons as a child. I wasn't born ...more

This is currently one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen in my life. So many pop culture references and dead memes for this. Screw this movie and everything about it. A lot of wasted potential as well...

Whoever put this movie on Number 1 is the best! I hate this movie so much. The designs are awful and the characters were not as good as I expected them to be when they announced it.

The main thing that kind of bothers me is that there is a character named... Poop Daddy! I'll get back to that in a minute or two, but for now... Let's just focus on the animation and how Sony Pictures did a terrible job at making this movie.

To start this off, Sony made the characters look really horrible... not to mention "cringe-worthy". And the animation looks very out of place. Basically, the plot involves Gene (who is a yellow emoji with arms and legs) who has more than one emoji expression. He goes on this adventure (Or as Sony calls it... an "App-venture") to become normal like the other emojis. He teams up with Hi-5 (who is literally a hand with feet) and Jailbreak who is a code-breaker emoji (I found out she was actually a princess later on) Anyways, the character that really creeps ...more

Fifty Shades Darker Fifty Shades Darker Product Image

I enjoy leaving the theater with the taste of popcorn and candy, not with the taste of vomit and sadness.

All of these are boring. Almost as boring as Twilight. Women watch it but get mad when guys watch porn. Hypocrites

Why do people want to see this crap. The worst part is after all the abuse in the first movie she goes back to that creep

How many do we need

Transformers: The Last Knight Transformers: The Last Knight Product Image

While still bad I thought it was an improvement over 2, 3, and 4 because the final battle wasn't in a city or desert any more it was finally in space.

I thought Age of Exclusive-Trash was bad until I saw this movie.

I would vote for other much more deserving contenders, but those ones are overfilled, but this certain movie deserves to be at this very spot. I was baffled when I watched this film, everything from the overstretched but rushed plot, weak humor, bland characters (they couldn't even get a split-personality British robotic BUTLER to be exciting, what the hell.), a wasted, but talented cast ( such as Anthony Hopkins and Mark Wahlberg) and undeveloped pacing. I will give credit where it's due, Michael Bay sports dazzling visuals, a dramatic soundtrack and various chase/action/fight scenes that'll leave you satisfied for a few minutes.It is not the worst, I can give you that. But it is horrendously mediocre, maybe even awful.

I chose this simply because I expected a lot from the last knight, but sadly my hopes were wrong

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul Product Image

A big insult to the Diary of a Wimpy Kid film franchise and I hope the license for this film gets revoked ASAP. It literally has all 3 aspects of a terrible comedy movie: bad characterization, lack of real humor and moments to make people cringe. In two words, this film is an: EPIC FAIL! It received negative criticism, thanks to the new cast. Jason Drucker, unlike Zachary Gordon from the last 3 DOAWK films, is so whiny and his behavior is cruel. The beloved Devon Bostick is gone; Charlie Wright, the new actor who played Rodrick Heffley, did a horrible job acting and played the Rodrick whose character resembles nothing but that of a bossy egomaniac. In contrast to Rachael Harris who played the thoughtful and funny Mrs. Heffley, Alicia Silverstone plays the Susan Heffley whose character is more toxic and overbearing. Steve Zahn was so funny in the previous 3 DOAWK films and this actor who played Frank Heffley always cared about his son; however, Tom Everett Scott plays the Frank Heffley ...more

They turned Greg into a 7 year old, ROdrick is now a 30 year old emo crackhead. Manny is still high but more high, the parents look like drug dealers and the jokes are so cheap and so as the budget that even a video of me yeeting a banana at my friend has more budget than this trash movie. Thank you.

I’m glad I grew up with the FIRST three movies and not this pile of garbage I feel bad for the kids in this generation that will see this instead of the OG’s

I watched the trailer and I was pretty mad about the new cast, why can't they just keep the old one? But they couldn't for whatever reason and now the characters don't even fit the book, very disappointing. They honestly all look about 8 now, and I especially dislike Susan Heffley who's really annoying. And the movie's plot was gross and didn't make any sense. I didn't enjoy this movie at all.

The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature Product Image

Computer Animated movies are horrible now. Every modern one is pointless, with a pointless cast, plot, cheesy jokes, toilet humor, and downright annoying characters. Whatever happened to Shrek, Madagascar, Finding Nemo, or Toy Story?

No matter how bad people say a movie is, Hollywood will still demand a sequel. Welcome to the new movie era.

The first movie is already one of the worst animated movies I've ever seen. It does NOT need a sequel.

It's going to suck. I can't believe Jackie Chan is in this. Probably just to get paid.

The Boss Baby The Boss Baby Product Image

As much as I like Dreamworks (on Pokemon Moon, I named my male Primarina Stephano, after the Italian Sea Lion in Madagascar 3), this is where they ran out of ideas. It's about a mature infant (because we haven't heard that before *cough* Family Guy *cough*) who works as a spy and is trying to prove that babies are cuter than puppies with the help of a young child. That premise makes no sense, and I do not plan on seeing it.

Great... this got nominated for Best Animated Feature Film at the 90th Academy Awards. Really, Oscars? Really? I can name more than 10 animated films right off the top of my head that weren't nominated and deserve to be nominated more than The Boss Baby.

I am a pup lover, but I like this movie despite being offended somehow. The visuals are amazing, the plot/concept was just weird but it's enjoyable, the characters are likeable to me not like everyone else, and more.

I didn't even watch this because I knew it would be completely stupid. Dreamworks used to make stuff like Shrek and Madagascar. What the hell is this garbage?

Baywatch Baywatch Product Image

I'm calling it right now, by the end of the year this movie will be 1 of the biggest box office bombs of the year

I know this will be crap

Why is Detroit number 21? That movie was acclaimed, and is one of the best of the year. Baywatch is easily top 3 worst.

Zack Effron is in it so it's rubbish

Justice League Justice League Product Image

Better than suicide squad but BvS was like 3 times better than this. This movie is really bad, like laughably bad. The villain is just bland, it's just a cgi monster that smashes things. There are a lot of story conveniences like the scene when Bruce meets Aquaman and there's a drawing on the wall that explains everything, the action sequences and visuals are lame. The narrative is exactly the same as the avengers. The characters that are introduced do not have development. The score and sountrack are forgettable, pure remixes and non interesting music. I don't also like the choice of color that they put on this film, I don't know, it just... doesn't fit. The worst thing is the cgi on superman's face and the fact that he revives and he ends all by himself, endind the movie in an awful way.

This movie was just laughable..no not even. This movie was just bad. Like 1/5 type bad. Horrible trash. The movie had so many awkward moments that made me cringe (such as the actor of Flash trying to be funny). This was supposed to be DC's Avengers, but all of the plots and background stories about the characters were rushed by because the editors wanted to put a bunch of mind numbing CGI in the movie. You don't have any emotional attachments to any of the characters and the fight scenes did not pack any punch, because all of it was bland CGI. I give this movie a 1/5 and it should be on the top 10.

I can't believe people hate the movie so much.It is actually a solid movie with great actors in it,great effects and it covers one of the most popular comic book heroes.Marvel is better than DC but they are making a great job as well.I have watched all of their movies and they are all really entertaining! Justice League is no exception! I give this movie 10/10!

Garbage. Absolutely cliché. Plus the new version of the flash is a total piss bag and very annoying. Superman should have stayed dead since there is no point for the other characters since superman can do everything. DC should try a little harder to make their story lines more realistic. Overall, the movie was a overrated cliché that was grossly predictable.

Death Note Death Note Product Image

They completly ruined my favorite anime of all time. They changed Light's last name to Turner, switched Light and Misa (or shall I say "Mia's") personalities, made L black (no racism intended) and turned Ryuk into some horribly terrifying monster (what happened to our awesome, sarcastic Ryuk, huh? ) Also they left out Mello, Near and Matt. Near was my favorite character in the anime and my #husbando, and we can't forget the ever so important ( no sarcasm intended) chocolate loving Mello! He dis play a very important role in the show. And last but not least, mister "4 minutes of pure awesomeness" MATT! he played a very important role in the show. Without him, Mello wouldn't have been able to kidnap Takada, and the whole show might have had a different conclusion. Overall -153/10

This isn't like top 10 bad, but it sucked. It does not go along with the original anime at all. Light acts more like an angry bullied brat rather than the calm collected malevolent genius he actually was. The girl was like Misa, only she was more annoying and more malevolent than Light himself. L was a cool character, but it seemed like he wanted revenge and was more vile and angry than his usual eccentric and chill personality.

This and the Magic School Bus reboot have to be the two worst things Netflix has done this year in 2017. Honorable mention goes to them making some of their new anime titles exclusive to them and not simulcasting them. That aside, Death Note and Ghost in the Shell are just two of the most recent examples of why live-action adaptations of anime just don't work.

I talked about this movie in immense detail on my remix of the worst movies ever, but some of this bears repeating. Directed by someone only known for schlocky horror movies, this movie goes against everything that made Death Note successful. I'm not kidding, every concept of Death Note is ruined. The intense cat and mouse game between L and Light is replaced with cliché'd high school romance drivel, the complexity of Light becoming more of a monster while the shinigami becoming more humanized is completely lost, Light goes from one of the best anti-heroes of all time to an obnoxious punk that's only smart when the plot needs him to be, L is the Jared Letto performance of 2017, and Ryuk has no purpose in the overall narrative and looks ridiculous on top of that. Even on its own, it's a cliché'd Final Destination wannabe with zero depth. They couldn't even get the music right, it instead tries to fulfill the current trend of 80s synth music. A true disgrace to the source material, ...more

The Mummy The Mummy Product Image

I keep seeing ads of this damn movie on YouTube, I can't even watch a video! - Datguyisweird666

I didn't even see the movie and I'm glad I didn't. - shiftaltkey

Jesus did the effects are trash in this movie lol - AlphaQ

I would like them to stop ruining classics with feminist twists or "liberalism" and politically correct stupidities. Here, as much as people like Ahmanet, this character ruined the movie with its hollow presence and stupid motives. I hope that in a new movie or sequel Ahmanet or Nick will never come out again, and Imhotep will appear instead, which is undoubtedly a good character, and basically the god of mummies.

The Contenders
Tom and Jerry: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory Tom and Jerry: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory Product Image

While The Emoji Movie most definitely has to be the worst animated movie, if not, THE worst movie of 2017, this cruddy crossover on the other hand is most definitely the worst direct-to-DVD feature of 2017 tied with Surf's Up 2: Wavemania. Honestly, Warner Bros. is just milking the Tom and Jerry franchise dry at this point. The Wizard of Oz crossover was already bad enough looking back on it, and it's as if these direct-to-DVD features of Tom and Jerry are just made solely to take up a movie time slot on Cartoon Network's weekly schedule.

But what makes this stand out as quite possibly one of the worst Tom and Jerry movies of all time is that the movie blatantly tries to assert itself to be an original movie. Warner Bros., I think you might have been watching too much Teen Titans Go! and Suicide Squad (oh, God. Please don't make Tom and Jerry cross over with them! ) and lost all common business sense that every smart entertainment company should have. Simply mashing two ...more - ModernSpongeBobSucks

It was alright but the threesome between Tom, Jerry and Willy Wonka's wife was really cringeworthy. - AlphaQ

All you need is to watch Nostalgia Critic's and Saberspark's reviews on this movie to see how pointless and absurd this direct-to-DVD cash grab is. Really, the only Tom and Jerry DVD movie "crossover" I liked was the Nutcracker's Tale since they actually made an ORIGINAL story out of it. However, this movie is the complete opposite. Honestly, I'd wish Warner Bros. would stop pumping out all these sub-par direct-to-DVD movies. Whatever happened to good direct-to-DVD movies like Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island? - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Tom & jerry & knuckles featuring Dante from the devel may cry series definitive edition with bloopers

The Bye Bye Man The Bye Bye Man Product Image

Everything about this movie is garbage. The cinematography is some of the worst I've ever seen, the acting ranges from decent to terrible by the standards of a middle-school play, the CGI looks like trash even when compared to its budget, and the editing is the definition of lazy. What sells this movie as the worst of the year (and one of the worst I've seen in general) is the plot and writing. Every scene in this movie is a cliché fest, but the dialogue exchanges never sound human, The Bye-Bye Man is another all-powerful entity that was clearly trying to rip-off the Slender Man and Candy Man, and even as a concept the movie makes no sense! The Bye Bye Man tricks characters into killing their family and friends, and the only way to stop him is to do exactly that. Excuse me, what? Did you even read the script you just wrote?! The trailers and the movie being marketed as a "true story" are all lies as well. This movie is a complete dumpster fire, one that's far greater than ...more

More like the Pee Pee Poo Poo Man.

Watching/reading reviews, this movie looks so terribly cliche and stupid

The Pee Pee Poo Poo Man (You wont be laughing when you see him)

Woody Woodpecker

OH GOD. NO. KILL ME. SHOOT ME. ANYWAY YOU WANT ME.

Monster Trucks Monster Trucks Product Image

The creators of this movie think that this idea is unique, but there's a fine line between unique and lazy, sure nobody has done this idea, a monster truck that has an actual monster in it, but when you really think about it, it really does sound like a lame idea, it's like making a movie where walls talk, does that sound creative or lazy to you?

From the moment the main guy took a selfie with the monster I instantly knew this was gonna suck

Flatliners Flatliners Product Image

The only thing that was scary about this movie was taking my money out of my wallet to see it.

The Divergent Series: Allegiant The Divergent Series: Allegiant Product Image

Ha this author just read Collins' masterpiece for political ambiguity and copied and pasted part of it into a massive pile or manure you can't just copy other authors work and then try to split up the finale for more cash

This was terrible. This movie was definitely 1/5 garbage. The acting was boring and unrealistic, the plot moved along at a much slower pace. You don't care about any of the characters at all. Again, the amount of CGI in this movie gouges out my eyeballs. Insurgent was much better.

Ascendants? Or DEscendants 2!

Lionsgate is evil

Pitch Perfect 3 Pitch Perfect 3 Product Image

I hate these kinds of chick-lit flicks! Even though Girls Trip did well at the box office, that's not stopping me from hating these kinds of films, Unfunny Night did terrible at the box office and was panned by critics, but I can see why. These films aren't executed very well and are sometimes very painful to watch, you need good directors to direct these kinds of movies. So this film might flop as bad as all those other bad chick-lit flicks that came out this year. I don't doubt it at all.

Unpopular Opinion: I'm a teen girl who HATES chick-lit films! All they do is whine about slapping men and getting periods then call each other female dogs. BORING! Anyone agree? Also Pitch Perfect is boring and garbage. They wreck good songs.

The first Pitch Perfect was tolerable. The 2nd Pitch Perfect was annoying. Now, a series so egotistic about itself has to come out with a third piece of trash that caters to basic college aged white girls trying to find themselves.

I am a girl and I HATE THIS MOVIE WITH A BURNING PASSION. It is unfunny, sexist, stupid, awful, dumb, crappy, boring and cringeworthy in my opinion.. I respect your opinion if you like this movie. - Swampert02

Smurfs: The Lost Village Smurfs: The Lost Village Product Image

It was just decent but the sex scene between Smurfette and Elmo was just unnecessary.

This movie was actually pretty good

I thought it was good

This was a good movie

The Lego Ninjago Movie The Lego Ninjago Movie Product Image

Unfortunately I’m going to be expressing some disappointment and sadness in my next review, because this movie was absolutely dreadful to sit through. An obnoxious, detestable, inaccurate, and greedy piece of soulless dreck that makes its intentions to sell LEGO sets blatantly obvious throughout. Hell, in the END CREDITS they literally show you what looks like pages of LEGO instruction booklets for the mechs that the Ninja use in the movie! The consumerism in these animated movies isn’t even trying to be subtle anymore. First The Emoji Movie, and now this. 3/10

I rather see a smash bros movie than ANOTHER Lego MOVIE about a show that no one watches, cares or likes about anymore

Should be number one.This make Emoji Movie look like Popeye. I hope this film get banned from earth. AND BURN ALL OF FILM REEL OF THIS! AND THE SETS AND MINIFIRGUE TOO!

I want to see it, since I loved the Lego movie and the Lego batman movie, but I hear it's not as good

Despicable Me 3 Despicable Me 3 Product Image

The Despicable Me franchise is running out of ideas, this movie was sure to prove that. There was also some sort of scenario going on as well which didn't play with the characters in the best possible way. Some of them lost their edge as well, they are still likeable though. Although to be fair, this movie was okay, nowhere near the level of the first 2 though I've gotta say.

This movie sucks, all the characters suck or a minor character sometimes both, the plot is bad, and everything else in this movie is bad. Up until this point I loved minion movies so I bet you could tell how disappointed I was about this movie. The Emoji Movie is WAY better then this stupid piece of junk, so this movie should be number 1.

It was okay, but it was kids movie with some redeeming factors. I mean there was a few unpredictable moments, it's beautifully animated and Steve Carrell is great as always! In the first 2 movies, Gru had to face problems and all sorts of things. This movie instead of it having some emotion and depth, it's a cartoon with little to nothing of that!

How is this movie not higher on the list? First of all, we are introduced to a character who is even more annoying than the minions, and secondly this doesn't feel like a Despicable Me movie. The first 2 were really good but this was just utter trash. Hope they won't make a Despicable Me 4.

Power Rangers

This looks cool. Hope it doesn't disappoint

Worst movie ever power rangers sucked already now they suck more

Best Reboot Ever

This makes all the worst versions look like citizen Kane.

Beauty and the Beast Beauty and the Beast Product Image

Before you think about voting for this movie, look at all the movies that are below this one; The Nut Job 2, Transformers 5, The Boss Baby, Smurfs: The Lost Village, Rings, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, Tom and Jerry: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Wish Upon...wait a minute! Wish Upon isn't even on this list yet! But the remake of Beauty and the Beast is...

Sorry, but I do not think this movie should be on this list. Sure, Emma Watson is not the best actress in the world by a longshot, and she probably wasn't the best choice for Belle. But there is a lot I really liked about the remake, and there are a few things I think the remake did better than the original. Is it better than the original overall? Absolutely not. But is it a bad movie? Absolutely not.

Disney actually are without new ideas. Now they bought (and ruining) Marvel (Infinity War will be like Iron Man 3, looks "serious" in the trailers but in teathers will be a garbage with children jokes), Lucasfilms (a wrong idea of feminism), problably 20th Century Fox, because they are running out of ideas. And now, Disney is restarting its classic movies in live action and with new politically corrects, a wrong ideas of feminism, and "liberal" plots and characters, only for merchandising.

You can't PC-ify that which was already perfect to begin with and hope that it'll gain a new audience. This movie didn't know if it wanted to be like the fairy tale, or the animated version, and the end result failed at making a decent version of either of them. Only watch this movie if you want to gain a better appreciation for the animated classic. If you already love the original, like I do, stay as far away as possible.

I get it. People don't like this movie. But that doesn't man it's a terrible movie. Can we at least get it out of the top 10, possibly the top 20? I mean, Wish Upon and Unforgettable are ranked lower than this. No matter how much you dislike this remake, it is NOT worse than the trash listed below it right now.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword King Arthur: Legend of the Sword Product Image

Yeah it sucked alright! It was a generic action flick with characters you could care less about, crappy action sequences that were ripped out of a video game, unoriginal plot, And David's stiff performance! I thought it was going to be an epic journey! But it turned out to be a generic comedic Video game like movie! Even the jokes weren't funny and I wanted this movie to be over after a few minutes in! So whatever you do! Don't waste your time on this crappy flick! It was something we thought was going to be epic! But became a disaster! What did the people at Warner Bros even smoke?

This is going to be in the top ten eventually. Trust me on this one.

Can only say it terrible to watch

Horrible film!

Mother! Mother! Product Image

This movie is just disgusting. It's about a girl gets rid of people who wrecked her house to Satanic rituals give me chills. And the baby died? Nope. The music credits? Extra nope!

Didn't watch the movie - shiftaltkey

Awful

Boring

Surf's Up 2: Wavemania Surf's Up 2: Wavemania Product Image

Hey look! The sequel no one asked for!

Looks weird. I saw the trailer and the wedding between the penguin and Barney the Dionsaur makes me wanna vomit.

To make matters worse, it's been said that Cartoon Network is going to air this movie several times next week this month in June as of the time I write this comment. You know, it's times like these that I'm glad I don't have cable anymore so I don't have to put up with cheap cash grabs like this one.

Original Surf's Up was good. Cast changes and the fact that WWE was shoved into this made a terrible sequel.
