Sony really hit rock bottom with emoji movie and then went nowhere but up after that.
I think everyone's talked about this movie's themes and performances, but what I find most impressive about this film is just how well-edited it is. None of the scenes have arbitrary cuts and the way it cuts to the main character's fantasy and daydreams is seamless. Editing is described as a subtle art, it's supposed to be so good you forget you're watching a bunch of clips stuck together and you're actually immersed in a story completely. This movie absolutely has that, more than maybe any film.
