With the Emoji Movie soon coming over to the UK, I wanted to ask you, being nerds and film fans, do you think that movies are as original as they used to be? Now that even Disney, one of the most beloved animation studios in the world, is following this trend, I'm starting to worry. I'm not talking about their films from the villain's pov, I think that's an interesting idea and well worth retelling a story for yet their shot by shot remakes (Cinderella, Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast and now The Lion King) are lazy at best.
When animation studios get so much money off of completely boring, bland and stupid ideas like Minions, The Boss Baby and Sing, I can't help but shake my head in shame.
If you want to add anything to the points I've made here, whether it be argument or agreement, please comment below as I'm interested in your thoughts.
If you want me to expand on why I think any of the films in bold were boring or bland or less than interesting, I'm happy to do so. I've really only started the discussion here so I might add more if you have questions!
