2017 has seen one more film added to the list of perplexing creations. Based on the cultural phenomenon formed by a humble social app, The Emoji Movie had great potential, if handled with original vision and wit. The plot is set in the city of Textopolis, where Gene, a multi-expressional emoji, heads out to become as normal as other emojis and their single expressions. Unfortunately, the enthusiasm that went into its development, such as casting award-winners James Corden (Into the Woods, 2014) and Ilana Glazer (Broad City, 2014-2018), as well as T.J. Miller (Silicon Valley, 2014-2017) and Anna Faris (I Give It a Year, 2013), was not enough to impress its more demanding audiences. Critics on Rotten Tomatoes pointed out, among other things, a weakness in taste, plot and purpose, apart from it being little more than a promotional tool. Even though the $179,535,817 global box office likely soothed Sony Pictures Animation’s wounded pride, the fact remains that this flop may have damaged any dreams of future productions of this kind.

Some people often question the reasoning behind trying to reinvent a classic, as why should anyone try and fix something that isn’t broken?

If you're one who likes your movies well-categorized, you can file The Snowman under crime/thriller/drama/British/Norwegian/mystery/murder. It’s probably not a genre list you consider every day, but there's no denying it stirs up curiosity. To put it another way, if your normal movie watching habits tend towards slapstick hilarity and crazy adventures in the style of The Hangover, then you better brace yourself for the suspense of this film.
