I am probably one of like, 10 people that spent money watching the live action Jem and the Holograms. I spent $1.60 renting it from Redbox. As far as movies go, I didn’t hate it. I hate that they didn’t just make a whole new story all together instead of using the Jem name. I get that they probably used the name because it’s something recognizable but I feel like that’s probably what killed it. A Jem movie could have been SO GOOD if they did it right. It was just too different for older fans to enjoy.
The sequel they hinted at when they had high hopes looked so much better than this movie. I want to watch Pizzazz Kesha threaten tiny Aubrey Peebles Jem with murder in 20 different ways while singing catchy but terrible songs.
Okay, so a quick recap. Things I liked:
Oh and I really liked the use of people’s YouTube videos in the movie. It was cute. I like watching strangers sing.
Things I disliked:
SYNERGY WAS A DUMB ROBOT AND NOT A FASHIONABLE HOLOGRAM
??? I wasn’t cast as Jem.
It was just too dang different from the original Jem. Too. Dang. Different.
Oh and Jem’s hair wasn’t big enough at all, damn.
