Jem is still is my favorite 80s cartoon, when I heard they were making a movie (Jem and the Holograms), I was like “oh yeah, sweet”. I decided to see the trailer for the movie. After watching the trailer, I turned off my computer and ugly cried in the corner.
How could they take another awesome 80s cartoon, completely disregard everything from the cartoon and make it into an utter catastrophe? Just like almost every 80s cartoon turned movie of today’s date and age, the directors and writers have completely butchered everything.
Where was Synergy? No Eric Raymond? Why is it now Erica Raymond (Juliette Lewis)? No Misfits? I get they don’t want to make everything the same but Synergy was a vital part of Jem, the Misfits were a vital part of Jem, Eric Raymond was a vital part of Jem.
Did they forget that my current generation of 30 something year olds that watched the show when they were kids in the 80s remember details and remember key characters of the show? How could you take out a key factor and pretend it never happened? Maybe IMDb left out certain characters on purpose just to freak me out but I highly doubt it since the movie comes out October 23, 2015.
Maybe I am being too critical but still, they should’ve either made the movie right or not of made at all.
