Jem and the Holograms Trailer Rant

Do you remember when you had a childhood? Do you remember how great the cartoons were back then? Do you remember telling yourself that you were going to cherish these memories forever; and, there wasn’t anything that could ruin it for you? Well, Universal Pictures said, “fuck you” to you and your childhood. The purpose of Universal Pictures is to make money, while diminishing the 80’s in the process. I don’t even know where to begin. My biggest gripe is the weird fusion they were trying to accomplish with the 80s and now. THIS DOESN’T WORK! You can’t have an IPad in one scene followed by a keyboard guitar in the next scene. You can’t modernize an era in time. That would be like trying to modernize The Ten Commandments, and instead of you using stone tablets, you use a Kindle. It would look idiotic and out of place, just like this movie. They could have easily called this The Untold Story of Hanna Montana, instead defiling the source material.

So, you desecrated the Flintstones, Scooby Doo, G.I Joe 1 and 2. Now, you have desecrated Jem and the Holograms. Seriously Universal, if you kill one more 80s cartoon, you’re just asking for death threats.

  1. I grew up on Jem and thought she was freaking awesome! I actually like this trailer and think it looks like something fun to help reminisce about those days when I played with my Jem and Jerica dolls. To each his own!

  2. So this is what The Movie blog has turned into bashing movies before they see the light of day…..great content guys, with so many movies out that can actually be reviewed by you guys, you waste our time to bash movies that haven’t even seen the light of day. Far Cry from when Doug use to run this shit right. I think im finally done with this shitty site. Sad I had to watch it die.

    1. The Movie Blog has always been “The Official Home of Correct Movie Opinions”. Thanks for sharing yours as it’s kinda the point. If anyone doesn’t agree with something published then we wholeheartedly welcome you to let us know why. Thanks again dude.
