This is how you JEM

Ok I rare to never post about things I don’t like. I think there’s too much negativity on the internet already and I really don’t feel the need or desire to add to that. But I gotta talk about this new trailer for JEM and the Holograms…

WHAT THE?!?!?! This is not JEM. This is basically the 2001 Josie and the Pussycats reboot for 2015. (And yes…I secretly love that movie even though it’s terrible! But it helps if you think of it separately from the 80’s cartoon of the same name.) Which is exactly what will need to be done for any JEM fans watching this new movie. Completely put everything out of your mind that you loved about the cartoon. Like… the Misfits (they could very well be in this film, but the trailer doesn’t mention them at all). JEM being Jerrica’s alter-ego/ superpower/ hologram (it’s a thing), not her stage name! The fact that JEM is not some angsty teenager (the show is certainly not without a little angst, but come on!!) And I’m sure many other things.

Here’s where my head is at with a JEM reboot:

1. Katy Perry

Katy Perry basically is JEM in real life. She has the spirit of Jerrica Benton and she sure can sing.

2. Emma Stone

Emma Stone would make a fun, spicy JEM. Sadly, this fan art will only ever be a fan’s dream.

3. Blake Lively

Blake Lively definitely has the look of Jerrica Benton. Not sure about the singing, but in Hollywood, most impossible things are made possible.

I could cast out the whole movie. The Holograms – Kimber, Shana, Aja and Raya. The Misfits – Pizzazz, Stormer, Roxy and Jetta… But I think the lynch pin is JEM herself. And the new movie has clearly lost it’s mind in making by making it into a teeny bopper movie that may as well be called something else entirely. In fact, if they had named it something else, I might actually go see it. Cause I’m a sucker for movies like that! But why take the name and make it something so completely unrecognizable? I just don’t get it.

This is the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot all over again, except without Megan Fox…thank goodness!! (Don’t even get me started on that!)

Let’s look back at the original, untouchable JEM who was truly outrageous!!!

Also, to any JEM fans out there, let me know what you think. And use the hashtag #ThisishowyouJEM to set the record straight on how this JEM and the Holograms reboot should be!!
