You know what’s better than the live-action Jem movie? Well, just about anything. But also this fantastic cosplay from Skirts and Swords (the team behind the equally excellent Sailor Moon Biker Gang cosplay), where the ladies of the X-Men have merged with the stars of Jem to form a singularly outrageous band.
The original Jem cartoon from the 80s is beloved for a reason—and it offers a lot of great material for a modern musical superhero movie. So the movie version could have been great. Instead, the Jem movie left all the best parts of the cartoon on the table.
The Hasbro Cinematic Universe? There have been dumber ideas in Hollywood. GI Joe: Retaliation (a.k.a. the good one) and Jem director Jon M. Chu wants to make it happen with one big crossover flick, according to a recent interview.
For good or ill, the fact there’s a Jem and the Holograms movie is kind of thanks to Justin Bieber.
In the latest promo for the Jem and the Holograms movie, Universal has released what amounts to a music video for the film’s original song “Youngblood.” And it’s... okay.
The second trailer for the live-action Jem movie is here with new disheartening info. It appears that the holographic AI named Synergy, who gives Jem her rockin’ powers in the cartoon, will be in the movie... but as some tiny robot that plays home movies? Also: Still no Misfits.
One of the saddest things about the live-action Jem & the Holograms movie is that Jem’s rival band, the Misfits, are nowhere to be found. That’s incredibly dumb—because the Misfits are an integral part of why the 80s cartoon was so amazing. And, if you believe the opening theme, their songs are actually better.
Age of Ultron will reveal the Avengers' darkest fears. Is Suicide Squad really like The Dark Knight? A closer look at some Jurassic World dinosaurs! The movie of Millar's Starlight is still happening. Plus, set pictures from Doctor Who, a cleaner look at Jem, and hints for what's to come on The Walking Dead.…
This is the first real look at the rebooted, updated and live-action Jem and the Holograms movie. But does it meet our very high "glamour and glitter, fashion and fame" standards? Eehhhhh...
I'm so glad the latest videos in Honda's bizarre, toy-themed adverts are for good causes, because otherwise... well, these would be just as nightmarishly terrible, but there would be nothing hopeful to feel about after watching them!
When IDW's new Jem and the Holograms comic arrives in March, the princesses of pop-rock will be sporting a brand new style, courtesy of artist Ross Campbell. Check out the cover for the first issue!
I'm not exactly sure what Honda is thinking by creating a whole commercial series where they let classic toys like Skeletor, Strawberry Shortcake, Stretch Armstong, and the Fisher-Price Little People shill their cars. But I guess I'm at least as likely to buy a car from He-Man's nemesis as I am an regular car salesman.
If anyone can save this High School Musical-looking Jem movie, it's actual rock star Juliette Lewis. Thank goodness she's joined the cast. This movie needs some actual badassery in it. Also, 80s icon Molly Ringwald.
We've waited 29 years for a live action Jem movie. But now every piece of news we hear about this project makes us want to rip out our pink hair and weep. The new Jem movie announced last month is now filming in three weeks! How is this possible? What is going on? Where are the women?
Looks like the "movies based on '80s toylines" genre is no longer just a boys club. Former doll and cartoon franchise Jem and the Holograms will rock their own live-action movie, to be directed by G.I. Joe 2's Jon M. Chu.
The good news: Hasbro has revealed a number of the toys, dolls, figures and collectibles they'll be selling at the 2013 San Diego Comic Con via USA Today and they are unbelievably awesome. The bad news? You have about as much chance of purchasing these as of getting into Hall H to see a Joss Whedon panel (spend 12…
The Oxford definition of the word "outrageous" lists two meanings: "shockingly bad or excessive" and "wildly exaggerated or improbable." I'd say both of those apply to the Jem and the Holograms episode "Journey to Shangri-La," in which Jem nearly kills both the Holograms and the Misfits — all for the sake of a magic…
There was a phrase used in the 1980s for the intangible barrier that prevented women (and minorities) from reaching the upper echelons of corporate America: "the glass ceiling." But while real women were unfortunately battling for the positions of power they deserved, cartoon women were breaking the glass ceiling and…
