Jem and the Holograms review

91JY2Qhdi3L. SL1500  Jem and the Holograms

Aubrey Peeples, Juliette Lewis and Molly Ringwald star in this music-filled, inspirational adventure about a small-town girl who becomes a fearless global superstar.

This movie would have been a run of the mill girl power film that would have been received much better than it was, if only it weren’t named after the science fiction / musical tv series of the same name. The original tv series (for those you that didn’t watch it) revolved around a young woman that owned a controlling interest in a music label that had an AI living in her ear rings that could project music and holographic clothing. Jem and her friends went around the world experiencing musical hi-jinks, usually on opposite sides from their musical nemesis group, “The Misfits”.

Sadly, none of these key points were included in this new re-imagining of a well loved and treasured series. What they slapped the “Jem” name on is a adequately done girl power / family power movie that was done well enough, but didn’t really land ANY of the science fiction elements or the 80’s rock music that true fans were looking for in the franchise. Had they named this “Carla and Fam” I wouldn’t be panning it so thoroughly, it’s just mind boggling that they would look at the original series and put something like this out.
