Highly Suspect Reviews: Jem and the Holograms


I said to myself, “Chris, go ahead and ask Harris and Cat if they want to go see and review this movie and if they say no, you’re off the hook, and you don’t have to go see it. This is short notice, they probably can’t do it”. And Harris and Cat said, “Yes”, or I believe Cat’s exact words were, “I am so in it’s not even funny”.

You see, “Jem and the Holograms” was originally a 80’s animated tv series and it had its fanbase. Cat was one of the members of that fanbase. I never would have heard of this thing if not for her. Dammit, Cat. Anyway, this theatrical live action adaptation is, as she says, “In name only”, and we proceed to thrash this thing down to an inch of its life. Come share our pain, won’t you?

      1. Just when you know it, 2 months become 2 mins. The Disney logo, Lucasfilm, Bad Robot, and finally “A long time ago in galaxy far, far away”, Star Wars Episode Vll: The Force Awakens.

  1. I’m surprised you went to see this too, Chris. When I listened to you on the Double Toasted podcast, I figured you were just going to send Cat and Harris alone on this.

      1. No no no, they didn’t when Fant4stic came out, they didn’t when Hitman: Agent 47 came out, but now since this came out and anger them more than Pixels did, all I can say “I didn’t think Pixels was that bad after all.”

        1. That statement you just said reminds me of what Korey Coleman said years ago: I don’t remember which Spill review it was, but he said how it p’ed him how some audience members would say they liked one terrible movie over another and made the comparison of them saying “Its better for me getting a bowel movement instead of getting diarrhea”, to which his response (& my point) was this: https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/a32270a5abd62cc6b8c253cf0a858f61cacba75af482f9b201ca83b75b07fec2.png

          1. At least with Pixels, I can say “well, if the writing was better, it could’ve been a better movie.” and at least the put effort on the visual effects and the film’s concept sounds cool. With Jem and the Holograms, the longer it went on, I realized there’s no saving it. Jem tries to be satire on Internet fame and the music industry today but its done badly and forced that’s it’s grading and facepalmish. Hell, I talk to Black Nerd Comedy about it and even he admit Pixels was a better movie. Here’s proof:
