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?
