Right now, I think I hit a burnt out point with Path of Exile. But it might be a good segue for me to do something else like focus on blogging on the side. With that in mind, I wanted to write about random topics that occasionally pop into my mind….like Jem and the Holograms. It might be a strange topic but recently I had been watching some 80’s music videos and saw the new She-Ra Netflix cartoon pop up, making me think about the other powerhouse female cartoon in the 80’s.
Jem the Movie wasn’t an anticipated movie. In fact, there were a lot of hesitation about how it would be cast, knowing how Hollywood tends to bungle reboots and live action versions of much beloved cartoon series. Yet despite all the warnings against the movie, the producers still went ahead and produced a film that did atrociously at the box office to no ones surprise. Yet why did this movie perform so poorly compared to an equally atrocious handling of GI Joe and Transformers?
