Last week, Hasbro announced that a movie based on Jem, the classic 1980s animated series about the glamour, glitter, fashion and fame of a rock star with a secret identity, was in development, helmed by G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon M. Chu. Since this is literally the most important thing that has ever happened, CA Senior Writer Chris Sims cleared his schedule to allow for that most fun pastime for writers on the internet: Rampant speculation about what we would do if we were in charge of bringing Jem and the Holograms to the big screen. Here's what he thinks a truly, truly, truly outrageous (whoa-oh-oh-oh) Jem movie should be.
Thanks to reruns on the Hub and a new DVD box set from Shout Factory, Jem and the Holograms has been experiencing a bit of a renaissance lately -- especially here at ComicsAlliance. I've become hooked on the show, and as someone who recently finished watching every episode of the show, let me tell you: It is completely insane.
It may even be the craziest of the toy tie-in cartoons of the '80s, and considering it's up against the saga of space robots that can turn into trucks and a show about the greatest soldiers in the world fighting against an arms dealer with a Cthulhu monster in his basement, that's saying something. It might be a bold statement, but it's one I intend to prove with a rundown of The 10 Most Truly, Outrageously Insane Episodes of Jem!#
