For those of us that grew up during the 80s, it was a magical time filled with mirth, glee, and bats@#t insane cartoons. One of the many offerings was a bit of animated fare entitled, Jem. A wistful cartoon tale about a young girl moonlighting as a rock star with the aid of a, I kid you not, a holograph projecting AI, known as Synergy. The bulk of the series revolved around Jem not only protecting Synergy from falling into the wrong hands, but fighting off rival bands. How do I know this? My sisters let me…I mean forced me to watch this. Yeah, “forced me”.
And because Hollywood has run out of original ideas, we now have a movie entitled, “Jem and the Holograms”. But where’s Synergy?!
Jem and the Holograms hits theaters October 23, 2015 (USA).
