Jem and the Holograms (2015) - Nostalgia Critic

  • Published on Jun 15, 2016
  • It's truly, truly, truly pathetic. One of the worst adaptations ever has to be seen to be believed. How does the Jem and the Holograms movie compare the 80s cartoon?

    Wait, no. Pokémon Indigo League did NOT exist solely to sell toys.

    It existed because of the theme song.

    Honestly I love "The Phantom Menace". I would be proud if I were in a video talking about the movie. I'm not the only one who loves the prequel movies as much as the originals and Sequel. I really don't understand the hate the prequels get.

    • Bill Jacobs
      Bill Jacobs 9 days ago

      Ugh, fine, I'll take that gauntlet and...admit that I don't hate the prequels either. Especially Episode 1. I think the criticism stems from two directions; one, on a technical level, it does have flaws with pacing and fluff. From the other direction, it does have stuff that is just annoying, and by "stuff" I mean "Jar Jar Binks". So it has things to bother both snobs and the casual movie goer. That said, it had some good action, some good acting (Liam Neeson is pretty awesome in most things), the effects were good, and honestly, I think there just might be a little bit of impatience with people getting so upset at the scenes of talking. I get bored if people are talking about nothing at all, or dragging out conversations, but movies were people discuss plans and big issues, that's fine--those are interesting conversations. If you don't like more than 2 minutes of talking, you might have ADD.

    but didn't Jem's dad owned Starlight? what happened to the foster children? did their home burned down? didn't Jem use the earrings to transform? wasn't Synergy inside a holographic abandoned movie theater? why didn't they use some songs from the original Jem? I'M SO CONFUSED!

    How can you do that?

BLOODY HELL! And Rio... what happened to the poser, ken-like man who betrayed Jerrica without shame?? He was disturbing, but not as this movie!

    Molly Ring-“that’s it, that’s is. Osama, hit a C note”

    “HIT A C NOTE”
    *Everyone hits a C note*

    You know, I'm betting every fan of the original show of Jem, including myself, understand why fans of Teen Titans hate TTG, like how I do. Hell, some of the worst episodes of TTG actually go out of their way to insult fans of the original show and its critics, similar to how this film almost mocks fans of the source material.

    Just Image if BB-8 didn’t have the piece of the map to luke Skywalker and the only piece he did have was synergy’s map. The Resistance would be completely screwed and The Last Jedi would never come to light. A better alternative if I do say so myself.

    A friend of mine said that when he was in High School, a bunch of people came to his school for a video. They came to his class and said, "When we hold up the drink you like, please Cheer as loud as you can. When we hold up the drink you hate, Boo as loudly as you can."
    He said he saw the video some time later on TV. It turns out, it was a media company running a political ad for a Rhode Island Democrat. They edited to look like they were holding up a picture of the Democrat where they'd "cheer excitedly" and when they held up the photo of the Republican, they "boo'd loudly."
    People always do crooked ass stuff in order to push their agenda's. In this case, it was to upsell Jem.

    *Critic*: This is like asking people to make videos saying why they love Star Wars and the suddenly editing it to look like you're talking about The Phantom Menace"
    I disagree with that. The Phantom Menace for all its faults is still an enjoyable movie. Not even The Last Jedi would be an appropriate comparison. This is like editing the videos to look like you're talking about The Holiday Special.

    down with this bullshit movie, everybody needs to watch jiz and the mammograms on yt, its a way better version of the 80s original where Jem becomes a drag queen who runs a brothel and gives abortions. I honestly consider that a better sequel than this bullshit. I have no idea why they did not have a focus group with actual jem fans for this movie tho, it would've been ripped apart, they truly just shat out a movie for the sake of doing a live action money grabber. I'm glad it flopped, it was deserving.

    I actually know this series by a french youtuber called "Mister Grenier" I believe which Nostalgia Critic already did a collaboration before, and so, I know where the "Jem and the holograms" fan's rage comes from :
    -it doesn't respect the story
    -it doesn't respect the characters
    -it doesn't even respect the style of the original ("charm" and music)
    It's like they only took the name and that's all...

    Et à tous les français, ça ne me dérange pas du tout si les Misfits tuent Jem et ses amies cette fois.
