Truly Outragous!
Now, most of you out there know i have a slight preoccupation with anything to do with the 80's and retro culture... so you can imagine my reaction when it came accross my desk that HASBRO have registered the rights to start pre-production of a JEM movie...

fearing this was bit of fake news i started digging in to see what i could actually dig up myself... after a few e-mails to the corporations involved to which i recieved no response (great shock there...) i finally managed to track down someone in the know at the registry site... and i recieved this confirmation...


Hasbro has officially registered JemMovie. com and JemAndTheHologramsMovie. com

The website domains were registered  and will remained registered until 2011. This along with the recent trademark updates to the Jem and Jem and the Holograms brands/trademarks/etc for live action use as well as animated, action figure and graphic print medium.

While this movie shows great promise to bring back the 80's culture for everyone to enjoy I'm scared this will be horrible. And probably for the reasons that some of you think it could be good. The Disney type pop princesses as stars... And it would have to be updated, so I'll hate all the music, the fashions, etc.... what I love in Jem is the wild outfits and looks, and the 80's pop/rock.... The Misfits were great, and I can see them becoming either simply catty girls, or they'll make them really hard rock/punk to a degree tha implies "rock/metal is bad and dumb", though I wouldn't care if they used the Misfits to make fun of lame Avril Lavigne style fake-punk.

but as with all movies i guess we'll just have to wait and see, but with this one i truly hope the movie takes off as this could be a truly outragous start to 2009's movie year!

Actually I thought about it but realized that is was a comic book that was made into a late 80s cartoon that was made into a movie in the 90s that was made into an animated movie in the NM - so I assumed it wouldn't really count.
