His name sounds like a pornstar.
Pasto - 4/30/2014, 8:37 AM
And lets not all forget that this film is actually happening. Aka, a crime against humanity.
Pasto - 4/30/2014, 8:39 AM
Only way I would watch this film is if they made it like Scott Pilgrim and gave me an epileptic seizure.
ALegendaryPanda - 4/30/2014, 8:40 AM

You ever have one of those days where the lyrics for a song you haven't listened to for, like.. a month goes through your head out of nowhere and you decide to make it your mission that everybody within a 2 mile radius has that shit burned into their memory for the rest of the day?

I hope these poor bastards appreciated my rendition of "Sympathy For The Devil".
MrMartinMarvel - 4/30/2014, 9:24 AM
Ugh...
BigBossKaz - 4/30/2014, 9:24 AM
Honestly who cares
JoMadrox - 4/30/2014, 9:25 AM
So bad it's good.
RetroFit - 4/30/2014, 9:27 AM
I predict this movie makes about $10 million in theatres before being sent to the dollar bin at Wal-Mart to be forgotten for the rest of time. The only real comparison is 'Josie and the Pussycats', which made $14m on a budget of $39m.
RetroFit - 4/30/2014, 9:30 AM
Great. Speaking of having a song stuck in your head, I've got the Jem theme mixed up with Mr. Roboto in my head right now. "We are the Misfits, we are the Misfits...I am a mo-dern man...We are the Misfits, we are the Misfits...with parts made in Japan...we are the Misfits, we are the Misfits..."

AUUGGGHHHH!!!!!!!
JoeMomma29 - 4/30/2014, 9:30 AM
@ RetroFit

I hate to disagree with you but this could be a big hit with little girls in general........heck look at what happened with that Disney Frozen movie. That damn song is even being played all over the place.
JoeMomma29 - 4/30/2014, 9:32 AM
@ RetroFit

You can thank me later!

JoeMomma29 - 4/30/2014, 9:36 AM
@ Retro

OH MY there seems to be a following for Jem.........

MajorTom - 4/30/2014, 9:38 AM
I simply don't understand how you can drop Masters of the Univers for Jem. I think I would rather get hit in the nuts with a tac hammer twice!
jrp6048 - 4/30/2014, 10:19 AM
Well between this guy and Gusto, my hard on for this movie is gone
ThePowerCosmic - 4/30/2014, 10:55 AM
Joemomma

I'm not, the budget on this would be much smaller than a ThunderCats or He-man film.

But in principle....yes I agree. We need a thundercats film ASAP!
GA15 - 4/30/2014, 11:35 AM
i grewup watching jem and hologram i even had the dolls. but i don't want see a movie about them. i also grow watching thundercats and he-man and she-ra i would like see them do a film about them first.
GA15 - 4/30/2014, 11:37 AM
grew up
LEEE777 - 4/30/2014, 11:43 AM
JEM would make a good porno :p


Damn, when we gonna see the above ^

Plus GI JOE VS TRANSFORMERS ;)
KIDDSOUL - 4/30/2014, 12:29 PM
The old school Filmation generation. Those were the good old days.
HorrorPilot - 4/30/2014, 12:55 PM
Looked like some cheap, knock-off Bakshi animation.
Fray - 4/30/2014, 1:27 PM
I can't believe this film is really happening. Hollyweird is indeed out of ideas.
JatevinM - 4/30/2014, 1:35 PM
JoeMomma29@ Maybe just maybe filmmakers finally realized that not every film has to aimed at little boys and that.....little girls exist too I know its a far fetched idea to not only make movies for boys.

Fray@ Yes much weirder than giant talking car robots, four giant talking bipedal ninja turtles, a giant green rage monster, a norse god, and a man who was frozen for about 70 years :)
JatevinM - 4/30/2014, 1:36 PM
The exact same people calling this a weird idea are the same people upset that we dont have a Thundercats movie yet.....let that logic sink in.
TheSavorings - 4/30/2014, 4:24 PM
Rio from Jem = my first heterosexual man crush back in the day. Not like I was in love with him or anything, I could just totally why Jessica and the other chicks were sprung on him. For the record Hugh Jackman has been my man crush for the last few years.

Er, ok, I'm going now...
case - 4/30/2014, 7:39 PM
Perfect. I'm hanging to see this movie. Bet it rocks.
BlindJustice - 4/30/2014, 9:34 PM
@TheSavorings - I guess that's better than Gusto being your Man-crush.
mgeoff88 - 5/1/2014, 12:01 AM
Rio Pacheco? Really???
loki668 - 5/1/2014, 2:24 AM
Yep. All of the "girls" who were big fans of this are now borderline "menopausal" right? Right?.....................Why did it get so quiet in here? Ah, shit........there's a woman standing behind me, isn't there..........Well, it's times like this where I'm glad that I know what to do!

*runs like hell*
