Like many, I grew up on the original cartoon Jem and the Holograms. I used to love the show so I decided to give the movie a try.
I did not expect the modern twist to the movie and at first, I didn’t really connect with the interpretation of Jem and the other characters. I almost turned it off before I made it through the introduction scenes. I’m glad I didn’t. The movie grows on you as you watch and it has depth.
I also added two of the song to my Spotify song list. I like songs with real writing, an actual message and not just some sexist denigration or hate words on a good beat.
