Jem Is My Name!

It must be 80s nostalgia week because tomorrow is the release of the movie Jem and the Holograms, an updated version of an amazing cartoon from the 80s!

In the cartoon original Jem, Jerrica Benton and her sister Kimber inherit their father's record company, his secret project Synergy, and his charitable foundation, The Starlight Girls, a foster home for young girls.  Synergy was built to be the ultimate audio visual machine and allows Jerrica to transform into Jem, the lead singer of Jem and the Holograms, through the use of (dah da da dum) holograms.  And, one of the best parts, Synergy is controlled through Jerrica's earrings.  Jem and the Holograms have two rival bands and there are constantly situations coming up that threaten to reveal Jerrica/Jem's alter ego.  I'm looking forward to seeing what elements from the original show are kept and how they are updated. If you somehow managed to miss the original cartoon, don't worry, you can watch it on Netflix! And the movie opens in theaters tomorrow!
