Oh, Jem. What did they do to you?

It looks like Michael Bay and M. Night Shyamalan formed an unholy union to create a covenant with the dark one. This movie is going to be terrible. Any resemblance to Jem is purely coincidental.

Things I take issue with:
1. No Misfits---the main antagonists of the series. That's like telling the Decepticons to fuck on out of the Transformer movies.

2. Everyone knows who Jem is. Part of the fun was the struggle to keep her identity a secret from the Misfits and Eric Raymond. Eliminating them takes a big portion of the conflict out of the movie. I'm especially annoyed Rio knows. That was one of Jerrica's awesome flaws. Lying to her boyfriend and letting him pursue a romantic relationship both her identities. I always wanted to shake her but it made her character more interesting.

3. Jerrica's personality. In the cartoon, Jerrica ran the show. She was an incredibly active character. She didn't just sing, she managed the group, took care of orphans, fixed the plumbing. You name it, Jerrica did it. She didn't sit around and wait for someone else to make decisions for her. She went out like a true protagonist and got shit done. From the trailer alone, it looks like Jerrica's major decisions are made by other people---her sister posts her music on youtube, the company decides she'll be Jem. That is boring. Active characters are infinitely more fun to watch than someone who just sits back and lets the world shape her how it wants her to be.

So yeah. I know it's just a trailer for a live action movie for a shitty cartoon from the 80s. But darn it, I wanted it to be good or at least pleasantly hilarious.
