Gem and Hollygrams

This was considered one of the worst movies of 2015, so of course I had to check it out!

A band gets started, and the lead does her own song, and of course she gets internet famous, and so she and the band signs up to the best record company ever. They are insanely popular for one song in a small place, then the company leader wants the leader to go solo. Thus the band breaks up, but then gets back together and goes on to happy ever after.

Oh, and the main is named Jem and there is a robot map quest to follow, which leads to holograms. But that is completely incidental to the movie. Which, as you might guess, not really makes this a JemGrams movie. In fact, it's not even a good band movie (not that I've seen many, but this feels really generic).

I watched the cartoon when I was growing up, because it was on TV, and it was watchable. Fun, bright colours, and of course the Misfits were the best... but this? It's not outrageous, it doesn't have the technology fun, and... just isn't 80s.

Yes, this movie isn't good. Worst movie? I'm not saying it's that bad, but it's definitely not good.
