Poster Review - Jem: The Movie

So, this made the rounds online today.

I'm not as big of a fan for Jem when compared to Hasbro's other big toy show, G.I. Joe, but I've always understood the appeal of the alternative Barbie/pre-Hanna Montana character and I get a kick of its weird New Wave mythos and nostalgia. This poster is striking but already makes me feel like the fan-generated, quickly adapted film will be in the same incorrect vein as the Josie and The Pussycats movie, i.e. taking the music way too serious and being post-grunge instead of, you know, pop and/or rock. Let's wait and see what director Jon M. Chu has for the fans once the trailer comes out.
