The original Jem cartoon from the 80s is beloved for a reason—and it offers a lot of great material for a modern musical superhero movie. So the movie version could have been great. Instead, the Jem movie left all the best parts of the cartoon on the table.
Young people, right? They like young-people shit, like YouTube videos, Instagram selfies and crazy hair. If you hate young people but want to pander to them for some reason—like, if you have loathsome, foul-smelling stepchildren—you can always take them to see Jem and the Holograms.

It takes a lot of work to make an animated movie and CineFix has come up with a list of what they think the top 10 most beautiful animated movies are.
I really loved Garfield Minus Garfield, which is exactly as it sounds: Garfield with its titular character stripped out. What happens when you replace Garfield with Saga’s Lying Cat? Absolute brilliance.
What happens when you take one of the world’s best cartoon strips and remix it with some random process math? Wonderful gibberish is what.
You can still step outside your door right now and have your pocket picked (or the modern version, having your iPhone snatched right out of your hand while you’re talking on it). But as these 19th century-early 20th century illustrations suggest, pickpockets and muggers used to be the pressing concern of the day.
In an attempt to make its theme parks even more magical, Disney’s Research division is working to develop bi-pedal robots and animatronic characters that walk and move like the lively cartoon characters in its animated films and TV shows.
Digital animations are great! But so are more traditional drawings!

In following Pinky and the Brain's hilariously cursed cartoon quest to take over the world, we kids get to see a story about the classic odd couple and the funny hijinks they run into. What we don't see is the truth that adults willfully ignore: that lab rats live a miserable life and would totally want to rule the…
Last week we gazed into the abyss, and the cold, dead eyes of the new International Rescue team from Thunderbirds gazed back. As movies and TV constantly seek to strip-mine your nostalgia for profit, redesigns like this are common. And sometimes, they go very wrong. Here are 11 awful makeovers of our childhood…
At 11:28 a.m. Wednesday local time, the French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo tweeted a cartoon of ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi. "Best wishes and good health," the caption read.

Though parodying Frozen doesn't exactly pack the same punch as it would have, I don't know, months and months ago, it's still makes me giggle to see Homer as a snowman. The other bits of 'The Couch Gag Before Christmas' is basically the same run as last year's. But who wouldn't want a candy cane bong?
If you ever wondered what the characters of South Park looked like in real life in the minds of Trey Parker and Matt Stone, wonder no more.
