May 27th: After All These Years (TRAILER)

May 27th is a 7 minute fan-made documentary based on theories, that follows the real reason for Geri Halliwell’s decision on leaving the Spice Girls, as there has never been a solid truth on why she really left and multiple stories from Geri herself that don’t match up. A compilation video from different interviews, chronologically put together that includes stories from Geri’s brother, Mel B’s ex husband, among others.

After all these years, what is the truth? 

I want to know, too.

Truly, Truly Outraged

I’ve never seen a full episode of Jem and the Holograms, but let’s see if I can’t puzzle out why people don’t like the new live action trailer.

My understanding is that original Jem works on superhero rules in the mold of the magical girl. She has magic jewelry that transforms her from Jerrica to Jem. This is combined with western-style super heroics in the Spider-Man tradition: Jerrica is quiet, shy, timid, while Jem is truly outrageous. The Jem identity is a place of power, a place where Jerrica can be confident and never need to question herself. Jem is powerful because Jerrica believes in and relies on Jem.

The conflict, then, arises from Jerrica wishing she could be more like Jem. She doesn’t see Jem as a curse, but instead as a sort of pillar she stands in the shadow of. She wishes she could have the confidence and power of Jem all the time, in her normal life as Jerrica.

In the trailer for the movie, it looks like the Jem identity is assigned, a corporate act Jerrica must perform. Jem is a curse Jerrica is burdened with, a heavy crown she must wear in order to be the queen she secretly wishes to be. To be Jem, she has to sacrifice, she has to betray her family. This is almost a total inversion of the Jem mythology, completely missing the point. Jem should be a secret identity donned willingly and excitedly; instead it is a cage one is locked into.

This sucks! It robs Jerrica and Jem both of agency and self-identity (which is a valid point to make; this is a story of what happens to pop-stars and, by extension, women, when they attempt success). That’s a fine story to tell; but it is not the story of Jem. Jem is the story of Sailor Moon and Spider-Man combined, the story of a woman trying to figure out who she is.

Also why is there One Direction music in the trailer, they already got a movie.
