With the success and popularity of comic books and old(er) pop culture memories getting the movie treatment, we wonder what obscure ’80s characters would more people be interested in seeing as a movie?


What '80s property would you most like to see turned into a major motion picture?

    A Jem movie would be truly outrageous. Truly, truly, truly outrageous.

      That this even a question is truly outrageous.

      And I will still be rooting for the Misfits to put that corporate fat-cat in her place!

    To be honest I don’t remember either of these, so I picked purely based on the picture. And since I’m a boy, Atari Force looked better.

    I remember both and being a guy i liked Gem. Lets face it these were 80’s women. Bright colors and sexy, win win.

    I honestly think Jem could do well as a movie, if given the right production team and just the right people are cast.

    They just need to make sure Kimber is the cutest one.

    i would like to see a Jem movie more to see the Misfits rather than the Holograms.
    Particularly the sassy Jetta with her British accent and her cool black-lacquered tenor sax.

    Never even heard of Atari Force and all I know about Gem comes from Robot Chicken, so Atari Force :)

    Well, seeing as Jem and the Doctor seem to get along so swimmingly and I am a great fan of Doctor Who I went with Jem.
