Anyone remember the old 7Up ads from the 1990's? Like, the musical ones?

"7Up! It's an up thing!"

I always did love 7Up best of all.
How not to be a dark lord: the answer to that is a terribly interesting answer that involves an almost Jedi-like adherence to keeping oneself under control and finding ways to be true to yourself in a way that doesn't encourage the worst parts of you to become dangerously exaggerated and instead feeds your better nature. Also, protip: don't fuck with Alchemy or strike up any deals with ancient Japanese Shinigami gods no matter how tempting the deal or how suavely dressed the Shinigami is.

I still remember Spot the mascot from the 80's and early 90's The red dot wearing the stylish shades. They even made a game for him too.

Are you kidding? I was far younger back in the day and certain things I would do filled me to the brim with Nostalgia, and I would always look forward to those times. Sadly that's not the case anymore. So if I were you, I'd treasure any and all times you feel nostalgic, and hold onto them as best you can. Unlike rose-tinted glasses, nostalgia isn't a bad thing as it comes from a positive source within you. And it's true because you feel good from such a feeling.

Unfortunately, we are approaching that point where the pop culture industry is beginning to realize that the 80's Nostalgia Demographic that they've been pandering too is beginning to age out of the target area... which means us 1990's kids are next on the list. You can start to see it happening already.

I don't relish the idea of my childhood being repackaged and horribly reinterpreted by suits older than me who don't get why we loved this stuff in the first place, which is exactly what happened with the Jem and the Holograms movie for anyone who ever loved the original. Seriously. It's gonna happen to us, fellow 90's kids.

Look forward to that (he said, voice dripping with venomous sarcasm).

Huh! Never knew Jem and the Holograms even had a movie. I only ever watched the series. Guess I was spared some pain of regret then.

You'll love this then. From dee Wikipeedias:

Reception

Box office
The film was released in North America on October 23, 2015, alongside The Last Witch Hunter, Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension, and Rock the Kasbah, along with the wide release of Steve Jobs. It was originally projected to gross $5 million in its opening weekend, but after only grossing $34,000 during its Thursday night previews ($36 per theater average), projections were lowered to $3 million.[31] It ultimately opened fifteenth at the box office with $1.4 million, the worst opening of 2015 and the fourth worst opening ever for a film playing in more than 2,000 theaters.[32][33] On November 10, 2015, just over two weeks after it premiered, Universal removed the film from theaters entirely, after grossing just $2.2 million. Jason Guerrasio of Business Insider described the pull from theaters as "an unheard of move for a movie that was in theaters nationwide."[34]

The film's international roll-out began on October 22, where it debuted to a fourth-place finish in Slovenia. It debuted in 9 screens and had a weekend gross of $2,064. The movie's total is $3,046. In its second weekend the film dropped 37% to finish at 5th place with $1,297. Its third week resulted in a steep 84% decline to $210. It’s three-week total is $6,886.[35]

The film opened in Croatia on October 29, where it debuted in fifth-place with $1,421 from 11 screens. The film dropped over 40% in its second week with $870 from 7 screens, but the third week saw its screen count increase to 13 and it suffered a scant 8% decline to end the weekend with $801. The film’s three-week total was $3,744.

The film opened in Iceland a day later, where it made $1,197 on opening weekend from 6 screens. The film retained its screen count for the next week, seeing a 41% drop to end with $698. The following week saw the film take in $195 from 1 screen, a substantial drop of 72%. Its three week-total was $2,862.

The film opened in Norway on November 6. It placed number four at the box office with $14,764 from 62 screens. Its two-week total was $20,046.

The film opened in Singapore on November 26 where it grossed $9,311 from 8 screens for a 13th-place finish.

Release date for parts of Europe is December, and the UK release will be in February 2016.

As of 30 December 2015, the film grossed $142,526 internationally, bringing the worldwide gross to $2.3 million.[36]

Critical response[edit]
On Rotten Tomatoes, the film has a rating of 19% based on 57 reviews; the average rating is 3.5/10. The site's consensus reads, "Jem and the Holograms ignores its source material's goofy charm in favor of bland by-the-numbers drama."[37] Metacritic gives the film a score of 42 out of 100, based on 15 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews".[38] On CinemaScore, audiences gave the film an average grade of "B+" on an A+ to F scale.[39] Geoff Berkshire of Variety praised Peeples' performance as Jem, noting that she "keeps the film watchable", as well as Lewis as "a nonsensical bitch-on-wheels caricature with offbeat line readings and live-wire energy", and noted that "a generally unremarkable tech package — cinematography, sound, costuming & makeup, etc. — at least provides a modest showcase for costume designer Soyon An, makeup head Mary Klimek and hairstylist Vanessa Price, who come the closest to channeling the vibrant spirit of the Jem cartoons that originally made fans fall in love."[2]

That being said, the fact that it was made for $5 million in today's money, got one commercial, no posters or press, and generally tried not to exist says the studio didn't care whether it succeeded or not and it got made presumably because the producer lost a bet or owed a favor and wanted to keep losses to a minimum.

It's not even about the stuff the cartoon was about: it's the 1990's Josie and the Pussycats film minus the spoof elements and Alan Cummings.

In short: the worst teen film imaginable.
How not to be a dark lord: the answer to that is a terribly interesting answer that involves an almost Jedi-like adherence to keeping oneself under control and finding ways to be true to yourself in a way that doesn't encourage the worst parts of you to become dangerously exaggerated and instead feeds your better nature. Also, protip: don't fuck with Alchemy or strike up any deals with ancient Japanese Shinigami gods no matter how tempting the deal or how suavely dressed the Shinigami is.
