You can fit about six episodes of Power Rangers into that running time...and probably get more entertainment value!

Re: Sabanís Power Rangers (2017, D: Dean Israelite)

Well, let the 90s reboots begin. I think I'm getting JDF's autograph this year at Comic-Con. This seems decades late and I, as a fan of the show because of its old mythology and the occasional nods to it newer series (I've heard recent Judd Lynn seasons have been good; what happened to Jackie Marchand?), so a reboot doesn't excite me that much, but the 90s nostalgia may get people into seats. Hey, open mind. Could be fun. This was the embodiment of my childhood. Which makes me depressed, the more I lament my lost youth.

I don't know that I could bring myself to watch this in the theater, but I honestly don't hate what I've seen in the last two trailers.

No way could I be seen in public going to this but I have to admit, that trailer doesn't look bad. I would definitely rent this.

When the first Digimon movie opened in theaters in 2000, I was the only adult in the theater at my screening. In fact, I was the only PERSON in the theater!

Looks like I was right on the money or Dean Isrealite reads dvdtalk.

5/10 Only slightly less hokey than the tv show.

Judging by the reviews I think they will stick with the 1 movie arc.

For me Power Rangers are like Ninja Turtles... I just don't get the appeal. Be interesting to see if this flops at the weekend.

Re: Saban’s Power Rangers (2017, D: Dean Israelite)

I went to see this last night. I was a HUGE Rangers fan as a kid. It's been so long since I watched the original series, though. I did check out a few episodes on Netflix.

The first hour of the movie I really liked. The prologue was interesting. I thought where they placed the title card was really strange and lacked impact. The effects, up to a certain point, looked good.

I thought all of the actors were generally really good in their roles. The standout being "Me and Earl and the Dying Girl's" RJ Cyler as Billy. I really liked the new Pink Ranger And Elizabeth Banks is still hot as hell even when she looks a mess as Rita.

The movie kind of fell apart for me once they actually morphed and became the Rangers. I didn't think much of the CGI in the movie from here on. The Zords all looked so muddled. The Ranger suits weren't AS bad as I thought they'd be. And... Krispy Kreme... what the fuck?

One of the biggest issues I had was it didn't necessarily capture the spirit of the show. A big part of that comes down to martial arts and athleticism NOT being engraved into the characters. The original characters were involved in the community center and martial arts program and it really brought the "do good" nature of the characters. There isn't much of that here as they are all flawed. I feel like they could've kept the flaws but still incorporated some more of this in.

Stick around for a mid-credits tease.

Saban's Power Rangers dug up $3.6 million Thursday night as Lionsgate's new take on the five teens with morphin' powers began its rollout in theaters. Meanwhile, Sony's space horror-thriller Life earned $800,000 in previews, and Warner Bros.' CHIPs also opens wide this weekend.

Power Rangers is directed by Dean Israelite and follows five teens (Dacre Montgomery, Naomi Scott, RJ Cyler, Ludi Lin, Becky G) in a small town who discover artifacts that allow them to morph into crime-fighting heroes called The Power Rangers. They are tasked with learning to use their new skills in order to save their town from destruction by a power-hungry villain (Elizabeth Banks). Bryan Cranston also stars in the film based on the hit TV series that first hit the small screen in the '90s.

The PG-13-rated film is projected to earn $30 million to $40 million in its domestic debut.

I hope this does well so we can get a sequel. Cause I'm guessing the next villain will be Lord Zedd? Even rewatching the second season Zedd kicked so much ass.
