It’s Morphin’ Time!

Today, the second trailer was revealed for “Saban’s Power Rangers” today and the internet is shook. The trailer itself featured more than the last, mainly so it can hype up this creakingly awesome movie.

The movie continues to show off the darker tone, which I applaud, and its also gives some corny jokes in there to help “lighten the mood” and continue on with some fighting, some megaword action, the big robots, as well as a look that the command center.

The movie looks like the baby of “The Breakfast Club” and “21 Jump Street” now with some aliens. Rita looks like a total and complete badass. She looks like she’s out to literally kill everyone and I like it. The putties are the rock monster things and they just pop out of the ground and they look way better than the original. The only thing that looks weird is Goldar and that’s only because he looks like Dorothy came and dumped water on him and he’s melting.

Gordon and Alpha look okay. It’s weird that he’s in the wall but I’m going to judge it further once I see the movie. It’s also hard to take Alpha seriously because of the way he looks. I understand that he’s not a robot but it’s the eyes. They look too ridiculously.

The swearing and drug references are a refreshing change. Overall, I’m literally shook for his trailer and cannot wait until the movie comes out in theater March 24, 2017.

Here’s the trailer for you to be shook as well:

Go Go Power Rangers trailer!

power-rangers-sm

Somebody call Rita Repulsa because we have our first look at the new Power Ranger trailer was released last week and boy is it lit. The trailer is pretty much everything we have ever wanted in the movie. It’s not as dark as the fanmade film feature James Van Der Beek but it’s amazing. I’ve been getting the vibe that it’s what the breakfast club would have been like if they happen to find aliens to give them powers.

Like these powers are legit powers, there’s a scene where Jason breaks off a part of a sink. Yeah…they are like legit superhero now and just teenagers that happen to fight in spandex   with their martial arts move. Then we have Rita being a creeping and telling Trini, played by Becky g, and telling her that she’s killed Rangers before. Damn girl, this is so far intense af. Then in between there’s Kimberly and Jason making out as well as them getting their suits in the movie’s version of the Command Centre.

This movie looks like it will be the movie we always wanted for the Power Rangers.

Here’s the trailer for your eyes to see.

I’m so pump for this movie and hopefully this movie won’t suck because it’s trailer is lit.

The Power Rangers get gritty

1

reboot

Grab your communicators and morphers because everyone favorite 90’s show just got a gritty fan made reboot, the one everyone has wanted, and call that one pirate villain because it’s rated RRRRRR…..get it?

The movie is, called Power/Rangers features James Van Der Beek as a badass Power Ranger that turned against his team to join the enemy, The Machine Empire, and trying to hunt down (and probably kill) everyone’s favorite ranger Tommy Oliver as he holds the Topanga Lawrence to Tommy’s Cory Matthews (90’s inception), Kimberly Hart. As he is trying to scare her, there is flashback that will even make Alpha 5 go “Ai-yi-yi-yi-yi!” because it features a lot of blood, death, gun shooting, and boobs.

Power/Rangers has been the center of controversy because “the creator” Haim Saban doesn’t approve…as well as the badass MMA fighting tattooed green ranger Tommy Oliver aka Jason David Frank. Jason said that via Facebook:

I know there’s a lot of fans out there that love it and all that stuff, but I’m just a PG-13 guy. The cuss words, the drugs, all this other stuff — it doesn’t fly with me. … The problem is that [Power Rangers is] still connected with adults and kids. You can’t take a brand like this and reboot it so dark and gritty.

The video receive over 10 millions view on YouTube and Vimeo before being pulled for copyright.

Now I watched the video and I highly enjoyed the fan film. It was amazing because they did went very in-depth on everything. It wasn’t what I was expecting when I heard about it. I thought it would just someone taking the gist of the franchise and making it new but they did it justice. I don’t think it was right to have pulled. The creator, Joseph Kahn, even said that he made it for free. He said:

“Every image in Power/Rangers is original footage. Nothing was pre-existing. There is no copyrighted footage in the short. I am not making any money on it and I refuse to accept any from anyone. It was not even Kickstarted, I paid for it myself. This was made to be given away for free. It is just as if I drew a pic of Power Rangers on a napkin and I gave it to my friend. Is it illegal to give pic I drew of a character on a napkin to someone for free? No. I just wanted to make a Power Rangers good for once. It’s kind of a silly franchise. It was an experiment in tone; it was a challenge. I took the silliest property I could think of and tried to see if I could make it serious enough.”

I think Saban should have kept it up because while he is planning the real Power Rangers movie to be released in 2016, it could have been used to help promote it. But instead, if the official reboot sucks, then it will be compared to the fan film.It should also be noted that the majority of the former rangers actually liked and enjoyed the movie. Below is the video in its entirety (hopefully, it’s still up when you read this). They also support it to be seen. Be warned, it’s NSFW. Viewer Discretion is Advised…I bet you never thought you would hear that about Power Rangers!:
