Wait there are people EXCITED about a Power Rangers movie? After the last few awful seasons put out by Saban? I'm entirely not hyped mostly because I have no faith it'll come out well. Hopefully I'm wrong, but I just don't see them putting in the time, money, or effort. Maybe partnering with an actual movie studio will get the Saban productions to bother to work and hire actors who can act, but Iunno.
I loved Power Rangers as a kid, even realizing how cheap and campy it was. But I'm not excited because with current Hollywood fucking up characters like Superman, Power Rangers movie being crap is a foregone conclusion.
Not gonna lie, I think Bob did a good job with this episode what with the calling out people cringing at the prospect of a Power Rangers reboot while fawning over other, just as geeky, things themselves.
It probably helps that I was a huge power rangers fan growing up, though I was more ambivalent than anything else at the prospect of the reboot.
I'm exited about a first season Power Rangers movie, I was rather old when they came, but somehow it was something different from what I had as a kid, so I've taken a liking on them. I'm not gonna roll my eyes on it, but I'm not gonna drool on the floor for them either. Let's wait and see.
Is it too late to ask for a Biker Mice from Mars re-launch? I wouldn't mind a new cartoon now.
Or S.W.A.T. Kats for that matter. Or the Centurions... I better stop derailing...
I don't know... I sorta grew up with the first season (If I understand correctly this is the one they're attempting to reboot on the movie) and still don't think its a good idea. I'll wait and see what happens, but I don't think it end well.
Let the fans have their fun I say. Despite being the right age for them, I was only remotely aware of the Power Rangers but I stopped noticing their existence after the early noughties, so I'm out of it's audience.
Yeah, I don't see a Power Rangers being all that good honestly, and I was a fan as a kid. I mean, do you think a grim-dark Power Rangers would be any good? I certainly don't, yet we all know that thats a likely scenario. I just can't see it being good as anything more than a goofy, extremely fan-servicey movie with lots of dumb action poses, and honestly, I don't that that'll work for anybody who isn't already a big fan or below the age of ten. I don't think that it'll necessarily be bad, it just won't be Iron Man or Captain America, and thats even with an optimistic projection that they hire somebody who gives a shit and they don't do the dark,gritty reboot thing.
I really liked Power Rangers as a kid but I also really liked the Gen X stuff like Transformers and Xmen and all that.. probably because I'm awkwardly in between generations, not really old enough for Gen X, but not really young enough for Millennial. I was excited (and then disappointed) by Transformers movies, I love the comic book based movies, but I could care less about a Power Rangers movie.
Yeah, if someone really wants to see it, and someone really wants to make it, who am I to tell them no? I'm not going to see it though, despite loving the original series and movie as a kid. It's just not my thing anymore.
Fun Fact: the Power Rangers movie was the first one I saw alone, because my sisters and mom wanted to see Pocahontas instead. This also means I get to play the hipster card here 'ugh, I saw it with the original cast'.
My big question here is: does anyone really still care? Power Rangers is something you very easily grow out of, and it's trying to reboot the original series.
I am only slightly younger then Bob (31 to his 33) and was a fan due to my love of Giant Stompy Robots and of Martial arts movies. so I am not 100% sure this is an age thing. Unless you consider Bob and I being on the cusp of it and it caught me but not him.
oh I loved how the MMPR theme was edited in btw, good call on that!
What would the movie be like? Am thinking dark and gritty with zero silliness. If thats the case then no point making a movie. Never get why hollywood does that, make movies based on old shows and books and then totally ignore the source material completely. I guess the point is they are greedy arseholes that dont give a shit about the source material.
