Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers the Movie Channels The Breakfast Club
The first trailer for the upcoming Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers movie landed at Comic-Con over the weekend, and I think I’m pretty pleased with the result. Seems like they’re really going to push the ‘teenagers with attitude’ thing with an extended Breakfast Club-esque origin.
It’s really serious and gritty, and I can understand that some people won’t like that. But honestly? I’m open to new experiences and interpretations. Power Rangers has pretty much been one thing for its entire lifetime, and the Mighty Morphin’ era is long in the past. I was a huge fan when I was a kid, so I’m definitely looking forward to this movie, and I’m excited for what they bring to the table. Let them try something new.
Camp is dead and should remain dead. Maybe someday it will come roaring back for some horrible reason, but it is not this day. So let’s give the super serious, kinda gritty Power Rangers a try. Consider me on board, if just to see what it’s like!
