I loved Mighty Morphin Power Rangers as a kid, perhaps too much. So there’s no way to stop me from going to see the new Power Rangers movie tonight!
And with any new movie, our favorite movie parody Youtube sites have done with work on the original Power Rangers movie — which I also enjoyed, at the time.
Here’s hoping this is the start of a new Power Rangers movie franchise! And I’m keeping my eyes peeled for any sign of the Green Ranger, the best Ranger.
Thanks to Screen Junkies for the nifty Honest Trailer.
As I do every weekend a new Marvel Netflix show comes out, I binge-watched the whole darn thing over the course of a couple days. I was born for binge-watching. Iron Fist is the last of the four main characters to get a solo show, building up to the united Defenders show airing in September. Marvel and Netflix have been hitting them out of the park this whole time, so how did Iron Fist hold up?
I liked it well enough, despite the harsh, negative reviews it’s been getting. It was an entertaining show. But Iron Fist suffers from a distinct lack of style or personality, which the other shows had in spades.
Season Rating: 7/10 – Good
As for the race controversy, I agree that it would have been nice had Marvel cast an Asian actor to play Danny Rand. It would have been a nice step and could have added a lot to the show, while taking away nothing. But I’m not going to hold it against the show that Marvel decided to stick to the character’s source material. I’m going to judge the show on its own merits.
And with that in mind, join me after the jump for my review of Marvel’s Iron Fist TV show! Expect full SPOILERS, in case you haven’t finished the show yet.
Found this pretty stellar Ms. Marvel fan film on io9 this weekend and wanted to share! I don’t share enough fan-made things and I’m hoping to fix that. So let’s start with this! It’s only 5 minutes long and damn good.
It’s Iron Fist weekend! Unfortunately, I don’t think Marvel released their new Iron Fist comic yet, so I don’t get that special sort of synergy. But while you’re reading these reviews, you best believe I’m binging some quality Netflix Defenders.
Fortunately, this week had some spectacular comics regardless, with new issues of Ms. Marvel, Harley Quinn, Hellcat and The Wild Storm! I also tried out the first issue of the new Batwoman series, and I’m considering getting back into Amazing Spider-Man!
Comic Book of the Week goes to the latest issue of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, which is telling some pretty stellar stories! Let us hope that next week’s movie can live up to the quality of the comic.
Meanwhile, I’ve been catching up on Tom King’s Batman, and it seems like I gave up on that series too soon. After the opening story, which I just didn’t like, King has been doing some amazing work with Bane, Catwoman, the Ventriloquist and more! I might have to add that back to my review pile.
Comic Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #25, Batwoman #1, Harley Quinn #16, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #13, Ms. Marvel #16, Patsy Walker a.k.a. Hellcat #16 and The Wild Storm #2.
I have no idea what’s going on in the new trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight. I think…the world has come to an end? It’s like a robot post-apocalypse.
I’m pleased to see that John Goodman’s Transformer is coming back. I’ve always been a little disappointed that most of the supporting robots get killed off quickly or disappear between movies. What’s the point of making these films if you can’t keep the recognizable robots? It can’t just be Bumblebee and Optimus Prime!
Also, am I the only person in the world who wants to see Shia Labeouf and/or Megan Fox to return? I want to see a connected Transformers movieverse.
Double also, I’m a little scared of how they’re going to sexualize this new little girl character. What strange, obscure sex laws are they going to pull out of their pockets this time?
