Goldar confirmed for new Power Rangers reboot

10.12.2016

Man, I know people were shitting on it, but I f*cking loved the new POWER RANGERS trailer. Well, love is a strong word. Excited, for sure. Thing is, I never liked POWER RANGERS growing up, because even as a five-year-old I thought it was too childish and goofy (which it was, but also five-year-old Damion was kind of a dick). However, I always loved the idea behind POWER RANGERS. Who wouldn't? It's got kung-fu, monsters, and giant robots! It's more the execution that brought the show down, and even then it had its goofy charms.

Which is why I like the direction they're taking the film. They're amping up the teen melodrama - which I actually like, because I love teen movies - and giving it a more realistic tone. This means the giant monster/robot brawls should be epic as f*ck, instead of clumsy rubber suits stumbling over cardboard buildings. However, if the character posters are anything to go by, there will still be a lot of pose-fighting in the fillm. 

Speaking of monsters, it seems fan-favorite Goldar from the TV series is going to be making an appearance in the new film. Hell, even as the only asshole kid not doing kung-fu moves on the playground (because friends are overrated), I still thought Goldar looked boss-as-shit. So I'm excited to see how the film redesigns him to fit in this more gritty, grounded world. I actually like the redesigned costumes (not love necessarily, but I understand the need to modernize), and while I was iffy on the production stills for Elizabeth Banks's Rita Repulsa get-up, I actually thought it looked pretty cool in the trailer itself. So we'll see. Either way, I'm keeping an open-mind.

POWER RANGERS will morph into theaters March 24th, 2017.

So what do you guys think? Were you fans as kids? And if so, which Ranger did you choose (or were forced to) play as?

Extra Tidbit: In the first ever episode of the POWER RANGERS TV show, Goldar was the villain that fights the Rangers (or, in the first episode, just Jason) in their Zords. And he's also one of the few villains on the show who survived that kind of encounter.

Interesting....

Not a chance I'd see this in theaters, but I like that they are going with the Chronicle version of a superhero origin story. Seemed like they weren't trying to talk down to kids at all. I wonder if that strategy will pay off....

I wonder if they will cross over with the ninja turtles in the sequel like they did in the tv show. That was something tosee, rita mind controlled the live action next mutation turtles to fight the rangers.

YES! YES! 1000x YES!!!

This Gold fucker was like the "StarScream" for us 90's kids.
Just hearing Lord Zedd tell Goldar if he fucked up 1 more time he'd kick him in the balls so hard he'd be tasting meatballs for breakfast went over my head for years until I watched the episodes again as an adult!

Trivia: In the original Japanese version, Goldar and Scorpina are a couple and had a baby.

Goldar confirmed... how will they fuck him up too?

I want to see the monsters, I want to see something fun, not Chronicle on ambien mixed with an extra dose of angst. This doesn't look fun, it looks boring. The first trailer was horrible. Why are they all superman outside of their suits? They shouldn't have super powers. The suits should be more like Guyver and give them the abilities. Its too fucking stupid and its based off a campy 90s show. That says a lot.

Obviously, they have super powers from their power coins that they found at the spacecraft crash scene. Im just sad we didnt get to see Bryan Cranston as Zordon and who's doing the voice of Goldar. We already know about Alpha 5.

Cool, but only if they make him a awesome villain for the rangers to fight, and not just Rita's lackey/comic relief.

The idea itself is corny, and this movie just looks like any other generic YA franchise. This could have been fun if they embraced the goofiness.

In the M.M.P.R. seasons, GOLDAR was one of the few villains who actually looked menacing (the others were LORD ZEDD and RITO). Therefore, keeping the original design is more important with him than RITA or anyone else. In the show, he would alternate between badass and comic relief but, in the 1st movie, he was a complete joke. Please, don't do that. And don't have him say (out of nowhere) that he thinks the PINK RANGER is pretty.

I am the exact same way. I liked the idea behind Power Rangers as a kid but it was corny af. Goldar was also my favorite which I remember. It's been a while.

Awesome!

Haven't heard many people not liking the tailer side from them having powers outside the suits. It's about as good as you can get for a power rangers movie without the camp. Goldar was my favorite character from the OG series. Hopefully he still looks like Goldar. Hope there's a credits teaser that shows Lord Zedd

Great news! I just hope they don't change his signature character design too much for this new interpretation.
