Power Rangers sequel not dead (yet), according to director

  I've never been shy about my love of the new POWER RANGERS movie. It just hit all the right notes for me, even though it is certainly flawed (with probably the most egregious use of product placement in recent memory). Above all, it had a great cast, cool action, and a decent grasp of the tone - taking itself seriously, but not self -seriously. It's a tough balance, and I...

Go Go Power Rangers sequel! Franchise might still have legs, thanks to toys

Now I've made it no secret that I enjoyed this year's new take on the POWER RANGERS. I thought it had a lot of energy, I loved the cast, the action, and I think it was probably the best you could do with such a hokey property. It wasn't perfect (too much product placement, some dodgy CGI, etc.), but I wouldn't mind a sequel. So it was disappointing to hear that it...

It might be "No, No Power Rangers sequel" after it underperforms in China

Well, this is disappointing news. While the (reportedly) 100-million dollar POWER RANGERS movie did decent business in the US (around $85 million), it was assumed that the foreign box-office would pick up the slack, and still make a POWER RANGERS franchise viable. That's precisely what happened with PACIFIC RIM, so it seemed likely to happen with this film as well. However, that was...

Cool Videos: The MST3k bots riff on Netflix shows and read YouTube comments

Yesterday, there was a video of the robots from MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000, Tom Servo and Crow T. Robot (Baron Vaughn and Hampton Yount, respectively), trying to pitch their shows to Netflix's Chief Content Officer. Now, we can see them doing what they do best: riff on other movies, or in this case, other Netflix shows: They then read comments on the...

Cool Videos: The bots from MST3k pitch their ideas to Netflix

So I don't know how everyone feels, but I've been really enjoying the newest season of MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000, the cult sci-fi comedy show about a guy (in this case comedian Jonah Ray) and his two robot pals Tom Servo and Crow T. Robot (played in this iteration by Baron Vaughn and Hampton Yount, respectively) riffing on bad movies. I think some episodes (like CRY WILDERNESS and...

20 fan-favorite episodes of MST3k will stream on Netflix before new season

I've loved MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 - the show where a guy and two robots make fun of bad movies -  for as long as I can remember. I've said it before, but this airing on Sci-Fi channel (before that SyFy bullshit) early on Saturdays was the only reason I'd wake up in the morning as a kid growing up in the '90s. Hell, my friends and I quote the shows all the time...

Power Rangers TV Spots show some new footage, possibly solves Rita mystery

So the release of POWER RANGERS is just a month away, and the onslaught of advertisements has finally begun. Now, I know many of you are skeptical of this reboot, but I've been all in since the first trailer, and the new ones just keep getting goofier, more over-top, and - most importantly -  fun. I'm honestly hoping for the best. But for those on the fence, here's...

The Netflix MST3k revival series gets official release date!

It seems only yesterday that the Kickstarter for a MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER revival series was underway. It would go on to make almost 6 million dollars, and become the most successful Kickstarter campaign for Film/TV ever (beating out the previous champion, the VERONICA MARS movie). It was then picked up by Netflix for distribution. However, there was a question of...

Power Rangers releases fun new trailer

I was never a fan of POWER RANGERS as a kid, but I can't help but be excited about the new film. Call it cultural osmosis, but everytime I see a new poster, image, or trailer, it brings me back to my childhood. While I never really saw the show or have the toys, all my friends did, and I remember vividly the vicious arguments that'd break out about who got to play as Tommy,...

Pacific Rim 2 unveils new, sleeker Jaeger designs

PACIFIC RIM is a tough one for me, because I love SO MUCH about it (I'm a ten-year-old boy at heart, so giant robots and giant monsters punching each other will always be my jam); however, I felt the film overall fell a bit flat. Too much fighting at night and in the ocean, as well as a lead so boring that if he were a flavored popsicle, he'd be plain .  But I still...

Power Rangers VR experience reveals up-close looks at designs from the film

It is surprising how little presence the POWER RANGERS marketing has had, especially as it's so close to its release date. We've mainly gotten our look at the designs of the Zords and creatures through their toys , and so far its only released one trailer without any action, costumes, or Zords in it. While I've been championing the film, it does have me...

All Zords for the Power Rangers reboot finally revealed

Honestly, POWER RANGERS was never my thing, even as a kid. It didn't help that you had to be in shape to even pretend to do martial arts. However, I don't know what it is, but this movie has got me excited as hell. Maybe it's just that the core idea of POWER RANGERS is still solid: mixing giant robot/monster fight with kung-fu superheroes will forever be an inherently cool...
