Power Rangers
Director: Dean Israelite
Screenwriter: John Gatins
Cast: Dacre Montgomery, Naomi Scott, RJ Cyler, Becky G, Ludi Lin, Bill Hader, Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Banks
Distributor: Lionsgate
Rated PG-13 | 124 Minutes
Release Date: March 24, 2017

“Different Colors. Different Kids. Different Colored Kids.” The Power Rangers are the zeitgeist of 90’s Saturday morning television. But the series isn’t exactly the sparkling example of quality acting and writing. None of that really mattered as a kid as long as the title heroes defeated the monster of the week. So in an age where TV shows are getting the big-screen adaptation treatment, it was only a matter of time before studios would take their eyes on our Saturday morning cartoon favorites.

As fans got older so did the franchise. The Power Rangers constantly changed teams, themes, and stories. But one thing remained true: it was always going to be campy. However, with this new reboot, titled simply Power Rangers, we are introduced to a few more bold ideas, like the introduction of a gay character as a ranger, and one ranger who has Autism. These new ideas are a reflection of the world that we live in today, gives way to those who are trying to find out who they are the impression that they have someone they can relate to. That in itself gives hope and inspiration while also being fun and nostalgic. My full review of the film below.

This time we finally get to see the five title heroes in their morphed up forms, and a glimpse of the five new zords and their unified Megazord form.

Bill Hader to Voice Alpha-5 in Power Rangers

The heroes for the new incarnation of Power Rangers are relative unknowns, while the villains and supporting roles have gone to more recognizable names like Elizabeth Banks and Bryan Cranston. This was the plan going into the movie from the very beginning, and it looks like they are following through as the latest casting gets yet another famous comedian to join the ranks of the Rangers. Bill Hader will now be the voice of Alpha 5, the bumbling robot with a heart of gold who often assists Zordon, who is otherwise trapped in a time wrap, by giving the Power Rangers the tools they need to save the day.

More on the story below.

Movie Review: The BFG

Movie Review: Steven Spielberg's THE BFG, starring Mark Rylance.

The BFG
Director: Steven Spielberg
Screenwriter: Melissa Mathison
Cast: Mark Rylance, Ruby Barnhill, Jemaine Clement, Penelope Wilton, Rebecca Hall, Rafe Spall, Bill Hader
Distributor: Walt Disney Pictures
Rated PG | 117 Minutes
Release Date: July 1, 2016

Roald Dahl created some of the most beloved children’s stories of the 20th century, including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, James and the Giant Peach, The Witches, and Fantastic Mr. Fox. Like Walt Disney, Dahl had a knack for fusing the fantastic with the frightening, blending sweetness with sadness in a way that resonated with old and young alike.

Dahl’s The BFG was first published in 1982, the same year Steven Spielberg’s own seminal tale of friendship, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, captured the hearts and imaginations of audiences around the world. It’s funny how things work out. Three decades later, Spielberg and his E.T. collaborator, the late screenwriter Melissa Mathison, have adapted the Dahl’s timeless adventure for the big screen.

Disney's The BFG

Disney has released the official trailer for The BFG, director Steven Spielberg‘s adaptation of the 1982 Roald Dahl story of the same name, which is set to release later this year fairly close to the 100th anniversary of Dahl’s birth. A teaser trailer for the movie was released back in December of last year, and can viewed right here if you missed it.

The new trailer gives us a much better look at the movie and the BFG (Big Friendly Giant) himself (played by recent Oscar winner Mark Rylance), and perhaps even some BNSFG (Bigger Not So Friendly Giants).

Sony has just released the first trailer for the Seth Rogen‘s “R-rated style Pixar movie” called Sausage Party. The film centers on grocery items who believe that when purchased, they go off to a better place. Little do they know, that they were meant to be consumed. But not before they are sliced, diced, chopped, cooked, and then chewed.

Upon realizing this, Frank (a hot dog voiced by Rogen) escapes from his human oppressors and heads back home to the grocery store to warn his fellow food products about the impending doom. Check out the full trailer below.
