Power Rangers 2017: A Batman-Begins Style Reboot That Works

Power Rangers 2017: A Batman-Begins Style Reboot That Works

2 years ago, Joseph Kahn’s satirical and ultraviolent Power Rangers short win the Internet as its statement of “This isn’t your little brother’s Power Rangers”. However once the story starts in earnest, we realize that Saban try to make a Power Rangers 2017 in the vein of Chris Nolan’s Batman Begins. There are plenty of low-key laughs in the movie, and the picture still works as kid-friendly entertainment. This is an honest attempt to create a Power Rangers 2017 movie taking place…

Stuck between adulthood and adolescence – Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

When J.K. Rowling’s first Harry Potter book published in 1997, the main character was a 10-year-old, and his adventures were appropriate to kids at the same age: he went off to magical school for wizards, made friends, survived bullying, played sports, broke some rules, learned some secrets, and ultimately discovered that his mom’s love had him protected from the scariest things in the world. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone had its dark and scary elements, but it…

Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them: A Review

Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them: A Review

You have to give it to J.K. Rowling. Rather than spin-off fresh big-screen adventures for the generation-defining boy wizard, she and the Warner Bros team have created a completely different wizard saga: a new time, new place and entirely new characters in Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them. That’s a heavy world-building job to do, so Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them  has a bit of the same dense exposition of the first two…

Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them: Hardly Fantastic

Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them: Hardly Fantastic

The obvious anti-Fascist sentiment of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them – a film that’s arriving just as the U.S. attends a major political shift – should make it seem like the movie of the moment. But it’s not quite a film for any specific moment. While this Harry Potter spin-off – Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them includes some charming and sometimes astonishing special effects – and was adapted by J.K. Rowling herself, using her 2001 faux-textbook of the same name…

X-Men Apocalypse, Directed by Bryan Singer, is the ninth film in the X-Men franchise, hews hard to all the genre verities including, as its title more than implies, an end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it threat. “Mutants are born with extraordinary abilities,” Professor Xavier (James McAvoy) says as the movie begins in darkness.

Mad Max Fury Road: Beware of Battle Fatigue

Mad Max Fury Road: Beware of Battle Fatigue

It’s clear that the famous phrase of making is clearly “everything louder than everything else” of Deep Purple makes a great inspiration for George Miller as he reboots his low-budget road-warrior hit in 1979 with more money, more trucks, and much more noise. Mad Max Fury Road is the great combination of action movie and death metal concert. Watching Mad Max Fury Road  is cinematic equivalent of putting your head in the bass-bin of metal rock. We…

Captain America Civil War – When Super-Bro Against Super-Bro

Captain America Civil War – When Super-Bro Against Super-Bro

An aura of vaguely topical importance is as vital to a superhero-franchise movie as a merchandising deal. Captain America Civil War is a pause for a few moments of chin-scratching thinking about whether a group of genetically advantaged, highly weaponized individuals should be brought under the supervision of the United Nations. More seriously the movie glances at some of the moral complexities of modern warfare. The designated good guys are responsible for the deaths of innocents,…

War for the Planet of the Apes Gives the Trilogy the Deserved Ending

In 2011, when Rise of the Planet of the Apes released, it was more of a sci-fi curiosity than anything. A medium-sized, impressive homage to one of the better known weird-fiction movies. The reviews were from good to fine. People liked War for the Planet of the Apes, and it came and went. In 2017, after an epic, beautiful sequel, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the prequel trilogy has quickly morphed into one of the…

The Best Of Doctor Strange (Part 2)

For a film that’s quite controversial, Man Of Steel has had a large-scale effect on the later superhero movie. More specifically, its collateral-damage-heavy, skyscraper smashing finale – Avengers Age Of Ultron, Batman v Superman Dawn Of Justice and Captain America Civil War all to alternating degrees feel a like direct response to the controversy that came after Superman’s seriousness in that movie. The best response to destruction porn yet Doctor Strange appears to be too, but it’s…

Once again, a Marvel superhero has outclassed his enemies and rules the box office. For the 14th time in a row, a MCU movie peeked at number one, with Doctor Strange exceeding anticipations, despite one of the more far-out premises of the franchise, a new character, and a leading man, Benedict Cumberbatch, who’s mostly unconsidered as a leading actor in the blockbuster world. However, the magic Marvel formula saw the film having good critics and positive reaction from…
