The new Power Rangers movie is coming out and that has many people very excited. A lot of people, like me, watched Power Rangers when they were a kid. Now, most of us are in our twenties and thirties, but we still feel the nostalgia of Power Rangers when we think about it.

I remember watching Power Rangers when I was a kid. I was about twelve years old and I would go to my grandmother’s house after school and we would all eat dinner there. Power Rangers was one of the shows that were on as things were finishing up in the kitchen and I remember watching it and really enjoying it.

The New Movie

It’s really interesting to see the new Power Rangers trailer for the film. It’s funny to see Zordon played by Bryan Cranston, and Rita Repulsa http://www.mtv.com/news/2958229/power-rangers-rita-repulsa-green-ranger/ is played by Elizabeth Banks. I don’t remember Rita Repulsa’s outfit being that… anyway! Hopefully they don’t make the movie too mature. I think lot of parents are going to watch it with their kids so hopefully they keep this reboot’s age considerations in mind. Especially for the Power Rangers toys: http://powerrangersmerchandise.com/toys/

Brian Cranston as Zordon in New Power Rangers Movie

Bryan Cranston https://twitter.com/bryancranston?lang=en is really famous now after his role in Breaking Bad, so that gives me a lot of hope when I see the movie trailer featuring some really big names in Hollywood. Something you would hate to see for the new movie is that they just throw something together and it turns out to be a really poorly done, shoddy movie.

Hope for the Power Rangers Reboot

This is something that has happened a lot in the past, but fortunately it seems like Hollywood is stepping up when it comes to the whole superhero reboot thing. The Avengers were great movies. Batman and his reboot by Christopher Nolan were amazing http://movieweb.com/christopher-nolan-to-produce-batman-reboot-after-the-dark-knight-rises/. Now, hopefully the Power Rangers will get the same treatment and get a well needed reboot into the 21st century. There’s a great site reviewing the different Power Rangers merchandise here: http://powerrangersmerchandise.com/

This is a great reaction video for a super nerd. I think his reaction the mirrors mind pretty well.

Someone Familiar is a Ranger

I did notice one familiar face among the Power Rangers themselves. Most of the Power Rangers are unknown, at least to me. One of the girls, though, is someone I recognized, Naomi Scott (https://www.facebook.com/NaomiGScott/). I don’t know if you remember this, but Terra Nova was a pretty cool show several years ago. I don’t think the show made it past the first or second season, but I really enjoyed it. I’m not sure why more people didn’t watch it or why they canceled it but it didn’t last very long.

Anyway, the oldest daughter of the main character is one of the Power Rangers. It took me a few minutes to figure out who it was or where I saw her from, but that’s definitely her. I looked it up on IMDb – http://www.imdb.com/name/nm4305463/?ref_=tt_cl_t3.

Seeing her as one of the Power Rangers is a good sign too because that means that they got some pretty good actors. I remember her in Terra Nova and she was really good.

Nothing ruins movie more than awkward or uncomfortable actors. I would hate to see that the Power Rangers turn into some teen summer flick that just hired a bunch of aspiring models that don’t know how to act and threw them into these roles.

It seems like most of these actors are, although unknown, fairly talented.

Where to Get T Shirts and other Merchandise

One thing that I thought of immediately is about the Power Rangers t shirt. You know the ones I mean: http://powerrangersmerchandise.com/t-shirts/. Shirt the shirts that make you look like an actual Power Ranger. Hopefully they’re going to make some with the new Ranger suits for it, too, but I can imagine that the Power Ranger t-shirts are flying off the shelves right new, even the old ones.

They’re probably going to call it something like vintage Power Rangers t-shirts. I guess that makes me feel a little old, but that’s okay. I’ll enjoy it.
