Power Rangers

  1. What Joseph Kahn’s Gritty Power/Rangers Meant to a Lifelong Power Rangers Fan

    When the short film Power/Rangers blew onto the Internet way back in February (on my sister’s birthday no less), it came up out of nowhere. The first place I found out about the film was from HitFix, where movie critic Drew McWeeny unveiled the film, interviewed director/co-screenwriter Joseph Kahn about the project, and explained that the short film from Kahn and Dredd producer Adi Shankar was meant to be a hard satire - not of the Power Rangers, but of the very concept of "gritty” reboots.

  2. Things We Saw Today: What “Beyoncé Voters” Really Want From the Government

    1. To stop being called "Beyonce Voters," I'd guess.

    Despite what willfully ignorant political pundits would have you believe, all the single ladies want the same things out of government as everyone else. (via Mic on Facebook)

  3. Surprise! Director of Power/Rangers Doesn’t Give a Crap About Power Rangers

    Megazord haha more like megaDUH.

    We promise, we'll stop writing about this thirteen-minute long, overly gritty "fan film" when it stops being so endlessly fascinating to us.

  4. The Real Green Power Ranger Doesn’t Approve of That Gritty Fan Film

    Do you think he'd say he was... repulsa'd by it?

    The people behind the Power/Rangers fan film are probably a lot more concerned with the opinions of Saban's lawyers right now, but those who didn't like the movie just got some much better company: original Green Ranger Jason David Frank isn't having any of it.

  5. Director of Power Rangers Gritty Reboot Fan Film Being ‘Harassed’ by Saban, Copyright Claim Made to Vimeo

    It's legislatin' time!

    Yesterday the Internet was delighted and/or horrified by the release of Power/Rangers, a fan film from director Joseph Kahn featuring James Van Der Beek, Power Rangers, and Katee Sackhoff. But apparently Haim Saban, owner of the rights to the franchise and joint-producer of the upcoming Lionsgate Power Rangers film, was less than enthused by all of that free advertising.

  6. Katee Sackhoff Is the Baddest-Ass Pink Ranger in a Dark Power Rangers Fan Film With James Van Der Beek

    You're welcome.

    Remember that adult-themed Power Rangers fan film you always wanted to make? (Come on. Don't lie.) This is it, and yes, that's really Katee Sackhoff playing the pink power ranger and James Van Der Creek—sorry, Beek. So yeah, exactly like you imagined it.

  8. The Cast of Selfie Can Dance If They Want To (While Also Wearing Power Rangers Costumes)

    'Cause your friends don't dance and if they don't dance, well, they're no friends of mine

    Technically this video was released on October 31st in honor of Halloween, but you know what? You should be able to wear a Power Rangers outfit and dance around on any day of the year. November 3rd? Sure. December 19th? Of course. February 30th? I don't care that it's not a real date, you suit up and you rock on just like Karen Gillan, John Cho, and a tiny adorable child who I believe to be Keith L. Williams. You dance your little heart out, adorable tiny child.

  10. Former Power Rangers Stuntman Arrested For Cat Burglary

    No No Power Rangeeeeeeers!

    Yasutomo Ihara was once a stunt man on two of the biggest live action superhero franchises on Japanese TV: Kamen Rider and Super Sentai, the latter of which is recycled into Power Rangers for American audiences. All of that ended, though, when he injured his knee and was forced to retire from his life of acrobatics. What's a broke and desperate former performer to do? Why, turn to a life of crime, of course.

  12. A Ridiculously Comprehensive History of Sailor Moon – Part 1: Made In Japan

    In the Name of the Moon, I will meticulously describe things to you!

    Between Viz Media's recent remastered release of the original mid '90s anime, the upcoming 26-episode reboot set to hit the Internet in three weeks, and the ridiculous amounts of merchandise now for sale, it has never been a more exciting time to be a Sailor Moon fan. In honor of the new series, The Mary Sue will be taking a look at how Sailor Moon has grown over the past 20 years--starting, of course, with all the awesome Japanese stuff most of us couldn't get at as kids.

  13. We’re Getting a Power Rangers Movie Reboot From Lionsgate Whether Anyone Wants That or Not

    Get ready for the inevitable Voltron movie reboot from a competing studio.

    Just when you thought Hollywood would finally run out of ways to pillage your childhood, Lionsgate has announced that they've got a Power Rangers franchise starter in the works. At least Power Rangers has already been doing a pretty decent job of ruining itself with every new TV iteration, so you've got that to soften the blow, right?

  14. Baby Predator Steals The Show In Our 2014 WonderCon Cosplay Gallery

    Why Not Do It With Some Style?

    Power Rangers, look out! I mean, seriously, look out, there's an adorable child cosplaying Predator and you might step on the cuteness! Sigh.

  15. Even More Disney Princesses Dressed as Other Characters for Halloween

    Pretty Pretty Princess

    Isaiah Stephens wasn't done after the six Disney Princesses her dressed up for Halloween as other fictional characters. No, he had to continue with characters dressed as characters from Buffy, Korra, The Power Rangers, and the X-Men.

  16. Hero-Glyphics, Proof All Those Time Travel Story Events Were Real

    Our Adorable Past

    Josh Ln has uncovered some rare artifacts, indeed, but I mean it's not like the Egyptians were really nerds. They were probably only pretending to be to get the attention of the Greeks.

  17. How Pacific Rim Should Have Ended, Now With Bonus Voltrons [Video]

    The one thing Pacific Rim was really missing? Vacuum attachment arms.

    I feel deep in my heart that Pacific Rim is a totally amazing blockbuster movie, but I'll admit that there are a lot of points where you have to willingly suspend your disbelief. Naturally, Youtube animated channel How It Should Have Ended went ahead and poked at those points with a giant robot sword. Several giant robot swords, actually.

  18. TV and Movie Scenes Re-Created In Minimalist Legos

    Audience Participation

    Lego artist Nick Desimone has taken minimalist movie posters to the next level: minimalist Lego scenes. He renders classic characters in dioramas using the least amount of bricks possible, creating iconic moments without the benefit of faces, intricate detail, or non-geometric shapes-- just with brightly-colored blocks. Can you guess all of the movies and shows which are Lego-fied here? (via GeeksAreSexy)

  19. Happy Birthday! It’s The Avengers, If They Were the Power Rangers [Video]

    And All Was Right With the World

    It's not your birthday? ...well, it's not my birthday. You'd think that something this awesome could only be created for such an occasion. Anyway, Rob Bricken of io9 makes a valid point:

    Iron Man is the Red Ranger, naturally, Captain America is Blue, Hulk is Green... and then it gets tricky. Let's say Thor is Yellow, because of his blonde hair; Black Widow has to be black because of her outfit and her name, which means Hawkeye by default is the Pink Ranger.
    Hawkeye. No matter how you play it, he's always the Strong Female Character.
