Movie Review: ‘Power Rangers’ Works as a Teen Drama, Fails as a Superhero Movie

The Power Rangers is a strange beast. For an aging generation, this remains a relic of a long lost childhood memory. A whole lot of saturday mornings were spent glued to the television, enjoying a karate driven action show, which was about a bunch of 30 year old actors playing teenagers, fighting faceless clay bad guys in morph suits. In retrospect, the original Power Rangers tv show was insanely corny, terribly acted, and riddled with embedded racism, but kids dug it because it was about teenaged superheroes fighting hammy villains. The new Power Rangers movie does reasonably well to...

Trailer Spotlight: ‘Death Note’ Teaser Looks Crazy Creepy

The teaser for the upcoming Adam Wingard Netflix movie adaptation of the famous Japanese manga, Death Note, is here, and boy is it creepy as hell. Wingard, who is most known for his recent Blair Witch film, is becoming a serious commodity in the horror scene, and this teaser fits the bill pretty well. Collider some to Wingard a little while back and he had this to say about his Death Note project: “We can do whatever we want. That was the cool thing about it, because it’s an anime film. So, technically, it’s a cartoon that you’re bring to life. To me, the thing about anime is that it’s so adult-oriented. I remember going to Suncoast growing up and you see Akira there with the little “Not for Kids” sticker on it. That always made an impact on me. So, doing my first live-action anime thing, to me it was important that you have those adult themes. So, it’s got nudity, it’s got swearing, it’s got a ton of violence. Jason Eisener, who did Hobo with a Shotgun. I brought him on – I’m good friends with him – as second-unit director. There’s basically like three good Jason Eisner short films in there and they’re all very gory. I was able to just turn him loose sometime, and just do some crazy stuff.” What better person to voice the...

David Fincher to Direct ‘World War Z 2’ According to Producer

Last summer it was reported that Brad Pitt was trying to convince his good buddy David Fincher to direct the World War Z sequel. Imagining Fincher stepping in to helm a zombie action flick is not confusing and intriguing, but it certainly makes this project much more interesting. There is no denying that the original World War Z had some serious issues while production, which led to reshoots that were essentially the equivalent of punting and starting over. While Fincher’s sets are sure to be more disciplined, its unclear whether or not the famous director will want to avoid...

Trailer Spotlight: International Trailer For ‘Baby Driver’ Showcases Some of Edgar Wright’s Personality

I was recently on the Pay Me No Mind podcast and was asked a very valid question: “what’s the difference between Baby Driver and Drive?” While the two films are definitely separate, the first trailer for Edgar Wright’s upcoming action thriller definitely drew some parallels to Nicholas Winding Refn’s 80’s throwback. The only response I can muster, is that Baby Driver seems to be what most people expected Drive was going to be, which is a crazy fun, balls to the wall, humorous action thriller set to a soundtrack. The international trailer is definitely a more clear depiction of what this film seems to be, with a larger focus on the soundtrack, and some of the quirky humor that Wright is apt to bring on his projects. The international trailer also sheds some more light on Baby’s relationship with the various criminals he is surrounded by, and it also reveals a few more action set pieces that are sure to make this movie one to remember. The music is what is going to set this apart, that and the comedy, which is much more prevalent in this trailer than the American one. Baby Driver stars Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx, Lily James and Jon Bernthal. The film is written and directed by Edgar Wright, and is set to release August...

Upcoming ‘Overlord’ Could Be The Latest Addition to JJ Abrams Clover-Verse

JJ Abrams has proven to be one sneaky bastard with his projects. From the abject mistruth of Khan in Star Trek, to the neck breaking twists and turns on Lost, Abrams loves to screw with his fan base. Last years 10 Cloverfield Lane threw everyone for a loop when it literally came out of nowhere when it was revealed to be a part of cinematic universe, or clover-verse, if you will. With all the mystery that Abrams production company, Bad Robot, keeps about their projects, it’s no wonder that the upcoming WWII film Overlord, is starting to raise some...
