    Quite an interesting twist on the franchise. The original Power Rangers were kinda like the cool kids.

    Just got back from this movie with my wife. And I have to say, It was way better than it had any right to be. Even my wife loved it, which I was shocked by.


    Everything worked really well.

    I have had 3-4 friends go see it and they thought it was amazing. I was going to wait for it to be a $3 matinee or rent it, but I may just bump it up my list and go see it now.

    Went and checked this out today with the kid , I pushed him into it and I'm happy we did as I loved damn near every minute of it. It was the perfect blend of nostalgia and new storylines for the kids - the dark tones were great - the corniness seemed to fit in - and the overall humor was solid. I didn't hate any of the Rangers - as a fan of the original MMPR and only the original MMPR's this movie hit all the cues for me and I can't wait to watch it again.

    Yep, read that earlier.

    I'm hoping they'll have enough sense to not turn the greatest Ranger ever, into a chick. I also read somewhere, that they had plans for at least six Power Rangers movies, depending on how well this one does.

    I already see this movie, and it's better then I expected not too bad.

    My only complaints well a few complaints. Don't like the way they made Goldar, the girl that plays Rita is meh to me, and most important I thought Alpha was ugh I want to punch a wall everytime he talks, and don't like the way they made alpha too. But that is of course that is maybe just me.

    And they better not make the Green Ranger as a female.

    I was blown away by it in the best way possible. Totally agree that Elizabeth Banks as Rita was the obvious weak link in the film, but everything else was BEYOND on point.

    I'm shocked at the reaction to the thought of Tommy being a girl. I love the idea, and actually thought of it myself after the movie before seeing that the cast was lobbying for it. I think it'd be fucking awesome.
    It could also potentially....

    It's a new game, folks. Be open to change.

    Change is one thing, but I never like these types of changes because it does feel like change for the sake of change.

    I saw it today and it was just phenomenal. So happy with how much it respected the source material while providing a very relevant, modern take on teenagers. I mean, who would think a Power Rangers movie would be able to cover depression, sexual identity, bullying, autism and nude photo distribution ... and do it well.

    Solid flick, just a pity the design department was so off the mark, armor was weak, the Zords were fugly, and Alpha was terrible. But the movie itself was entertaining enough, nothing terribly memorable, certainly not a great movie, but remarkably okay. Disagree with Banks being the weak link, she was the most Power Rangers-y thing in the movie, was a moment at the end where she slipped off a bit, but in general the acting was just serviceable across the board anyway. Still, with as bad as it looked, coming out competent is a rousing success. Next movie should be better now that they got all the origin stuff out of the way, took a long time for the movie to really get going, hopefully if they use Zedd the design department makes something much more faithful.

    Just saw it. Was okay. Loved the Green/Pink cameo at the end. I read the posts so far in the thread and have to say I'm okay with Tommy being a girl if that's the route they go. Normally I hate that sorta thing but hey, it evens out the male-female ratio in the movie. The previews I thought were garbage, but it had enough jokes which I didn't think we'd get from the way they were presenting it originally.

    I also have developed a new habit with movies. Once the credits hit I pull out the phone and find the wiki entry. I then scroll to the bottom to see if there's a mid/post credit scene. Saves me a headache if there isn't one!

    Due to the very poor opening day of Power Rangers in China, it looks unlikely that there'll be any sequels.

    $85 in US box office, and an estimated $60 million in foreign box office. They get to keep about half of the US ($43 million), and a third of foreign ($20 million) because of theater costs/taxes/other costs. That's about $63 million.

    The budget for Power Rangers was $100 million, not including marketing/advertising costs. Power Rangers might be able to close the gap with toy sales, home release, and merchandising, but best chance scenario is a zero gain from the movie.

    I know Saban is very passionate about making this a franchise, so he might try to steamroll another film into being made, but without support from China's box office, investors might not take much interest. Japan's release date is July (only major market not to open yet), so they would have to do amazeballs for there to be any hope really.
