Saban’s Power Rangers directed by Dean Israelite (Project Almanac), took a childhood TV show and made it modern and up to date while keeping its core essence intact from where it started. This is a definitely a reboot as we get an origin story of how five teenagers who don’t know each other being brought together by fate to become the next generation of superheroes to protect the town of Angel Grove as well as Earth from menacing alien creatures and villains who want to conquer Earth.
I honestly welcome reboots and remakes because it’s a way to see a story and characters you already know and told from a different perspective. These movies should definitely be used towards material that was not good the first or maybe even second time around (Hint Hint Super Mario Bros.)
So this week I had two choices that I wanted to do. The other choice was Donnie Darko. I love that movie and I don’t see myself changing my mind on one of my favorite movies of all time. I ain’t mad at Disturbing Behavior. This movie, in 1998, released at the right time. This is when all the teen angst thrillers were coming out giving the young adults what we want from all the teen horror movies coming out at the time. I remember watching this movie and having so much fun watching it. I was a junior in high school at the time so this movie taking place in high school made it easy for me to relate to it. Adding in the horror/thriller element made the film more interesting. Does this movie still hold up to the appeal it had in the late 90’s? I think I will still love it like I did when I watched it 18 yrs ago.
