That Fantastic Four movie was sooooo bad, but it was one that I knew was going to be trash going into it. All of the rumors and stories of the behind the scenes stuff ended up being way more interesting than that movie ended up turning out.

I really do wonder how the box office and the reviews for this Power Rangers movie are going to be.

This movie was directed by Dean Israelite, who directed Almanac. Josh Trank directed Chronicle and Fantastic Four.

Chronicle was pretty good though, albeit rather tragic.

Yeah I know. He mentioned Fantastic Four 2015 vibes, which makes sense since that same director did Chronicle - a movie a lot of people said this PR movie has a similar tone of.

Not that it's all one director....and yeah, I really liked Chroncile.

Here is my thoughts on Power Rangers Zeo, mostly what I'd posted here before but organized.

Zyu questions, was it ever explained how the four aliens and Scorpina hooked up with Bandora? Also, Lokar was it it the devil himself in Zyu or just a demon?

Any comments or speculation in regards to the Boom! series?

The four weren't aliens, all creatures in Zyu were natural to the earth. All the monsters were creatures from western myths. Bandora aligned herself with the creatures after the death of her son to take revenge on dinosaurs and the tribes.

And yes, lokar was called DaiSatan

As for my opinion on boom, I think it depends too much thoughts from the show itself and not too much on its own accord. Such as I believe that at this point, Boom Tommy hasn't really done much to deserve an "evil mirror" type of character

All natural to earth? Mind-blown! I am surprised at the logic to that even though I shouldn't. They all look like various aliens not oddly evolved species capable of human intelligence.

Was Dai-Satan the actual devil or was he just a demon?


I think you are saying the dark mirror twist came too early in the comic run? Maybe issue#50 not from the start and reveal in #9 overall.

Yeah, every creature was based on some western myth, none were alien. essentially. There is even a book the Zyuranger have that has all the legends inside, giving them some hint to defeating the monster as they were beaten in the past.
Goldar = Griffon
Scorpina = Lamia
Finster = Leprechaun
Baboo = Vampire
Squatt = Troll

and the monsters from the season all had some form of mythology connection. and according to the show, supposedly that the creatures were from said myths I believe.

It was like the same way as Kakuranger (MMPR season 3) where each monster was based on a ancient japanese creature.

and yeah, Dai-Satan was pretty much Satan, as he was the one that Bandora contracted with to have her powers.

Yeah, it definitely feels way too early in a comics' line for an evil mirror twist. at this time we barely got characteristics of the characters (Tommy himself had just beaten control from Rita) so the idea of going "Look, another universe" feels empty.

I was at Best Buy yesterday, and they have a stand with Lionsgate titles that include $6 in e-movie cash for the PR movie. Itls their PR titles, Hunger Games titles, and their Marvel titles.





Sorry about the picture quality.

I assume they are going to be apart of the Kamen Rider x Super Sentai film, but they also will be part of a three episode exclusive hero pass thing

That's usually never a good sign, right?

Of all the times I've seen movies try and do the whole "BUY THIS FILM AND GET A MOVIE TICKET TO SEE SOMETHING ELSE. PLEASE!!"...it's usually a big dash to try and get as many people to see it since it doesn't seem to be tracking well. The last I can remember was Amazing Spider-Man 2 which under performed pretty significantly if I recall?

I say its just cheap as all the company more or less paying for is reprints, and it's probably a very small order as it is only suppose to last for the movie. In regards to the promotion budget, it probably doesn't eat anything

And I don't get where that second comment comes into play, as I never once stated otherwise. Yes a lot of movies do it, again probably because it doesn't cost much and doesn't eat away at the budget for promotion the movie.

I used to watch plenty of movies for free through "movie" cash and back in the day they were worth up to $20 of your ticket. Zathura when I bought the Jumanji DVD, Jackson's King Kong when I got the JP Trilogy collection, Superman Returns with some DC title I assume I bought and Catwoman by buying the Batman TAS DVD set and those are the ones I can remember.

I was going to buy those DVDs anyway and would've paid for most of those movies to see them on theaters except maybe Catwoman/Zathura so the fact that I got to see a new movie for free was the icing on the cake.

That's glorious, I really want to see it.

How is that new Kamen Rider series? it looked lame but I hear good thing about it. Then again I should shut up about it since last time I tried to bring Kamen Rider into the thread I got shown the door.

For my Toku marathon this year I'm debating between watching a Kamen Rider show or finish off the Zordon saga with Turbo, In Space and Lost Galaxy. So this could be a contender or maybe KR Kabuto.

The same thing is going on with Logan, but I bet that isn't a problem.

I'm still not letting e-movie cash get me all worked up about how the sky is falling, as far as the PR movie goes. I don't even plan on seeing the movie in theaters, but I just thought I'd post it for anyone who might be interested.

Anyway, in DVD news, The MMPR seasons 1 & 2 set that's exclusive to Best Buy comes out next Tuesday, and now there's cover art for it.



It comes up on and off in the listing right now, but you can click on the link to see if you get to see it there as well.
