The trailer isn't too shabby. Zordon looks cool, Alpha sounds all right, but I'm still unsure about the zords though. I'd still wait out the Blu-ray, but I'd actually buy it on principle alone.

I know that people on here have mixed opinions on Andre the Black Nerd, but his reaction to the trailer is priceless.

If you dont like andre it's probably cause you jealous. Dude is living the dream. I know he has a real job outside of all his videos but he could easily be the next Chris Hardwick and not have to "work" again

What does Andre do for a living? I cant really figure that out.


Anyone else read#11? I am curious as to your thoughts.
Spoiler:
An older alternate Tommy is the Mysterious White Ranger. That was not too hard to guess. I have heard another theory or two, but this was the main and likely direction. The Black Dragon is a remodeled Dragonzord? I thought Black Dragon could change his size though? While it makes sense there is a hole or two in that. Saba is around, but as an inanimate captive? Whatever they do I just want to keep Tommy in Green.

I'm not sure what he does. Same with Pixel Dan and I have met him twice. I wish AMC had given Pixel Dan and Andre a tv show rather than Kevin Smith and Greg Weisman.

Didn't Andre hype Out of the Shadows to death only to then help James Rolfe and Doug Walker critisize it?

Opinions can change. And you can still enjoy something while making fun of its flaws.

He hyped up all the various trailers and info releases about Out of the Shadows but his actual review of the movie he seemed rather underwhelmed by it.

I find it more than a little ironic that three high profile cheerleaders for a Fred Wolf inspired movie and advocates for the franchise to "embrace the goofyness" ended up being disappointed by the movie that did just that.

For me that Power Rangers trailer pretty much showed what was wrong with Out of the Shadows. Granted I'm a traditionalist so I would prefer designs and story closer to the classics but ultimately it looks like it's giving people what they expect to see. Putty fights, Zord battles. It may or may not be a good movie but it will at very least please us to the lowest common denominator and try and not Rise of the Silver Surfer Galactus cloud us like OOTS did.

The movie trailer is alright, it doesn't look amazing by any means but come on everything leading up to the trailers looked beyond awful they genuinely seem to be doing the best they can with what they got so I'm going to be watching it, the PD TMNT movie looked terrible but somehow the characters worked for me even if they messed up most things. I'm guessing it'll be something similar, especially since this movie seems to be echoing a lot of that other movie.


I finished season 3 of MMPR, well I guess technically I didn't but if Netflix considers Alien Rangers another series then I do too. This season is indeed weird, it's boring and this isn't the power rangers show I used to love but at the same time it's also interesting since things are constantly changing so even if some ideas aren't that great tehy are replaced rather quickly and evolving over the course of the season so you're never stuck with something bad for long. This season in particular was very serialized and man it's really connected to Zeo so I'm going to have to watch Zeo but I think it'll work out and I'll get close to finishing it before I start school. I like kat piloting with Tommy, why they chose her is really odd, what a weird choice to replace Kimberly and she had so many episodes to establish her, she's as bland as the other replacements. Why not use the sword of light to transfer the powers? IT would've helped smooth out things out why it was used before and done better. The whole "No I"m staying as a PR. Oh ok you convinced me good thing I told Kat and Alpha just in case you did" was a rather odd comment and didn't go on very well.

There are not many character episodes anymore, I guess this is why we never really bonded with the new cast as kids, the old cast had the benefit of having the previous seasons but that's the nature of making it more serialized. The metallic armor is ridiculous yet awesome, I wish that had been brought back in another season, I remember as a kid I thought the metallic armor would be the movie armor and was mad that it was only glitter


I still loved power rangers when S3 aired as a kid but I guess the popularity had waned? I loved it as a kid still even if I wasn't a fan of many of their decisions. The ninja stuff does make it lose it's appeal like I said it doesn't feel like the original show so maybe that's why it wasn't as popular even if it was only 3 years in. It also feels like a transition season for us to get used to the rangers not having anything to do with Dinosaurs and constant changes and to guide us to "Zeo" which would give us the more "yearly" sentai format of themes changing. I was also really mad as a kid they were slowly making the dinosaurs obsolete, in hindsight they should've broken from it since S2 even if it was a big risk, I think if they'd done that it would've definitely alienated fans at the time the fad was at it's peak but it would've also helped in the long run Power Rangers keep fans instead of losing so many of them after the fad died. Short term vs long term profits basically.

Other random comments. Ninjor and the rangers escalated the battles on more than one occasion. Rita and Zedd repeated many plots to attack the rangers, did the writers not have a "we already used ____ as a plot"?

Jealosy? Not his style is just annoying, I was a huge BlackNerdFan years ago before he started doing the daily videos and those old videos really are quality but then he changed to the "geek culture" is cool crowd and he's been more of a "hipster" geek since then. Alien Rangers and then Zeo so about 60 episodes left.

I'm happy for him since he always seemed as a chill guy but I understand the hate, in fact I'm tired of him as well because online people act as if he represented geek culture or had actual good opinions about upcoming projects when it's been clear as day he's a shill to any company and what's worse is he tries to make videos about anything "nerdy" so his fans spam his videos everywhere as if his biased/often uneducated opinions were any good and often they aren't not to mention he expresses his opinion on stuff he shouldn't be nostalgic about since he's too old to have even seen them and thiss is obvious as he has no real knowledge of them, he should stick to 80s stuff.

They had it listed as "season 3.5". It's also the case with the DVDs.

I always figured that they didn't use the Sword of Light to transfer Kimberly's powers to Kat because the power coins used at those times were different. When the Sword of Light was used, they still had the Dino Power Coins. The coins they had in season 3 were Ninja Power Coins.

But there was nothing metallic about the movie armor.

That trailer turned me into a fan girl. I've got a good feeling about this.

So I wanna start watching the series. Season 1 dvd or perhaps boxset like tmnt?

I finished watching Mighty Morphin Alien Rangers and it's kind of weird, I specifically remember the last time I saw Power Rangers as a kid was the last episode of S3 before the alien rangers mini-series begins with Zedd and the others gigantic and the rangers as kids however I also remember watching what happened in the alien ranger saga. Now in hindsight watching all the Alien Ranger mini-series is awesome almost as if a lost season and too bad we didn't get more kakuranger morphed footage but what we got was still great. The zeo quest really did set up Zeo perfectly and would've made the transition better of course at the time I thought it was just another random quest like the sword of light or whatever that was quickly forgotten. I liked Goldar/Rito being underground it was a lot of fun, definitely brought the comedy missing from Bulk/Skull. Hydro Hog was awesome and I'm glad he was set up as being the "big bad" of Aquatar and not just a random monster of the day. The whole Aisha power transfer to Tanya was so weird and badly handled, I just remember as a kid not caring much since I didn't like Aisha anyway. Billy being the only one who wasn't a kid was cool, I liked seeing him and wow he really does look like he evolved a lot character wise from the first season. I found it odd that every time Tengas attacked he was useless, I mean he fought countless of monsters without morphing and here he just stands around and let's the alien rangers do all the work, it would've been nice to have him fight and even morph into the classic suit one last time especially since they knew he wouldn't be a ranger next season.

I wrote about my thoughts on the upcoming movie at miscrave, I'm a bit bummed that I waited for so many years for a MMPR movie and this doesn't even use the MMPR theme very well and seems generic Power Rangers which would be fine if it was its own thing, everything about it seems a mess but I somehow think it'll somehow work in the end result.

The first episode of Ninja Steel was a solid start to the series. I'm looking forward to seeing what Lynn will do with episodes mostly taking place at school. The museum setting for Dino Charge was a really nice change of pace, but I think it's smart to have the rangers spending time at a school this season since that is where plenty of scenes of the reboot will take place. It might be early to say this, but from what I've seen from this episode the characters do have some personality and don't come across as robotic like the the majority of Tzachor's rangers were in the Neo-Saban era.

Also, Entertainment Weekly shared a video of the reboot's trailer with the classic theme song.

Eh... I think I could make a better mashup instead of just copy paste from the tv theme. The trailer sound effect is missing and it's pretty important for the overall feel of it. :/
