Power Rangers: Taking you back to the 90s

In the age of gritty, big budget reboots it was only a matter of time before Hollywood cashed in on the nostalgia factor and finally brought one of the most beloved children’s live-action series from the 90’s Mighty Morphin Power Rangers to the big screen.  Now, the series was known for its campy nature, so it’ll be interesting to see how the South African director Dean Israelite and the producers bring it to the big screen in a manner that is able to maintain that feel of a modern day blockbuster, without being too self serious.

I may not be a brilliant student, an exceptional debater or a God-gifted artist but the one thing I know I am is an avid television enthusiast and major celebrity gossiper.

Why Godzilla (2014) is one of the best summer blockbuster movies yet

This movie has been a long time coming. Brought to you by Legendary Pictures – the same studio that brought another monster-kaiju movie last year, Pacific Rim – Godzilla hits all the right chords for everyone, whether it is the die-hard Godzilla fan or the casual movie goer. Unlike the 1998 box office failure of the same name, this movie remake can stand on its own two feet; it has a back-to-basics approach that gives the origin story of the monster and then some. While paying homage to the original cult classic of 1954, Godzilla (2014) builds on a more realistic story arch that makes the whole notion of such a behemoth ...
