I showed my daughter an episode of some power ranger shit cause I was sick of watching Dora and now she wont shut up about it. It's pirate themed for some reason, they can turn into every other previous ranger or something and they fly around in a goofy pirate ship. New live-action movie announced and I know how much you folk love your reboots of kid's tv.
Also the guy who plays Ivan Ooze was in "The Long Good Friday" with my man, Bob Hoskins.
Personally, all I remember from power rangers is that I had my first orgasm lusting after Rita Repulsa when I was 11, which is quite late as I understand it. I made up for it by popping it proper younger than most, I rekons.
make my monster grow is a great tag; get on that shit, md.
There is such a tag and now bot videos it links have me creaming over Rita Repulsa, thanks fellas.
The guy playing Ivan Ooze is also Belloq from Raiders of the Lost Ark.
I'm glad they were able to get Billy to inform all the kids about what happens when you ooze.

Man, given the production value to income ratio this must have made a lot of people a lot of money.
That was always the secret to Power Rangers/Super Sentai's success. They intentionally make it with production values that are a decade or two behind everything else on television, then reap the rewards of low overhead.

I despise this show more than almost anything ever.
I only admire it for how it continued to re-invent itself and make a "new" show every couple of years so it could continue making money. Few shows for any age group learn to adapt so well.
Some guy that manages the toy section of the Target I work at told me they don't keep a lot of power rangers shit because they have to chuck the stuff at a faster rate than other toy lines.
If I remember correctly, this movie had the first CGI mo-cap fight in a major motion picture. I've been vaguely curious about how that looked, but never enough to bother even pirating the film or looking up the relevant clip on YouTube.
I also remember a load of Ivan Ooze toys being in a surplus store 'round here for years. You put slime in this bust of the guy, then pushed on this plunger until said slime came out of his mouth and nose. I can't see why it didn't sell like hotcakes.

I got really high and bought tickets to this movie so I could sneak into an r rated movie instead. When I came home my parents adopted new dog. Can't remember the name of the movie but Charlie was the best standard poodle.
On a trip to the Super Bowl Charlie looked out of the dodge spirt. He looked at me as if to ask "that's how you spell spirit?" At the time I was just a boy: a Super Bowl to me was Lucky Charms instead of the usual oatmeal.. Ironically, in hindsight I'd take the oatmeal. But Charlie understood.

This one isn't as bad.
Now, the sequel, that one is truly detestable.
That's about robo-cars right? Not the police cars from that other series I take it?

I haven't seen either one but I found out just now the character of Bulk and Skull have been on television for nearly 20 years. I weep for humanity.
Nah, Bulk and Skull left in the sixth or seventh season if I recall correctly. They made a few cameos afterward, but those were few and far between.
And if you're wondering why I know this, it's because I used to hang out with a guy who was the biggest Power Rangers fan I'd ever met. Even as a child I didn't know any kids as into it as him.
I mean he had the good sense to be in the closet about it with most people, but for some reason I was among the select few he had no problem showing the extent of his obsession. He had every single episode on DVD and would buy them as they came out and he knew everything there was to conceivably know about the show and how it was conceived. He even knew shit, like, I don't even remember being part of the show, like the names of the rangers' parents (who the fuck knew they had parents that were mentioned?)
Ironically, he also had a real hateboner for Jews, which always made me wonder, with all the shit he studied about the show, if he knew who was responsible for it's creation.

I would forgive obsessions with a lot of stupid shows but not this one.
It's just the dumbest thing ever made.
