    It’s beginning to feel like Bob Orci and his Amazing Friends have some kind of personal vendetta against me. He and his cohorts fucked up Transformers, Star Trek, Ender’s Game, Amazing Spider-Man 2, Parts: The Clonus Horror (hah), and now he’s gunning for something else I love. Fantastic.

      There’s a VERY BIG upswing from that. Transformers may have gotten fucked up to you, but the shit tons of money it brought in made it so that we could get all manner of different toy lines, comics and Transformers Prime which I thought was a fantastic cartoon. You don’t have to like the movies, but this will mean the entire brand will get a ton more money to play with and that means a ton more products for hardcore fans to enjoy. Who knows.. maybe they’ll even hook us Super Sentai fans up with some releases of the Japanese shows. If it becomes as sucessful as the Transformers franchise, the sky is the limit for what we will get out of this.

        “Don’t care about the quality if it sells” very Saban.

          I…. wouldn’t say that…. I know they listen to fans and the PR Series IS taking a new direction with a new creative team. If they didn’t care about what fans thought about the quality of the show…. why change creative teams?

          And again.. more money for the franchise means more awesome chances able to be taken for hardcore fans and what we want.

        Look, I dig toys and stuff as much as the next guy who has a shelf in
        his room dedicated to robot dragons from Japanese shows, but ultimately
        what I want is an attempt at some character, maybe a little care put
        into the plot and dialog, and most of all, something that echos the
        spirit of Power Rangers. I’m not looking for One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s
        Nest, but something along the lines of Pacific Rim would do.

        problem is that both Thor and X-Men 4 were seriously re-written before
        the cameras rolled on either of those movies so I have zero idea about
        how well they do or don’t write. What I do know is: Even if they’re good
        writers, their work gets approved or rejected or altered at the whims
        of the producer, and Bob Orci is one of the worst hacks in the history
        of genre filmmaking. He completely misunderstands every single thing he
        touches- stuff that is not at all hard to ‘get’ (like Star Trek and
        Spider-Man)- so how in the hell is he supposed to know what makes a good
        Power Rangers film?

        Yes, it’s super cool that we’re going to
        get a bunch of new product to consume. Yes, it’s super cool that this
        film will help (along with Godzilla, Pacific Rim, etc.) to shine a light
        on tokusatsu. But what I really want, more than any of the merch, is a
        good movie. I can’t be excited for the movie with that anti-talented,
        brain dead ass-clown standing watch over the whole thing.

        And I
        seriously doubt we’ll ever get Super Sentai shows in their original
        unadulterated forms stateside- Saban employees have been very emphatic
        that such a thing isn’t happening. Of course, there are always other
        super sentai shows out there that could use a freaking mainstream
        COUGH MORE ULTRAMAN HACK WHEEZE), and maybe those releases become more
        likely. Cool. But then that doesn’t take into account the worst case
        scenario: They make an awful movie, it bombs, and all of this stuff
        continues to be stuck in its own little ghetto. If we had someone with
        some freaking talent working as the producer, maybe we’d at least get a
        decent movie even if it ended up bombing (a bombing that has at least
        50/50 odds).

        Faithfully submitted,
        -Debbie Downer

        PS: For the record I didn’t particularly care for Transformers Prime, either, but
        to each their own. I will admit that Prime is leagues better than any of the
        Bayformer movies, but then so is dying of legionnaires disease.
