No Ranger is safe. Or so they tell us in the promos for the upcoming Power Rangers: Shattered Grid, the first mega-crossover event from the stellar comic book series published by BOOM! Studios. Based on the exploits of the Teenagers With Attitude from Angel Grove High and their many successors in the long-running superhero franchise, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Go Go Power Rangers have been showing us how it's done in the pages of their two ongoing comic series, outmatching the current TV series in quality at every turn. With Shattered Grid, the two share the grand canvas of this massive story that seeks to gather up Rangers from all over the television continuity for a crossover the likes of which fans have never seen. A trailer has been released featuring the voice of Green Ranger...

You know, I'm sure they exist, but I can't fathom how any fan of the Kamen Rider franchise can watch this series from the beginning up till now and not be swept in by it. Kamen Rider Build is the most consistently excellent series in the franchise in many moons. And, though we predicted how certain events like those found in this gripping episode would play out, even we could not have expected it to strike us like this. It hits like a ton of bricks, then picks up the bricks in a large sack, ready to swing them all back at you a few more times. In this challenging installment, young genius Kiryuu Sento proves hazardous to his enemy's health, and to himself, as he takes an impossible situation in the superpowered war between feuding territories and somehow makes it worse. Who he turns to i...

Grab your hoverboard and activate your self-lacing shoes. A manga adaptation of Back to the Future is on its way to reinvent our history one page at a time. The 1985 Robert Zemeckis classic about a teenager who travels back thirty years and meets his future parents only to potentially ruin the events that lead to his own birth, is being revived in comic form, as only Murata Yuusuke can depict. The manga artist's biggest claim to fame is his highly celebrated series One-Punch Man, which itself has been adapted as an anime title of the same name. News of this first came to us during a press event for the upcoming Ready Player One, directed by Steven Spielberg, who of course was heavily involved with the Back to the Future movie series through his company Amblin Entertainment. Any avid S...

Giant monsters are often synonymous with toppling skyscrapers, civilians screaming as they flee through crowded streets, cars crushed, windows shattered. What we see less often are those titanic terrors in an environment less advanced than the modern age of rolling tanks and atomic bombs. Before we had the Super-X to take on the likes of Godzilla with futuristic weaponry, there were swords and primitive guns fighting the good fight against all things scaled and gnarly. That's where Koujin comes in. The kaiju film set in ancient Japan, where humanity's ability to defend itself may be a bit lacking. It's All You Can Eat Week at the Human Buffet, boys and girls. Author Miyabe Miyuki's eponymous novel about neighboring villages beset by monstrous attacks sets this NHK television film adap...

Twenty episodes in and Kamen Rider Build, the latest in the ongoing Kamen Rider action/adventure franchise, has taken us by storm. To celebrate, we're serving up a look-see at the world of the series through a collection of pretty pictures showcasing the heroes, the villains, and everything in-between as the ride stretches onward. In almost two dozen weeks worth of reviews, detailing the events of this standout series, we've amassed just a few images, most of which never made it into any post on our site, so why not take a gander at the goods, just for (rider) kicks. Every Build review we've done is now linked with its successor, so you can fully catch up on the story while experiencing all the wild speculation, iffy spelling choices, and silly theories in airing order without hav...

Guess who's back. Tell a friend. Those motley mutates with a penchant for separating limbs from bodies have returned for one final round, this time on the big screen. Kamen Rider Amazons, Toei Company's online streaming series reviving the slightly more violent and risque trappings of a bygone era from the far-reaching Kamen Rider franchise, is making the jump from television to film. After two successful seasons releasing episodes on Amazon Prime Japan, the transforming, bike-riding warriors will have their last battle in movie theaters this year, and here's a teaser to show them off in all their brooding glory. Loosely basing some of its aesthetic trappings on the 1974 original Kamen Rider Amazon (hold the "S"), the modern series follows the exploits of a group of operatives tasked ...

In case word hasn't traveled to your neck of the interwebs just yet, there's somehow a Detective Pikachu movie getting made. What's more amazing is that this flick, based on the popular video game and anime series Pokemon, in which "pocket monsters" battle it out for sport, is starring Ryan Reynolds. As Pikachu. The cartoon rodent-looking thing that generally doesn't say anything but repetitive variations on the syllables of his own name. Even after weeks of information slowly dripping out of the tap on this production, we're still asking if there's any way this could be a really expensive mix-up. Are we getting punk'd? Is getting punk'd still a thing? This question and many others need answering as we countdown to the release on this alleged movie. Ryan Reynolds has been acting his p...

Well, that settles it. Kamen Rider Build is easily one of the best in the franchise. With twenty episodes of this exciting series in the can and not a single rotten apple in the bunch, there seems to be no stopping Team Build and their exceptionally well-told adventures protecting their home of Touto from enemies without and within. In this installment, one character falls from grace, another rises to the occasion, and the simplest answer turns out to be the right one, in one of the smartest, most consistently thrilling shows in the decades-long Kamen Rider saga. It's almost criminal how easy they make it look, and we're counting our blessings that the confidence on display in the first third of this story translates to the rest. We should be so lucky. Time flies when your eyes are gl...
