Saban Brands and Lionsgate Home Entertainment sponsors today's review on the upcoming release of Power Rangers Dino Super Charge Vol. 2 Extinction. This two-disc set will release next Tuesday, March 7th, via Lionsgate Home Entertainment. The set consists of the final ten episodes of Dino Super Charge; which concludes our story that spanned two seasons. Now, while the series is adaptation of Toei’s Zyuden Sentai Kyoryuger, the finale for Dino Super Charge features significant changes. However, I will talk more about those changes later in the review. The first thing I need to talk about is the physical content such as packaging, and the artwork!   Volume 2 Extinction features incredible artwork, much like any other Power Rangers release from Lionsgate. I overly enjoy seeing the R...

Kamen Rider Snipe Episode Zero Announced

News, Uncategorized
In the official listing for the Kamen Rider Ex-Aid Blu-Ray Collection 2 set on Amazon it reveals that it will include an exclusive episode. This exclusive episode will focus on Kamen Rider Snipe, in a side story titled "Kamen Rider Snipe Episode 0". First off, several easily speculate that Episode 0 will revolve around the events of Zero Day. Therefore the episode will feature Taiga using the Proto Bang Bang Shooting Gashat to transform into Kamen Rider Snipe. Furthermore others also think it will be the full in-depth the story of how Taiga became an unlicensed doctor. Maybe both stories are one in the same, and will continue via future collections.

Why The Power Rangers Reboot Will Work

Why The Power Rangers Reboot Will Work

News, Uncategorized
There are a lot of movie fans out there who aren't particularly excited about the Power Rangers. For those that didn't grow up with the series or those that were never fans of the classic tokusatsu programs much of the appeal is lost. Sure, the Power Rangers were incredibly popular but their grip on America only lasted for a few years compared to the cultural icons they are in Japan. In the U.S. their reign in entertainment was as much about action figures as it was about shows and films. They weren't ingrained into society like the Marvel superheroes who had backgrounds in comics and 50 plus years of history before hitting it big with the movies. But it's exactly because of franchises like the Marvel Cinematic Universe that Power Rangers has a chance to succeed. One way of thinking o...
