I knew I was forgetting something.
Here's the trailer for the upcoming Rampage film, based upon the classic 1986 arcade game of the same title, featuring giant monsters whose objective is to survive against military assaults rightfully protecting cities from their wrath and then reduce said cities to smoldering ruin. In the current cinematic climate, where giant monsters are now fairly prominent and viable as "serious" blockbuster fare, how does one adapt what one couldn't be blamed for thinking was a silly take on the kaiju subgenre? Well, you hire a charisma factory like Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, of course. Mission accomplished.
In this film that reads like a series of sarcastic late night tweets taken more seriously than intended after too much to drink, the former WWE wrestlin...

Marking the atomic lizard's first major 3D animated feature, Planet of the Monsters is the first of a planned trilogy in this format, the results of which we'll be watching with great interest.
I may never tire of watching Godzilla charge up for a nuclear blast. The energy surging up his spine, crackling throughout his body until at last releasing is a sight to behold in any entertainment medium, when done correctly. We await the film's international Netflix release wit...
Those of you looking to get more of that Dynaman goodness from last month are in for a treat. The 1986 classic parody dub of Japan's Kagaku Sentai Dynaman is back with more episodes to stream from original distributors Night Flight. As previously reported, Dynaman, in all its wacky glory, was one of America's first official glimpses into the world of Super Sentai, years before the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers would take households by storm in the 90s. Originally, the niche streaming service Night Flight Plus had only offered three episodes to watch, but now they've doubled that digit for more color-coded explosions to sate your appetite for tokusatsu's early English-language oddities.
Whether one chooses to watch them with an earnest appeal, as an anthropological look at the special e...
Power Rangers HyperForce is back with another episode of tabletop role-playing, presented by HyperRPG and Twitch. Not to be outdone by episode two's Halloween adventure, the Time Force recruits aren't done tangling with well-known monsters. In this installment, they ask: Whatever happened to Scorpina? The gold-encrusted supervillainess plagued the nightmares of the Teenagers With Attitude in the early 90s on Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, almost taking them out for good on some occasions, but then she just kinda... stopped showing up.
As we ponder that question and more, the answers may await in the third episode of this new series.
Power Rangers HyperForce streams live every Tuesday at 9PM PT from HyperRPG.
