The miraculous rebirth of the Pacific Rim franchise, after a less-than-stellar box office for Guillermo Del Toro's original monster mash left fans in a period of doubt, now revives the speculation about what might happen if the city-stomping Kaiju and their mechanized Jaeger nemeses would ever meet up with the denizens of Legendary Pictures' new MonsterVerse. Namely the atomic lizard Godzilla and his furry frenemy of Kong: Skull Island fame. Well, now, we may finally have an answer to those oft-posed questions. Sort of. The second in what is hoped to be an ongoing series, Pacific Rim: Uprising returns us to the world saved by the pilots of giant robot Gipsy Danger, now focusing on new lead John Boyega, who commands the newly redesigned Gipsy Avenger for more creature carnage.

Here's a thing. In a grim future, where humanity is at the edge of extinction (because what other futures are there, really?), five brothers set about changing their unenviable fate and a giant robot is born from the ashes of their effort. Thus is the plot of Brave Storm, the reimagined tokusatsu film that merges the mythologies of two special effects drama series, Silver Kamen and Super Robot Red Baron. Still with me? Because I have names and titles, some of which may be of interest to fans of the Kamen Rider and Ultraman franchises. This movie has some deep cuts in the world of toku. Leading the cast is a notable line-up of tokusatsu actors, including Watanabe Shu (Eiji, Kamen Rider OOO) and Yamamoto Chihiro (Laiha, Ultraman Geed). Watanabe is seen in the trailer piloting what looks...

Let the rubber bodies hit the floor, with this sickass trailer for the all-new Kamen Rider Heisei Generations FINAL: Build & Ex-Aid with Legend Riders. This winter Kamen Rider film brings together a host of legends from the franchise's recent history, including Kamen Rider Build, Kamen Rider Ex-Aid, Kamen Rider Gaim, Kamen Rider Fourze, and more. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y1CbwR8RMzg Now, I know this is a movie, but I didn't expect this trailer to make it look so much like a movie! There's a highly cinematic quality to the editing style chosen for this presentation that I am completely okay with. Of course, we know that it's still going to be the usual "really expensive TV episode" flavor that pervades the whole event in actuality, but I love the degree of serious prestig...
Justice League Comic vs Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Comic: Who Won The Week?

Justice League Comic vs Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Comic: Who Won The Week?

This week, I read a fun comic book packed with everything I wanted out of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, from exciting action to cool character moments, and an interesting peek into new corners of the universe sure to keep me coming back for more. And then I read the Justice League crossover. To say that these two titles, each with our color-coded Teenagers With Attitude in common, are on opposite ends of the fun spectrum for me would be an understatement. The title of this review suggests a decision must be made about which of the two comic stories rose up to take the crown for this week's best. But let's be honest. Though Justice League / Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #6 has its fans, sending it into the ring with Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #19 is a TKO waiting to happen. With sticks o...
