Since 1993, Saban has dazzled children and parents alike with the exploits of the spandex-clad heroes of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and their many, many offshoots which have stretched their reign of dominance over toy aisles and screens across the entertainment landscape. But, for almost as long, we've heard murmurs of discontent about the state of the company that largely shepherded this beloved franchise to prominence. We've often wondered what it was that made this show tick behind the scenes, and why certain creative decisions may have been made in the last few years, which saw a sharp decline in audience reception, ironically a short time after the newly-christened Saban Brands retook the Power Rangers intellectual property from temporary rights-holders Disney. That was 2010. S...

Emergency! POWER RANGERS’ Chris Violette Returns to STAR TREK: DISCOVERY

Power Rangers fans who tuned into the premiere episode of the new Star Trek: Discovery got a surprise late last year when one of their own from the spandex-sheathed superhero saga appeared aboard the bridge of the USS Shenzhou as a Starfleet Officer. Chris Violette, known best to many of us here at Henshin Justice Unlimited as Blue Ranger Sky Tate from Power Rangers SPD, had a guest-starring role on the 2017 space opera, as an officer in the star-spanning United Federation of Planets. Not the biggest leap from his job aboard SPD, where he was also a man in uniform, fighting to protect the innocent from the weird and wondrous alien threats of the future. We hoped we might see Violette again on Discovery, but after the events of its two-part opener, many believed we had closed the book on ...

At long last, he arrives. Ever since the Godzilla franchise branched out, sending the atomic lizard on a rampage through the landscape of animation with Toho Studios' new anime film trilogy, international kaiju fans have wondered when they were going to get a chance to see his first outing, Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters for themselves. Now, thanks to the fine folks at Netflix, the Polygon Pictures 3D animated feature makes its way to our screens this January. And here's a nifty new trailer to prove it. https://youtu.be/B-3do2pM4pM Oh my. I think I need a moment. Be right back, rewatching at max volume till my ears bleed. Okay, I'm back. Looks like the film was in good hands with directing duo Shizuno Kobun and Seshita Hiroyuki, along with writer Urobuchi Gen of the tokusat...

Wedding bells are ringing for the dump truck-driving psychic superhero Nakamura Chise, as the actress announces this week that she has tied the knot. Nakamura starred as Natsuki aka BoukenYellow from the 2006 tokusatsu series GoGo Sentai Boukenger, where her quirky character stumbled into rescuing her teammates through many a strange and daunting adventure. Now, Nakamura embarks on her own kind of real-life adventure with her new beau, a non-industry man. Word of the happy couple's recent nuptials came from Nakamura's personal blog, and the date they signed for the official family register has special significance. She and her husband-to-be originally found each other on a poker game app, and later met in person. Their January 1 registry date serves as a bit of an in-joke representing...
