Peter Parker: the Spectacular SPIDER-MAN – Marvel

I went into Power Rangers not expecting very much.
I’d pretty much written it off in my mind, and had decided that if it gave me a nice nostalgia bomb I was going to be happy with it. After all, any chance to harken back to the days of old where I would run around my back yard wielding palm fronds battling Lord Zed should be taken. This was a terrible mistake, I admit it, I was wrong.
Power Rangers was great.
It managed to blend humor and action in ways that made me laugh even as I leaned forward, literally on the edge of my reclining movie chair. The acting was off the chain, and there was genuine character development- in a POWER RANGERS movie!
I honestly wasn’t sure how I would feel about this one, but I have to admit, the all new “Power Rangers” movie is surprisingly good! Is it the best movie of the year? No, not by a long shot, but I never expected to be emotionally invested in the remake of a cheesy 90’s TV show that I haven’t watched since I was a kid.
Back in the day, “The Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers” had a very specific niche, and while the new one is definitely geared towards a younger audience, it also appeals to adults in the same way Marvel and Pixar movies do. It’s kind of like the difference between the new “Star Trek” movies and the original series from the 60’s.
That’s not to say that the new Power Rangers film is without it’s fair amount of cheese, because seriously, I hope you’re not lactose intolerant. Despite the over the top fan service at times, the movie really delivers a (relatively) grounded take on the uh.. “mythos”.

*Event could run past 12AM depending on interest.
“Logan” is the latest installment in the X-Men movie series and (supposedly) Hugh Jackman’s last outing as the Wolverine.
Per usual, Jackman completely delivers as Logan. Patrick Stewart returns as an elderly Professor Xavier in a very different type of role. And newcomer Dafne Keen steals the show as “Laura” (X-23), a young girl that Logan must protect from a group of anti-mutant mercenaries known as The Reavers.
Although the story is inspired by the Mark Millar’s “Old Man Logan”, this movie takes the dark and disturbing tone of that tale, and goes in a completely different direction with it. Whereas “The Wolverine” felt like a samurai movie, “Logan” is a post-apocalyptic western.
Director James Mangold (“The Wolverine”) returns – this time however, with the R rating, he’s finally able to show a gritty and unleashed Wolverine going berserk on some faceless goons. As much as I love the last one (“The Wolverine” – the one where he’s in Japan, not to be confused with “X-Men: Origins”) this movie proves that Wolverine movies should’ve been rated R from the get go.
It’s really good, but it does leave you with some questions…
