Pokemon, Power Puff Girls, Digimon, Dexter’s Laboratory, Totally Spies, Scooby Doo, Looney Tunes, Spongebob Squarepants… I could go on and on about all the series I used to watch as a child. My parents used to advice me to ‘unstick’ myself from the TV because my eyes were starting to turn ‘square’.
Almost all of the cartoons and anime I watched as a child have their own movies – animation or/and live action versions – and some of them are making a comeback to bring closure (I’m looking at you, Samurai Jack) or agitate our nostalgia. One of those is Power Rangers. I always enjoyed the story behind it and the characters as well. Growing up though I got tired of the bad guys.
For that reason, this is one of the series that I found intriguing and exaggerated at the same time. Do I dare say that it was as if watching a car crash? No? Maybe?… Anyone?
I’m still looking forward to it. It looks like something I would go to the cinema and watch, even without having known the series to begin with.
