Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Movie

I can’t even feign excitement on this one, guys.

News broke recently (this morning?) that a new movie version of the beloved kid’s show is coming in July 2016.

Yet again, I am stuck sharing news with you all of a reboot of a thing I did not actually care about when it was originally happening. Why do I keep doing this to myself? Or rather, why does Hollywood keep doing this to me? Why doesn’t Hollywood reboot things I’d like to see? Why aren’t I–a single woman in her 30s who hardly goes to the movies and considers Masterpiece Mystery Must See TV– Hollywood’s target audience? To give Hollywood execs a shot at my hard-earned money, here are some things I’d like to see rebooted/adapted.

  • Ghostwriter
  • A Proud Taste Of Scarlet and Miniver
  • That scene in Little Giants where Devon Sawa is throwing toilet paper into a shopping cart and Becky “Icebox” O’Shea is spying on him and then he pops up in her vision.
  • JONAS, the Jonas Brothers’ TV show, which was very funny
  • Spin the Harry

Listen to me, Hollywood!  I am willing to throw my money at things!!!

What beloved youth-stuff would you guys like to see, or will you all be standing in line with me for all the Fandangos for a quote-along Ghostwriter midnight showing?  “GHOSTWRITER WHAT A TRIP!!!”

  1. We need more high-quality Rom-Coms of the When Harry Met Sally caliber. We’ve only gotten katherine heigl bullshit for too long!

    A couple of years ago, I saw Jason David Frank (the Green Ranger) at a comic book convention. He seemed like an alright guy, and apparently had a decent MMA career following the show. About halfway into panel, the moderator mentioned he was starting a clothing line called “Jesus Didn’t Tap”. I figured that was my cue to leave.

    I can only pray that this is the gritty “Dark Knight”-esque reboot we’ve all been hoping for!

  4. I was into this when I was 6 but have no real recollection of it, except that one kid had the flute thing that one of the rangers had. I really wanted that flute thing.

    My ex was super into power rangers so I’m sure he’s excited. I think I saw him this morning on my way to work but didn’t want to yell out because I was on my bike and covered in sweat. I also realized I can’t remember exactly what he looks like. So yeah, that’s the only person I know who would be excited for it.

    Gotta say, Power Rangers was my favorite show for a while in elementary school. The dorkiest kid in the class made fun of me when I revealed this during a “getting to know each other” exercise on the first day of 3rd grade. BUT GUESS WHAT, DAVID? I DON’T CARE! I ❤ THE GREEN/WHITE RANGER FOREVER.

    The TV show from my childhood that I wish they would bring back though is Space Cases. Loved that rainbow-haired chick who went on to be on Firefly as a grownup.

  7. flanny says:

    Real question: Do you think they’ll change it up in the reboot so that the black, yellow, and white rangers aren’t racistly costumed?

  8. Sota says:

    How about Magic School Bus!? They are doing a re-make version of that I heard!

  9. Wallflower says:

    I want them to bring back You Can’t Do That On Television and Out of Control – with the original cast members.

  10. That’s a really great gif, btw.

    • Mintie says:

      I came just to post that, but you beat me to it.

      Also, I remember when i was growing up in NZ they banned Power Rangers for a short while and all the kids were devastated / confused. I don’t think we were that fond of it even?

    I remember Power Rangers as one of those crossing-the-Rubicon moments when I chose to go outside and play or do anything else besides watching more after-school TV.
