Power Rangers Lost Galaxy | Review

Power Rangers Lost Galaxy – Magna Defender / Lights of Orion Arc

The hype surrounding Power Rangers Ninja Steel and the upcoming movie reignited my love for the long running series and I decided to re-watch a season at random. I decided to look back at some of my favourite season premieres and Quasar Quest, from Power Rangers Lost Galaxy has always been one of my favourites. Not only is it a fantastic episode of Power Rangers but it is also a great example of children’s television. It is ambitious, and well made.

Similar to the first incarnation of the show, the current series Power Rangers Dino Charge is based on dinosaurs. Dino Charge is significant, not only to Power Rangers itself, but also the superhero institution, due to its casting an African-American actress in the seminal pink ranger role.

Suicide Squad: The Critics Lied...

The critics lied. I do not know what version of Suicide Squad the critics were shown leading up to its release, but the version I saw was not the worst comic book film of all time, nor was it a bad film. Suicide Squad is not a flawless film. It has its fair share of plot holes, underdeveloped supporting characters and elements which could be improved. However, Suicide Squad is ambitious in its approach to the supersaturated comic book fare.
