It’s Morphin’ Time!
For my 25th birthday this year, I decided to go to the movies with some of my best friends and watched the one and only Power Rangers! As a 90s kid growing up, Power Rangers is perhaps one of the best thing that could happen to me. I remembered I look forward to every Saturday because Power Rangers will be on TV and I get to watch these superheroes in action.
Enough throwback Thursday talk. Let’s talk about the reboot. The reboot reimagines the characters we all used to know so well. From Jason Scott to Rita Repulsa, the movie retells these characters’ stories. I was first skeptical of the reboot but boy after watching the movie, I fell in love with the new movie. It explains a lot of things that the original series does not. For example, in the original series Rita Repulsa was first to have the green power coin. In the movie, the writers creatively linked this by making Rita Repulsa as the original Green ranger, only to have gone rogue because of her greed for more power.
The entire movie pays tribute to the original series. From Rita Repulsa’s iconic line “Make My Monster Grow” to the romance between Jason and Kimberley that fans have been dying to see, this movie has definitely got many 90s kids to rush to the cinema to relive the movie.
Two more things I would like to point out:
- Dacre Montgomery who plays Jason Scott the Red Power Ranger is from Perth, Australia!
- Amy Jo Johnson and Jason David Frank who played the original Kimberley Hart and Tommy Oliver made a cameo appearance in the movie. What a nostalgic feel!
Final verdict: If you are a 90s kid who grow up with Power Rangers, you definitely do not want to miss this action-packed movie which will lead you too to a down memory lane.
