‘Power Rangers’ Review: Dir. Dean Israelite (2017)

Power Rangers Review: Those teenagers with attitude are back in Dean Israelite’s Power Rangers origin tale.

Power Rangers review by Ben Read, March 2017.

Power Rangers may not be as popular, or highly regarded as its Marvel and DC counterparts in the current superhero landscape. But, as a series that has endured for 24 years, 24 seasons, 2 movies, and enough action figures to fill an entire Toys R Us, it is firmly embedded within pop culture. With both Transformers, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles both receiving the reboot treatment in recent years, it was only a matter of time. Now, Saban and Lionsgate are targeting nostalgic 90’s enthusiasts, with a re-packaged Power Rangers franchise for the 21st century. Is it a Mighty Morphin ‘misfire? Or has Saban captured lightning in a bottle once again?

The plot once again revolves around 5 teenagers with attitude, who are selected to become earths mightiest saviours, by

Vancouver is currently playing host to the studio’s movie adaptation of the beloved superhero series – first hatched by Saban Entertainment in 1993 – where Rj Cyler, Becky G, Ludi Lin, Naomi Scott and Dacre Montgomery are donning those iconic color-coded outfits as the titular teens.

Angel Grove, beckons, and Dean Israelite is the director bringing the Rangers to life. Also on board for the superhero origins tale are Pitch Perfect‘s Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa, the infamous alien villain that develops a seemingly insatiable appetite for intergalactic destruction, and David Denman.

The Power Rangers Movie Has Added An Important Supporting Character

With a new generation of Power Rangers comes a new generation of villains and teammates for audiences of all ages to get acquainted with. In the case of Dacre Montgomery's Jason Scott / Red Ranger, we'll not only get to know him personally during his quest to become one of Earth's greatest heroes, but we'll also get to know the father that helps keep him grounded. THR reported the casting of David Denman, best known for his role as Roy on the U.S. version of The Office, as Sam Scott . Jason's father. In his official character description, Sam is described as "at odds" with Jason's football career, so it can only be imagined how he'd respond once he found out about his son's habit of saving the world. The role comes after we've seen Denman in such films as The Gift and 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. With

David Denman Joins 'Power Rangers' Cast

Another cast member has joined the Power Rangers reboot of the kids action TV series of the same name (or at least of similar name). According to THR, David Denman has signed onto the film.

The outlet explains that Denman's role will be that of Sam Scott, father of Jason Scott -- the red ranger in the group. Sam will reportedly be at odds with Jason on his son's football career. We'll obviously have to wait and see if he'll be an overzealous parent, or one who wants his son to focus more on his schoolwork.

Fans most likely recognize Denman from his recurring role as Roy in the U.S. version of The Office. The actor also recently showed up in Michael Bay's 13 Hours.

Denman will be joining the cast that includes Rj Cyler, Becky G, Ludi Lin, Naomi Scott, Dacre Montgomery, and Elizabeth Banks -- who will

Play over 2,300 Ms-dos games released free on Internet Archive

The Internet Archive has just released one hell of a late Xmas present for pretty much anyone with a working computer. Nearly 2,400 Ms-dos games are now available on the website to be downloaded or played directly from your browser. Everything from the shock-shooter Duke Nukem 3D to nostalgia fuel like Oregon Trail (and everything in between) are now up and running on the web site for the entirely reasonable price of–wait for it–$0! Find them all here.

Being billed as “the Ms-dos project”, this public service was prefaced by an announcement from Jason Scott, the software curator for the project:

I really worked hard to have only fully-functioning programs up, or at least, programs that gave viable, useful feedback. Some of them will still fall over and die, and many of them might be weird to play in a browser window, and of course you can’t really save things off for later,

Play 900 Retro Arcade Games In Your Browser

Got a lot of extra time and a nostalgia for old arcade games? We've got exciting new for you. Thanks to Archive.org (Internet Archive) and emulation software that works through JavaScript, you can now play 900 retro arcade games.

Jason Scott , who combined the Mame and Jsmess projects, had this to say about "The Internet Arcade":

Of the roughly 900 arcade games (yes, nine hundred arcade games) up there, some are in pretty weird shape – vector games are an issue, scaling is broken for some, and some have control mechanisms that are just not going to translate to a keyboard or even a joypad. But damn if so many are good enough. More than good enough. In the right browser, on a speedy machine, it almost feels perfect.

I tested a couple games and it's amazing to see game emulation in a browser and working on so many classic titles.

Timecop remake gets writing duo

Remember Jean-Claude Van Damme’s 1994 epic time travelling action flick Timecop? No? Hey, it wasn’t that bad was it? It was announced last year that a remake was in the works and now Universal have revealed the writing pair behind the new script will be cousins Mark and Brian Gunn. The duo have previously scribed for Journey 2 and are currently working on its sequel. They’ve also been linked with the rumoured remake of 1987 kids horror classic The Monster Squad.

Timecop is based on a comic book from Dark Horse Comics written by Mark Richardson about an enforcement officer in the near future whose job it is to regulate the use of time travel. The original movie (which is actually one of Van Damme’s better offerings) racked in a healthy $100 million worldwide and spawned a sequel starring Jason Scott Lee, but has been on Universal’s remake list

Disney 53: Lilo & Stitch

Directed by Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois

2002/85 minutes

Lilo & Stitch is, in effect, this generation’s Dumbo.

Having lost money on previous films The Emperor’S New Groove and Atlantis: The Lost Empire, CEO Michael Eisner decided their next film would have a much smaller scale, a move inspired by the little pachyderm, and it worked.

Lilo & Stitch was in fact the first animated feature to use watercolour-painted backgrounds since Dumbo and hand-drawn (if computer-coloured) cells. A conscious effort was made to give it a warmer,old-fashioned look, dispensing with the “Deep Canvas” technique used in Tarzan, Atlantis and it’s immediate followup Treasure Planet, and having a minimum number of shots using either a “multiplane” or “3D camera” effect. This decision required a lot of background artists to be trained in the technique.

The lead character, Stitch, had been created some fifteen years earlier by head storyboard artist Chris Sanders

In Seventh Son, Jeff Bridges plays Master Gregory, a gruff knight who has spent centuries protecting the ancient world from malicious supernatural forces.
