Recently...blah blah blah
summary of pop culture for me recently
Recently I sat down and watched the Power Ranger's Movie. So let's put this in perspective. When this movie came out, Power Rangers were the best. Burger King had Power Ranger Pogs, and everyone was excited to see this movie. I can remember going to the theater and seeing it with my friends and thinking "wow this is awesome." Well I was dead wrong.
The Power Rangers Movie is horrible. Sub-par acting and horrible special effects is what it all amounts to. Another thing that bugged me was that they changed costumes, I wanted to see them with the old zords. Those new ones looked horribly CGIed. Ivan Ooze looked like a joke when he morphed into the robot bug thing. Stay away from this movie. It doesn't hold up, trust me.
Recently I have noticed that some quality cartoons have been making their way to cartoon network. I find that "the Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack" is not only hilarious visually but the jokes are also great. I think it is one of the most well done cartoons I have seen in probably close to ten years. I am happy that there is finally something worthwhile on television.
I would also like to point out how good the new Star Trek movie was. I am only a casual Star Trek fan, but to me this movie was great. I think everyone should go and see it. I like the updated look, and i think the story worked well. I am also glad Leonard Nimoy appeared, and not just as a small cameo. It was a great movie. I can't wait to buy it on DVD.
I will however suggest against going to see the new X-Men movie, because I doesn't even stay remotely true to the comic books. This is all I have for now, I hope you enjoyed my foray.
