Power Rangers

Happy 20th Anniversary, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers! – IGN.

So, the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers turn 20 today, while MLK’s speech turns 50. Coincidence? Yes. Definitely a coincidence.

But, while many admire (rightly so) the speech of MLK, others will relive and remember afternoon school days sitting in front of the TV watching the Power Rangers.

Now, I must admit that I never actually got into the show. Sure, I watched a few episodes when the channel would come in (this was when satellites were as big as cars and when our home TV got about 6 channel’s, sometimes 7-8 when we hit the top of it!) At any rate, it was a show much loved by many and still going strong in some ways into our present day. In fact, I remember being in 5th grade and hearing a guy say that he couldn’t wait to get home so he could see the big reveal of the Green Ranger. He apparently set things up to be a car-rider that day so he didn’t have to wait so long on the bus! I was all like, “whatever dude, I’m watching Tale Spin when I get home.” He was not amused!

Beyond that, my cousin was totally in love with the Power Rangers and when I visited him we would always play a SNES (I’m pretty sure it was Super Nintendo) Power Rangers game. Admittedly, it was quiet fun.

So, that’s my experience with the Power Rangers. Undoubtedly many others will have different experiences, especially if they were/are big fans. So, if your interested, click the link above. There is some great content related to the Power Rangers, along with 4-5 video clips.

Enjoy!

The Last of the MohicansLast of the Mohicans Series in the Works from FX – IGN.

This is going to be fantastic!!!

I have loved the film ever since I saw it in theaters, though I was only 8 years old at the time.

I fondly remember my aunts and cousin talking the movie up to me, trying to persuade me that it was filmed in North Carolina and it would be a real treat to go see. I just remember thinking that it was about Indians, the English, and some great fight scenes in the woods. For a kid who pretended being a warrior fighter decimating the fake ranks of enemies as they stormed my barn-fort at the time, I was all like “sure, let’s go see it.”

 A really neat part is that a majority of it was filmed in my home state of North Carolina, with many scenes filmed at a lake not 30-45 minutes from the Home Place where I grew up.

Here’s to hoping that the Series in the works is good. Notably, this seems to be a new trend among Hollywood, in which historical stories are getting dramatic makeovers and documentary-esque shows are becoming full fledged movies. I am thinking specifically of “The Vikings” from the History channel, as well as other shows like Spartacus, John Adams, and some others listed in the link above.

Good television is hard to come by sometimes, but these shows are quality works. I’m looking forward to seeing how this will turn out!

Pixar MoviesPixar’s Movies: Worst to Best – IGN.

I came across this link as I was surfing the web tonight.

It was fun and nostalgic to read the bio’s and critiques of these movies and look at how they were rated. I had some agreements and other disagreements, but one notable “yikes” came when I saw Wall-E at #2. I mean, seriously: number 2! I get that the movie had a good story but it was rather bland and left something to be desired. Yet to each his own, I suppose (sigh).

I think #1 is spot on, but I won’t tell so as not to spoil the ultimate surprise. Let’s just say that it was a timeless coming-of-age experience which Pixar captured and delivered to viewers everywhere, helping them understand that growing up doesn’t always mean that you ever quit being a child at heart. That may give it away to some, but you’ll have to read the story to find out.

Enjoy a walk down movie lane and reminisce about all those great movies and the experiences and memories you share!

E3 2013: Day One Wrap Up – IGN.

So, here’s the wrap up for yesterday at the E3 Conference. A lot of great games, strong developers, excellent looking game engines (Frostbite 3) and, of course, tantalizing game footage.

I think its safe to assume that we are at a golden age of gaming, though perhaps everyone always thinks that when next-gen happens. But, I still aim to enjoy my 360 and now I have to strong looking competitors from XBOX One and PS4!!!

The games look fantastic and the chance to play these with friends, old and new, is as strong a motivating factor as ever. I love being a part of the gaming community. Here’s just hoping that I can keep up. Man, my gaming back log is too crowded. Thanks God its summer!

Here’s to the rest of E3 being consistently great. Looking forward to more info both from IGN and Game Informer.
