My Favoritism For Kimberly Also Caused My Dislike For Power Rangers

Image
I had a couple of thoughts of how a character created by a certain franchise or company would make me dislike the company in the long run. It's just like how I used to like Marvel but the way the new staff involved dealt with my favorite heroes and villains got me not to get updated on it. The way Capcom is dealing with games I grew up with is making me hate them. The same goes for why I don't like Power Rangers. My issues with Power Rangers revolves around how things get implemented for the worse in several cases such as rushed plots, the two season split, the Disney era and I could talk about one particular character: KIMBERLY. Yes her.
I could remember that no matter how much I watch Zyuranger that I'll always like Kimberly better than Mei. I thought about how Mighty Morphin's treatment of her would just make me say WTF is wrong with them? She went from a character who could hold on her own to becoming more and more of Tommy's damsel in distress. I guess Amy Jo…

Ninja Steel Ain't Sharp Enough To Make The Cut?

Image
Here's what I feel and personally, I don't think I should be surprised with how Power Rangers Ninja Steel itself really fails big time. While I do acknowledge the contracts between Toei and Saban but I guess the franchise has been shooting itself at the foot way too many times. It's really had me thinking about it that the project may no longer be as feasible as it used to because of bad marketing decisions such as the summer break which only delays revenues. So what's the point? I hope I can make this as objective as possible with pointing what's wrong with Ninja Steel.

Don't even get me started on how Victor and Monty with how that they really that useless to the show. They're even way more stupid than the father of both Takaharu and Fuuka. At least the father of the Igasaki siblings contributes to the plot while the other two only serve to derail it. This is really proof Judd Lynn has burned himself out beyond belief. I've even heard that Judd Lynn …

My Thoughts On Power Rangers' Really Bad Drop In Its Ratings

Image
Power Rangers has now sunk to a whole new level of low. Should I even be surprised? Power Rangers has really SHOT ITSELF at the foot too many times and that's why I usually don't regret not watching it.

Here's what Power Rangers Now has to say and I'm not surprised with every word that I copied/pasted from the same article:

The classic saying above rings true in many aspects of life, but perhaps no truer than when thinking of Saban Brands, who has continued to trot out the same, consistent Power Rangers product year after year despite blatant warning signs on the horizon.

Year after year, Saban Brands continues to produce a Power Rangers TV show that disappoints fans in quality. Year after year, Nickelodeon continues to elect for a summer hiatus that causes an annual viewership drop that’s proven unrecoverable. Year after year, Saban Brands continues to remain unwilling or unable to prevent international territories from airing new episodes months in advance, unleashing…

Was Alex Originally Intended To Be The Morally Ambigious "Main Villain" Of Time Force?

Image
The scenes when Alex returned in Power Rangers Time Force almost suggested that he could have been the "main villain" of Time Force. In what way? I thought of the following plot that could have been written but was thrown out of the window by executives. It's possible that Alex himself may have allowed Ransik to escape, feigned his death (or he did die but knew he'd eventually come back to life if Ransik escaped to the past) and decided to run the show himself. Maybe he was meant to be Power Rangers' version of Captain Ryuuya as a manipulative bastard.


Okay, I'm just speculating but I think this is what was intended for Alex in Time Force. Alex shows back into the present and has seen the possibility of two futures: one where he'll die in both futures. One may involve Frax getting destroyed by his own creation Dragontron or one where Doomtron is forced to go haywire. How Lucas reacted here is almost a hint that maybe, just maybe we'll get a scene whe…

What If Trakeena Were In Power Rangers In Space Instead Of Power Rangers Lost Galaxy?

Image
I gave a thought on what if Trakeena were a Power Rangers in Space villain instead of the would-be main antagonist of Lost Galaxy. I imagined what impact it would have on the story with the United Alliance of Evil. What if they ended up a threatening force to deal with who's going to be called as Trakeena the terrible. She would probably arrive midseason when Astronema keeps failing at the Dark Specter's request. But this isn't exactly going to come as good. Maybe she would have some dark past trying to get rid of the Dark Specter for her own personal purposes.

I could imagine her arriving as a midseason villain. Maybe we'd see her disguising as some attractive woman (which she did in Lost Galaxy and Ahames did in Changeman) and maybe injure one of the rangers. She may start her own little campaign and she would create the Psycho Rangers. She would probably have the Barilian Bug as her first few monsters. Carlos would probably fall victim and she would probably show h…

I Watched Beauty And The Beast 2017 Version And I Can't Like This Blockbuster As Much As The Original

Image
As a person, I want to be critical about everything. I was excited to hear that a Beauty and the Beast remake was about to take place. It was going to be a success but I thought about my personal preference. You may want to grill me for this entry but I'm going to write it out anyway. So what's my thoughts? There were some improvements with the plot from the 1991 version for the 2017 version. It's like how Belle was seen to be an inventor herself or that the movie has a different interpretation of Gaston to avoid copying too much from the original.
I thought about Emma Watson as Belle. I dunno is it me or does she lack the charm of the original aside from my stupid reason that Watson is nowhere near as hot as the cartoon character. I could talk about how Belle's character showed her as someone who's passing her knowledge. I think I couldn't accept Watson's lack of charm. There was something about Belle that made her more balanced in the original animation …
