That's pretty much what I expected from day 1. None of the reviews, positive or negative, surprise me. If this is at least a C+ movie then it will have met my expectations. This seems like one of those.
I'm still going to see it. Sometimes the middling maze runner bullshit is just the kind of cheese I'm in the mood for. I've been known to like a guilty pleasure movie from time to time.
If it gets a sequel, they should get the team behind Kong to do it. That's a movie that knew how to have fun.
Recently there was a commercial for this showing a scene where they yell at Billy for making the Megazord dance, hopefully the movie doesn't spend an inordinate amount of time making the black guy the stereotypical comic relief.
That bothered me a little. I'd easily expect Zack to pull something like that, but Billy? Does hip hop kido have to follow the black guy, or what? Can't Zack be Zack and Billy be Billy? What's the point of avoiding the stereotyped ranger colors if they're just going to turn Billy into Zack because he's black? Leave the dancing to Zack!
But I havent brought it up before now because I havent seen the movie and without knowing the context of the character or the scene, I really can't form a solid opinion about it yet. That was my initial reaction, though.
Well it seems they made Billy less of a stereotypical 80s/90s nerd and more of a modern nerd. Smart kid interested in different shit. Now the whole bit about him dancing, idk, but hopefully Zack is still comedy
There's a scene in which Kimberly Hart (Naomi Scott), a.k.a. ”the Pink Ranger," admits that she distributed revenge porn to humiliate a classmate, and now she feels she's an awful person. Not long after this, there's campy dialogue about ”stopping Rita Repulsa from getting to the Krispy Kreme.
