The first blockbuster film to feature LGBTQ & autistic superheroes
Half way through the week & it’s #WednesdayWisdom
And after watching this movie, I had no doubt that it deserved the feature.
“A group of high-school students, who are infused with unique superpowers,harness their abilities in order to save the world.”
This year has dished out two surprising & EPIC movies for me. Logan & Power Rangers 2017.
Both blew my mind in that it surpassed my wildest expectations or rather superseded any that I had going in. I LOVE LOVED them so much, I can’t contain my inner fan boy.
Both took previous franchise lore & movies then turned them upside down in a total reboot that was sincere, deep & emotional in unexpected ways.
Logan has become my All time favorite Marvel Movie so far & Power Rangers is my favorite movie of the year so far. What a brilliant combo.
This is a REBOOT. A completely new story, just like director said. This is the first movie in a new superhero franchise, and it needs to have a focus on the story and its characters, not on battles and morphing sequences. It’s made for everybody except kids, because it’s dark and much more serious than the TV show which was made mostly for kids. We have five teenagers and each of them has his own issues he needs to solve himself in order to become a hero (Power Ranger) and save the world. Every next situation in the movie makes our heroes closer to each other and stronger as a team.
I personally enjoyed watching this movie because it is dark, amazing, emotional, funny(of course not that much like the TV show), and has AWESOME introduction to the whole story and its main characters. I can only imagine what’s planned for the sequel. CAN’T WAIT FOR THAT!!! #GO #GO #POWER #RANGERS
What my best bro enjoyed in this movie had that previous incarnations did not have:
- That even though they were chosen, it was never expected that they would be so young/teenagers
- They don’t automatically know martial arts and have to train to become power rangers
- More focus placed on lesser known characters like the yellow, blue & black rangers
My women crush wednesday has got to be Becky G!
Aka Trinity – The Yellow Ranger
In the movie her character is super feisty, does heavy metal yoga on a mountain top! & even takes on Rita Repulsa solo without caving in!
She’s got a very different body type than the social norm of “hotness” which I crush so much.
She also plays a character who is questioning her sexual orientation.
The movie is very character driven, which was the most surprising for me because in others like spiderman, the origin story can get very boring. But they melded it quite awesomely in this rendition.
My favorite change has Got to be that they have powers Outside of the suits!
They have super strength & super endurance. Which means things like climbing up mountains with their bare hands & jumping across vast ledges make for an entertaining watch. Heck it’s what I would do if I had those powers.
There are such deep & touching moments involving each character that I’m sure many of us can relate to. Like the kid who gets picked on in school, the once popular now reject over a bad decision/s, the kid who has to take care of a sick family member on their own, the misunderstood antisocial one who is struggling with inner demons and coming to terms with who they were always meant to be. Geez, it tugs at your heart strings and makes you want to give each of em a hug and say “I can totally understand what you’re going through.” You watch it hoping that their journey will help inspire you with yours.
Their struggle to become a TRUE team is what really galvanizes the storyline of the movie. And by the time you see the above scene…TOTAL goosebumps #nerdgasm

My fandom stretches way way WAY back, it was honestly one of the most exciting times of my childhood. I was all about Power Rangers back then and it’s stuck with me through all this passage of time.
Personal Movie Rating: 10/10!
It’s a bold statement I know but one of the best things about a “personal” rating is that the decision is mine alone lol & I wholeheartedly believe in this AMAZING movie. Here’s a small background
into any of my “qualifications” you might need to see to believe this rating.
