5 Things I Liked in Power Rangers Ninja Steel


Ninja Steel is not a very good incarnation of Power Rangers.

But, ranting is easy, I'd rather look at the positives and list 5 things I like about Ninja Steel. (My opinion.) Click "read more".

TMNT Talk: Should Venus ever return?


Missing since 1997

A lesser known incarnation of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is its 1997 life action series called Ninja Turtles The Next Mutation. Lasting only 1 season, the show never took off in ratings or fans and is mostly forgotten aside from a crossover with the Power Rangers In Space. However, what stood out the most about this adaptation was the inclusion of a 5th female turtle named Mei Pieh Chi or Venus for short who has not been used since the shows cancelation besides a few comic cameos. Now, I know Venus most likely will never make a full return because of marketing and lack of interest, but should she? Click "read more" for my take.

Ghost Ranger - 5 Games I wish I liked

I already talked about unpopular opinions, but this one is a bit different. There have been times when I come across a video game that seems really good but I just cannot get into. But, it is different than simply being a game that does not appeal to me, they are games that seem like they should appeal to me and I get impressed with, but for whatever reason I just never feel like playing even though they sound great.

Power Rangers Fan Theory - The SPD A Squad Ranger Suits and Sky's Dad's Red Ranger Suit Explained


Easily one of the most infamous moments in Power Rangers history took place during the Disney era season Power Rangers SPD. The blue ranger Sky was the son of the "best of the best" Red Rangers who died in action when he was a kid and his suit looks exactly like the Time Force Red Ranger with an SPD badge. Also, the main cast was the B-Squad, second team, while the A-Squad was MIA and their suits re-used the In Space helmets. This was al due to the strict budget that Disney put on the producer in a position where he was not permitted to create new outfits and had to make due with old props. But, while the show never acknowledged the similarities, what if there was an in-universe reason for their designs? Click "read more" for my theory.

Green Phoenix - Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban Review

Prisoner of azkaban UK poster.jpg

Over the passed year, I have periodically reviewed different entries in the Harry Potter film franchise. Based on the bestselling book series by J.K. Rowling (who shall from this moment be referred to only as "The Author" for reasons that should fairly obvious for anyone not living under a rock), the seven Harry Potter books and the associated eight films had an indelible impact upon my childhood.

I know that I have discussed this relationship in reviews of earlier films, but I felt it was very important to restate the connection when introducing today's movie; the third entry in the Harry Potter film series, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. The film widely regarded by many as the best single film in the franchise and one that I think could easily take the claim as the most popular, Prisoner of Azkaban stands out as a transitional film within the franchise, fully transforming the series from the lighthearted self-contained children's films of the Chris Columbus era into the mature and multi-arced works of the later films.

But does the film truly deserve its status as one of the best entries in the series? Does it still hold up over 15 years after its release? And does it overcome the issues that I noted plagued earlier entries in the film franchise?
