Power Rangers: A Mature Take - Not for Young Kids

Image result for power rangers 2017Before I get started, I want to go on record as saying; this rendition of the Power Rangers is not intended for small children.  This one is for fans of the original series that debuted in the mid 90s - Think Christian Bale's Batman versus Adam West's - two different things.  So if your kid is bugging you and wants to wear his or her costume to the movie - don't do it without screening it first.  Now, on the the review.

Kong Skull Island Movie Review: Kong is More Than King

Image result

Kong: Skull Island is a visual masterpiece.  Now, I'm sure this has been said before with other flicks, but when I think back to the stop motion King Kong movies that were made before my arrival to earth and how far technology has advanced, this movie is a marvel to behold.  It was 2003 (14 years ago) that Hulk raised the bar on placing a CG character into scenes with live actors (Recognizing Jurassic Park as the OG of the bunch).  Fast forward a few years and movies like Transformers and Avatar simply changed the game and challenged viewers to spot the difference between flesh and blood and ones and zeros.  Kong is without a doubt something beyond any of my previous examples.

As of now, Kong is the King.
