So LIFE lost the coin toss to POWER RANGERS tonight, but I really do want to see it.

But anyway, POWER RANGERS: It is essentially Diet IRON MAN, Diet TRANSFORMERS, Diet PACIFIC RIM, and Krispy Kreme.

I found the fx underwhelming. They had a certain TV show quality, and if that's what the filmmakers were going for to pay homage (which doesn't make sense since the source material was composed of stock footage made by a retarded Kaiju film director), then this is an example of what you shouldn't do.

The film was tonally a mismatch between YA, '80s John Hughes (and some of '90s John Hughes), and mockbuster MCU. It seemed to try being like the show when action set in, which didn't mesh well with the character bits.

Digital Domain was the primary vendor, as they were listed first in the credits, but I think Scanline had the most names.

That sounds like a nightmare.

On the other hand, LIFE was an excellent picture.

So yeah, FAST 8. It had a baby that looked so ugly, I wondered if it was CG or just really ugly.
