The Russell Review: Power Rangers

The Russell Review: Power Rangers

Minor Spoilers Ahead: You’ve been Warned! It was difficult to watch Power Rangers without feeling like I was 6 years old again. I haven’t felt nostalgia and childlike wonder in the theater like this in quite some time. The Power Rangers were a big part of my after-school ritual for years, and knowing that a big budget version of the costumed “teenagers with attitude” was coming to theaters got me more excited than I expected. While it’s not a revolutionary movie, Power Rangers is arguably the best children’s show movie…

The Russell Review: Kong: Skull Island

Minor Spoilers Ahead: You’ve Been Warned! Few movie monsters are as iconic as King Kong. Originally introduced in 1933, this gigantic ape has been a mainstay in Hollywood cinema, popping up in some sort of reboot or remake every couple of decades.

One of the most interesting changes is the setting. While essentially every King Kong movie so…

The Russell Review: Logan

Minor spoilers ahead. Consider yourself warned! Having been a comic book and superhero fan my whole life, I have always been invested in the “X-Men” franchise, through the good (X2, Days of Future Past) and the bad (I’m looking at you X3 and X-Men Origins: Wolverine). One of the consistencies through the whole series, however, has been Hugh Jackman’s performance as Logan, the Wolverine. Knowing that Logan was his last performance, I already went into the movie with a flood of emotions. I must say, those emotions didn’t stop through…
