Power Rangers

It’s an origin story and you all know how much I love superhero origin stories (I don’t). In this case, since it’s a story we haven’t seen properly told before, I gave it a pass for that, but it did fall into the superhero origin trap of holding off on all superhero action until the final act and thus, “Power Rangers” becomes more along of the lines of “Five Teenagers Bonding Featuring a Cameo by the Power Rangers.” It’s so frustrating that these movies do that to us so much.

Kong: Skull Island

‘Kong: Skull Island’ knows where its strengths are and makes no attempt to sell itself as anything different than what it is. This movie is about monsters, monsters fighting, and mayhem and, brother, it delivers on that.
