Movie Review: Power Rangers (2017)

Is there a specific name or term for a production that compiles stock action scenes from a foreign property and rewrites the context by filling in the gaps with a domestic production? Because between old distribution of kaiju films and the 24 year old series in question, a one-word description would be quite helpful. “Clip…

Movie Review: Ratchet & Clank (2016)

Ratchet & Clank. Another more than appropriate film title — well, at least the “Clank” part.

Loosely based off of a Marvel comic miniseries of the same name, the family friendly pic revolves around an inflatable healthcare…
