The Filmlosophers, Eddie Villanueva and Chad Riley, welcome long time fan and movie enthusiast Marcus Hunter and Sacramento’s own cosplay extraordinaire Trenton Brewer for this week’s review of Power Rangers (2017). The film reboots the prolific children’s television show from the 1990s with a new take on Jason, Billy, Kimberly, Zach and Trini, and how they come to acquire their powers. Featuring Bryan Cranston as Zordon and Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa, the film was directed by Dean Israelite.

The team also discusses the new Thor: Ragnarok trailer, featuring Cate Blanchett as Hela and the makings of a rowdy intergalactic buddy comedy between Chris Hemsworth’s Thor and Mark Ruffalo’s “Planet Hulk” inspired green goliath.
