Power Rangers: It’s so bad, it’s good

I grew up watching Power Rangers on TV. I super liked it that when the Power Rangers became a movie, you bet your boots I watched it. It was such a cult classic during the 90s.

Well as you now know, it recently had a movie remake.


I had no intention of watching it truth be told. Never even saw a preview of the new one nor did I bother to search for one. I don’t know. But something told me it was a movie I could afford to miss on the big screen. However I recently found myself trooping to the cinema to watch it because my friends wanted to watch it.

Before going to the movies, I had expectations from this film.

  1. Movie effects that will have me going “Wow. That was awesome”.  The Power Rangers movie I remember from my childhood was action packed and yes, had great movie effects – great by definition of that decade. Considering we now live in a world run by technology, I expected this film to give me that blow me away with its effects. I mean just check out those newly redesigned Power Rangers costumes vis a vis the old ones.

Cool costumes right? And very modern. Unfortunately, the wow stops at the costume      design.

2. A lot of action. Sadly, this does not have much of that. It was a lot of talk, talk, talk and more talk. The fight scene was supposed to be the highlight of this movie. But that was a real let down.

3. A story that would at least give justice to the original movie if not surpass it. When you attempt to remake any cult classic film, for me it should at the very least give justice to the original one if not make it even better. Aside from the brief nostalgia the film gave me when I heard the words “It’s morphine time!” uttered and the Power Rangers theme song played, Saban’s Power Rangers did not at all live up to the original.

I would give credit to RJ Cyler who played the Blue Ranger. He was funny though at times he bordered on annoying.

They could have given the villain a better storyline. There was a part in the movie when the rangers were shown what the future with Rita Repulsa and Goldar that it looked like it was going to be a scary future for Angel Grove. In reality though, Rita was just plain tiresome as a villain.

And I think this movie centered too much on how the teens were going to morph. It became dragging.

Actually my whole impression of this movie is that it was trying hard. It probably wanted to marry the campy feels of the TV series with the action packed story of the blockbuster movie. They should have picked one and stuck to it. Maybe it would have been a better film.

This movie gave us somethings to laugh about – both because there were scenes that were amusing and also because the story was just so bad. Perhaps some could be blamed from a bad editing job.

Oh and can somebody confirm whether Krispy Kreme paid for product placement in this movie or not? I have a strong feeling they did because they got quite a lot of exposure from this film. Philippine movies could learn a thing or two from Krispy Kreme. That’s how you do a product placement people!

If you’re thinking of watching this, go right ahead. Like I said, you’ll get a few laughs. Also a superhero film is a good family movie. Your kids will enjoy for sure. But if you’re a hardcore Power Rangers fan looking to be re-live the awesome feeling you felt when you saw the original one, I say save your money and wait for it on popular video streaming sites like NetFlix or on DVD.










Hey Sugar Waxing Salon National Hair Free Day

Like most women, waxing is already a familiar concept to you and it may not be an appealing thing for you to do. Still, waxing is a standard part for a lot of women’s grooming routine; and they will book a session, show up for their appointment, go through the whole (seemingly) painful procedure, and emerge smooth and hair-free, without batting an eyelid.
Why do they go through it all? Waxing contrary to popular belief is not as excruciating as one might assume – just a matter of choosing the right waxing salon to go to. A reputable salon will take you through the process without causing anxiety – whether you’re a waxing virgin or have been doing it for years. They should be able to demonstrate why there’s no need to feel self-conscious and assure you that you’re in the hands of experts. The process is swift, and the aestheticians are trained to work in small, manageable sections and press on the skin as the wax is removed to help ease discomfort. After that, you’re ready to go. It’s all quite simple and straightforward.
Ready to take the plunge? No better time to go than April 3rd when Hey Sugar!, the country’s premiere all-natural waxing destination, celebrates National Hair Free Day.
For the occasion, you can visit any Hey Sugar branch between 10:00 am – 1:00 pm and you can get free underarm waxing and eyebrow threading for free.

Living in a tropical country like the Philippines has its pros and cons. On one hand, it’s year-round sun and fun; on the other, maintaining your body for year-round sunning and funning can be exhausting.

Given that you have the option to wear shorts and go to the beach or pool any time of the year, one should always have skin that’s smooth, no matter what season. This can easily be done by scheduling an appointment at your nearest waxing salon.

For Hey Sugar! Waxing Salon, it’s as much about giving clients what they need while making sure that they allow them to feel fabulous about themselves as well.

Hey Sugar makes all-natural and 100 % Sugar grooming options accessible to clients of all shapes and sizes. They use 100% naturally hypoallergenic sugar wax that minimizes side effects such as allergic reactions and chemical irritations caused by traditional wax—a gentler but no less effective way to keep your skin smooth and hair-free.

Hey Sugar!’s interiors are renowned for being warm, inviting and discreet. Clients can walk in and expect a clean and sterilized environment ideal for the sensitive beauty routines that they are about to undergo, while still feel like they are about to get pampered and taken care of.


And best of all, they can rest easy knowing they are in the hands of expert aestheticians who were trained to deliver only the best results. For newbies, this means you can easily ask your aesthetician any question about the process and advantages of sugar waxing and get a clear answer; for veterans, you know you will walk out of your appointment knowing there’s no other destination that can give you the same results using all-organic hair-removal methods.

“We strive to bring reliable and fast services, but also connect with our customers—it’s a very personal grooming procedure, after all, and we are dedicated to making customers happy and comfortable. Clients expect quality service, superior treatments and affordable prices but not at the expense of a warm and comfortable environment—and that’s exactly what we have waiting for them here,” explains Arvin A.
