I'm going to begin to write a Power Rangers movie. Though, it will be way!! different then the corny show. It will be scary, dark, action packed and awesome!! Any plotlines that would be good????? Any other info on the rangers that you would like to see in this movie, please inform me.

Thank you for your time.

boys running around in tights and bright costumes are always very scary and dark.

If it's going to be way!! different, then why make it Power Rangers at all? Surely it would make more sense to do an original concept that is scary, dark, action packed and awesome?

If you do it with Power Rangers, than traditional fans won't like the new dark awesomeness, while people that like scary actioners won't even bother watching it due to the Power Rangers connection.

Why not dwell on the latent homo/heterosexual untertones of a team consisting mostly of men, wearing skin-tight suits and becoming 'rigid' to form robots and cars...and of course the thinly disguised orgy that is the super-robot when the whole team combines?

That sounds way(wildly inappropriate use of '!!') wicked-awesome to me! I can't wait to see what 'action' they get.

They should definately have lightsabres. Now THAT would be original and unique.

I'd like to see the park ranger make an appearance in the movie. A woefully underused character, if you ask me.

i'll take all the stuff from the shows and remix them into my own fashion. Though, I will have to have more power ranger things, they will say "its morphin time" and they will have guns.

If you're going for a darker approach, why not make it "Its morphine time" and have them all jack-up, while admiring eachother's manly physiques in the locker room?

Whoa, that sounds dark and awesome. You could make it even darker and awesomener by having them say "it's DARK morphin time!" and then have some heavy metal tune kick in while they do as xcession described.

Or maybe "It's Morph time!", at which point they all turn into small brown plasticine men and fight crime.



I'd buy that for a dollar!

Have them say it with a french flourish, the same way "Dauphin" is pronounced. That would give it way!!!!! amounts of class.

Yes yes, its all good fun but lets get back on track. How much of the plot have you worked out for your PR film?

Hmmm... is this the least bit disturbing to anyone else?



Sounds like a good idea from the dark part, but I seriously think you should get rid of the Power Rangers name. No offense, but IMO Power Rangers are pretty lame.

I agree, if you want a different approach then maybe just "Rangers" would suffice. Losing as much of the campness as possible is good.

Having them say its "its morphin time" is kinda... off...

Anyways if they are going to have guns and the movie is going to be darker... then I would ask the same question Tarn did... Why make it power rangers at all?

My god, this is FXHome at it's best. I haven't laughed this much since way back. Almost got me fired, still walking around with a big grin on my face.

Anyway, Just stopped by to say goodluck with the Power Rangers, that no longer has the Power Rangers title and is darkerer and awsomer then Power Rangers anyway.

And I'd definitely keep the "it's morphin time", I'd do anything to hear that in a dark alley with men in tights.. i mean, alien armor!

Keep us updated
