Posted: May 18, 2017 at 6:44 pm   /   Movie Reviews

Posted: March 23, 2017 at 5:00 pm   /   Movie Reviews

The Power Rangers were once a big part of my life growing up. In a house of three boys in the ’90s, it was pretty much a given. While I have since fallen out of the world, it’s impossible to ignore that the Power Rangers franchise has maintained a massive fan base through several seasons […]
