Jyger’s Favourite 5 – 5 Most Surreal Moments in Power Rangers

So I was thinking recently about surreal moments in Power Rangers. Basically, the moments where your eyes widened and jaw hanged low and you just went “…Did I really just see that?!” Now, of course, this is simply opinion-based, and you’re all free to leave your own list at the bottom. Also, gonna try to keep this limited to one moment per season, otherwise we’d be seeing a LOT of the same people on here over and over…In fact, as it is, there’s still at least one guy involved in more than one of these. lol And finally, as usual, this is not in order of personal preference, though I will be trying to put them in chronological order.

#1 – Kimberly’s Rita Impression in MMPR Season 2: Beauty and the Beast

…Okay, this one I’m gonna show footage of, because it’s just…WOW.

How much fun do you figure Amy Jo Johnson had to be having in this scene? Also, you gotta imagine Barbara Goodson was having a lot of fun watching it.

#2 – The Command Center exploding in MMPR Season 3: Hogday Afternoon

I should note that another MAJOR surreal moment in this season was Master Vile‘s End of the World party, but I opted to go with this one instead, simply for the massive emotional whiplash involved. The Rangers had just been returned to their proper age after spending several episodes as children, the Alien Rangers had just left Earth after defeating their greatest foe, and the Zeo Crystal had been reformed and was going to be used to return the Rangers’ powers. So what ends up happening? Rito and Goldar sneak in, steal the Crystal, and blow up the Command Center, seemingly with Zordon and Alpha inside. So what should’ve been the Rangers’ greatest victory is now their biggest defeat. It wasn’t until the first episode of Power Rangers Zeo that we saw it all get turned around in their favour again, and until then, we were left with the horrific thought of the Power Rangers without power, Zordon and Alpha dead, and Rita and Zedd in prime position to take over the Earth. SHOCKING.

#3 – The Turbo Rangers get baked into a giant pizza in Power Rangers Turbo: Trouble By The Slice

…..Y’know, this entire season, we’ve had Bulk and Skull turned in monkeys, main characters shuffled off with little to no recognition for their earlier endeavors on the show, four fifths of the titular characters swapped out, and now the Rangers get baked into a giant pizza! Now, I still stand by my statement that the Turbo movie was worse than the ensuing season, but the primary reason for it is because it was pretty much the starting point for all this crap. Plus, they weren’t using Sentai footage, so they couldn’t blame any of what happened in it on that…which, by the way, I will concede that this scene DID happen in Carranger, but for the love of crap, there was nothing that said they HAD to use this.

#4 – Every single thing that Lothor did in Power Rangers Ninja Storm

This guy gives me a frakking headache the size of which even Rita Repulsa would think was insane. Between this and the Ninja Storm drinking game (take a shot everytime someone says ‘dude’), it’s a mystery how Ninja Storm didn’t kill people who watched it. Again, I feel the need to point out a major runner-up, the time that Shane rode on Dustin’s back like a skateboard for a double-attack. However, as bizarre as that is, it pales in comparison to the bizarre activities of Lothor, AKA the man who would’ve been the worst villain in PR history if not for the existence of Divatox.

#5 – Tommy kicks a t-rex in the face in Power Rangers Dino Thunder: Day of the Dino

………….Just show it. -_-

No, I will NEVER get over this! Not only does Tommy spin-kick a mother fuckin’ t-rex, but he actually manages to get away with it! If this was Jurassic Park, that t-rex woulda eaten his ass! Seriously, what would the t-rex from that movie say to this one?

“Dude, really? You got pwned by one guy? What, did he have a grenade launcher?…He SPIN-KICKED you in the face?! Okay, unless he was Chuck Norris, I……Oh. JDF…….*sighs* Okay, nevermind…”

Anyway, those were the 5 Most Surreal Moments in Power Rangers. Leave your own list below, and I shall see y’all later! Ja né!

Jyger’s Rant – Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie Review Part 01 (Blip Version)

I FINALLY take another look back on what I consider to be Power Rangers‘ lowest point, Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie.

Title card is by so-shipsahoy. Intro theme is “Heads Up Hearts Down” by I Fight Dragons, and all video and audio clips and images are from Power Rangers, Star Wars, Big Bang Theory, and Super Mario Bros. the Movie. Also, cameos by GracefulWitch, so-shipsahoy, and of course, N. Harmonik.

Jyger’s Rant – Turbo A Power Rangers Movie Review Part 05 + Next Time on Jyger’s Favourite 5

The final chapter of my analysis on this movie, what went wrong, as well as some things I need to say in its VERY small defence, it’s the Turbo Review Part 05!

Intro theme is ‘Roar’ by Treat, as always. Images and clips and whatnot are from Super Sentai, Power Rangers, Metal Gear Solid, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Final Fantasy VII, and Inception.

Finally, coming up in the next episode of my Favourite 5 series, I take a look at the bad girls you love to hate (or for some people, hate to love).

Jyger’s Rant – Turbo A Power Rangers Movie Review Part 04

Get ready for the one scene in this movie that angers me more than anything seen thus far, it’s the Turbo Review Part 04!

Intro theme is ‘Roar’ by Treat as always, though I do wish I had my own theme song. Seems my videos can’t be seen on mobiles or in Germany as a result. Images and clips and whatnot are from Super Sentai, Power Rangers, and Atop The Fourth Wall.

Jyger’s Rant – Turbo A Power Rangers Movie Review Part 03

Here it is, Part 03, and the début of the Illogical Train. Sorry I’m so late.

Intro theme is ‘Roar’ by Treat, as always. Images and clips and whatnot are from Pokémon, Power Rangers, Shadow the Hedgehog, and Command And Conquer Red Alert 3.

Jyger’s Rant – Turbo A Power Rangers Movie Review Part 02 + New Schedule

Well, it’s a touch later than initially planned, but part 02 is finished. Oh, and special thanks to Linkara for allowing me to use a certain joke in this review. You’ll know it when you see it.

Speaking of which, I have decided that from now on, the episodes of Jyger’s Rant will be weekly, every Wednesday. It’s just easier if I keep myself to a schedule, I think. Now there will be stuff in the in-between, but the actual episodes of the primary series will be every Wednesday.

Jyger’s Rant – Turbo A Power Rangers Movie Review Part 01 + HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!

WHOO-HOO!!! First anniversary, baby! FIRST ANNIVERSARY! And because on anniversaries we’re allowed to do whatever we want, I have begun my Turbo review by talking about the backstory leading up to it which, as you’ll see in later instalments of this review, will in turn lead into some of the biggest plot holes you’ve EVER seen. I know, most people would consider this a prologue or intro, but I’m just different like that.

So yeah, one year…Wow. Doesn’t feel like it. Although maybe that’s because for a long while I kinda forgot about it, which I regret A LOT. I wish that I could go back and fill that time with content, but I can’t. Instead, I can only hope to not make that mistake again.

…Yes, that’s right. I have ultimately made my decision regarding a question I’ve been asking myself for weeks, and the answer is yes, I am sticking around. For how long? Well, I don’t really know yet. I guess for as long as I can do this without it getting TOO awful. lol

That said, I need to give some big thanks to my friends and family who have helped me through all this and encouraged me to keep at it. I have a need to thank JewWario and Linkara for being huge inspirations and for giving me encouragement when I most needed it. I have a need to thank my girlfriend PinkRangerWannabe and my occasional co-star N. Harmonik for sticking with me and giving me their support. Most of all, I have a need to thank each and every one of you that have checked me out over the past year, because it’s all been SO worth everything negative that ever occurred. So thank you all for making this a great year, and let’s hope to make the year to come even greater.

Welcome to Jyger’s Rant.

Jyger’s Rant – April Trailer

Just a short trailer for my plans for April…kinda.

I’ve been planning to do a review a review of Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie for a while now, and even though the future after that for my blog and videos is up in the air, I WILL do this review if nothing else. Also, try to see if you can catch every one of the little messages in the video. And yes, the text for most of the video is straight from Kingdom Hearts. Been chomping at the bit to use this font for a while now.
