So yeah, here’s a try-out for another Turbo: A Power Rangers movie edit. I’ve opted to remove most of the opening act and open on Alpha detecting that Lerigot has arrived on Earth, and with the Rangers visiting Rocky in the hospital, with his back injury happening off-screen, I feel it gives the movie a more sombre feel. Also included is Bulk and Skull’s only appearance in this entire edit, as I cut out everything to do with their abduction and brainwashing.
A unique novelization of the first episode of Power Rangers Megaforce, with some twists. On his first day of school, Troy Borrows asserts himself, but can he assert himself as the leader of a fresh set of teenagers with attitude as they go toe-to-toe with the Warstar?
Updates will be daily
I’m presently searching for some of my old VHS tapes from the 90s, so far I’ve managed to find a couple of old wrestling PPVs, and an old recording from an Easter holiday weekend edition of British morning strand GMTV (1993-2010). What makes this interesting for us is that the following week saw the ITV debut of V.R Troopers (it was already airing on the SKY services, but this was it’s terrestrial tv premiere), so at the very end of this particular morning they ran a small clip from “The Battle Begins Part One” as a taster of what to expect.
Your host for this kids strand is Simon Parkins. Better ( or lesser) known now as a weatherman for ITV Meridian, but who was a fondly remembered face on CBBC television during the Broom Cupboard years.
I’ve uploaded the Troopers promo, as well as an ad for it from earlier in the strand.
Apologies for the slightly loose-in-synch audio
(password to view edit: power)
-Added Lionsgate card
-Posistioned Zack attacking the Koreans to the beginning of the film. Removed dialogue about Zach joining the Machine Empire as well as the Hip-Hop Kido video. It’s better we hear it referenced by the General rather than seen
-Added lightning storm effects and the MMPR movie logo.
-Significantly shortened the PTSD sequences, “Kimberly” constantly blacking out replaced with lightning storm effects.
-Added Bulk and Skull theme to the scene where Jason is shot to pieces
-Added lightning storm effect to transition from Tommy finding Adam drowned in the tub back to the interrogation scene as this was where the Zach vs Koreans sequence took place and we’ve since moved that to the start
-Added Ron Wasserman’s “I Will Win” to the battle between Tommy and Rocky
