This is not the Power Rangers from your childhood. Actually, it's pretty NSFW.

I'm a huge fan of taking the old comic books and cartoons from our childhood and making them dark and gritty in a more contemporary setting. But this video from director Joseph Khan does a pretty good job spoofing that concept with this overly gritty and way dark reboot (or in this case, "bootleg") of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. The idea that everything needs to be turned dark and gritty maybe growing old in some people's minds I guess. Starring James Van Der Beek and Katee Sackhoff (a.k.a. "Starbuck"), this 15 minute short film might be a spoof, but I'd probably still pay to see a feature length version of it. Enjoy. 

Dale Goldberg

Yes, you may have noticed Dale's initials, D-R-G. It's actually not a coincidence. When Dale started his career in film, he was only in sixteen but his talents as a storyteller earned him a job as the head of marketing at a martial arts studio - before he'd even graduated high school. Later, when he was a Lead Creative at Apple, his talents for solving problems on set and in the editing room earned him the nickname "Dr. G". Now, he applies those same skills at his own company. Dale has over ten years of experience in video and film production. He holds a degree in Marketing and Advertising from Kennesaw State University and a professional certificate in screenwriting from UCLA. He has written two feature length screenplays, directed three short films, and produced countless commercial projects. He lives in the Greater Atlanta Area with his wife and daughter and is writing his third feature length screenplay.
