So, full disclosure, I am a massive Mass Effect fan. Since it was announced that there would, in fact, be a fourth installment of Bioware’s benchmark space RPG series, I became infocidal for any news, rumors or telepathically transmitted information about “don’t call itMass Effect 4.” Now that I’ve had a chance to actually play Mass Effect Andromeda (about 40 hrs) I thought I would offer my initial impressions of the latest offering of my favorite video game franchise and address some of the early issues and bad reviews. Minor spoilers are likely.

The bulk of this film (originally titled 478) is based on a real-life mid-air collision between a Tu-154 passenger jet and a Boeing 747 cargo jet over Germany in 2002. Some elements of the story have been amplified for entertainment purposes, for example the location, the death toll, the sentencing, and the ending where the son seeks revenge.

“…this is a bad idea right?”
Surprisingly not really – that’s right. Power Rangers are back for all you kiddies from the nineties (and everyone else who’s wondering what the hell all of this is.) Welcome to the re-imagining of the original American knock-off of Japanese Super Sentai (has no bearing on the movie, but we’re all about the facts here.) The cult classic has a reboot with a new look, a new feel, and undoubtedly a new merchandise range.

Beauty and the Beast had a near impossible job on its hand: How do you remake arguably the most beloved animated movie of all time? Take the easy route and not change a thing and the critics will ask what the point is (hell, some grumps are gonna ask that no matter what happens). Change too much and the villagers will be after you with pitchforks.
