So over the last weekend the new Power Ranger movie finally came out. Yes Power Rangers. About 20 years ago it was huge and then like many things tended to fall by the wayside and be forgotten. However in the last several years all that old stuff has become massively popular again. My generation, the one that literally grew up with things like Power Rangers and Pokemon, all of a sudden is being seen as this cash cow of things. Collectibles, movies, relaunches of television shows from shows 20 years old are now making there way into the mainstream. It’s being celebrated even. Growing up you were mocked for still liking these things after a while now I feel it’s the opposite if you don’t like it then your mocked, at least online anyway, not in real life at least.
It’s all driven by fond memories. Sometimes this of course bites you in the backside of course. Either you look back at the original and wonder why you were so into at all or the new thing retroactively kills your enjoyment of it. It’s possible. Sometimes though you get really lucky and the new thing reminds you that you of the love of the original and you get to not only enjoy this new experience but the original all over again.
