“Power Rangers” became an instant classic in the early ’90s. Despite its somewhat comical nature, the show earned its place in the hearts and memories of young children everywhere. Now, after numerous incarnations, it’s “morphin time” once again.

On March 24, the Power Rangers will return to Angel Grove, Calif. in an epic reboot of computer-generated proportions. With its “Man of Steel” atmosphere and “Transformers”-style battles, the film itself promises to be the sum of its predecessors. Though that in itself isn’t an automatic death sentence, the upcoming installment doesn’t quite have the nostalgic vibe hardcore fans might prefer.

Of course, it’s no surprise that the filmmakers found it imperative to update the tone of the series. Its leads face an entirely different world than their “Mighty Morphin” counterparts, after all. Yet, while the actors who portray the Power Rangers weren’t yet born when the original episodes aired—an aspect we “old folks” would rather sweep under the rug—it’s Elizabeth Banks’ turn as Rita Repulsa that promises to attract viewers of all varieties.

10 Guys That Deserve the “Sexiest Man Alive” Title More Than Adam Levine

Adam Levine, that whiny, little man-boy from ‘The Voice’ and Maroon 5, has been deemed People Magazine’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ (as chosen by blind, brainless morons, apparently). Yet, while there will surely be women drooling all over your local newsstand in the near future, not all of us think he’s the bee’s knees. In honor of People’s poor choice, here’s my personal list of gentlemen who deserve the title (in no particular order):
