I was so happy to get to edit this episode of Death Battle because I was huge into Power Rangers growing up. Somewhere in a dusty box at my dad’s house, there’s an original Megazord set of toys. All five. I’ve never had the heart to get rid of them. I loved those toys. I gotta dig them up some day soon.
Eagle-eared viewers will spot that Boomstick’s whistle is actually Nick Cramer. I grabbed the whistle that Nick recorded for the Benny VS Cuphead DBX from last December. Thanks, Nick!
I had an old VHS tape of maybe three episodes of Power Rangers and I wore that thing out! The episode that is still burned into my brain is the one where Zach thinks they have forgotten his birthday. CLASSIC.
I was really happy with graphics used in this episode. We often have to get creative with how we visually explain the math and science in the script. I was pleased with the use of reverse, playback speed, and motion.
If I may, I’m gonna plug my old podcast, (after) Thoughts. I used to produce/host a podcast where we rewatched a movie and compared our first impression with our second. Way back when, we did an episode on the Power Rangers Movie. I have vague memories of it being hilarious to record.
Speaking of movies, I didn’t like the new Godzilla movie. What did y’all think of it? I thought the plot didn’t make a lot of sense. It was hilarious though! A fun night at the movies for sure haha.
What I did love was this episode’s script. Tony and Thac did a fantastic job. Both rundowns tell the stories of these characters really well. The flow of the edit really benefited from it I think.
Also we should totally do a Death Battle in the Zord/Zilla fight suit style. I would love to make a mini city just to destroy it in ridiculous costumes.
Despite knowing Power Rangers a lot more than Godzilla, the zilla rundown edit went much smoother considering that it was basically just two movies to comb through as opposed to multiple episodes of Power Rangers.
Finally, you should all know that my text tone is still the 6-tone Power Ranger communicator sound.
More proof of my PR love
