Last week, whoever is responsible for the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers movie released a publicity picture of Elizabeth Banks as villainess bad bitch Rita Repulsa, and I think it put a rash on my eyeballs, because she looked like a mutated Poison Ivy. Well, now here’s a bunch of pictures from the Canadian set in Vancouver of Elizabeth Banks’ full costume, and I don’t really see a mutated Poison Ivy anymore. I see Lady CaCa circa Born This Way in a costume that was inspired by the aloe vera plant she had an intense conversation with while tripping on LSD. Like I said yesterday, I was on a boat this weekend and got a sunburn, so I just want to reach through the screen, rip off a piece of Rita’s aloe vera costume and rub it on my skin.
I also see a bunch of She-Ra action figures mashed up into one, and that makes me sad. Because I wish that Hollywood would’ve done a She-Ra movie instead of a damn Power Rangers movie. It’s not too late! They can still scrap that Power Rangers shit, and use the costumes to make 80s dreams come true by doing a She-Ra movie. I mean, with just a few tweaks, Elizabeth’s busted Rita Repulsa costume can be changed into a gorgeous Double Trouble costume!
Please, Hollywood, make this happen. Do something right for once!
