Power Rangers is at 50% on RT right now with 14 reviews. It could go either way but I was expecting much worse.

Considering the overly positive way critics are reviewing films (or RT is categorising films), you have to chop any recent RT score in half to get an accurate score. So, Power Rangers is at 25%. ;)

Things like this cause as much backlash as they do interest, so it cancels itself.

Chicks making out = hot so it shouldn't be as big of a deal.

Though, like Beauty, if there is a controversy they can only blame themselves. I'm gonna guess that people who get offended by these things aren't big movie watchers in the first place, so if Disney and now Lionsgate hadn't touted about having the first "openly gay characters" of their respective franchies, the bigots would never know.

I don't want to live in a world where Dax Shephard is legitimized, so I'm looking forward to CHIPS tanking.

Eh, at this point controversy over gay characters "hurts" about as much as MRA controversy. Most people I know, even Trump voters or incredibly Christian people, are completely indifferent to that kind of stuff. The gay "controversy" over BATB was completely limited, and when I saw the film the gayer moments actually got very strong reactions (and I was watching it in a Chicago suburb that is politically purple). It just gives extra publicity to the movie and gives most people a chance to laugh at other people less enlightened than themselves.

The BATB thing was blown completely out of proportion. I doubt many kids even noticed the 2 or 3 moments, one of which was actually funny.

It's not marketed right to kids like BATB was.

It's just what I think. I tested the water by giving some of my insight, and you replied as I knew you would. I won't add more.

You won't add more because you can't add more.

You knew I would reply a certain way because your reasoning was so easy to refute.

It's pretty close. Just like the TMNT movies. Sure they're PG-13, but let's be honest, it's mostly kids stuff.

Slamma Jamma might have the worst PTA ever for a moderate release.

I can't believe there's a movie called Slamma Jamma.

We never really get movie billboards in Kansas City, but Slamma Jamma has had a pretty prominent one up for like a month. I have no idea what the movie even is - the billboard just says "Slamma Jamma" and its release date.

There might be a random person here or there who really digs hoops and walks up to buy a ticket. Outside of that, I can't imagine awareness is even registering on the radar. It had 10 tweets yesterday.

Last year's Ninja Turtles would have been a stronger comp.

It's barely moved up from Monday though and that was with the Bogo deal. I don't know, but these pre-sales seem really weak for a film some people are expecting to do $40M-$50M let alone come anywhere near 60.

I'm just not seeing it.

Bogo was on Atom, not movietickets...
