Awesome Asian Bad Guys

A premise that makes fun of the known Asian bad guys makes it a little funny with them starring in it, but add they have to work as a team to stop real bad guys makes it ridiculous. Starring Al Leong, Yuji Okumoto, George Cheung and Randall Park this film will bring back memories of them fighting and dying in so many classics you'll just have to remember their names this time.

 Blue Bustamante

It's a sentai hero show! Blue Bustamante, the hero of the film is an Overseas Filipino Worker who caught a break being the hero of a kid's show. He's still not out of the woods with his son being bullied and a strained relationship with his wife. Mostly for TTDILA it will be the the nostalgia factor of seeing a filmmaker try and capture behind the scenes of a Power Ranger like show and keep it honest, dramatic and funny.
