Pacific Rim

Pacific Rim - no I have not started reviewing porno's, Pacific Rim is the title of the new blockbuster currently hitting cinemas. 

I didn't really have any expectations going into this film. The trailer looked pretty cool but the story of giant aliens vs giant robots was cause enough for caution. BUT it was frikken awesome! 

Directed by Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth, Hellboy) and starring Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba and Rinko Kikuchi. The world is faced with a new threat - the awesomely freakish Kaiju. Kaiju are giant monsters that erupt from within the earths core reeking havoc and destruction on the worlds surface. As Kaiju attacks become more frequent and more devastating, humans fight back with Jaegers (giant robots) manually manned from within by two pilots. Of course there's a bit of a storyline thrown in there but basically the formula goes like this... giant monsters + giant robots = some seriously sick shit. 

This movie is MASSIVE, from the very opening sequence the in your face action will have you mesmerised. The film looks and feels like a Japanese video game and no-one, and I mean NO-ONE, does monsters like Guillermo del Toro. The special effects team have done a stellar job of birthing these otherworldly creatures from Toro's twisted and brilliant imagination. The robots also look so damn cool so when these two gargantuan monsters meet it's a total explosion of 'EFF YEAH'.

Now blockbusters do come with their fair share of cheese and Pacific Rim does have a few extra helpings so expect a couple of cringe worthy jokes/lines/scenes/characters. The double dosing of the nutty professors is a bit over the top and they are clearly trying to outact/outfunny each other, but they do have a couple of scenes that will have you laughing. Aussies will be stoked to know there are a couple of 'Australian' characters in this film, unfortunately for us though the film cast an American and an Englishman to bring those characters to life and the terrible accents will have you cringing and laughing every time they speak. 

So Pacific Rim does have all your general tacky blockbuster guff but the monsters, action and climb to climax (once again - this is not a porno review) is all worth your bucks. It is without a doubt one of the most visually satisfying films I have seen - I am not joking when I say that my mouth was open for most of this film in awe of what I was witnessing on screen. So if you're a sci-fi action geek like me, get out of Mum's basement and go see Pacific Rim at the biggest, loudest cinema possible.

Baby is angsty. 

She hangs by the tennis courts in the late afternoons, unimpressed by the passers by. Full of attitude but oh so innocent, she wears her hair wild and free. In a mini dress and heart shaped glasses she walks the streets... waiting, but she does not know what for. A thrill, perhaps?

3 in 1 - movie reviews

Yes yes I know I have been a little distant lately but i've been moving house and working my butt off so any spare time has been even more scarce than usual. So to apologise for my lack of love I am going to give you 3 movie reviews in 1 post! Ahhhhhh it's crazy I know but I think you can handle it so let's do this yo...

Fast & Furious 6
Yes that's right, 6!!!! This film is ridiculous, and when I say ridiculous I mean absolutely redinkity donk! BUT...totally entertaining. I was in a pretty foul mood when I went to see this movie (moving house may have resulted in a few tears) but I walked out with a smile on my face. There is something nostalgic about seeing the old crew together, and when I say old I do mean old - Paul and Vin sure are getting a little long in the tooth, but who cares! The formula remains the same - corny one liners, muscly bald dudes, bad ass chicks, hot cars and OTT action. You feel like the actors, director, producers, stuntmen etc are all having a great time. The film pokes fun at itself which means you just relax and go with it - don't go in with any great expectations and you might have a bit of brain dead fun. 
3 outta 5

World War Z
I thought the trailer to this looked really awesome - something perhaps a little different for the used and abused zombie genre but unfortunately not the case. Directed by Marc Forster and starring powerhouse Brad Pitt, the film starts with the outbreak and then follows United Nations Officer Gerry on his mission to find the source and thus find a cure. The film starts with a very realistic approach, the way the zombies turn and then the way Gerry fights them off all seems very authentic but then there are just way too many over the top close calls that you stop believing in the movie and come back to pre-apocolyptic reality. The cure ends up being pretty gay but they did a great job of building tension and scaring the absolute shit out of you...repeatedly, so nervous wrecks be warned!
2.5 outta 5

Man of Steel
Superman is back! I have always been a big fan of the red caped avenger, loving the Christopher Reeves movies as a child. Superman Returns was a MAJOR flop so I think everyone was a little weary of Man of Steel but be assured it delivers the goods. Zack Snyder is behind the wheel as director with Christopher Nolan co-writing, so not to worry as we're in good hands peeps. The cast includes Henry Cavill (Superman), Amy Adams (Lois) and Michael Shannon (General Zod/Bad Guy) who all do a great job of bringing their characters to life. Some might find Adams to be an unusual fit for Lois but she is a top notch actress and is super likeable. Michael Shannon is an unreal actor who can do no wrong in my books and I think he makes an excellent bad dude. And he isn't just bad for no good reason, his character actually has some depth he doesn't just want to 'destroy the world' for any old sake. Henry Cavill as Superman is...well...EFFING HOT! OMG Superman is totally banging and his sad baby blues make you just want to diiiiiiie! The only thing I found a bit off-putting about this movie was the amount of destruction the world cops, after a while it actually becomes a little draining and you kinda just want the action scenes to end so you can relax. But all in all I think this was a great start to the new franchise and I can see many good things to come.
