Its Friday, and I've taken a break from writing. The reason I'm posting this is because I'm trying to stay busy. I'll update you guys why in the next Life update post. In the mean time here is some Lols.
This film is a perfect example that we shouldn't rule anything out in our film industry. Let me start by saying this, this film is epic. This film will have you applauding. There were audience members in our cinema well over the age of at least 60 (They set where the elderly people normally sit, ya know up front but not in the front-front.) and they applauded several times during the bigger than life battles.
This film as I've explained isn't a academy award film, its simply a Epic Summer Block Buster. The story is straight forward. Kaiju (Japanese for Large beast) come from a dimension rip in the depths of the Pacific Ocean and they reek havoc and destroy cities (they are trying to rid the world of man kind) and we humans are tired of it. So we create giant Robots called Jaegers (German for hunters) to stop them.
So There you go a basic story. Stop the Kaiju (There's a lot more to the story I'm not going to spoil) from leveling our cities.
The battles between Kaiju and Jaegers is truly GCI at its best. I hate to say it but watching this battles reminded me of back when the first Transformers film came out, and watching Blackout (The Sikorsky MH-53 Pave Low) Transform in that opening scene was mind blowing at the time but this! It seems so minor.
Now to talk about the Kaiju! All of them had something amazing about them. They each made their own entrance and just had something special about it. One of my favorite one was Leatherbacks (Yes the Kaiju have names) bursting out the water and taking down Russia's Cherno Alpha.
One thing that did bother me, well I cant say it ruined the movie for me, and it did make a couple shots look really epic. But there was a lot of water during these battles, and when I say a lot I mean every fight had a load of water in it. I would've liked to see a Jaeger, Kaiju fight in maybe a snowy area maybe, or maybe in the fight in Hong Kong take away the rain? Idk Not that big of a deal. Just a little something.
The characters are pretty straight forward like the story. One character I think everyone will agree on is Idris Elba. He held the film, and was amazing to watch. Like when he entered a scene you knew he was going to be bad ass. I kept saying to myself I can't wait to see him in Thor: Dark World as Heimdall later this year.
Anyway I'm going to wrap this up. This film brought the kid out in me!! And as a filmmaker, it made me want to go make a giant monster film. Because it shows that this genre was fun back then and it still can be. Lets not take our films to seriously, They should take us away and be fun, and that what Pacific Rim is! Fun and I recommend it to anyone one who has a boring life XD
This would be a good time to check in. Still no job, but the search continues. Can't give up just yet. Got a lot to still do in life. Have to meet certain people, and get to new places. It sorta kinda sucks because I'm just now realizing that before this reality check, I was wasting my time. I should have been saving my money and focusing on school and getting my equipment.
So, once I find and get a new job things will be much different than previous years. As for this down time in between the job search, and preparing for school I've been working on multiple scripts, and bouncing ideas around.
One of the script I was recently working on this weekend was a short chase scene. We never get to see what the character is running from, but throughout the chase we start to see his fear take over and slowly slow him down. Basically at the end he would be overtaken by what he's running from and everything goes black.
Plus another script that I'm scrapping is The Kingdom of Stars. Why well the heart was in the right place for it but it came out completely wrong. The time period is what I feel the reader will get confused with because it bounces and uses references from its earliest time period which is like the dawn of time till now. So That one is being scrapped, but the titled I'm sure will be used on a different reworked story/script.
Well that's all for now today's date is July 17, 2013 at 2:38
Its been months since I've searched the internet for funny stuff to cheer me up. Well since SOMETHINGS have changed, I've found some time to pull together some Lols. What can this New Era of Lols be called? NEO-Lols? We'll see how this works out.
Mmmhhmm Yes keep going.....
