Pacific Rim

Last July 13, 2013 we watched Pacific Rim at SM Megamall. It was my treat! We’ve been planning to watch the movie for quite some time after seeing its trailer during Man of Steel film viewing.

And we watched in 3D! I guess it was somehow worth it because there were many effects and the fighting scenes were pretty good. Kind of reminded me of Vandread! Oh right ,that’s very right – because Vandread works with two people aboard the Dreads in this case, called Jaeger in Pacific Rim. Upon watching this, it occurred to me Jaegers were everywhere (because of Shingeki no Kyojin)

Nevertheless, what can I say about this movie you ask?

First Impressions:

This movie really amazed me the first time I saw its trailer. And I guess, hearing “Manila” as line of the script kind of made me interested with the movie. After all, I’ve enjoyed Transformers, why not give this too a shot even if I’m not a fan of huge robots?

Story:

To tell you the truth, the story isn’t really much to me but I must say there were lots of emotions in this movie. It’s also about sacrifices and learning to control your feelings.

Overall:

To me, this movie is pretty good but not your over the top level movie. Then again, they did a good job with the effects and 3D graphics were extremely improved compared to all movies of before that it almost looks realistic. Feels like watching a video game in action!

Last weekend, we ended up watching Cloud Atlas because of a mishap with Life of Pi. I didn’t like it that much because it was really long. Then again it was pretty epic because many known celebrities stars in the movie.

I’m most familiar with Halle Berry, Tom Hanks, Hugo Weaving and Hugh Grant. Then there’s from Skyfall, Ben Whishaw. They play different characters but here’s the twist – they play not only one, but two, no, more than two characters!

Cloud Atlas is actually a composed music by an artist in the movie that has some, uh, some issues with his gender (I’ve nothing against it, okay?) and then there are others stories in the movie – which is okay but also makes it confusing at the same time but they’re somehow connected because the main thing here in the movie is that they are the same people of different time and place.

It was pretty cool because playing different characters in a movie at the same time is pretty confusing don’t you think? But this people prove what real acting is. So I still give it some score, 7/10 if you ask me 🙂
