What did you think of director Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim? I loved it. It was a really fun monster versus mech movie. The cinematography was gorgeous; in usual del Toro fashion. It spoke to me on a deep level. The child in me. That one who loved Ultra Man all the way to — dare I say it — Superhuman Samurai Syber-Squad. So hearing that Pacific Rim 2 is moving forward is fantastic news to me.
Last night I watched Star Wars: The Force Awakens in theaters yet again. Today, I stumbled onto the fact that David Prowse, the actor who wore the Darth Vader suit in the original trilogy, posted something very interesting on his Facebook.
You watched The Force Awakens, right? If not — what the heck are you doing? Go see it right now! A spoiler is on the horizon; in just the next paragraph.
Amongst the craziness of a certain little movie in theaters, I went and saw the film Creed. Nearly everything about it is incredible; the likable characters, the emotional weight behind every scene, and the fantastic camera work. It quickly became one of my top movies of 2015. Suffice to say, I was very excited to hear that the man behind Creed will direct Marvel’s Black Panther.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is dominating theaters everywhere. And we won’t have to wait too long for the next installment. The script was already finished by Rian Johnson, who will also direct the untitled Episode VIII film that’s due on May 26, 2017.
Usually I don’t read (or even write for the matter) reviews. For the past couple years I preferred going in blind to a movie – or at least as much as possible. In retrospect, that was a little hard to do, considering that I have this blog. It’s kind of ironic. It also explains why I have written less about spoilers on here. Nevertheless, I read a review on a movie that instantly piqued my interest: The Big Short.
