Film Review: ‘Pacific Rim: Uprising’!

by Bryan Kluger on Mar 22nd, 2018

Alright lets get the plot out of the way, shall we? Pacific Rim: Uprising takes place ten years after the final battle of the first film in which Stacker Pentecost (Idris Elba) gave his life to stop the Kaiju attacks. Stacker’s son, Jake, is played by John Boyega of Star Wars fame and is a promising Jaeger (the big robots) pilot who quit his training and does some underground criminal activity at the start of the film. The Jaeger program has evolved since we last saw the program where a new, younger crew defends the planet. A young girl creates her own Jaeger and is captured with Jake, which leads them to both join/rejoin the program. Of course a rogue Jaeger seems to be causing trouble and might be working with the Kaiju to reopen The Breach and release new monsters. Jake teams up with his former rival Nate (Scott Eastwood) and the young new recruits to stop the World from being destroyed and honor his father’s legacy.

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

THE FILM

Robots, monsters, and Ron Perlman. Oh my. Director Guillermo Del Toro has given us a movie that we’ve all wanted to see since we were five years old. In an action-packed and brilliant special effects film, we have giant 30-story robots fighting vicious mega monsters on Earth. Guillermo was the perfect person for this project as he is a fan of genre films and can tell a great story with flawless structure and good acting, while mixing in loud and vibrating action sequences. ‘Pacific Rim‘ movies fast and will keep you on your toes till the very end.

by Bryan Kluger on Jun 6th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

John_Boyega_97807

Yes, we are finally getting that ‘Pacific Rim‘ sequel we have always wanted, but again, it won’t be directed by Guillmero Del Toro. Instead, it will be directed by Steven S. DeKnight, who is more into TV Series, than films. Actually, this is DeKnight’s first feature film, and a mighty big one at that. DeKnight, Del Toro, and Legendary Pictures have set John Boyega to star in the sequel.

steven-s-deknight-spartacus

We’ve known for a while that Guillermo del Toro, the mastermind to write and direct ‘Pacific Rim‘, would not be coming back to helm the sequel. The question on everyone’s lips has been “Who will direct?” That question has now been answered and the response comes in the form of Steven S. DeKnight.

Hey guys, Jana here,

del_toro_pacific_rim2

If you thought that the war between humankind and sea creatures of an egregious nature were over at the end of ‘Pacific Rim‘, you don’t get how movies are made today. Everything has an option for a sequel, but the biggest teaser for a next-in-line film is the small glimpse we got at the Kaiju’s realm when the package was delivered , detonated and killed everything, right? If it killed everything where would our sequel lead?

Hi, Bryan Here….

I’m so psyched about this film.  Here is the first footage from Guillermo Del Toro’s epic film ‘Pacific Rim‘, which acts as sort of a viral marketing campaign for the movie.  This looks like a sort of CNN report warning civilians of giant Kaiju aliens.  And when I mean giant, I mean giant.  The film opens July 12, 2013, and I can’t wait.  Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Ron Perlman, Rinko Kikuchi and Charlie Day are in the film.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Guillermo Del Toro’s epic film ‘Pacific Rim’ is receiving the up-convert to 3D. In past interviews with Guillermo about this film being 3D, he has always said it won’t be.  He did not want it to be 3D.  However, the scope of this film is supposed to be HUGE, and with 3D ticket prices higher than standard ticket prices, this film could make more money.  That’s probably what the studio execs are thinking.

THE FILM

When Guillermo Del Toro makes a movie, you pay attention, but a ticket, strap yourself in the seat, and prepare your eyeholes for something that is guaranteed to thrill you, chill you, and fulfill you. With a resume that includes ‘Pan’s Labyrinth‘, ‘Hellboy I & II‘, ‘Blade II‘, ‘Pacific Rim‘, and ‘The Devil’s Backbone‘, you know for sure, you’re in for something special when Del Toro is involved. That brings us to his latest masterpiece of cinema, ‘Crimson Peak‘. Now I know that the trailers for ‘Crimson Peak‘ paint a picture that makes this look like a straight horror film, which is not the case here.

Favorite Movies of 2017!

by Bryan Kluger on Dec 27th, 2017

Was 2017 a great year for movies? Of course it was. There were some excellent films to be released in 2017. There were also some bad ones for sure, but the focus on this article are some of the Best films that stuck with me long after viewing. Most people will give you their Top 10 list, but this is no Top 10, because there are just so many movies that I loved and feel passionate about, that I find it difficult and unpleasing to rank them.

Instead, these are my favorite movies of 2017, which I hope you’ve seen already. If you haven’t yet, you’re in for a real treat and I can’t wait for you to see them. Some of these films are still in theaters, while some are on Netflix, 4K UHD, and Blu-ray, so you’ll be able to quickly see any of these if you haven’t. I watched over 270 movies that were released in 2017 and these are my absolute favorites. I hope you get to see all of these, because I know you’ll love them. In no particular order…..

Film Review: ‘[The Dark Tower]’!!

by Janet White on Aug 5th, 2017

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

 

 

From the warped, creative mind of Stephen King comes a story of the oldest of battles, good versus evil. The master of the weird provided eight books in The Dark Tower series for Nikolaj Arcel, the director, to mold and shape for our viewing pleasure. Jake Chambers (Tom Taylor), a seemingly typical kid, awakes from slumber with his walls and the ground shaking. Natural disaster? No, because it happens far too often. Visions plague Jake’s and the earthquakes are the result, but why? What is it about Jake? He will journey far (and I mean FAR) to discover the truth. Read the rest of this entry »



4K UHD Reivew: Kong: Skull Island!

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

We’ve seen a ton of versions of ‘King Kong‘ over the decades from the 1933 version to the Jeff Bridges version in the 1970s, and even more recently, the 2005 version that was directed by ‘Lord of the Rings‘ director Peter Jackson. ‘King Kong‘ has been a staple in entertainment and pop culture since he debuted in the early 30s and he is showing no signs of stopping, thanks to Warner Bros.and Legendary Pictures who are taking their cues from Marvel and creating their own universe called the ‘MonsterVerse‘.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

It’s official now. Sony has hired director Andy Muschietti to make the big budget Sci-Fi action adventure film Robotech, which has been long talked about.

Muschietti’s creative team will also join him for Robotech.

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

King Arthur - Trio

 

Forget every film about the story of King Arthur, because King Arthur: The Legend of the Sword has nearly nothing to do with them. Uther Pendragon (Eric Bana, Yum!) is still Arthur’s father and Igraine (Poppy Delevingne) is his mother, but there is an uncle thrown into the mix, Vortigern (Jude Law). I cannot recall the character in medieval tale (and I took a course on King Arthur in college). Anyway, Law played him pretty well. I will not give it away, but I do not think I have seen Law like this ever. Mordred is a sorcerer instead of the Arthur’s son from Morgaine Le Fay? Yes, this is King Arthur told in a novel method.

Bad news. Kong: Skull Island isn’t a good movie, but it isn’t a bad one either. It exists in that awful “shrug” territory “Why?” or “I guess that works.”
