My review for Pacific Rim (2013)
Forgot about human relationships and development, "Pacific Rim" is a breathtaking no holds barred robots on monsters hardcore fighting to the death! Do you expect to see something deep and meaningful from that description I just gave you? Heck no! "Pacific Rim" is directed by Guillermo del Toro and it centers around a war between humans and monstrous sea creatures known as "Kaiju". The human's response to these attackers are none other than Giant mecha robots known as "Jaegers". Pretty straight forward, right? The film's narrative goes on to offer a bold, exhaustive and utterly convincing definition of the word, fun. "Pacific Rim" feels like you're rediscovering a favorite childhood anime mecha series, but del Toro comes in and floods the film with such affection and artistry that, rather than smiling nostalgically, you find yourself enchanted all over again. The visual spectacular is brimming with lush colors and intense action sequences. Del Toro paints a richly textured portrait that utilizes every bit of what CGI imagery can offer. The final result is atmospheric and vivid, as you feel like you've been transported into a another world. * Continues in part 2 *

Ironman 2 but with giant robots.
PACIFIC RIM UPRISING delivers. It's bigger and the stakes are higher but along with it is a rushed story and a villain that started as surprising but ended as a generic Marvel antagonist. John Boyega continues to prove he can carry a franchise as he plays Idris Elba's son, Jake Pentecost, while newcommer Cailey Spaeny plays Amara, a 15yo Jaeger-builder/pilot. The two becomes the new tandem and will eventually carry the franchise from here on. Scott Eastwood, Tian Jing, Rinko Kikuchi and Burn Gorman were distinct in their roles but because of the quick pace, they weren't really fleshed out well. But ultimately, we're here to see giant robots and monsters fight each other and that's where this movie really shines. Overall, despite a cliche plot and a disappointing villain, PACIFIC RIM: UPRISING is still an enjoyable film I'd watch any time of the day. Go see it in 3D!
Ive been single a year now and I got to thinking...my preference in men has changed alot. I used to date younger men...anywhere from four years to 11years my junior! But not anymore... Give me a funny, sweet, arrogant, classy, intellectual, big hearted, creative, and demon slaying man....and that's my guy. Fifty and older is purrr-fect!!!! 🙌🙌🙌😍😍😍 #olderguys#alphamale#worththewait#srkfan#idriselba#therock
Name: The Dark Tower
Rating: 5/5👍🏼 Coming from somebody who has never read the books, this film basically advertises the creativity and ideas of the book series. Either way, it includes amazing action sequences and a story to catch your attention! #darktower#stephenking#idriselba#movies
So, Pacific Rim is a 2013 Science-Fiction, Action film, directed by: Guillermo Del Toro. Starring: Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Rob Kazinsky, Max Martini, and Ron Pearlman.
When gigantic creatures known as Kaiju, ravage the Earth, the human race creates equally sized Robot avatars, driven by two pilots, known as Jaegers. Now they must try to restore peace to the world by destroying the creatures gateway.
A fun and entertaining premise, but ruined by the story.
I love Del Toro. He's a master of World building and he does that here. So much information and exploration is given to the Kaiju, Jaegers, and the state of the world. Idris Elba is just a force of nature in everything he's in. Although his character was a cliché, it was still a fun performance. The visuals (both CGI and practical) and action scenes were epic and a fun time.
My problems consist of the script. Character and story are unoriginal and, unfortunately, boring. I am not a Charlie Hunnam fan. I don't think he is a good actor. In fact acting and chemistry all around wasn't good. The dialogue is cheesy and cringeworthy. And I wanted to see more Robots vs. Aliens.
In the end, this film has fun action sequences, visuals, and vision, but I don't think the film had as much fun as it could've. I'll give Pacific Rim a C- •
Idris Elba: Racism has more of an impact now
Idris Elba says the impact of racism has changed since he was growing up as a teenager in east London.
The 'Luther' star moved from Hackney to London's white-working class area of Canning Town in the 80s as a teenager and has documented the period in his life for Sky 1 comedy 'In The Long Run', which is based lightly around his late real-life father Winston from Sierra Leone.
Speaking about how they have tackled racial issues in the show The i Paper, Idris - who has daughter Isan, 15, and son Winston, three, from past relationships - said: "We take it on as it was.
"Back then people would say all sorts of offensive things, but to be honest be less offended. So racism seemed to have less of an impact. You'd get someone say: 'You black bastard', and it wasn't like there was going to be a riot. We're quite honest about that."
Whilst Idris - who takes on the role of his father who is called Winston in the show as well - says they were careful not to offend, they weren't "overly sensitive" to allow the comedy element.
He explained: "We don't take it lightly. We consider every single racial slur or racist storyline really seriously in the show - but we don't overcook it, we're not overly sensitive about it.

Título: Depois Daquela Montanha
Título Original: The Mountain Between Us
Ano de Lançamento: 2017
Direção: Hany Abu-Assad
Elenco principal: Idris Elba e Kate Winslet
Sinopse: Alex (Kate Winslet), uma jornalista que está indo preparar seu casamento, e Ben (Idris Elba), um doutor voltando de uma conferência médica, iriam pegar o mesmo avião, mas o voo é cancelado e os dois estranhos decidem fretar um jatinho. Durante a viagem o piloto sofre um ataque cardíaco e o avião cai em uma região montanhosa coberta por neve. Um romance começa a ganhar força enquanto eles tentam sobreviver, feridos e perdidos.
Crítica: O grande ponto do filme são as tomadas feitas com a paisagem local, que mostram a grandeza daquele lugar e o perigo que os protagonistas enfrentam. A química entre os dois atores é boa, porém o roteiro é muito pobre e a construção do romance parece forçada demais. Salvo raras exceções, o filme não oferece grandes cenas de sobrevivência ou de ação.
Nota: 5 Pipocas!!

PACIFIC RIM (2013)
One of my very first cinematography posts were for Pacific Rim, and now will the sequel being released, I couldn't think of a better time to showcase the stills that I didn't get to when I did my first post.
Pacific Rim is a clear love letter to mecha anime, which is something that's Del Toro makes clear that he has a love for.
There's always a great sense of scale and size to the robots and kaijūs. They always find clever ways to show just how big they are.
The colors are really vibrant and always play a big part in the film, which is something you'll be able to see in pretty much all of Del Toro's films. It's overall some of the best cinematography in any film I've seen. Everything looks so pleasing and makes the whole film better.
While I don't love Pacific Rim, I do think that it's a visually great film, that's also a fun summer blockbuster. I really would've liked it if Del Toro also directed the sequel. His visual style will be missed, and he's the thing that made the first one so great, so not having him on this one is a huge loss.
Movie Rating No 222
Pacific Rim (2013)
Rating :- ⭐⭐⭐½
When monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity's resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes - a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi) - who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind's last hope against the mounting apocalypse.
A life-sized version of the robot cockpit was built on a soundstage at Pinewood Studios in Toronto. It weighed about twenty tons and stood nearly four stories high. It was built on a gigantic hydraulic gimbal, which would move, shake, vibrate, drop, and rock the entire set as if it were actually being piloted. A smaller version was also built with a smaller gimbal, allowing for different movements. The VFX team used some of the Conn-pod footage for reference while animating the robots. The set was also redressed to depict the interior of each robot differently.
