Coming Soon – Pacific Rim Weekend

pacificrim

In celebration to the release of the highly anticipated Pacific Rim, I’m going to be holding a little Pacific Rim Weekend on my blog here. Kicking things off tomorrow will be my review of the movie, after having experienced it in IMAX 3D. Then over the course of the rest of the weekend, I’ll be posting other articles about possible sequels, all the collectables you’ll be able to pick up in the coming months and possibly a review on the official game, despite how poor it may look.

Due to the unpredictability of the post, I’m unsure if I’ll receive my copy of Pacific Rim: Tales from Year Zero graphic novel in time. Rest assured, the prequel graphic novel will be read and reviewed as soon as it arrives. I’ll let you know if it’s worth a read and whether or not it adds to the experience of seeing the movie.

Greatest. Poster. Ever.

Greatest. Poster. Ever.

Like me, I hope you’ll be finding time to see the movie this weekend, It’s looking fantastic. Be sure to follow my posts to not miss anything this weekend, and thank you for reading.

Star Trek Into Darkness 3D (2013) Review

In my review for Star Trek Into Darkness (See Here), I praised the film for being able to focus more on the action with the previous movie having established the world and characters. The acting was great, the directing was great, the overall movie was an absolute blast. Now seeing it a second time, nothing has changed, it’s still the great movie I went seeing a week ago. Now though, I have watched it in 3D. Let me tell you, in 3D, the movie is even better!

I’ve always found 3D gimmicky and pointless, it’s only there to make the studios more money. The only other film I watch in 3D that I can honestly say improved the experience, was Prometheus. Star Trek Into Darkness in 3D is now the best 3D experience I’ve had. Every scene was given so much depth, there was no overuse of objects flying towards the screen and particle effects floated around the screen very nicely.

In the past I would never have recommended seeing a movie in 3D. You sit down wearing stupid looking glasses, watching a film that’s usually be quickly converted into 3D in post production. However, if your yet to see Star Trek Into Darkness, take it from me, see it in 3D.
