Pacific Rim: Uprising - Did This New Team Fail?

Image
From the first film featuring these mechanical wonders, it was inevitable that there will be sequels lined up. But will the new team for Pacific Rim: Uprising up to the expectations set by the first one?

Set 10 years after the Breach War,  a new generation of fighters and pilots are preparing for any posibility that kaijus would come back. And based on the trailer, they did and they seem to have something more advanced against the new Jeagers; Gypsy Avenger, Saber Athena, Bracer Pheonix, and Guardian Bravo.

Jake Pentecost join Nate Lambet to operate Gypsy Avenger along with young recruits who will trained to pilot the other Jeagers. Surprising the coalition is a rogue jeager and also the appearance of kaijus that sparked another dilemma of destruction especially in cities. I love the new jeagers, specially Saber Athena, yet I still love the original ones. The ten year gap between the two film also made a void between the two films.

Ready Player One - Pop Culture Film Of The Year!

Image
Nostalgia is what many films are banking on right now. And  Ready Player One is expected to bring a smorgasbord of pop culture, music, and games into one film. Based on the book by Ernest Cline, it is the ultimate fanboy movie that is now getting them hyped.

But was nostalgia the only driving force for the movie? Well we also have to consider the plot which is based on futuristic setting plus the virtual world which everyone is fighting for, the oasis. Bringing in a ton of references, cameos, and surprises, it is a Easter Egg within an Easter Egg.

With a lot at stake for the future of the oasis, the competition becomes a war for total control and half a trillion dollars, in the virtual and the real world. Wade Watts (Sheridan) becomes a prime player in the game which caught the attention of the "evil" IOI company and things get crazier in the real world. According to the book it was supposed to have more cameos but the things got complicated and they stick to what are availabl…

Taking A Visita Iglesia Via The Pasig River!

Image
Holy week is upon us and one of our devotional traditions is doing Visita Iglesia by visiting churches. Depending on your preference, you could visit 7, 8 or even 14 churches, usually done with the way of the cross. I've been practicing this tradition with friends and family, and I would always ask myself how can I make this a unique experience every year.

With many churches located within Metro Manila, there is practically a lot of place to go to to complete your itinerary. And recently, there is a new way of doing Visita Iglesia and this is through the Pasig River. It was in recent years that ferry service was available for the public. The Zoomanity Group had a great idea of infusing Visita Iglesia with the river cruise which makes it an unique experience.

Along with the combined threats of logging activities, poor law enforcement, and mining projects in biodiversity-rich areas such as Palawan, the country is losing approximately 47,000 hectares of forest cover every year, according to the data provided by the Forest Management Bureau of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources.

The War Awakens John Boyega in "Pacific Rim Uprising"

Image
John Boyega, the breakout star of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, plays the lead role of Jake, wayward son of the legendary war hero Stacker Pentecost (Idris Elba), in Universal Pictures' new epic action-adventure Pacific Rim Uprising.
The original Pacific Rim had made a big impression on Boyega, in the days before he broke out as a star. “Seeing Idris Elba in the first film was very important to me. At the time I was involved in acting on a small scale in drama clubs, and in 2013 I saw a print ad while I was on the bus—Idris Elba as Stacker in an all-black Jaeger suit. The image, and what it represented, immediately struck me and motivated me.”

Paul, Apostle of Christ - Faith That Moves

Image
Religious films is probably the most complicated films to be made. This is because it has to be precisely balanced to present it characters in portrayals that are not hard-selling religion which makes it spirituality like an advertisement more than message. Paul, Apostle of Christ proved that spiritual films can be artistic and moving.

Produced by Affirm Films, which made Christian Films like Fireproof and Risen, the film shows the fiinal days of St. Paul who has been travelling far and wide to build Christian communities and preach the gospel. Jim Caviezel who played Jesus Christ in Passion of the Christ is St. Luke here which somehow still has his impression of the Messiah without the Aramaic language.

Visionary Novel "Ready Player One" Gets Spectacular Movie Treatment

Image
Little more than 30 years ago, it seemed almost inconceivable that you could log onto a computer, create your own profile—true or not—and connect with people anywhere on the globe in real time. But what if, 30 years from now, you could log in, become your own personal avatar—true or not—and interact with people in an infinite virtual world? Consider the possibilities...and the perils.
That is the basic premise of Ernest Cline’s bestseller Ready Player One, which captured the imagination of one of the most revered and successful filmmakers of all time: Steven Spielberg. “It’s a huge, sprawling adventure that intercuts between two completely different worlds,” he says. “I think Ernest Cline is a visionary who wrote of a future that’s actually not so far away from where we’re heading with the evolution of virtual reality.”

Back to the Breach: "Pacific Rim Uprising" Begins

Image
In the original Pacific Rim, a Breach opened at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean, and through it emerged giant Kaiju, monsters engineered by the alien Precursors to move from dimension to dimension terraforming planets—exterminating the indigenous species and taking full territorial control.
These Kaiju unleashed their fury on coastal cities along the Pacific Rim, and proved virtually unstoppable with conventional weapons. Giant robotic warriors called Jaegers—piloted by humans connected by a neural bridge—were engineered to fight back. Jaeger Gipsy Danger successfully closed the Breach by detonating a nuclear bomb, helped by legendary Jaeger Marshal Stacker Pentecost, who gave his life to ensure the success of the operation.

Destiny Arrives with the Brand New "Avengers: Infinity War" Trailer

A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.

Tomb Raider - A New Start For A Classic Game

Image
We know the game, we know who stared in the first adaptation, now we look into a whole new start of the video game series Tomb Raider. The role of Lara Croft is passed to Alicia Vikander (The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and The Danish Girl) who is out to prove her worth now as a action star.

Although she has proved then their worth with her previous movies, many are still hesitant if she can live up to her predecessor. However we must note that this film is based on 2013 version of the video game. As it goes into a new direction and also digs deeper to the life of Lara Croft, it eventually shows its own charm to catch the viewer's attention.

We see a lot of characters here playing crucial roles in order to bring Lara to her goal. However I am quite disappointed with Daniel Wu's character which seems like a non-essential character to the story. He seems like a wallflower for the film which maybe wants to target the Chinese market. This is something like a waste of his talent due to story…
