Feat. The Music of Ramin Djawadi & Tom Morello
We are cancelling The Apocalypse!
Idris Elba is feeling better, and so is humanity
Oh, and the MUSIC. Tom Morello on the guitar.
While the greatest threat to civilization is actually microscopic, a Ginormous alien monster invasion sure makes for a good pop-corn flick! The studio pried Guillermo Del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, The Shape of Water, Hellboy) from a passion project to direct this big action block-buster, against his will. But he still delivered!
When Godzilla-esque aliens emerge from a portal in the pacific ocean, and begin ravaging coastal cities, humanity builds giant steel mecha machines to brawl with the monsters mano a mano
Leave it to humans to believe the most optimal combat design is just a huge ass version of Dwayne Johnson😂 I’d like to be a fly on the wall in that brainstorming session. “Like, I think it should for sure have apposable thumbs.” “Most def, opposable thumbs (Check) And a frontal cortex.” (Check) …. “Torso, arms & Legs”…….”Penis???” “I mean the kids are already scared man…” “RighhhhhhhT. Okay how about the longest sword the world has every seen instead?” “DONE!!”
A Boy’s dream
These giant robots, called “Jaegers,” are custom built, with unique attacks, armor, cool pilots, and Super Huuge, Kick-Ass!🤙 BOOM!💥 POW!👊🥋⨳ VvvvvRRRRRROOOOOOOOOOO……CRSHHHh!!!.😮…
Ohhhh, This is why it took me so long to get a girlfriend🤔…
“The Deeper The Bond, The Better You Fight”
My favorite design feature of the Jaeger’s is that they require two pilots to share the neural load – just like how we have two hemispheres of the brain. The more compatible the pilots are, the more efficiently they pilot the machine. Which is why pilot crews are usually family – siblings, father-son duos, life partners, etc.
Then there’s Raleigh (Charlie Hunnam) the main character, who, hours after meeting the hot girl pilot (Rinko Kikuchi) decides they are just Soooo compatible they have to pilot together Lol.
Ok, I didn’t expect to roast this movie here as hard as I did😆 It’s actually very well done. If you can get past a lot of cheesy dialogue, and instead focus on the engineering, the incredible special effects, Awesome music, and really fun plot, you’ll have a blast!
