        A Darkness Strange & Lovely giveaways, playlists, and Pacific Rim

        So I saw Pacific Rim last night…

        Guys, I have been excited about that film for almost a year now–ever since I first heard about it at San Diego Comic-Con last year. Honestly, it’s rare that I anticipate a film or get even remotely excited about its launch. It’s even more rare that I go see a film as soon as it opens.

        But man, Pacific Rim. Pacific Rim, guys.

        This movie blew my mind. It was everything I wanted and more. I’m not usually an action movie person–I like characters more than explosions…

        But MAN, Pacific Rim!

        It had characters that were developed just enough for me to love and action that didn’t make my eyes glaze over. Plus, there was a kickass girl–like, kickass–and it was so refreshing to see her. And refreshing to not have romance.

        It was the world, though, that really got me. The details was so insane–from the Shatterdome to the Bone Slums to the inside of the Jaegers. WOW. It was everything my inner tween, who was obsessed with Robotech/Gundam Wing, Blade Runner, and basically mecha & gritty sci-fi of any kind, wanted to see. Hell, it was everything the adult me wanted too, and I hope-hope-hope we see more mecha and more Pacific Rim stuff in the future. (Read more…)
