We had fun, though probably it was not a 75 minute panel. People were very respectful of my grumpiness and we had some good discussion. Things we haven't talked about here before: the number of people with disabilities; shoes as a character / design theme; the hour of cut character development that isn't on the Collector's Edition disc release, damn it; and that Tom Cruise was apparently offered Idris Elba's part (!!!!).
Links I promised at the panel:

A love letter to Pacific Rim, in the form of a fanvid. Mostly about Mako, and also Raleigh and Stacker, and rangers, and JAEGERS. Much like the movie, there is no irony here. Only love.
"if you are afraid, give more / if you are alive, give more now / everybody here has seams and scars / so what? level up"
The song is from Vienna Teng's new album, Aims.
My prior post has a few fic recs. Oh, and because I complained about Tendo Choi being played by a Latino actor in that post, the non-movie stuff establishes that he has Latino ancestry, but since that didn't get into the movie, I wish they'd changed his name to reflect that instead. comment(s) | add comment (how-to) | link
