Arisia: Pacific Rim panel

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 (!!!!).

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.

The Visual Intelligence of Pacific Rim

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 count unavailable comment(s) | add comment (how-to) | link

    I didn't like it as much as the AV Club reviewer and almost everyone in the comments there, because the case structure is kind of wonky. I mean, you…

  • Elementary catchup

    I'd watched the first half of last season more-or-less in real time and as a result have forgotten most of it that wasn't carried through the back…

  • Elementary season opener

    Got to watch "Step Nine," this season's opener! . . . unfortunately I thought it was overly-pat and obvious. Oh well. Still in the queue: Korra,…
