Movie Review of Pacific Rim
I saw Pacific Rim the other day and I decided to write a review of it.
Visually, Pacific Rim is amazing. The special effects are some of the best that I have ever seen. The action scenes are also amazing. The balance between the science fiction elements of the Jaeger mechs blend very well with the fantasy elements of the Kaiju.
Unfortunately, the plot is not handled as well. While I give them credit for giving an original twist on the usual alien invasion story, the plot is overly predictable. The characters have very little development, and are overall quite boring. The acting is mediocre, but you can’t really blame the actors because they have nothing to work with. At several times, I literally laughed out loud at how poorly the script was written.
Bottom Line: The special effects and amazing action scenes make this an enjoyable movie, but the poorly written script prevents it from being anything special
Rating- 2 (out of 4) stars
On another note: After seeing this movie, I really want to see a reboot of the Godzilla franchise (which apparently they’re working on). I don’t want it to be plot based like the most recent Godzilla, but like the original films and focus on giant monsters fighting, only with modern special effects.

So expect me to post a lot of it this week
Even though the only 2 musicals I’ve seen in this Broadway season are Cinderella and A Christmas Story, I decided to make some Tony predictions based on what other people are saying and some random guessing.
