Hello friends, long time no see once again 🙂
I’m very excited to bring you two podcast collabs I’ve just wrapped up with my buddy Craig of KneelBeforeBlog fame. We just reviewed both the Pacific Rim films and let me tell ya, this has been the most fun I’ve ever had recording a podcast.
As some of you may know, the first Pacific Rim movie has a special place in my heart. It’s got that kind of silly/outrageous scifi concept that in all theory shouldn’t work, and yet it does, because it’s a Guillermo Del Toro film, and that man has a way with stories that few others do. So here’s a two-hour (YEP THAT’S RIGHT!) discussion on it, featuring mentions of my hipster Gipsy Danger blog, my obsession with the novelisation and graphic novel prequels, as well as a lengthy diatribe on Raleigh Beckett’s mysterious accent:
We also reviewed Pacific Rim 2 which is out this week in cinemas. Is it a good sequel? Is it a good movie? Does it add anything to the narrative of the kaiju vs jaeger conflict? Well, find out in our discussion here:
Have you seen either of these films? What do you think of them? Can you shed some light on Raleigh’s accent? I’ll take any and all help I can get at this point.
