In this sudden urge for post-apocalyptic movies, comes yet another entry that will blow your mind away, literally.  Acclaimed director/screenwriter/producer Guillermo del Toro has put his hands to work once again, this time as director and co-writer of what was sold as the biggest summer blockbuster movie that would come out: Pacific Rim.  And what better way to sell such a movie than by having such a visionary director as del Toro taking part in it.  This is the guy that wrote and directed the Hellboy series and the classic that is Pan’s Labyrinth.  And let’s not forget, he is one of the writers in The Hobbit trilogy.  So, given these facts, what can be expected from Del Toro’s  Pacific Rim?  As much as you can get from a movie about robots fighting aliens.  In other words, you will get the most beautifully pacificrim_poster_otachi_kaiju_largeenvisioned movie of the year since Oblivion, but almost no story to help it go any further than just style.  What Guillermo del Toro has done here is create Oscar-worthy scenery and cinematography, but has left aside all the elements that make up for a good plot, which is probably what Guillermo del Toro is best known for, his storytelling and originality.

Let me start off by saying sorry for not writing in over a month.  As some of you might know, I was in Europe this semester studying abroad, and I did not finish finals until the last week of May.  But now, I’m back in Puerto Rico, and I am ready to write some more!  As of the moment, I am currently in the process of writing four reviews, which you might expect to be up any day in the next week or two!  However I am still not done writing them, so for now, I’ll leave you guys with a trailer for a movie I am extremely excited for, MACHETE KILLS!  The sequel to the 2010 Machete counts once again with Danny Trejo in the lead role as the ex-Federale with a taste for vengeance, Machete, along with recurring roles from Jessica Alba and Michelle Rodriguez.  Also joining the cast will be Mel Gibson, Sofia Vergara, Amber Heard, Antonio Banderas, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Mel Gibson, Lady Gaga in her first film role, and none other than Charlie Sheen, as the President of the United States.  Director Robert Rodriguez’s Machete Kills will be hitting theaters September 13, 2013.

Will you be watching this movie when it comes out?

This morning, I woke up to wonderful news.  After the instant comedy classics Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, the British duo Simon Pegg and Nick Frost join forces once again with director Edgar Wright in Wright’s next and last comedy in the “Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy“, The World’s End.  The World’s End will follow 5 best friends on a legendary pub crawl that they could not finish back in their teenager days. They must go to 12 pubs and have 12 pints, ending their run in The World’s End pub.  However, it seems like a lot has changed since they had last been to that little town where the pub crawl takes place.  It even feels like a different planet… (more…)
