Looks good. Hopefully there isn't too much China Pandaring like what Transformers Age of Extinction did.

With Legendary now owned by the Chinese conglomerate Wanda, you can bet there'll be plenty of China pandering!

^I hope not.

Anyway, Legendary finally released the Official Trailer.

The more I watch this trailer, the more it feels like it's aiming at a younger, teenage audience rather than young adults and adults proper like the previous movie did.

Pacific Rim goes Nickelodeon, as I said...

Anyway, I expect Guillermo's touch to make way for more explosions and CG action. I have nothing against Boyega, but as a gung-ho teen he seems a poor replacement for either Idris Elba and his natural gravitas or Charlie Hunnam.

Well, most of the mecha anime genre that the movie paid homage to is targeted for younguns (even children, if you count ye olde "super robot fighting giant monsters"-shows) with teenagers as pilots, especially post Gunbuster & Evangelion.

I have no problem with the show's intended audience as long as the narrative is good and has no more cringey dialogues like in the first one. Also, I like that they retained one of the most fun part of the original characters: the off-the-wall scientists .

One thing that obviously missing though is Guillermo's style and art in building a set and framing-executing a shot. It's like Uprising has no personality of its own aside from walking in in its predecessor's footsteps. At least as far as the trailer is concerned. Heck, I think Kong: Skull Island has more style and personality. But of course I'll be happy to be proven wrong when the movie premier on my local cinema.

To be fair, Pacific Rim was also seemingly aiming for the younger audiences since most of its trailers were action shots. It wasn't until the film came out that we had nicely done introspective/drama/conversations scenes that proves that the movies is more than that.

My biggest concern is that hopefully, the other Jaegers get more than one chance to shine instead of getting ganked early on.

Also, Stacker Pentecost is a goddamn legend. Kinda hard to tops - or even come close - to that.

Pacific Rim: Uprising is getting snapkit Plamo from Bandai next year!!!!!

HG Gipsy Avenger


HG Bracer Phoenix


HG Obsidian Fury


Not masterpieces, but they are in High Grade quality, complete with the articulation and features Gunpla is known for. Odd that they didn't have Saber Athena among the first batch, but this is still nice.

One scene could be considered a spoiler. View at your own risk.

Just watched it. It was alright, having adjusted my expectations based on the trailers.

Spoiler for heavy spoilers for the movie:


I could go on but I reckon this is enough for spoilers. There is one key development which I felt heavily disappointed but it's quite important so I'll stop here. Worth watching if you enjoyed the first movie but it's nothing spectacular.

For me, the movie is... well, while not great like the first one was (to me, again), it does hold up on its own quite well.

that Unicorn Gundam statue cameo, though not the actual Odaiba one as that version appears to be a non-transforming just caste in entirely grey molding.

Or they just had it in Unicorn form for this scene in the movie, since it looks more epic that way.

I'm actually surprised how much I liked it, despite almost put off by all the negativity I almost didn't watch it.

The one person stanning for this movie was Huber from EZA and I'm glad I took his advise above others like Mother's Basement.

I'm surprised that the four most talked about negatives in this movie I actually didn't have a problem with- I wasn't bummed out by [character] death, I wasn't negatively affected by the teenagers, I didn't mind [character] heel, and I actually like the fight scenes better in this one.
