Man, Machines and Monsters – Pacific Rim Companion Book

DIANA CASTLE

From Pacific Rim – Man, Machines & Monsters

So I’m over at my local library and, lo and behold, I come across this really cool book. It’s the companion book to the movie Pacific Rim. It’s called Man, Machines & Monsters. Written by David S. Cohen. the foreword is written by the film’s director, Guillermo Del Toro.

I’ve come across my share of companion books for movies. As a matter of fact, I own most of the companion books that came out when the three movies in the Lord of the Rings Trilogy were released. Not only are companion books great for all that cool, behind-the-scenes info, but they’re usually also gorgeously illustrated.

Man, Machines and Monsters is no exception. It’s a big, glossy coffee-table sized book chock-full of photos and illustrations and lots of info about the world of Pacific Rim and what went into creating it for the movie…

Awesome Cosplay of the Day: 3/16/14

The Caffeine Crew

The devil is always in the details when it comes to any work of art and no less with cosplay (this is the cause of my current anxiety, since I’m trying to figure out this crazy makeup thing, but I digress…) Today’s cosplay is Megara from Disney’s Hercules, a story that they…kinda altered just a little. I still enjoyed it, probably because by the time I saw their watered down version I was old enough to know the original mythology behind it. So I give it a pass.

Her makeup is absolutely flawless and her hair is pretty much as close to the cartoon as you’re going to get with the physics of reality (another one of my serious considerations, but…goddamn it SN stay on point!)

LOVE TO READ – HOW HARRY POTTER CHANGED THE WORLD

SERENDIPITY

Recently I saw the 8th and final Harry Potter movie on Blue Ray DVD. In an introduction to the movie celebrated author of the seven Harry Potter books, J.K. Rowling, talked about the 13 year adventure from the time the first Harry Potter book was published until the time the 8th movie was finished. In case you did not know, the 7th book was long and made into two movies. They probably should have made books five and six into two movies each, but I digress.

harryPotter

The really remarkable thing about the series was not that it made eight movies, turned Daniel Radcliffe into one of the richest people in England and Rowling into a Billionaire. It is not that Radcliffe and his costars, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson, are now the most famous wizards of all time, or even that a wonderful theme park was opened in Florida to…

The Great Gatsby 1974 and 2013

Bored, well lets watch something!

thegreatgatsby Two movie miles apart in some ways and very familiar in other.
1974 Robert Redford & Mia Farrow, it had memorable music more appropriate for the movie at the time.
2013 Leonardo DiCaprio & Carey Mulligan, although I like this version of the movie, the music didn’t do it for me.
But they are worth watching to understand F. Scott Fitzgerald sad story about love in the 20’s.
