  • Review: Pacific Rim | tomjupiter
    by two pilots who are connected in a nifty drift neural interface thing and have to be super compatible Our hero is Raleigh Beckett Charlie Hunnam who is dragged back to piloting his Jaeger Gipsy Danger following his brother s death by tough military man Stacker Pentecost Idris Elba Beckett is teamed with Mako Mori Rinko Kikuchi and Gipsy Danger is sent back into the fray So yeah the names do give you an idea of just how deep these characters are written They re a mixture of pastiche and stereotype which I know has annoyed a fair few folks Personally I see it as fitting neatly in the genre that Del Toro is clearly as much in love with as me Having said that part of me does wish more had been done with these characters and the relationship between Beckett and Mori lacks chemistry Perhaps a little more time with them would have helped The action sequences are second to none Put all of those horrible headache inducing TRANSFORMERS fights out of your mind Del Toro proves himself a much maturer director than Michael Bay and lets the spectacle work for itself I could feel the size of the Kaiju and Jaegers and appreciate the huge power that each held The world created for PACIFIC RIM is set a few years into our future and although a B movie world it feels properly lived in and as if everyone had a lot of fun theorising just how things would change if giant monsters did start to attack There is a definite Asian theme to some of the film which suits the genre well 3 Yes some of it is basic and relies on stereotypes If this is the beginning of a new franchise then this could all be

  • Review: Love Exposure | tomjupiter
    a daily basis and is not happy until his son confesses to sins Yu being a young normal seventeen year old has little to confess to For a while he has to squeeze out sins but this is not adequate So in an attempt to bond with his father he begins to purposefully sin Eventually he perfects the art of peek a panty photos which has him branded as a pervert This proves enough to truly enrage his father All perverts were created equal Throughout this there is a constant countdown to the miracle which happens almost exactly half way through the film This is the moment that Yu meets his Maria Yoko Hikari Mitsushima They fall in love instantly The only problem is that Yu is dressed as a woman called Miss Scorpion at the time and is completely unrecognisable Jesus I approve of you as the only cool man besides Kurt Cobain The third strand in the film and the one that holds most sway over the second half of the film is the story of Koike Sakura Ando who has been manipulating events and characters in order to bring the family into her Zero Church cult Love Exposure is asking questions of love sex and passion There is an analysis of faith and sin religion and identity There is more than a touch of disillusioned and abandoned youth which Sono would go on to look at even more in Himuzu Gender sexuality broken families parenthood also get tackled with There is a lot going on here The Zero Church have their own agenda And a bird The film plays across several genres and goes from comedy to thriller and back again There are jokes about erections mixed in with much darker scenes It looks great throughout with

  • Review: Himizu | tomjupiter
    they rent out boats for a living Their relationship is strained at best Indeed Sumida gets on better with the rag tag collection of people outside who have been made homeless by the tsunami It is not long before his mother leaves His father has also left and returns every so often money Generally incredibly drunk he will beat Sumida and tell him how much he wishes his son hadn t been born Sumida begins to crack Keiko Fumi Neikado is in Sumida s class and has a crush on him She identifies with his desire to simply be normal and sets out to win his affection Keiko s parents are planning to kill her and are building gallows at home with which to hang her Himizu takes a very harsh view on the way that Japanese society is looking after the younger generation Parents in the film are selfish inept or murderous The teacher and television commentators keep repeating that things will be okay despite evidence to the contrary and have lost any authority The only section of society that is thriving is the criminal underworld who are feeding off the panic and destruction For many characters the tsunami wasn t simple a disaster it was the apocalypse they have lost everything and will never recover Himizu uses shots of destroyed towns to really bring home how real the damage is Characters imagine themselves walking amongst the ruins This frames the entire film and give the story being told some real gravity The sound work is also excellent The music has been carefully chosen Beyond this though rumbles and tones clicks and other noises provide a texture and intensity to the film that would otherwise be missing I had worried that this would be lost outside of a cinema
