13 Things About Pacific Rim

1. Pacific Rim is perfectly amazing.

2. Pacific Rim gets right into the heart of the story.

3. The cast was picked perfectly for each part.

4. Kajiu (giant monsters) were scary and big and awesome

5. Jaegers (giant robots) were massive and kickass

6. The music wasn’t the normal Transformers/ Inception music.

7. As a person that loves It’s Always Sunny I was happy to see Charlie Day. (he was also so perfectly picked)

8. Ron Perlman…enough said.

9. Idris Elba…enough said.

10. Kickass female character that doesn’t have to use sex to be kickass

11. Totally unpredictable and many times you find yourself asking how are they going to get themselves out

of this one.

12. We are very far into the future in this movie and yet, there’s still paper & chalkboards being used.

13. This was a really fast placed movie that had so much detail. It all goes by so quickly. I feel like this could have been a trilogy because there’s a lot that could be further explained or we could have a deeper understanding of characters. I say this all as an author and not a screenwriter. I did find out that there is a prequel graphic novel that is supposed to explain more of the details for anyone that wants more. LOL

Enjoy!

The Swastika Tattoo BOOK REVIEW

The Swastika Tattoo by Geraldine Birch

4 1/2 out of 5 read rating

BOOK SUMMARY:

A YA historical novel, The Swastika Tattoo is the story of Rudolf Meier, a young German prisoner of war whose love for Nazi Germany is as visible as the swastika tattoo on his forearm. After Rudolf and his U-boat (submarine) crewmates are captured by an American destroyer, Rudolf is sent to a POW camp in Arizona where he labors picking cotton for a Jewish farmer. It is there that he comes face-to-face with the bigotry and intolerance he learned as a Hitler Youth. Through long months of internment, his only joy is his friendship with the farmer’s son who shows him the true meaning of humanity, individualism and democracy. Then, just as his repatriation to Germany is in sight, a murder in the camp makes Rudolf realize he may be the next target of the hard-core Nazis who really control the Arizona prison camp.
