Transformers Prime – Beast Hunters – Predacons Rising

Chronicles the epic battle between the Decepticons and the Autobots in their mission to defend Earth and one day restore their home planet of Cybertron.

This is a sweet ending to the Transformers Prime series, it has been an amazing series with a fantastic storyline development with this 60 minute movie being the perfect final twist. With the end of the series I wasn’t satisfied but with this I was, but I can’t get enough of Peter Cullen, his voice will forever be the guiding voice of Optimus Prime. I couldn’t believe the ending, but I won’t ruin it for anyone but it was a hell of a final battle. I hope that Transformers continue on its success with the new movie and then another animation comes out, since this new one has a lot based on the next stage of the Transformers. If you enjoyed the series you will love this short movie.

In order to adapt to the environment in space and deal with the hostile aliens in Jupiter, genetically engineered children called “Princes” are artificially raised and trained to be pilots of armed robots “AHSMB (Advanced High Standard Multipurpose Battle Device). This is a story about one of the teenage “Princes”, Hitachi O Izuru, who studies in an academic city Grandzehle.

MajesticPrince2

One of the funner Mecha Animes from this season, I do enjoy most Mecha shows just because I love Mecha anime so much but this one had a great story and I loved the development in it. The characters were serious but fun, they were in a difficult spot but I love how the machines turned out to be a lot more then just machines, an extension of the pilot themselves. As the show progresses more and more is revealed about the Wulgaru, and it just keeps getting more intense. A very well done mecha anime with a decent story line and awesome mechas. I honestly love the combination of CG and drawing in this anime, it is an excellent mix, for any Mecha fan you will enjoy this.

Review: Elysium

Elysium2

Set in the year 2154, where the very wealthy live on a man-made space station while the rest of the population resides on a ruined Earth, a man takes on a mission that could bring equality to the polarized worlds.

Elysium1

I honestly didn’t know what to expect in the movie, except that it is a dramatic science fiction movie starring Matt Damon. I liked the trailer so I jumped right in, this is about Earth going to crap and the elite moving to an earth station orbiting around earth in the perfect world. The robots in this movie were cool and realistic, and people were going to extremes to get to Elysium. The surprise for me wasn’t just the story, it was the other star of this movie who played the bad guy perfectly, Sharlto Copley (From District 9). He made the movie insane and thrilling, above and beyond what I was initially expecting and that made it that much better.

AMP – SciFi Short

10 years after leaving a war his father started, Quinn and Amp live in the slums selling illegal custom-tech just to afford the batteries that keep Amp alive. When an old childhood friend tracks him down, Quinn is confronted with the dilemma of choosing to remain idle in a city run by the corrupt Coreley Corporation or finally finish the war he never wanted to be a part of.

I love short movies like these with Robots involved, and this one looks very cool, even better then what I was expecting, its over the top and I love it! Loved the character of the Robot and the special effects and impressive for a short.

Sideshow Collectibles – Pacific Rim

SideshowPacificRim01

Sideshow Collectibles are one of the Best creators of Models and Memorabilia out there. They create the best collectibles of our favorite characters and icons from the worlds of film, television, comic books and popular culture. There are other cool manufacturers out there, but not as good as Sideshow Collectibles. As for Comic-Con that is the biggest convention of Pop Culture in the world which takes place in San Diego, and in these pictures are the models for Pacific Rim which I loved. I usually try to get my hands on any Robot Memorabilia out there like Transformers, Reel Steel, and now Pacific Rim.

SideshowPacificRim02

Above is Gypsy Danger, one of the heroes of Pacific Rim, a Third Generation Jaeger meant to kick the Kaiju back to where they came from. The movie revolves around it’s main operator and it is one hell of a robot, and Sideshow made one very cool model of it, and its already available for PreOrder which I placed with AlterEgoComics. It’s rare to get such a high quality robot piece and this one looks to be one hell of a Jaeger just from the pictures at Comic-Con

SideshowPacificRim03

This was a surprise for me, another Jaeger, Striker Eureka, “the strongest and the fastest” Jaeger with 11 Kaiju kills, and make up the Resistance’s “go-to team”. It was one very cool looking Jaeger, and now that Sideshow has developed it into one very cool looking model I love it. It’s not up for PreOrder yet, but when it is, I am ordering it. The pair of Jaegers will look good together, and it will give me something to enjoy while I wait for Del Toro to come up with the sequel for Pacific Rim which revolves around Drifting. If you haven’t seen the movie, you should go see it.

Review: Pacific Rim

PR1

As a war between humankind and monstrous sea creatures wages on, a former pilot and a trainee are paired up to drive a seemingly obsolete special weapon in a desperate effort to save the world from the apocalypse.

PACIFIC RIM

This honestly could not get any cooler, for the first time they made an amazing Robot vs. Monsters movie, not how bad they made Godzilla. Guillermo del Toro knew what he was doing when he put this movie together, he is known for his pop culture movies, but this one looks like it will go mainstream and I hope from the success of this movie that they make more Giant Robot & Monster Movies. The movie is clear, people are fighting for their lives against these monsters which are out to wipe out human kind while they take over the world and the only tool they have are these giant robots. I love the mount of nerdy and sci-fi details that Guillermo brings to his movies, and Pacific Rim is no different, but when Del Toro does it you really understand it. These robots are reason enough to watch the movie, loved it.

PACIFIC RIM

Pacific Rim – Trailer

Holy Crap this movie is going to be EPIC!!! I can’t wait to see it, Giant Monsters invading earth and human’s built Giant Robots to fight them, THIS CAN’T GET ANY BETTER!!! Can’t wait to see this movie! I can’t wait to see what Guillermo del Toro has up his sleeve!

When an alien attack threatens the Earth’s existence, giant robots piloted by humans are deployed to fight off the menace.

The Prototype – Trailer

The folks behind Act of Valor are going scifi. Check out their first trailer for their mandroid film The Prototype. So far, this looks good! The movie follows a humanoid robot — who appears to be linked with his government scientist creator in some way — who escapes from its cargo hold and goes “rogue.”

Now this looks like a very cool movie. I love movies like these!

Review: Mazinkaizer SKL

The latest installment of one of the most popular Anime series around the world. Above Japan waits Remuria, a colossal floating islandleftover from the last world war. It s a lawless wasteland of robot super-weapons from a forgotten age of military might. Receiving word that the unstable island s reactors might explode and vaporize Japan at any time, the Japanese government awakens the most destructive force ever devised MazinKaiser!

This 3 episode OVA is AWESOME, no other words can describe it. The story of this OVA is very weak and there’s barely any character development, but what this OVA lacks in story and character development, it makes up for with probably the Most Awesome Mecha fight scenes that are almost as amazing as the mecha fight scenes in Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. The story here is really just an excuse to show these Awesome fight scenes and that alone is enough to overlook the OVA’s flaws and consider it to be one of the best OVAs I have seen in a while.. Now if you want a mecha show that has a deep story with strong character development and where the Mech’s have a more significant meaning to the show’s story, then this OVA is not for you, but if you want some Hardcore Mech fight scenes, than this OVA is definitely for you. Now I remember why I loved Mazinger Z, Mazinkaiser, and Grendaizer as a kid, these amazing fights make me want to jump right into the robot. Lets hope they come up with a continuation or more episodes.
