Pacific Rim

Saw Pacific Rim today with the team.  I enjoyed the movie and had a great time hanging out with the gang offsite. 

Oh, and I did this silly drawing, too.

Sounds like a fun flick. Right up my alley. Dig the drawing.

Were the Monsters good? Did they give you long looks at them or were they always Cloverfield quick?

You can see my bruised cheekbone in the "Yellow" vid.

Giant Polar Bear Robot Attack! Love how good you are at spontaneously mashing things together. Happy that Pacific Rim was good and glad that your company likes to promote company spirit by taking you to these things!

The event was a celebration of sorts... we submitted 2 games to the Apple Store to test in Canada. We are going to see if our monetization plans are going to be effective or if we need to tweak them some. Once we get the games where we like them then we'll do US releases.

Pacific Rim:
You get a better look at the monsters in PR than in Cloverfield, but sadly all of the monster fights happen at night and sometimes in the rain. So, you never get a really good look at them, but you can tell the general look of the thing.

As with a lot of action movies, the ending doesn't live up to the promise of everything that has come before, but all in all it was fun time at the movies. I never found myself thinking "enough with the people stuff, let's get back to the monsters!", which is a good sign.

I may go see it. Let me count my loose change. Got my first check from Avis. Getting a little catch up done. And just had a phone interview for Home depot for almost twice as much money.
That's worth wasting some money movie on.

Tom Moon said...

Double the money. Great! Doesn't Home Depot have a pretty good reputation as an employer?

MrGoodson2 said...

Tom Carrol is working for them and likes it.

I'd plan on getting a discount and re-doing my Mom's Bathroom.

Right now it's being held together by mold.

Need new drywall and shower enclosure. And the tricky plumbing part.

MrGoodson2 said...

We'll see. The job is for a "designer."
Which from the gobbeldy goop description seems to mean selling people the right kits for DIY work.
The phone interviews these employers do are jokes.
Very, very tired interviewers giving out boilerplate HR stuff you have to react to in a Miss America verbal skill moment.
I'll get it if I get it.

MrGoodson2 said...

I'll continue to dig my cool "go cart" job until then

Tom Moon said...

Just don't provide YouTube with another "Russian Truck Accident" video!

MrGoodson2 said...

Racific Rim is not getting a big response.
Sandler and Despicable Me2 out doing it.
Saw one review that summed up the low expectation satisfaction of someone that would go to Pacific Rim. "It was great even with the two horrible leads."
You can't have a really good movie experience with something terribly cast.

MrGoodson2 said...

Another one of those qualified tweet reviews "Pacific Rim- outstanding spectacle, everything you want and more." but he adds " Could have done without the heavy handed sentimental shite."

Love it!

p.s. I saw the movie again with none other than Agent Kaiju hisself, Jimmy Gorham. Only differences to the audience test version I saw months ago was MAYBE a shot or two snipped from final battle, and a line or two of dialogue snipped from the guy/girl talk on the bridge after their near-disastrous trial run.

But hey, who out there in geek land will be the first to approach a girl with the line, " think we might be drift compatible?"
