This is somewhat extreme but watch how this Canadian couple chose financial independence over home ownership.  They are in their 30s and,...

A movie: Pacific Rim.

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

Watched Pacific Rim this evening. I guess I went in with lots of expectations because I have heard so many good things about it from friends. It was good but I wasn't wowed by it.

Took a photo of this standee outside the cinema.

The story is kind of predictable. I mean I could guess who were going to die and who would live in the end. I think more effort could have gone into fleshing out the story too. It was a little bit weak.

There was this scene where a Jaeger (human controlled robot) used what looked like a bulk carrier, a ship as a club to hammer a Kaiju (monster). Watch the scene in the trailer (about 2 minutes 4 seconds into the trailer):

At that point in time, a question came into my head. I wondered which shipyard might have built that ship. It was so sturdy! Didn't break into half when it clobbered the Kaiju.

Anyone knows the answer?

Hi Ray,

A perfect answer for a rhetorical question. LOL.

A CGI class ship? ;p

Hollywood - Where the impossible happens.

Just like Doraemon's toys which cannot be explained by science. Of couse, there are a few of his toys eventually invented but not 100% identical.

Hi INVS 2.0,

When I was little, I wished I had a Doraemon! Haha...

Interesting comparison. :)

Hmm have not watch but also have this qn, did they explain why nuclear weapons were not used?

As for which shipyard, I hope it's YZJ muahahaha, because I vested. ( just my nonsense)

Hi silly investor,

They did use nuclear weapons at the end. Go watch it! :D

YZJ is in better shape than Cosco, I believe. ;)

I'm holding several lots of Cosco, and sad to hear that :(

But it's true. YZJ's giving much higher dividends. I got my cosco around 5 years ago, been through ups and downs.

Just hope shipping industry will recover soon.
