Five years after the original Pacific Rim released, the world is treated to the second Pacific Rim film, Pacific Rim: Uprising. Starring John Boyega (Finn in the new Star Wars films) as Jake Pentecost, son of Stacker Pentecost (Idris Elba), the hero of the first Pacific Rim. Jake is a troubled young adult.
He’s been in trouble with the law. He’s tried to go his own way. Only to be arrested by the police and forced to train and lead a new generation of Jaeger pilots.
When all hell breaks loose because of a new threat, Jake has to truly step up and lead the way. Much like his father did.
Hang onto your hats kids, Pacific Rim: Uprising brings you action, adventure, and a lot of fun. You’ll also find plenty of leadership lessons in Pacific Rim: Uprising.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi didn’t disappoint me. The Last Jedi tells the story of Rey (Daisy Ridley) pursuing Luke Skywalker (Mark Hammill) to train her in the Jedi ways. Luke is a broken man after Kylo Ren/Ben Solo (Adam Driver) destroyed the Jedi training center Luke had built and killed most of the Jedi students. Luke didn’t want to take on another apprentice for fear he would rise up another dark Jedi. The Last Jedi also tells the story of the Rebel Alliance as they flee from The First Order, a newly formed military power similar to The Empire.
