Pacific Rim


I'm usually a massive fan of Guillermo del Toro and his films and he has directed this one, but I'm very disappointed with the trailer, looks nothing special at all. I'm hoping it's a case of bad trailer for what turns out to be a good film.

Yeah, but it's del Toro! To whatever degree it might look like something else, you know his fingerprints are gonna be on it.

Pretty excited about this. Monsters = good. Monsters + giant robots = lkjkljeklj23ljk112#$#[email protected]!.

My 8-year-old enjoyed it, but to me it looked like a really expensive Anime. Not because it's giant mechs fighting giant monsters, but because it's so much CGI. I'm sorry, but these days I'm having a harder time investing myself heavily into overly CG films.

two can keep a secret, if one of them is dead..
This movie is going to be what Mighty Morphin Power Rangers should have been.
now that's all I'm going to see it as ! ah well, I'm gonna see it; just cause
a) It's Guillermo Del Toro; and after Tim Burton, he's my favorite director
b) looks super exciting and
c) it's gonna be what MightyMorphinPowerRangers should have been.

Smells mystical, doesn't it?
Ehhh.. I'll Probably watch it for Charlie Day.
Let's talk some jive.

I just came up with "Godzilla"

Is it me or do a lot of trailers these days have this "bwaaaah" as a soundtrack?

"Don't be so gloomy. After all it's not that awful. Like the fella says, in Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love - they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock."

Young Skywalker. Missed you, I have...
I think the trailer for this one looks really good! But, that is coming from someone who really enjoyed Battleship, so....take that however you will.
You are no Vader. You are just a child in a mask.

If Guillermo Del Toro can't pull off a compelling movie about giant robots fighting monsters, no one can pull off a compelling movie about giant robots fighting monsters. Here's hoping for once that the story actually lives up the the amount of money dropped on special effects.

I'm kind of with dooms, in that it reminded me of the 1998 Godzilla when they show the prehistoric creature going after the bridge. I'll cop to enjoying the '98 'Zilla because I'm a huge Godzilla fan to begin with, but also I thought it was a fun flick, although with atrocious dialogue and the girl who played Matthew Broderick's girlfriend. But I didn't go to see it for the dialogue. I wanted a huge monster bashing the city and the military after it and that's pretty much what I got. But, I digress.

The trailer looks like a mix between Godzilla and a Transformers movie. I don't know if that's good or bad, but with Del Toro behind it, I'm more than willing to give it a try. So, I am looking forward to it.
