Title: Pacific Rim

From what I've read of the plot it's pretty generic super robot plot.... Monsters threaten humanity and they create mechs to fight them, the MC uses a legendary but seemingly obsolete robot that may turn the tide of battle.... Also Del Toro says that it'll have everything you can imagine of a film with giant robots and new stuff too.... I hope he realises that bar has been set pretty damn high by Gainax let alone every other studio.... That's like impossible to deliver on judging by the trailer.... Still I'm curious about this....

Trust Guillermo Del Toro to finally bring the mecha genre to Western live action.

Ron Perlman and kaiju mean this will be impossible for me to not like in some fashion.

Can I just say how unreasonably excited I am for this movie? Also is it weird I'll be rooting for the monsters probably? I always did when I was younger and that's probably not gonna change.

There's a drive-in about forty minutes from me. If they play this, it must be seen there.

According to The Pulse Of Radio, RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE guitarist Tom Morello has teamed up with "Game Of Thrones" composer Ramin Djawadi to contribute to the score of "Pacific Rim" ... Morello told Rolling Stone, "When they asked me to put some giant robot riffs and screaming underwater monster licks on the film score, I was all in."

Also, this movie was dedicated to Ray Harryhausen and Ishiro Honda, if that wasn't already known.

I ended up going to see this today. Very pretty film. I thought Charlie Day had some particularly amusing moments.
Charlie Day is manic as fuck in this.

And yeah. I keep saying it, but this film is absolute eyecandy.

I stayed through the whole credits to see this and when it came up I was filled with more joy than I could describe.

I was supremely pleased by the resolution of Perlman's character personally.

My only wish is that the category V kaiju got more screen time.

I want a new War of the Monsters type game after seeing Gypsy Danger dragging that boat. and a Pacific Rim arcade game.

Would've loved to see more straight up fights like in Hong Kong. I get that the movie needs a compelling narrative built around the fights, but even still.

Post by: ganonfloyd on 23 July, 2013, 10:44:22 pm
War of the Monsters makes me smile so much. There really should be more giant monster fighting games.

It's a shame the whole movie was just a blatant rip off of Atlantic Rim.

But for serious, this movie kicked ass. There was cheering in the theater.

I'm just going to pretend that Pacific Rim was the entire reason you showed up here again.

And that just makes it all the more awesome to me.

Gaffit's exact thought process: Wow, this is a really cool movie about monster's fighting robots! Wait a second... Fighting... Also known Brawling... Brawling... Brawl... O_O Oh my God.

And now I'm here.
