Waits for Zod's apologetic diatribe for giant alien lizards.

I'm trying to find a Tbox slant for this....

but giant human controlled robots fighting giant monsters.....I'm in!!!!

 

i just get tired of seeing fighter jets doing fly-bys....why would they ever get within a miles of the target i don't know. Strafing the target with guns?....looks cool but it is a pet peeve of mine in films.

The only problem with this movie is Charlie Hunnam.
 
The dude is so one note that he makes Kristen Stewart, Keaneu Reeves, and Micheal Cera look like actual actors.

And here, I submit, is the mark of great director:

 

Last night, gf and I are watching TV. Trailer for Pacific Rim comes on. We watch for 30 seconds. Trailer ends, and gf remarks how fugging stupid it looks, and she has no interest in seeing it. Shrugs her shoulders at the pathetic offering of summer movies. In the rant that follows, the names "Battleship," "Transformers" and "G.I. Joe" get bandied about. I tell her generally I would agree. However, I am still giving the movie a chance because the director isn't Michael Bay, it's not a Jerry Bruckheimer productions; it's Guillermo del Toro. Her eyes go wide, she stares blankly back at the TV, obviously playing the trailer over again in her head, except now taking into account the GDT slant. She remarks, "I must admit I'm slightly intrigued now." Within another minute we have already decided that we are locked in to see this movie.

 

And that's when I realized that GDT is an amazing director, if not the best director working today. No other director could do that, I think. No other director could make you look at a movie that looks like total trash, and then totally change your opinion of if because of his name alone. Not Spielberg, not Scorsese, not Allen. No one else could convince me wholesale that a movie that looks like crap is actually worth seeing. No one else would I give the benefit of the doubt. Only Guillermo del Toro.

 

He doesn't make the best movies. He doesn't make the highest grossing movies, but he's got a rare skill; the ability to bring you into his imagination and let you crawl around in there for a while. And I can't wait to see what he throws at us next.

that's weird because I felt the exact same way when I first saw the trailer, then my friend told me del Toro was directing and I completely changed my thoughts on the movie

probably the only movie i'll bother seeing in the theaters this summer

 

another director that could do this flick and i'd go see it in a heartbeat is christopher nolan (but i didn't watch inception cuz its dumb)

 

but yes, this concept by any other directors in hollywood is absolute traaaaaash

I really hope this doesn't flop like most movies similar to it.

 

Generally hate these types of movies, superhero and comic book type action/fantasy films, but del Toro? Come on now. Pan's Labyrinth will be the reason I will probably go and see this movie.

Its 130 minute run time doesn't help, and the premise will turn a lot of casual movie-goers off.

 

I hope it does well though and del Toro has only gotten better.  Weighing a midnight showing.

There is a subtle Mech trend in District 9, Avatar and now with this...thank you video Games to introducing america to things the Japaneese have enjoyed since the 70's.

Amazing how slow Hollywood is to adopt these concepts.

This movie...I AM SO EXCITED!!!

 

I mean, when I first saw the trailers forever ago, I was like "A non-crappy Gozdilla homage?"  Then it became the destruction pr0n that Transformers should have been AND a homage to Godzilla movies!!!

 

I don't expect much of a story, or anything in the way of constipated faces on the screen between the massive amount of crap being wrecked.  I just want my eyeballs melted, my brain pummeled, and an idiot's grin on my face when the credits roll.

 

I finally feel like there is a movie truely worth the cost of going to the movies for the bombastic audio and 2 story video...

 

Yes, I am easily entertained, and I LOVE Del Torro's work.  Pan's Labyrinth was one of my favorites!
