The Hellboy movies SHOULD have sucked, but instead those movies are pretty awesome and he did a great job putting them into film, IMO.  The visuals are amazing and I think he delivers on what to expect from a movie on this.  Pans is amazing and you can't even make a decision on his career without seeing this movie, come on.  

 

That being said, Bruck had some good stuff too.

Agreed about Hellboy... I do not own the movie or talk about it ever..but when it is on I am drawn to it visually bc the creature design and all are unique and I love the Del Toro worlds.

The Devil's Backbone is also great...his horror and fantasy in his native tounge is his greatest creation.

Chris Nolan, QT, Del Toro all are content producers as well as stylized directors and that is what should be supported. They create worlds and have their style...Del Toro needs a domestic Pan's Lab bc merican's dont like reading... He would have made me go watch the Hobbit if he got to direct it...but it would have been dark.

i don't expect it to be a deep movie.  

wrong...

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mariana_Trench

 

The Mariana Trench or Marianas Trench[1] is the deepest part of the world's oceans. It is located in the western Pacific Ocean, to the east of the Mariana Islands. The trench is about 2,550 kilometres (1,580 mi) long but has an average width of only 69 kilometres (43 mi). It reaches a maximum-known depth of 10.911 km (10,911 ± 40 m) or 6.831 mi (36,069 ± 131 ft) at the Challenger Deep, a small slot-shaped valley in its floor, at its southern end,[2] although some unrepeated measurements place the deepest portion at 11.03 kilometres (6.85 mi).[3]

I completely shot this down as a Michael Bay Robo-tech meets Godzilla, until I saw that del Toro was directing. That alone causes me to think I'll at least watch it, probably not until Redbox or HBO, but I'll give it a shot at least.

 

Plus, even if it's a bit role, it has Ron Perlman. I'm convinced.

I think some times we forget directors were once kids/teens and there were toys and games and movies that influenced them.

PR reminds me of the Shogun warrior toys a bit. I also think Tantric is onto something about the Mech stuff.

To me this film is total escapism.

Hellboy 2 was a pretty damn awful movie, there's no sugar coating that. Sorry.

I'm cautiously optimistic about this movie though, I'll likely see it in theatres.

Pacific Rim is the ultimate otaku film that all of us had always been waiting for. Who are you, if you are Japanese and won't watch this?

 

This film is not simply a film to be respected, but most importantly, it let us dream the future of entertainment movies.

I saw a pre-screening of Pacific Rim yesterday and it's easily one of my favorite movies of all time.

 

 

This is not another "Robot" movie. Guillermo del Toro is a master.
