When I first heard about Pacific Rim, I wasn’t sold on the whole “monsters vs. robots” thing, but you know what? It’s pretty fun. Here’s my review from a while back:
Better late than never, right? Pacific Rim’s been out a while (since mid-July), but I just now got around to checking it out. I’ve gotta say—I thought the trailer for this looked stupid. Like, painfully stupid. So stupid that I never in a million years thought I would pay a cent to go see it in theaters. And now here I am biting my tongue.

I love Guillermo del Torro and I give him a lot of leeway. I get that sometimes you have to deviate from really artistic, thought provoking films and make a movie about giant robots! I thought this was pretty good for what it was. That being said, you are right, the premise is pretty ridiculous at times. Haha! Still pretty fun though
I’m totally with you, Mel. It’s one of those “shut off your brain and just enjoy the thing, dammit” movies. Hahaha. Fortunately, I was able to do that for most of this. Glad you had some fun with it, too! 🙂
Pacific Rim was indeed fun but I feel Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla was a superior – ahem – ‘beast’!
Ha! I see whatcha did there. 😉 And I totally agree.
Better than Godzilla, at least! 🙂
Um. I actually liked Godzilla better. Haha.
That’s okay. I forgive you. 😉
Bahaha well as long as I have your forgiveness. 😉
