Pacific Rim: “The Money Shot”

Despite the bizarre (though sadly predictable) rash of internet naysayers who seem intent on burying Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim before it even premieres, I am so looking forward to this. The following video shows you, at least in part, why.

As for those who insist on comparing it to Transformers, try to get some sort of historical perspective before you open your digital mouth and make a complete ass of yourself. Read an article on Japanese mecha, for example!

And incidentally, Pacific Rim isn’t Neon Genesis Evangelion any more than Neon Genesis Evangelion is Gundam. Or High Noon is The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. Or Buffy the Vampire Slayer is Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter.

  1. I saw Pacific Rim today. The movie was clearly made for my inner 12 year old and that kid left the theater with a smile on his face. My only complaint about was the 3D but that’s an easy one to get around. Next time I see it I’ll just go see a regular show.

    Actually, David, I can’t comment on the 3D. I went to a 2D showing. I don’t like 3D at all and tend to avoid it. Just a distraction and a diminishing of the quality of the image. The 2D looked great!
