Pacific Rim... worth watching?

Postby Droakir » Tue Aug 27, 2013 5:30 pm

Howdy folks!

The movie Pacific Rim is coming to the dollar theater pretty soon, and I was wondering... has anybody seen it? And if so, is it worth watching?

Cheers!

YES.

In my opinion, Pacific Rim is the perfect movie. It was beautiful and action packed, and presented a very well crafted world in an exciting way. Also, although it doesn't pass the Bechdel test, the female lead is independent and strong, except for one scene which was so unnecessary it made me want to scream.

I liked it. The slow bits are slow, but the action sequences are some my favorites I have seen in years. Plus Guillermo Del Toro's effects design is great no matter what the project.

I think you would dig it! I felt it really knew what kind of movie it was and excelled at it. The effects were top notch by todays standards and because of that when I watched RIPD a few days later the effects felt less blended into the live action.

Pete's point about it "knowing what kind of movie it is" is a good one. Pacific Rim understands what kind of story telling it excels at and sticks with it.

Well that's certainly good to know! Looks like I'm going to have to head to the theater soon and check out the show. How was RIPD?

R.I.P.D.
Jeff Bridges had some funny moments I thought.
It felt similar to Men In Black.
I thought it was ok over all and had some really funny moments with Jeff Bridges and even James Hong.
I usually don't card for Ryan Reynolds, but if Jeff Bridges wasn't in it I would have passed on watching it.
Kevin Bacon plays a good sleazeball.

Kick-Ass 2 on the other hand! Holy KAARRRRAP!
If you liked the first one I think you'll like the 2nd.
I'll keep it vague and not spoil anything.
I might have liked it more then the first movie.
Of course it was violent but less violent then the comics.
Other wise it might have been content rated NC-17.
Somethings were changed but I dug it still.
