    Do you guys think Pacific Rim is ok for an 8 year old? I took the boy to see Iron Man 3 a couple months back, and kinda wished I hadn't because of how dark some of the scenes were. Needless to say I am a bit apprehensive about PG-13 films now. Feel free to PM me if you don't wanna spoil the movie in this thread.

    If your 8 year old was disturbed by IM3, then I definitely wouldn't take him to this. It's very loud, and the fight scenes are longer, more frequent and more intense. (And there is another type of scene that may distress him.) Don't know how tolerant Steve's kids are, but I don't think I'd take a 4 and 7 year old.

    SPOILER

    He wasn't bothered by IM3, but I didn't really like him watching a scene where some dude shoots another guy in the head for shits and giggles.

    Pacific Rim IS awesome!

    As for kids...well, like HTD said, it's extremely intense and loud. There isn't really inappropriate violence or language or sexuality of any kind, but I could see it being pretty scary for a really young person...really depends on the kid I guess.

    The only real issue I had with Pacific Rim is that the main character was kind of annoying, for me though it was a minor gripe because at the end of the day the movie kicked major fucking ass.

    Just to throw my 2 cents in I'd say the movie is suitable for ages 8 and up

    I thought Pacific Rim was ok. I though it looked great. On the negative side, the lead actor was kinda dull, and I couldn't really get totally invested in things. It was kind of like a Del Toro garage sale of bric-o-brak. It was fun, but I didn't really think much about it after leaving the theater.

    Anything involving GIANT FUCKING ROBOTS FUCKING FIGHTING GIANT FUCKING MONSTERS was awesome and spectacular and entertaining. Everything else – especially any scene that involved two or more people speaking – was some of the most unwatchable bullshit I've ever experienced.

    I agree, although I did like Charlie Day's scenes. He always brings the funny with him.

    Overall it was a fun popcorn movie but not much else. Surprised it didn't do better at the box office. I wonder if the sequel will actually get made now.

    So they can make more money. The movie was supposed to be a franchise starter, so I'm assuming a sequel and third movie were planned. The movie was definitely designed for a global audience, so probably with a good overseas box office they will be making those as planned.

    I don't think I'd go so far as to say everything else was some of the most unwatchable bullshit I've ever experienced. What was that, 10% of the movie? My only gripe was that the human element of the movie could've been even more fun and zany. I'm guessing a lot of the stuff that was cut out may have provided that. Either way, as Drinkey stated if you were going to watch this move you were going to watch giant fucking robots battle giant fucking monsters, so why complain about anything else?

    Exactly. It'd be nice if for once people wouldn't be worked up about starting a franchise than giving people something complete for a change.

    As for "not getting" Giant Robots and Monsters fighting, yeah, I get it. I just didn't get much out of it, nor could I ever really take it that serious. Also, what the hell is up with two people piloting one robot? Can't just one person do it?

    I thought you said you watched the movie? It was clearly explained why it takes two people.

    The mind-melding was one of the primary conceits of the movie, and its necessity to the plot was quickly explained in the beginning of the movie by saying the neurological control of the Jaegers was too much for one person's brain to handle.

    And you're doing it wrong if you go into a movie like this trying to take anything serious out of it. i mean, get it, you don't like it, and that's fine. But it's a super fun monster movie and I loved every second of it.

    I saw Maniac on demand last night. It was definitely one of the best horror movies I have seen in a while. I hate Elijah Wood, but he was brilliant.

    Well, since I'm apparently taking a dump on everyone's favorite new Giant Robots Fightin' movie, anyone else got a movie they did not like (or even hate) that everyone seemed to love to death?

    Here's one:

    Moulin Rouge!

    So I got around to watching Spring Breakers this weekend...and didn't like it nearly as much as I wanted to. There's a lot of great stuff, but i think it suffers from trying to be too artful. There's so much insanity going on that is just wonderful to take in, but all of the meandering establishment shots, pretty photography, and repetition of speeches really bogs the movie down and severely hurts its pacing. It's unfortunately a short movie that feels twice as long, and feels like 2 movies smashed into each other. I can forgive huge lapses in logic in the plot because there's pretty much nothing plausible in the movie anyway, but it's such a shame to waste so much time trying to make the movie feel like it's not as trashy as it is.
