    You know, the premise of this movie is not hard to come up with - but to act on it - to say "yes we have to get this produced" is the remarkable thing.

    I just listened to a podcast about Soderberg and Speilbergs rants on the future of movies and it made me really depressed. Its not looking good people. No wonder a bunch of the highly creative minds have fled to TV. Which is great for sprawling canvases but sucks for the movie going experience that is not tied into comic books/action movies.

    Basically, if the movie is not made for the global audience and making 250 million + with a huge budget, then its an indie movie made for less than 5 mil. RIP to the movies based on good stories in the 20 to 40 range. Hopefully, the movie going public will course correct this with their ticket buying power, but not likely since these things are just global behemoths.

    Also, other than Gosling and Tatum, American male actors under 40 is not looking that bright. I guess you could add Franco in the mix. And you can hate on those guys all you want, but thats what we are working with right now and at least they have some talent/likability.

    I've seen seven of the horror movies on that list. The Bad Seed has always been a favorite. Loved The Skull when I was a kid.

    And yes, Pacific Rim is fantastic. (Gotta thank Del Toro for throwing Guiron in there; it brought back all sorts of warm and fuzzy childhood memories of hours spent watching Japanese monster movies.)

    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?
