Obligatory Pacific Rim review
Perhaps not so much a review as a recommendation:
If you enjoy
a) giant monsters,
b) giant robots, and/or
c) military sci-fi,
then you need to go see this movie, especially on the big screen.
I particularly liked the opening exposition, and the scenes leading up to the title. The first kaiju attack on the Golden Gate Bridge was a favorite and very well done, having the heft and "reality" of suitmation effects.
This gives me great hope for next year's Godzilla, also produced by Legendary Pictures. Now could someone greenlight del Toro's At the Mountains of Madness already?
