I have seen that movie in its entirety (a friend gave it to me on VHS) and it is AMAZING.

AAAAAAUUUUUGGGHHH!!!!
quote:
When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes—a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)—who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.

Oscar® nominee Guillermo del Toro (“Pan’s Labyrinth”) is directing “Pacific Rim” from a script by Travis Beacham (“Clash of the Titans”). Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni and Mary Parent are producing, with Callum Greene serving as executive producer.

Is it just me, or is that pretty much the plot of Independence Day, down to the "washed-up former pilot"?

But does Liam Neeson warble "YOU SANK MY BATTLESHIP!"?

That is the question.

Is anyone else feeling very underwhelmed about the new Batman film?

Oh, I thought it was just me. Just because there have been so many movies out lately that I actually want to see that I figured it got lost in the shuffle, but one movie we went to had Batman 3 as a preview and it was pretty meh.

I was disappointed with the last two Batman films, except for the Heath Ledger parts.

BUT

Prometheus
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
Brave
Moonrise Kingdom
(already out)
Silent Hill 2 (maybe kinda sorta in the fall)

so my summer movie plate is full.

see, i thought the heath ledger part rather overrated. the only thing that tempted me even slightly in the trailer was Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

No. But i loved the first two. Not necessarily as Batman movies, but as movies about a man compelled to reinvent himself for reasons he's never completely understood.

I loved the first two too, which is why I'm suprised I'm feeling this way.

I think we might be reaching a point where geek movie fatigue is setting in. When the LOTR movies were the big thing, it was partly because well, what else did you have as an option if you were a geek? There were a few smaller release films that were getting good reviews, but the multiplex basically had LOTR, maybe the latest Harry Potter movie, and then the usual action/romantic comedy/drama stuff.

There will soon be a weekend where you can go from one theater to another and watch Chernobyl Diaries, The Avengers, Prometheus, Men in Black III and Battleship. All geek movies. I mean, only three of them worth watching, from what I've heard, but we're being so heavily marketed to right now it gets to be kind of fatiguing.

I have to say, that really was my first reaction when I had this thought. I kind of liked being socially marginalized. Which is sick, when you think about it.

We're currently reading The Hobbit (re-reading in my case), and I'd forgotten that I don't particularly like Tolkien when he does whimsy. It all seems a bit "Let me sit you down and talk to you like you're three years old!", which I never liked even as a kid. Once the story gets going I like it better - but I'm a bit worried about Jackson's directing. Many of the [i]Lord of the Rings[i] movies' weakest moments IMO were focused on hobbit whimsy.
