Pacific Rim Trailer

Sorry, its been a big week for trailers.

Guillermo del Toro has been having a few few years, and I'm glad to see he finally got a movie made.  He was supposed to be the director of "The Hobbit" (back when those were only two movies), he was supposed to make "At the Mountains of Madness", all of those projects fell apart.  The only thing he's done is written the remake of "Don't Be Afraid of the Dark", a decent but extremely forgettable movie from last year.  However, all his troubles seem worth it, because now we have the newest Evangelion movie, "Pacific Rim".

This is a movie for me.  Personally made for me.  I'm shocked there isn't even a little note at the beginning of the trailer that says "made for Blue Highwind".  It isn't the first time I've felt this way, because I am 100% certain that my future self will invent a time machine and travel back to the Eighties to create "The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the Eighth Dimension".  I love Godzilla movies, I love giant monsters, I love giant robots, and like the rest of the nerdy portion of the Internet, I love "Portal" and the fact that we're getting GlaDos in this movie as fanservice.  This is now my number #1 movie for 2013.  I am there.

So to prepare, I'm watching a pirate version of 1989's "Robot Jox".  I suggest you do the same.


  1. I don't know wither to squee like a girl, jizz my pants, or faint. So I guess I'll going do all three.

    Oh and Blue: There's cake if you reply.

    1. Considering your comment, I shudder to imagine what flavor cake it is, but um... yeah.
