    Not having read the book and only interested in movies like that for their entertainment value, I'm looking forward to seeing WWZ. I expect only mindless action and mayhem from this, so don't see how I could be too disappointed unless the plot directly contradicts itself.

    That's the thing that kills some movies that could have been good for me. Things like - at the beginning of the movie the aliens move super fast, employ great tactics, and are unbeatable but by the end of the movie they're slow moving and dimwitted. I can think of one movie I still like in spite of that but it would've been so much better with some consistency.

    Iron Man 3 - Pretty good
    Star Trek 2 - I really liked this movie. I never saw the original Star Trek 2 movie so this story way new to me.
    Man of Steel - OK, but not as good as the first two.

    Going to see Pacific Rim tomorrow.

    WWZ sucked hard and i'm a hudge zombie movie fan. it was just a complete mess of a movie. cliched scenes, bad edits, no suspense, etc.

    iron man 3 was an even bigger stinker. very disappointing. too much talk not enough action. it was like they were trying to do it on the cheap and skimp on fx.

    i'm hoping star trek makes up for these disappointments.

    Be prepared for the new fancy-shmancy sound delivery (ST 2/reboot); a little too loud for this old geezer.

    Thought this was a good line....."Pacific Rim's greatest breakthrough may be that it's the first Hollywood blockbuster to sport a title less descriptive of its plot than of its intended market."

    Star Trek- worth the ticket price
    Now You See Me- did not enjoy
    Pacific Rim- thoroughly entertaining. B-movie entertainment with a blockbuster budget. Go see it.

    Pacific Rim. So rad. Walks a fine line towards kitchy, but never crosses it. Del Toro is such a heartful, crazy-creative fan-boy. He clearly loves Kaiju and giant robots. I mean, who doesnt. See it in 3D. So much fun.

    I am likely the only fool in the world to have walked into wwz not knowing it was a fucking zombie movie. I'm a little fried on zombie movies but I do like the walking dead.

    Saw this is the end last night. Haven't laughed like that at a movie in a long time. Solid solid flick.

    Star trek 2-all action. Seriously, the time inbetween crisis's is about 2 minutes on average. Still enjoyable, but they need to slow the fuck down on the pacing.

    Pacific Rim was a decent movie. As someone already posted fund B-movie type film with good special effects.

    Second week of Despicable Me 2 and Grown Ups 2 made more money than Pacific Rim at the box office this weekend.
    I really want to see Pacific Rim But I have to drive and hour to see it. The local small theatre held over D.M.2 and The Lone Ranger and brought in G.U.2

    Glad you said it. That's the only thing I can say when referring to this movie. Have not seen it, but that's what hits my mind when I read this title.

    Saw Pacific Rim(job) tonight

    pretty entertaining, special effects were bonkers


    I feel like we need some sort of standardized rating system for movies here. I'll throw this out there:

    My buddies and I have, since high school, used the Hustler magazine movie rating system. I think it works better than stars or thumbs up or down or whatever. A movie can get one of 5 ratings.

    Totally limp
    1/4 erect
    1/2 mast
    3/4 erect
    Fully erect

    so, Pacific Rim - 3/4 erect

    Pacific Rim - If you want to see godzilla monsters fighting gigantic mechs, this is your movie. See it in 3D and enjoy. There's thankfully very little attempt at some sort of dumb love story, primarily just big things fighting. Fucking rad. Great score that has Tom Morello on it too.

    Took the wife, and daughter to a last minute movie.
    They wanted to see The Heat with Sandra Bullock, and Melissa McCarthy.
    It had its stupid parts for sure, but I laughed really hard at a lot of it..
    Must recommend.
