    Pacific Rim

    I went to see this last night. The story and plot utterly sucked and was filled with plenty of over-convenient moments to move it along, but frankly you should still see it for these reasons:

    - It is full of mindless violence involving giant robots and giant monsters
    - It has GlaDOS
    - It is full of mindless violence involving giant robots and giant monsters
    - Oil tankers as baseball bats
    - Skyscrapers falling everywhere with destruction on an insane scale
    - Nuclear bombs
    - Did I mention it is full of utterly mindless violence involving giant robots and monsters?

    Saw this last night.
    Some terrible dialogue and acting but it's giant robots fighting aliens so I was happy :-)

    Saw it last week and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's a Ronseal film, it does exactly what it says on the tin.

    I think approaching it with the right mindset is key. Sounds like 'Snakes on a plane' to me, another Ronseal film.

    I saw it at the iMax in manchester in 3D. There's no need to watch it in 3D unless you like 3D rain (and an occasional fish) in your face for most of the film.

    Went to see After Earth about a month ago (which I know has countless bad reviews, but I actually enjoyed it..)
    Wasn't paying attention to the trailers. Heard a voice I know and love. Brain went into "OMG. HOW THE HELL DID I NOT HEAR ABOUT THIS?!" mode, only to be severely disappointed when I looked up. I felt violated.
    The film itself looks terrible, so I haven't seen it xD
    (On another note, does anybody know what's going on with the Half-Life film?)

    Exactly! You don't see either film expecting great acting or meaningful insights into the human condition. I thoroughly enjoyed Pacific Rim.

    I like the look of this, but then I did wear out the tape of Mazinger Z when I was a child from the local video shop here

    Looking forward to seeing this, giant mecha vs alien... things is always good.

    That and it seems to have been inspired at least somewhat by Neon Genesis Evangelion, an anime that I absolutely love.
