And The Might Morphin Power Rangers, where they combine to make one big robot thrown in there too.
It's so silly but it looks like fun. Even if I spent the first half figuring out if the aliens or the robots were the designated 'bad guys.' The opening spiel made me think that the creatures were, like Godzilla, fighting aliens. See, that would be awesome.
Although I liked the Alien movies, I can't think of any alien invasion movie I liked. Oh wait, Body Snatchers, original and '78 remake. That was a lot more subtle than this stuff.
it looks absolutely awful
OP, it's directed by Guillermo del Toro, who's done some awesomely innovative stuff with concepts that on the face of it seem "tired," so I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt that this won't be a massive suckfest.
I met this Japanese guy once who was simply voracious about rimming. I wasn't much into him but I will admit he was very good at it, and made me enjoy rimming like I never had before.
Toro is overrated, the producer of that awful "Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark" remake for instance. Pacific Rim will probably bury his reputation for good.
Looked fun until the robots came on. Boring. Let's for once just have a giant monster eat the world successfully.

That would be "Cloverfield", which I loved.
Well, 12-year old boys should be happy.
It's an update on "The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms."
A Pacific Rim is really much better than the job you East Coast boys can give.
I would love to give any kind of rim to Charlie Hunnam.
