GIANT ROBUTS

by
Going to see Pacific Rim in an hour. I highly recommend you all do the same sooner or later for the good of the giant-robots!

And the Hellboy franchise too, if this movie does extremely well for Del Toro he'll get to make Hellboy 3. WHICH NEEDS TO HAPPEN GUUUUYS.

And if you haven't seen Hellboy 1 and 2 oh my god stop failing at life and get on correcting that post haste!. lol

UPDATE:

Woo movie was awesome, well the fights n whatnot anyway, could have been better written and the characters less cliche/one dimensional but oh well was decent for what it was.

I see I am not the only one with the same agenda, but I am working for In the Mountains of Madness XD

Saw the movie last night. Pacific Rim is one of the most entertaining films I had seen this year. For the people who had already judged the movie from the previews and called it a Transformers rip off, giant robots are the only things comparable between them.This film appreciates the genre it is immolating and does not treat the audience like they have an IQ of 70. Th fights are brutal and realistic(as realistic as piloted robots fighting kaijus go). You actually like the characters. Yes the film can be very campy, but that just goes with the territory. If you like the giant monster films from Japan like Godzilla as a kid, this film is a lot like being a kid again and seeing those awesome creatures for the first time.

And yeah, the writing is weak, and again, I was expecting worse in characters. The film is cliche with the characters, but I stand by the act that they are likable and not any you can really hate and get annoyed at. The film is very predictable, and I can not say it is an over all great film. But this is the film I highly recommend going to see on the big screen, with a crowd, with a bucket of churros. Unlike other film that just try to make a fun and dumb action movie, this one is actually worth seeing.

Yeah they were all fine, I just wish they hadn't been so "oh this person is this" and "that person is that".  Sadly it's quite common for the big robot genre in general regardless of medium to have rather simple characters.  It's why anime like Guren Lagann and Macross Plus are just so much better because the characters are unique and interesting and with Del Toro having done such an amazing job with Hellboys characters I was expecting a little more in that department.

But definitely a fun highly recommendable movie, kicks the living poop out of michael bays insultingly stupid bullcrap.

Agree with ya on the Bay comment XD

Thing is, this was not Del Toro's story or writing. This was the film he accepted when he refused to allow the studio alter his script for In the Mountains of Madness. The story itself is, for the most part, the 'Hero's Journey' style of script writing set to a giant robot anime. And I will admit, I love anime but I am not a big fan o the giant robot ones. And I still loved pacific Rim.

Yeah everything about mountains I heard sounded amazing, they were even like nearly finished with making costumes, props and sets for it when their film studio pulled the funding.  He wanted it be a hard R 18+ super violent horror movie and the movie execs wanted to tone it down to a pg13 and he refused thank god.  So few film directors who believe in artistic integrity the way he does.  I hope Pacific Rim does really well so he can do the stuff he really wants to and get either Mountains finished or fund Hellboy3.  Gosh he's like the only director who even cares about using awesome animatronics and advanced puppetry anymore. Jim Henson probably would have loved him XD

As much as I love the Hellboy films, I want to see Mountains get made. I have yet to see a Lovecraft story made into a full theatrical film and be good, let alone be great. Del Toro, I think, can do it and it is the film he truly wants to do.

And it should be a rated R film. Its a H.P. Lovecraft story and nothing friendly or pleasant about his work.

As I said in my own journal, the film's characters are essentially Evangelion if everyone wasn't crazier than a sack of cats.

Oh, and some of the death scenes were absolutely brutal. The one still haunts. And the flashback was terrifying.

Yeah I was kinda bummed what happened to china and russia, they barely got any scenes as either pilots or robots and they had two of the coolest robots! lol figures.  Though being an aussie I was quite pleased how they weren't steriotypical but still clearly very aussie. The amount of times I heard "arse" instead of "ass" was great XD

The red, glowing eye amidst the water just... *shudders*

The love that went into the film truly shows.

Here's hoping for perhaps an anime series detailing the earlier parts of the war.

I think you meant "emulating". It would be more accurate to say Transformers "immolated" the genre.
CursedFerret

Oh crap. You are right DX

And I call myself a writer.
I wrote this shortly after waking up, but I did mean emulating.

The funny thing is bays crappy movies didn't even do the first portrayal of giant robots in films, that award went to Robot Jox a delightfully campy giant robot action movie in the 80s.  God I love that dumb ass movie so much.

Here's to hoping if the long rumored live action robotech, voltron and evangelion movies happen they don't get screwed up as bad as the tf ones did.=P

So going to watch Pacific Rim = High chance for Hellboy 3? Fuck yeah now I have to see it lol

Well sort of, he needs 140 million at least he said when fans asked about a possible Hellboy 3 and PR doing very well would help with that is all.  It would be awesome if it did make all that money for him on its own but I don't think it will sadly.

You should draw Gipsy Danger with boobs.

Just saiyan.
Zenu

If I tried to merge my super detailed robotics drawing with something sexual like boobs it would end up giger-esc where rather than the sexuality making people go "ooh" they'd go "oh god why, I'm so confused, make the burning in my eyes stop!" haha

On second thought I may have just convinced myself this is a brilliant idea. XD

Eff yeah! Though I was suggesting something more like Arcee. Or trying to anyway.

But yeah, avoid Gigering if at all possible.

I just realized you wrote saiyan, as in DBZ saiyan.  I wish I could give highfives through the internet. lol

In about two weeks it has made about $178 million, so I hope that will count as a huge success! I'd absolutely love a Hellboy 3, Hellboy is so sexy... XD
