@cleolinda: It's basically the movie Michael Bay THINKS he's been making.
@cleolinda: I spent a lot of it making giant HOLY SHIT WHAT THE FUCK faces. Apparently sea monsters were what I really needed in my life.
@particle_p: How did it compare to Prometheus?
Short version: Prometheus is completely wackadoo and I love it and Idris Elba is also in it. Pacific Rim is awesome in a more... intentional... way. Also, it's Guillermo del Toro, so the 3D was worth it and the monsters are all A+ + + WHAT THE FUCK DID I JUST SEE.
@cleolinda: Well, gorgeously cinematographed robots punching sea monsters in the face while everyone has emotions.
@cleolinda: The cinematographer actually directed three episodes of Hannibal. Oh, and won an Oscar for Pan's Labyrinth. That.
(Guys! Guys! He's responsible for that episode where our heads exploded!)
(Wait, holy shit, Guillermo Navarro also shot the Breaking Dawn movies? What the hell, y'all.)
@cleolinda: Also, there is a character named Hannibal in it. He sells organs and body parts.
@MartianBethany: Wait, for real?
@cleolinda: Yup. My hand to God.
@MartianBethany: I mean, I was already gonna see the movie, but now I'm trying to figure out if I can watch it, like, yesterday.
@cleolinda: It's the kind of movie where, if you think you'll like this movie, you will REAAAALLYYYYY like this movie.
@cleolinda: It really is like Transformers vs Godzillas, but quality.
@cleolinda: I'm not as over-the-moon about it as everyone else, I don't think, but it was solid.
@cleolinda: Like, it's hard to get me to just spend an entire hour like >:O but it happened.
To the point where I kind of don't even want to spoil which parts totally dropped my jaw. We can get into that in the comments, I guess. I'd say more, but I feel kind of face-punched myself right now. Discuss amongst yourselves while I acquire sustenance.
