Fucking yes.

It's 2017, so the wait will be hell, but del Toro will also be creating an animated series that continues from the Year Zero comic.

    I had mixed emotions about the movie. It wasn't terrible but it wasn't great. I was expecting more. Not sure if I'll go watch a sequel.

    And Guillermo del Toro is making an animated series based on the IP as well? Sounds cool, I enjoyed the movie in the same way I enjoy anime like DBZ, so the future is looking bright.

    Relevant music AND pic.


    A PR cartoon done kinda like Suisei no Gargantia was(light-hearted, but when it gets serious, it gets serious) would be godlike.

    What the fuck does that even mean?

    The movie was simply GIANT ROBOTS VERSUS GIANT MONSTERS. What else do you want nerd.

    This sort of tone would be great for the series, IMO:

    The movie had a horrible story, aside from the actual Kaiju vs Mech nonsense. The fight scenes were pretty bland too.

    Fights were more entertaining than the new Godzilla because there were more fights and it wasn't just cockteases til the end. If only Pacific Rim refined the story a little more and possibly had better characters, I would have said it blew Godzilla out the water.

    Story-wise it already got a thumbs down from me when it's the white man and asian girl duo. I would have flipped if they kissed in the movie. :mad:

    Better characters?

    Than the irrelevent humans who essentially do fuck all except nearly fuck themselves then try to unfuck themselves yet take up far more screentime than the monsters everyone came to see?

    Better than Lieutenant Boring looking for Nurse Boring with little Boring in tow?

    Shit man, Pacific Rim isn't going to win any awards for story but anything can blow Godzilla out of the water on those points for fucking free, Pacific Rim included.

    The concept of 2 pilots and how they were driving the Mechs was corny as fuck. Hopefully in 2017 you dont need 2 pilots that are mentally linked to pilot. Whoever made that design choice needs to not be brought back to the creative process.

    Oh and 2014 Godzilla would body these lame ass mechs.

    Nah, I want them to take the giant monster fights to different directions.

    Shouldn't just be the rifts and only rifts, or if it is it shouldn't be the same villains.


    Outer space aliens, evil Jaegers, man made monsters, keep it fresh and new with each film.

    Nah, I want them to keep that shit local. Could you imagine Kaiju being adapted for the desert? What about forests or woodland areas?

    Then you escalate it to outer space battles with thrusters. Fuck it and go Gundam with it, beams sabers and shields out the ass baby!

    Come to think of it, it would've been nice to see Jaeger sniper-type specialists for long-range. It could work considering you have to have 2 minds for a Jaeger, a trained sniper and spotter working together in one machine body sounds amazing. Hell, add a few built specifically for underwater combat with great swimming speed, and some anti-submarine missiles to counter or match Kaiju of that specific type.

    Another thing, why didn't they have drop points for quickly resupplying the Jaegers with more ammo and making on-site repairs? I know funding was cut and they were on their last legs in the movie, but did they have these kinds of things setup before that point?

    Do or did any of the bases housing the Jaegers have weapons of any kind? Like the kind of weapons most modern warships have, especially for long-range weaponry when the Jaegers out on the battlefield need emergency support.

    I'm no military expert or anything, but watching past mech-anime and some military movies has me bringing up this stuff in my head. headscratch.gif

    I've said it before in the OG thread and I'll say it again, I want all of this shit to happen in future sequels.

    lol fuck y'all. That movie had awful fight scenes. i went in there, all hype, and was disappointed. SLOW ass fucking fights, where most of the time it was like watching a boring boxing match. Only instead of boxers, they were using dim witted fat kids. Then a random weapon would get used sometimes. Oh hey i forgot we have this incredibly versatile sword that doesn't require ammo and can chop off fucking kaiju limbs and heads easily. Silly me. Tee hee. Gimme rapid fire machine gun punches, and a fuckton more weapons.

    Godzilla showed how you make giant monster fights happen, albeit, with a slow leadup. You start with a chokeslam, and you end with nuclear fire breath. I bet dollars to blowjobs that MechaGodzilla will shit all over any Jaiger nonsense out there. GET BODIED YOU DUAL PILOT FUCKING SHITTY TOY!

    And yes, the script for Pacific Rim was hilariously poorly done.

    I'm not saying I hated the movie by any means. But if I want cheesy lame sci fi, I'll stick with Starship Troopers.

    It has boobies.

    Starship Troopers was awesome man wtf. Storywise Pacific Rim was terrible as shit but I still enjoyed it more than Godzilla if only for the action. Actually I dont know if I truly believe that I mean they had their points but Godzilla was fucking horrible but PR had a few better moments.

    What is your point about it passing the Bechdel test? My point was that it's hollywood and it's always the white man and the asian girl.

    Story didn't exactly suck, but I thought the idea of how to control the robots was dumb. It was also too convenient that the main dude and girl would be able to link together. I don't recall it being explained why. He goes from having perfect link with his bro, to having it with a random girl he meets. The characters.... idk they are ok I guess. The robots were all forgettable though.

    And yeah, don't hate on Starship Troopers.... that movie was golden for it's time. There hasn't been any movie like that that I know of that's as good.

    You know why it's white man asian woman? That's what is seen as an ok interracial couple. Yes they didn't do the kisst hing (thank god) but point is look at the trends and the market. A movie about giant robots and monsters. You need an asian woman. A man won't work cause of how then that can alienate western audiences. Plus sad to say how many asian men get lead roles in movies that aren't martial arts? Same applies to Hispanic/Latino leads. If the male isn't white then for most movies it will not be right.
    Who else in a movie wrestled an evil lesbian and by forcefully kissing her, turned her not only heterosexual but good as well? Exactly. That, my friend, is the power of Sean motherfucking Connery - Valaris

    Anyways I welcome a sequel. There is plenty of room for improvement in all areas so I hope Guillermo really kills it.
  • GasarakiGasaraki Joined: Posts: 8,782 ✭✭✭✭✭ OG
    The interracial couple thing is a non-issue because del Toro has specifically said they wanted to avoid a couple relationship between Mako and Raleigh, so that's not where that's going.

    I mean sure, they could change that in a sequel, but I hope they don't make that mistake.

    so to disprove my theory that PR1 was mostly just CGI boxing, you show me a video of CommieBot punching Leatherface in the head? o.0

    PR1 took giant mechs and kaiju's, and made them rockem sockem robots.

    I expect...nay, I DEMAND, that PR2 takes advantage of the fact this is giant monsters/mech's we are talking about, and goes all out.
