I don’t know how many kaiju fans we have on the kym forum, and since pacific rim has giant mechs, ill make this a mecha/kaiju general. In here, discuss anything mecha or kaiju.
So, these two films mark the first time in a while that Hollywood is putting a lot of money (over $100m) into the kaiju genre and the mecha genre for a summer blockbuster. The way I see it, if these movies are successful, these two genres could become regulars at the box office. Kind of like what has happend to comic book movies lately. That is, big budgeted and crowd pleasing summer blockbusters.
Anyways, what are you thoughts on them?
Pacific rim: awesome kaiju vs mech action, talented director ( del toro) who obvoiusly loves the genre, good actors, great merchendise on the way. I am very excited for this film.
Godzilla: it’s very early, but based on what I know about it, I am pretty excited for it. It seems like they aren’t going to mess with Godzillas design. Also, I think he is going to fight another monster.
