All I Want... Is For It To Be Cool. Is That Too Much To Ask?
I don't get excited about movies much anymore. It's been a long time since I eagerly awaited some big Hollywood blockbuster... I outgrew that sort of thing, I think. But then, almost a year ago, I caught wind of something that sounded cool, if they did it right. Then a couple of months ago, the trailers started to hit the web. And tomorrow, July 12, 2013, the first movie I've been really excited about in years is hitting the movie screens. Ladles and girlymen, allow me to introduce to you...
WANT. OH SO WANT. Mecha! Kaiju! Heck, GLaDOS! It may not be Sharknado, but it'll do.
(note: longtime readers will point out that I did get excited about Tintin. While true, that was an excitement mixed with deep-seated fear that it would suck. It was that fear that kept me from seeing it in the theatre. Nothing of the sort is going to happen to me with Pacific Rim. I grew up with Tintin. I learned to read with Tintin. It would have seriously hurt if that movie was bad. This one? If it's bad, I'm out $10 and two hours or whatever.)
