Draw365, Day 198 - Gipsy Danger vs. Kaiju
I ended up seeing Pacific Rim over the weekend, and ooooohhh boooyy, I was impressed! For about two hours, I was sitting there giddy, feeling like a kid again. I realize that it’s a knockoff of an old formula, and okay the storyline was cheesy, but it brought back the same feelings I had when I first saw Voltron, or Robotech, or Ultraman, or the more obscure Voltes V. It was fast-paced, action-packed, and the whole time I was thinking, “I WANT ALL THE TOYS.” Also, I am not a huge fan of movie gimmicks, but I saw it in IMAX 3D, and I can honestly say with overwhelming resolve, that it truly enhanced my experience. Seeing it in that incredible size and scale really made me feel like a true witness—an insignificant human watching behemoths fight to determine circumstances outside my control. I haven’t felt this excited about an action movie in a long time. Go see it now!
