Wild At Heart

It has been awhile since I have seen a first run film but I have been a big fan of Guillermo del Toro, who I had the pleasure of meeting 2 years ago at Toronto Comic Con while filming this movie) for awhile and really wanted to see his new film "Pacific Rim". I have been a huge anime/manga fan for awhile and I love his tribute to the genres. Watching a film where giant creatures are attacking the Earth to be fought off my humanoid mecha (Jaegers), how could you not get excited by that. There is a lot of really great moments though I wish some of the other Jaeger pilots, esp the Chinese team, could have gotten some more screen time and some of the fight scenes were brighter. Besides that, it was just a really fun movie for a fan of both Harryhausen and Ishiro Honda and a must see for the big screen.
