    My brother e-mailed me yesterday and recommended that I go see it. He said that Imax is made for this movie.

    It's a helluva Giant Robots fighting Giant Monsters movie. It's like the monster movie that 8 year old me could only have dreamed about seeing. I think 8 year old me would have exploded from excitement. It's a bit silly if you think about it too long, and there are more than a few cornball moments, but there's also a lot of cool, quirky weirdness (this is del Toro, after all). Oh yeah, and lots and lots of awesome Robot vs. Monster action. Good times.

    I saw it last week and actually enjoyed it. I'm sorta used up on big budget FX-alien flix, but I saw Pacific Rim mainly because it was directed by Guillermo del Toro. Unlike a lot of big-budget Hollywood guys, del Toro can make a move like this and make it seem like he really likes this sort of movie. A non-cynical director makes a big difference.

    I think I'm going to blind buy this one based upon the reviews. Hope I'm not disappointed.

    My copy will be here today, can't wait. Based on Pott's review over on AVS could be the go to "show off your system" BD.

    Walmart is the devil. Please buy it somewhere else.

    I'm picking mine up at Fry's on my lunch hour.

    I'll be picking it up at Frys also. Agreed, I don't support Walmart.

    I don't have much of a selection of stores in my neck of the woods. All others are selling for $5 bucks more.

    In my other town, Walmart is basically IT. There pretty much is no other option except grocery stores and their prices are insane. I order from Amazon then :) Best Buy is 20 minutes away and Frys is 1hr. In SJ though, where I am most of the time, Frys is in walking distance :eek:
