I’ll admit– I didn’t used to like sci-fi movies at all. But recently, my eyes have been open. I’m not certain, but I think it might have started with my daughter’s unexpected interest in Star Wars.
Regardless, I am pretty excited about the Pacific Rim release in a few days.
Directed by Guillermo del Toro, Pacific Rim is an epic science fiction film set in the 2020s. Earth is at war with Kaijus; colossal monsters from an inter-dimensional gateway on the Pacific Ocean floor. Humanity unites to fight these huge monsters by creating the Jaegers: gigantic humanoid robots that are controlled by two pilots whose minds and memories are linked. The story takes place in the later days of the war, following Raleigh Becket, a former Jaeger pilot called out of retirement and paired up with newbie pilot Mako Mori in a final effort to defeat the Kaijus!
