Pacific Rim Giveaway!! (and rant)

pacific-rim-giveawayDue to the Anime Expo 2013, the anime world has been abuzz with excitement. One question that’s been on everyone’s lips is “Will Pacific Rim be a hit?” Most arguments in the negative, claim that Hollywood doesn’t know how to do a good ‘Mecha’ show. While it’s true that the giant fighting robot concept was initially Japanese, Hollywood has been known to put its own spin on things and improve upon them. Yea we have some flops every now and again but hey, no one’s perfect. Personally, I think that there is ALOT of potential in a high budget mecha movie and am anxiously looking forward to its release.

With that said, I was given the opportunity to award a prize (see image above) to one lucky winner. To participate, all you have to do is leave a comment saying what you think about the upcoming Pacific Rim movie. On Friday afternoon at 12 (12.07.2013), one of you will be selected with’s ‘True Random Number Generator’ and contacted via the email used to post your comment.

(Note. if no reply is received by midnight then another winner will be chosen)

Good luck!!

    Since I was a kid and first saw ‘CRONOS’ Del Toro has been my favorite director and a huge influence on my art. I have all his films (and am anxiously awaiting “Devils Backbone’ when it releases on Criterion BluRay this month) as well as literary books by him, about him, and involving him. PACIFIC RIM is going to be his juggernaut masterpiece. He’s working with one of the biggest studios, with a huge budget, and full creative control. And hes doing a film about robots fighting with japanese inspired KAIJU! The fact that he calls them Kaiju gets my geek levels high. I’m a huge fan of the monsters of japanese cinema! I’m taking all the youngsters in my family to see this film on Thursday at the first IMAX screening so we can collect the awesome FanFix poster that IMAX is handing out. I’m incredibly excited about this film. It’s the movie i’ve been awaiting since it was first announced. A visionary director with an amazing and eclectic cast with none other then JAX TELLER at the lead lol! This prize pack would be so appreciated! Cheers to and cheers to PACIFIC RIM!

    Since its directed by del Toro, will be an awesome movie- no doubt. It’s going to be a summer blockbuster. Will watch in IMAX on Friday.

    First off, thanks for having such an AWESOME! giveaway! I have been pert near a life-long (HUGE fan since I was just FIVE years old) of the GIANT Monster/Kaiju genre! And I’m fast approaching the seasoned age of 48 years old on July 16th, 2013. So I know a thing or two about the Kaiju/GIANT Monster genre. And I have been waiting (which seems like forever, BTW) for a deserving and respectable big budget American Kaiju movie production to be made. And I believe that the fanboy genius of Guillermo del Toro will be the catalyst that will make my hopes, dreams and wishes come true (also thousands, if not millions of other fanboy/fangirl dreams come true) with the release of PACIFIC RIM! And my excitement certainly doesn’t stop here! Heck no! I would TRULY be taken aback if I were lucky enough to win this AWESOME PACIFIC RIM Prize pack! (*Hey! that line just rhymed.) There is NO greater fan than I! So yeah! I am REALLY HUGELY EXCITED about seeing PACIFIC RIM, and MOST DEFINITELY EXCITED about the Prize pack! And NOTHING could possibly get me more excited than I already am! ..with the exception that if I were actually lucky enough to win the KAIJU-TASTIC PACIFIC RIM PRIZE PACK!!!! Thank you very much for the chance!

    Pacific Rim is my childhood dream come true because its the closest movie we will see to a serious Power Rangers theme with the monsters vs the megazords!

  • ceratopian

    Can’t wait to see it! I think if we support movies like this, it can only help.

  • Karan Sthi

    I think it will be good nothing can be as bad as the second and third parts of transformers there is also the fact that Guillermo Del Toro is an excellent director and has done very well with a lot of his films there is no reason that he would not give the robots the respect the deserve and make a very enjoyable film
