  1. Nice little list. Glad to see you were a fan of Frankenstein’s Army. I have a copy lying around I keep meaning to watch and good to see you rated it so highly. I really enjoyed You’re Next and Pacific Rim as well. Just hired The Conjuring today to watch so looking forward to catching that as well.

  2. Anyone know why mankind had to build those giant robots robots to fight the monsters in Pacific Rim, when they easily could have shot them down with some missiles fired from a helicopter or a plane, at a save distance?

  3. Yeah, but they could have come up with some explanation, no? To make it feel more real, more believable? Sometimes those big movies feel like a train with a little baby tied to the front of it, heading for a crash. With everyone all busy inside and no one with some basic level of intelligence looking at the big (moving) picture (s)! Still a great movie though…
