    I just found out about it, almost brought tears to my eyes. There's an animated show coming too.

    Good news, because I missed out seeing the first one in theaters.

    VERY EXCITE.

    Bunch of Pacific Rim gifs and that theme tune for enthusiasm's sake.

    WHY DIDN'T THEY ALWAYS USE THE SWORDS? WHY DID THEY WAIT UNTIL MOST EVERYONE WAS ALREADY DEAD?

    Never seen the first one, the trailers certainly looked like the CGI was fantastic. Worth getting on DVD?

    I made fun of people I knew that wanted to see the first one. It looked terrible to me in the trailers and sounded corny as hell.

    The movie was entertaining. It's still silly, but I enjoyed myself.

    It is out on movie channels now, I'm sure you can probably find somewhere to watch it without paying full dvd price.

    The Kaiju blood was toxic/corrosive or something, so I guess that's why it was a last resort since tons of Kaiju blood would end up going everywhere (not that that would matter since usually the cities end up getting destroyed haha).

    I'm curious as to what storyline they would use for the sequel since at the end of the first one
    they destroyed the rift, so no more Kaiju can come in

    they could easily base it off radiation monsters living off the coast of japan, but by 2017 that might be too real :lol:

    They said it's going to focus on the Drift between pilots more, and what I would love to see - is the early years when the Jaegar program was in it's hey-day with a dozen mechs or so, more than the 5 that were in the original

    Just watched it again last night.. so psyched for the sequel. I hope they turn down the dumb slightly, because the first one was pretty dumb. Intentionally, most likely, but still... they could take themselves a little more seriously next time around.

    Since I'm too lazy to type out everything I feel related to what you just said, I feel like this article sums it up just as nicely
