We saw Pacific Rim last night and it was pretty great. It's not the BEST movie I've ever seen, but it was about as awesome as I'd expect. Guillermo Del Toro is an awesome director and while this isn't exactly as weird as most of his shit, he still brings a ton of heart and creativity to the flick. If this had been done by Michael Bay, it would have been the worst, you just know. So yeah, was lots of fun. Didn't see it in 3D because I read that it's not Avatar-levels of 3D awesome and the 3D was done afterwards anyways. Stay through the first part of the credits - apparently there's an amazing little scene after. I had to pee so bad, I missed it.
Glad to hear things are on the upswing, Art!
