I will never get tired of Wes Anderson movies. This cast is dynamite.
KEEP IT BRIEF REVIEW: Pacific Rim
I really WANT to love Guillermo del Toro. He’s talented, he loves ghosts and monsters, he has great ideas. However, the majority of his films always leave me a little cold.
PACIFIC RIM is no exception. There was a lot of weird hype for this movie—some people calling it THE NEXT STAR WARS and others saying it was just garbage. It’s neither. It’s more like THE NEXT INDEPENDENCE DAY.
The characters are weak and uninteresting, and the monsters and robots are all rather bland and similar looking. It’s an ok way to spend a few hours, but if you’re looking for a game changer, look elsewhere.
Final Score: 3 out of 5
The Breakfast Club, Directed by John Hughes. (1985)
“Most importantly—to fans anyway—the logo looked super-cool. After the panic over the hiring of [Tim] Burton and [Michael] Keaton, the introduction of [Anton] Furst’s logo brought back some anticipatory excitement. The biggest worry among the maturing comics fans who loved Watchmen and The Dark Knight Returns was that the people making Batman didn’t ‘get’ the property, and that they were going to make something overtly silly or slapdash. But that first poster didn’t look slapdash. It looked like Warner Bros. was spending some money on marketing, which meant the company probably thought it had a hit on its hands. It was a good sign.”
Adventures In Licensing looks at how the logo for the 1989 Batman helped set the course for superhero movies to come.
