Pacific Rim test screenings word of mouth

I'm surprised there hasn't been a thread about this in awhile. I happened to notice there have been two screenings of the unfinished film already, and unlike the usual bashing you heard from things like Battleship and Transformers, etc, the reviews (minus details) have been raves.

Re: Pacific Rim test screenings word of mouth

Not that I need any encouragement to see this I am glad to read the positive reviews. I really do think this will be a movie I will love and I think it will be a success!

There hasn't been a new trailer for a while, I hope we get a new one soon.

Re: Pacific Rim test screenings word of mouth

I like to go see movies that get really low reviews. Something fun in all the hate, there really is.

I am still flabbergasted at the guy who left Might Morphan Power Rangers. I mean what did he expect it would be about? Some US Park Rangers who have the power to morph into animals? It wasn't a bad power rangers movie.....

Re: Pacific Rim test screenings word of mouth

This movie is one that I was seeing no matter what the reviews. Giant robots vs. Kaiju directed by Guillermo Del Toro, starring Idris Elba and Ron Perlman, and featuring the voice of GlaDOS? If this was anything other than completely awesome, I would be shocked. Even in that unlikely case, I would have to go see it to understand just how it could have gone so wrong. I am however, pleased to hear the reviews from early screenings are good.

The trailer rips off Iron Man too much.

On paper this looks amazing. Charlie Hunnam and Ron Perlman are really good together, and Idris Elba is gravy. And the concept is just bonkers, which I like.

Re: Pacific Rim test screenings word of mouth

Considering it's Del Toro, I'll probably see it. But I have to admit I wasn't as blown away by the trailers as others have been. It basically just looked like a mashup of Transformers and Cloverfield to me. The robots and monsters looked pretty generic, and I didn't see anything terribly unique about the direction or style.

Re: Pacific Rim test screenings word of mouth

Really happy to see this is getting good reviews. I was going to see it no matter what since GDT is one of my favorite directors, I love the concept, and I'm a big fan of most of the cast.
I wish I could find out if there is some way to know when and where they are doing test screenings. My mom and I got to take part in test screenings for the second two Shrek films at the local theater, and it was a cool experience that I would love to do again. The Shrek thing was actually a surprise because they didn't tell us what movies we were seeing, and I can't remember for sure if they even told us it was test screenings. I think they just gave us invites to a special event happening soon.

Me too! I know that is one of the things I will be looking at in this movie! I just love the thought of giant monsters roaming the earth and I get disappointed with movies that do not depict their size well.
