    Wow, that's a cracking article. I really want to see the film now actually :s

    Tried watching Avengers again on Netflix. Absolutely awful. Both fell asleep about 1/3 of the way through. Remember seeing it in the cinema and not thinking it was that bad but my word does it not stand up to repeated viewings. I think the novelty carries it on first viewing.

    5/10 (five for the Hulk).

    Starts like a sequel, and that's the best part.

    Awful acting. Horrible script that's cliched to the breaking point and straight as a piece of stick. Moments of brilliant music which only serve to draw your attention to scenes which don't have brilliant music in a "why doesn't this have brilliant music when the other one did" way. Nice robots. Boring and cliched (acid? emp? really?)monster designs. Horrible ending. Did I mention awful acting? From everyone.

    4/10 for... I don't know what for. Chain swords?
    Anyone could have told you that from the trailer.

    It having a genius director probably has something to do with it.

    Well, whatever you like. At the very least he has an exceptional track record.
  • Deleted user 13 July 2013 10:59:11
    His non Hollywood stuff is exceptional, his English language movies are mostly average.

    The Last Stand.

    Arnie is still watchable but would not like to see him do his opening scene from The Terminator now. Decent no- brainer fun lifted by the presence of Luiz Guzman.

    6/10

    7/10 (if you want to see LG's pissed-off look)

    This.

    Hollywood seems to have strangled his creativity in my opinion.

    The trailer looks better than Transformers (that's not saying much though). It's a movie about robots vs. monsters and that won't change, no matter who's the director. There are good dumb movies and there are bad dumb movies. I think this could be a good dumb movie.

    Btw.
    Olympus has Fallen


    Good dumb movie.

    7/10 (it's a dumb 80s action nostalgia movie though)

    GDT is why I want to see it. I agree that the trailer doesn't look that great, but his name sells me a movie. I also disagree that his English language films have been "average", but eh, opinions.
  • Deleted user 13 July 2013 12:02:07
    What has he done that is so highly regarded? A two second Google on my phone (the extend of how much I care) brought up the name pans labyrinth and the fall which were decent bit nothing special.

    Labyrinth was awesome.

    Not Labyrinth. Pan's Labyrinth.

    He also did the Hellboy movies.

    Labyrinth is awesome though. That should be pointed out at least once every day.

    Well in that case, yes :p

    I think del Toro's reputation comes not just as a director of a few interesting movies, but also that he is a special effects guy and a writer. The characters in those movies, or the rendition of them is pretty much his vision.

    So when you see a Guillermo del Toro movie, much more of the movie is his work and his vision than is typical for a director.

    Edit: When I say special effects I mean make up, not cgi explosions. That's pretty much what makes the characters in Pan's Labyrinth and Hellboy stand out; it's not all cgi like all the other movies. I guess that kinda goes out the window with Pacific Rim.

    Pacific Rim, Imax 3D -70%
    The Good:
    Most of the action sequences. There are some parts that trump anything I've ever seen in a blockbuster.
    The special effects are top notch throughout.
    The soundtrack, especially the main theme, is great.
    The physical sets are full of cool little background details and are overall brilliantly designed.
    The monsters and robots look fantastic (most of the time) and are easily distinguishable from one another.

    The Awful:
    The acting. Fucking cringe inducing.
    The worse than B Movie script.
    Charlie Day, I've now seen the shitstain in two movies and would quite happily never watch him in anything again.
    Annoyingly a good chunk of the action sequences are still shot far too close to the actual smackdowns. Occasionally it just looks like a random metal limb smacking into a giant blob of monstrous... Something.

    Worth a watch then. But I was hoping for something a tad more enjoyable, and less terribly acted, in between the fighting parts.

    Charlie Day is great in Sunny but I have to admit that I was surprised to see him pop up in the Pacific Rim trailer.
  • Deleted user 13 July 2013 12:57:44
    Sunny isn't that great though so that is hardly a big compliment.

    cronos
    devils backbone
    pans labyrinth

    all brilliant spanish films

    the fall is part of a series of books he cowrote, which are ok

    but yes, then theres the english language films like hellboy, mimic etc...

    i prefer the spanish stuff...

    Damnation Alley 1977.

    It's based on a book by Roger Zelazny, which really should have told me everything I needed to know.

    Post-WW3 flick where a group of survivors travels through a wasteland. The guy from Airwolf is in it. It's really not worth watching. I don't even know how it got on my radar.

    4/10 (yes, it's about as good as Pacific Rim)

    Only seen pans Lab and the fall out of that list and both were nothing special so I can't for the life of me understand why people are convincing themselves that this film (which looks awful from the trailers) is going to be good because of him. But fair play if you are a fan of his work.

    The Devil's Backbone is bloody brilliant.

    Mimic wasn't really his film in the end.

    He also directed the rather excellent Blade II.

    Blade II was dire compared to the original Blade... which wasn't exactly amazing anyway, but it was still less of a cluster fuck than the sequel.
