I’ll admit, I didn’t catch “Pac-Rim Fever” (If no one else has thought of that, I’ll be utterly amazed) until recently when I saw the theatrical trailer right here on NerdBastards: The “one-two” punch of Roland Emmerich and Michael Bay had me incredibly distrustful of anything inspired by Kaiju or Mecha that wasn’t made in Japan….

I happily admit that I have dispensed with all reservations regarding Pacific Rim: Guillermo del Toro appears to have created the next great sci-fi masterpiece here…a work on the level of Star Wars and easily surpassing Avatar.
