    looks like Guillermo has been catching up on his Toho Production Kaiju movies on Saturday mornings.

    Also a bit of Battleship mixed in. At least at the beginning it seems.

    I love the GladOS appearance. Hopefully she is as disdainful of humans as ever.

    One of the monsters has a pointy snout like a shark. That’s really creepy for some reason. Yeeesh. I read on Wiki this is his homage to Japanese Giant Monster films. Hope it lives up to the hype this trailer creates.

    Wow, does that ever look stupid. Guillermo del Toro, really? A few years back, there was an animated film that mixed up the two genres, called “Monsters vs. Aliens,” that greatly surprised me by being really good. It took advantage of the comedy gold inherent with the history of both genres, and added in some heart. So there’s potential in this mix. But if the likes of Guillermo del Toro can’t pull off that same kind of success with this material, I’m going to stop being disappointed he dropped out of directing “The Hobbit.”

    Noisy garbage. And what’s with the color in fantasy films? Why is everything stripped to almost black-and-white? It’s one of the reasons the new Superman film looks so ugly.

    He drops the Hobbit to work on other projects….. and this is what he comes up with? Are you kidding? If you’re going to make mindless popcorn movies at least make sure the effects work doesn’t look completely tacky.

    Obviously forbidding real physics for the sake of fantasy it looks entertaining yet totally forgettable. I hope there is something else in the plot than the giant monsters fight the mechas. But in movies like this it was never a hurdle so why bother.
