I love robots, and I love giant monsters, so the news that Guillermo del Toro is looking to add Godzilla to the Pacific Rim movie is the best official news I have had this year. You see Pacific Rim may be the greatest film I have ever seen. This isn’t a view based upon quality of writing, story or characterisation. It is based on the fact I have never been lucky enough to watch anything that has entertained so much. For just over two and a half hours I was in rapture.
Seriously, this is the most fun I have ever had in the cinema. I was worried after watching the trailers because I was so excited, the geek site reviews loved it, it was being billed as one of the best summer blockbusters in years. My own internal hype was maxed out, but I’ve been disappointed before (*cough* The Hobbit). As the lights went down and the trailers passed the music started. It was within a few seconds I knew this was going to be something special.
To get you in the mood here is the intro music, play it while you read it is now the soundtrack to my life.
