    I guess I am just much more one for plot. While I do greatly admrie special effects, and I usually recommend those types of movies based on the quality of the CGI, I think I had though there was going to be more of a plot to Pacific Rim and in the end it essentially was just some massive fights. The fights were impressive to watch, but its not really enough for me to go back and watch a movie again. And sometimes random plot holes can detract from awesome moments - why would you save the bloody sword until you were just about to die? :P

    Because when you have a giant sword you have to wait until the most epic moment to pull it out xP I was more bothered by the science than the plot holes.

    "It's analog!"

    I don't think that word means what you think it means... and if it does, did we build this thing with 1950s technology or something? Damn!

    Don't get me wrong, plot is hugely important, I just don't think it's the purpose of all movies. Pacific Rim wouldn't have been as good if it tried to get all deep and plot heavy, because anything with giant robots fighting giant monsters wouldn't make for a very in depth storyline in the first place. It would have come across as forced, even with the best execution possible, I just don't think it would be good. It would be cheesy.

    I haven't watched Pacific Rim, but I know for a fact that Del Toro cooperated with the Polaris Network (AKA The Game Station) from Youtube to make a viral video based on the movie. The people who is acting in that short video may not be professional actors, but I found it entertaining nevertheless. And before you ask, the Jeagers and monsters being costumes instead of CGI is based on the old monster movies having costumes as well. I'll provide the video below if you're interested:

    Spoiler tags are pretty much ineffective since everyone's first impulse is to open them :P

    I know, our first impulses are to know what is being discussed in case we missed out :P

    For those interested, there is going to be a new book discussion thread coming up in the next day or so, which will be the new home for the forums for discussion literature :)

    That sounds good, AT, though I'm afraid I probably won't post much in it, if at all. I'm not really that big on reading books these days. xP

    This reminds me though, awhile back when I posted a thread about my fan Pokemon region, someone told me I should write a journey fic that takes place in it. Truth be told, I actually feel like doing this. But I need to create a bunch more fan Pokemon first...lol

    But I do have the starters, their evolved forms, a couple legendaries, and a few other Pokemon in mind already. I also came up with the professor's name.

    A year ago, I started a PMD fanfic. I finished one chapter, and then I put it aside and never really looked at it again. And now, I have this sudden urge to resume working on it. It's sort of bizarre how I only get in the mood to write it during late summer... I've had no inspiration for my main story lately, but I really don't want to get sidetracked with this PMD fic. It's frustrating.

    Huh. Well, in my case, I previously didn't have much interest in writing Pokemon fanfiction at all. I had more fun writing for other fandoms I'm a part of (like Fire Emblem and Zelda). But then Cilan was introduced in the anime, lol. And my oneshot about him was born. XD

    And then I got the idea to someday do a Pokemon/My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic crossover starring Keldeo and the six main ponies from MLP. And now I want to do a journey fic too. It's so weird, lol. But I have to at least finish one of my current fics before I start anymore. I've got too much going right now. xP
