    Pacific Rim: Uprising

    ★★★½

    I grew up on monster movies, when I was a kid I didnt care about human "character development", I just wanted to see monsters fight with other monsters, robots , you name it
    I still feel the same way. I watch monster movies for the monsters not for complicated characters. If I want to see a movie about character development, Ill watch Casablanca, The Wizard of Oz or even Superman..
    I enjoyed the movie for the action with the movie is about - KAIJU !

    Regional film making at its worst.. Gory effects, but lame and tame, by today's standards. Abysmal acting , decent story...but that's about it

    ★★★★½

    Possibly my favorite John Carpenter film. Moody, suspenseful, gory - just a terrific film. This has lots of action, one of the more incredible creatures with just outrageous effects and a lot of jolts to keep you on your toes. Kurt Russell is great in this. Actually so is in entire cast..and the music by Ennio Morricone is creepy good as well.
    The effects by Rob Botin are just fantastic.

    ★★★★

    Carpenter at his directorial best. A Great creepy classic. Sort of a good vs. evil story with religious overtones. Researchers find a cylinder with green gook in it. It sprays out onto one member and she starts to infect the whole team turning them into zombies. Add some yucky bugs crawling all over the place , Alice Cooper and street people attacking the cast as well, another great performance by Donald Pleasence and youve got yourself a great horror flick ! :)
