"To fight monsters, we created monsters" – that's the premise behind "Pacific Rim," the new film from director Guillermo Del Toro ("Pan's Labyrinth," the "Hellboy" series), that opens this Friday. But is "Pacific Rim" going to be a beast of a film – or will it flop upon landing?

If you're just listening to critics, there's no way to know: reviews are mixed, as some critics call the film cheesy and soulless while others praise the genre details and intense world building. But who needs critics when you've got high-profile celebrities?
I saw a pre-screening of Pacific Rim yesterday and it's easily one of my favorite movies of all time.

Saw PACIFIC RIM earlier today. It's all right if you're into movies that are awesome and gut-punch you with brilliance.
