    After seeing Pacific Rim: Uprising, I had finally decided to purchase the first Pacific Rim movie, and it was just as good as I remember. It's an enjoyable watch. Giant robots vs. giant monsters. What's not to love?

    Yes, the movie is a little cheesy but still fun. Looks great in 4K and who doesn’t love giant robots fighting Godzila-like monsters?

    Pacific Rim 4K - Kaiju vs. Jaeger

    Posted .

    There are very few movies that make me say "Wow" repeatedly. Pacific Rim is one of them. The 4K version has stunning scene after scene of vivid detail and color. The Dolby Atmos soundtrack is earth shattering during the Kaiju and Jaeger fights. I had to turn my Nakamichi sound system's bass down. The story and characters are very engaging with Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, and Ron Perlman giving fantastic performances.

    This is the second time that I have bought this movie on disc, and it definitely was worth the purchase price to upgrade to 4K. I am not going to get into the plot details, but am going to focus on the outstanding picture and sound quality. I can say without reservation, in terms of picture quality, that this is one of the best 4K transfers available. The sharpness, contrast, color, and HDR are simply amazing and must be seen to be believed. This is now my go to disc to show what 4K HDR can do. The 4K disc comes with a 4K digital code. The picture and sound quality of the digital version is comparable to that of the disc. If you are looking for a 4K disc to demo your system, this is the 4K disc to get.

    Pacific Rim [Includes Digital Copy] [4K Ultra HD B

    Posted .

    Short summary: a portal to an alien world opens under the ocean and giant monsters come out. The governments of the world team up to battle them, eventually doing so with Jaegers, huge robots piloted by two psychically linked pilots who must act in tandem to control their war machines. For a while this goes swimmingly, but the money dries up and the monsters keep coming, and soon the fate of the world rests on crusty and intensely likeable Stacker Pentecost (Idris Elba) who runs the world's last 4 jaegers in an endless war against the monsters out of Hong Kong. Pentacost has a plan to destroy the portal that brings the monsters to earth but to do that he recruits emotionally scarred Raleigh Becket (Charlie Hunnam) who must copilot with the impetuous and vengeful Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi) for one last big mission. Cue a ton of fighting and explosions. This film showcases a lot of newcomer actors to great effect. The burgeoning friendship between Mori and Becket is particularly well done (it is best described as a guy-girl bromance really) and the rest of the cast does science, runs from monsters, or is Ron Perlman (yes that's a role now) very effectively. Idris Elba gets to play to his strengths very well here and chew a lot of scenery as an AGING HERO with SAD SECRETS, and lest you think that del Toro will craft a strong black lead then stick him in an office like every other director, rest assured that Pentacost punches monsters in a big robot too. Of course the fights are the meat of the film and they do not disappoint. The robots and monsters convey a powerful sense of size and weight, as their enormous fists, tails, and jaws gnash and hit with weight and authority. Fights are almost wholly digital affairs and perhaps to save money they are usually in rainy darkness, but they are still exciting and tense. The multi-stage throwdown in Hong Kong at the film's peak is one of the best giant monster battles ever committed to film and I say that as a die-hard Godzilla fan. Some critics have panned this film for a lack of depth, but the truth is that it does what it wants to- deliver a summer blockbuster- and it does so with unprecedented depth. Its writing, performances, and effects easily put it on par with The Avengers as a smart summer action romp, and to disrespect this film because it's not another Pan's Labyrinth is sort of like saying a really good ice cream sundae is undeserving of your time because it's not a baked Alaska. Lest we overlook it too, Rim is also an ORIGINAL film in an industry plagued by remakes, sequels, and general unoriginality. You don't have to buy it (although I would) but you should absolutely see it in theaters or rent it at least once. Don't miss out. PROS -Endearing performances from a young cast (with help from some veterans) -Way, way better than Cloverfield -Blends Artsy del Toro's flair for eerie creatures and dream imagery with comic geek del Toro's love of SMASH POW BAM -Effective ear bug soundtrack will stick with you -Really good 3D if that's your thing CONS -Some of the other Jaeger crews are not very well developed -The very beginning crams a lot of exposition in pretty fast UPDATE 10/21/2013 So I received and watched the disk. The standard version of Rim comes in a handsome slipcase with a fun holographic cover that APPEARS to be removable (although a true collector won't want to of course...). The BD itself is easily navigable and all trailers are skippable. There is a whole other disk of special features which I have not yet watched. Overall this feels very premium, more like a collector's edition than a basic retail set. The case doesn't even have cutouts to save material as many BD cases do nowadays. Picture quality is outstanding overall. On the small screen, and without the slight softening effect of 3D, this actually reveals some sort of cheap-looking CGI in the first Kaiju encounter during the opening narration*. Thankfully, subsequent battles look great. The movie is free from excessive cleanup and boasts the odd bit of grain, making it look very filmic and natural, even when big monsters and big robots are clubbing one another with bits of dockyard. Audio is suitably bombastic and rich, with voices, music, and effects all mixed to a consistent, listenable volume range (I'm looking at you, first two Iron Man films on home video). Overall this is a great Blu Ray and watching it at home the film held up to my initial high opinion. * This is probably because much of this sequence was produced long before editing of the remainder of the film was completed.

    Nice 4K transfer...but the sound...the LFE was awesome! Gave my dual subs a work out, especially during the fight scenes. My set up is 7.2, no Atmos, so I cant comment on that. But overall, sound mix was good for me. 4k really brought out the visual sequences, colors and fx.

    Shogun Warriors Gets a Facelift in a GOOD Way

    Posted .

    The LA Times calls this film "Spectacular" for a good reason. When hordes of alien giant monsters start attacking from the ocean humanity must fight back hard. Using high technology we develop giant robots to fight the giant monsters. The robots require two pilots and were usually too slow to fight the monsters. Now soon to be defeated, humanity must call on a veteran pilot who is retired and a rookie pilot with very little experience. Remember The Shogun Warriors(giant robots fighting giant monsters) comics from Marvel in the 70's? This reminds me a LOT of those. As a matter of fact, this film is pretty much exactly the same thing. Giant, man-made robots with human operators inside fighting giant monsters to protect Earth. Imagine Godzilla fighting giant robots that resemble Master Chief in Halo(famous video game) and you are right on the money. If you are a fan of Godzilla, Gamera, or King Kong movies, this will be a favorite of yours and I guarantee it! AWESOME CGI! Incredible visual spectacle(s)! It is rated PG-13 for violence and nothing else. One thing for all you Sons of Anarchy fans out there(I am a BIG fan of that show!).You will EASILY recognize more than one person starring in this film! The Shogun Warriors from the 1970's comics meets modern CGI/special effects. 'Nuff said. Excelsior!

    Enjoyed this feature and a must to add to your 4K Blu-ray collection. This is a reference quality feature that will show off your system and if you are lucky enough to gave 3D playback grab the 3D Blu-ray as well. No disappointments here.

    Good, if your solution to Godzilla is a face punch

    Pacific Rim is a movie about giant robots piloted by mind-melded humans struggling to save the world from Godzilla and friends by punching said monsters in the face. There are any number of things we can find wrong with that sentence, but if you can accept the premise or cheer it on, this movie might be a good fit for you. It's a visually strong movie. The design of the monsters and robots, sets, and the major action set pieces are the highlight of the film. Its premise is as straightforward as I first stated, and its archetypes are straightforward translations from adolescent adventure stories. This movie plays it straight without no irony, which I found refreshing compared to overwrought and often cynical scifi movies that came out in the same year. On the down side: This movie not only beats up on monsters, but also science, practicality, and subtlety. If any of these are your personal trigger, it might ring false to you. The human characters are with a few exceptions are defined by context that comes from the tropes they are meant to represent. While the movie devotes quite of bit of time to the human elements, it leaves a number of things hanging and what you get out frequently depends a lot on what you brought with you. Dialogue is not going to win awards, and many of the performances are not subtle at all. There's also a curious case of accent musical chairs, with the mismatch in nationalities of various actors and the characters they play, which does leak through at various points. Certain things the audience might have wanted to see, such as the exploits of other pilots or some additional action to break up the slow stretches get relegated to off-hand references. If the monsters and battles are the draw, there is a long stretch in the movie where there's not much of it. For me, this is sort of a guilty pleasure that I'm not particularly guilty about. It has spectacle, and yet I found that it wasn't done to excess for me. Its story is simple and its notes on camaraderie and self-sacrifice are hit pretty heavily, but I suppose I found the lack of cynicism that was so prevalent in other blockbuster movies to be a reason to find Pacific Rim likeable.

    ROBOTS VS KAIJU STILL LOOKS AMAZING!!!

    Posted .

    Pacific Rim is one of those excellent huge-scale summer spectacles that has carried on since its release for mainstream audiences. Guillermo Del Toro's Giant Robot movie still remains a spectacular movie that ignites the inner 10-year old to any viewer, 18 & beyond! On Blu-Ray, it is highly recommended to purchase as the movie looks beautiful and stylish to behold on your television, playing on the ration quality like Avengers and Avatar for consumers to savor every detail in the movie with a stellar soundtrack of Monsters and Robots duking it out for the fate of the human race. Also, there are plenty of extras to behold; the combo pack offers over 2 hours of bonus features to last to your cinephile heart's content. Unfortunately, the UC code is not included since it has expired for some time now, but anyone who has Flixster, can convert the dvd into a digital copy to add for your UV library, though a small price is required. Go buy Pacific Rim, it's worth the money!!!

    A Reference 4K Disc for Both HDR & Atmos

    |

    Posted .

    I always enjoyed Pacific Rim in the past for its stunning visual special effects. The 4K disc was finally on sale recently and I picked it up and couldn't wait to finally sample the 4K. The video quality is outstanding and the HDR provides a ton of color pop throughout the film. I only wish it was available in Dolby Vision on disc. I think the Dolby Vision looks better than standard HDR, and you can get that on VUDU. However, I prefer discs over streaming sources. When watching on VUDU, you get some mild distortion around fast moving frames. It's not a huge deal, but it is noticable to me. Now to the sound, the Dolby Atmos is excellent. You can a ton of sound field effects in all your surround speakers including upper speakers. The base is pounding throughout. I love the base when the baby kaiju is being born. Overall, this is one of my top 4K discs that I would consider to be a reference disc for sampling for others. A definite recommended purchase for video & audiophiles.
