Because making the poster anything less than full size wouldn't do justice to the movie.

A specific win. (click to make it go BIG, or if your system unexpectedly crashes, extinct)

If you come out of Pacific Rim thinking its stupid, what were you expecting? An insight into the human condition? If you went into Pacific Rim thinking anything of the kind, then there’s only one stupid element in that situation, and it isn’t Pacific Rim.

However, if you go into Pacific Rim under the assumption that you are going to get a movie about enormous robots having enormous fights with enormous aliens, then that is what you will get. And get it you will, in spades.

You want deep characters? Okay, how about that moment when the giant mech ‘Gipsy Danger’ grabs a massive, slobbering alien by the head, winds up for a punch, but then rockets come out of its elbow and the giant robot rocket punches the massive, slobbering alien in the face?

There you go. Have that. There’s your “deep characters”. Puss.

The Protoype2012 was a special year for fans of genre and franchise cinema. Sam Mendes gave us the appropriately excellent Bond adventure Skyfall for the secret agent’s 50th anniversary. Christopher Nolan made it a hat-trick and finished off his Batman trilogy with the stunning The Dark Knight Rises. Karl Urban delivered a rendition of The Law all comic fans were waiting for with the reassuringly violent Dredd. We were also treated to a return visit to Middle-Earth by the man who took us there in the first place via The Hobbit. And perhaps the most nerdgasm inducing of them all; that which I thought I’d never see on the silver screen, a cohesive (not to mention brilliant) comic-book universe culminating in the joyous Avengers Assemble.

But it wasn’t just good news for the superhero fans, the horror fans were well catered for too. Horror studio and British institution Hammer continued it’s triumphant resurrection with the rightly praised The Woman in Black. Tim Burton got back on form with the flawless Frankenweenie. Ridley Scott went back to the future with the retro Prometheus and Drew Goddard almost re-invented the horror-show with the showstopping The Cabin In The Woods.

Also there was blogger Louise Boyd’s must see horror of the year, Rape Zombie: Lust of the Dead.

But now we’ve survived apocalypse and will soon be into Twelve Months of Terror then what have we got to look forward to?

Below are the trailers that have got Goats in the Machine most intrigued to see the films they’re flogging. (more…)
