A round of applause from world leaders?

"Congratulations!"
"Congratulations!"
"Congratulations!"

So I don't have high hopes for this movie.

I might see it after it comes out, like... on netflix or something.
Wait, so why is it you don't have high hopes for this movie?

Del Toro isn't exactly a lightweight when it comes to directing movies, and there are a lot of nifty little details about the movie that indicate it will be more like a big loveletter to the mecha/kaiju genre (the monsters are even specifically referred to as 'kaiju') than a generic Michael Bay style explosion flick.

The problem with that is most of the people who go see it will be expecting a generic Michael Bay style explosion flick, and all the references and little in-jokes will sail over their heads. This thing is looking like it'll be brilliant, but only to the folks who are familiar with the source material.

M. Night Shyamalan was once considered the golden boy of Hollywood, and he could do no wrong.

I'd like to point out that the Del Toro, while he may have made Pan's Labrinyth (a true orgasm of style and artwork, with a compelling story), he also made Mimic and Blade 2. His is hardly perfect.

Even if it is a giant homage to old monster movies... I don't like old monster movies. I don't hate them, I just don't have any interest in them. So this movie is already below the threshold of interest. And now for the "you just hate it for no reason" comments...

In fact, the entire point of a trailer is to show me something that will make my brain go "hey, that's interesting, let's go see that, and I will release some of those neurotransmitters you like so much". This trailer did not do that, regardless of the intent of the director or the plot.

I just have don't want to see it.

I like how a reference to a shitty spinoff of a japanese sentai series would somehow make this movie interesting in your eyes.

Who the fuck is GlaDOS ? Also, why do they still use fake robot voices when Microsoft Sam spoke better 10 years ago. That's one thing bugging me (also, computer noises in every damn tv program/movie). Trailer makes me want to see the movie. Yeahh.. thought of Evangelion while watching it

GlaDOS...you know, from Portal? The cake is a lie?

Also, the voice isn't synthesized at all. They specifically got the same voice actress and use very similar fx processing on it, which is what kinda bothers me, because it's SO iconic that a lot of people instantly associate it with Portal.

Del Toro's game project fell through...Is there half i mean HALF a chance that the portal tech used in this game could at all be related to...oh god. You GOTTA wonder now. It isnt ENTIRELY out of the realm of possiblity that Valve could have their hands in this...The copyright would CLEARLY extend to that voice. THIS just became a LOT more interesting now that i've given it some thought.
