Neural Bridge Activated – Tim Barley Joins Mike Reyes’ Review

Cocktails and Movies Is Ready to Jaeger-Bomb some Kaijus and Go To The Mat for Guillermo Del Toro!

Cocktails and Movies pacific rim main posterDeep in the Pacific Ocean, a rift of interdimensional proportions has been opened. We didn’t know how and we didn’t know why, but that rift would change the world we knew it. Out of the rift came the Kaiju (Japanese for “beast”), gigantic monsters aiming to wreak havoc on the world’s coastlines. Conventional weapons took too long to defeat the Kaiju, so in a desperate bid for our survival the Jaegers (German for “hunter”) were born. Piloted by intrepid jockeys like Raleigh Becket (Charlie Hunnam) and under the watchful eye of Marshal Stacker Pentecost (Idris Elba), the Jaeger program just might save us all. That is, if humanity can learn its lesson and fight the Kaiju with half of the energy it uses to fight amongst itself.

The studios hope that you’ll spend your hard earned paper route money going to see them again. And again. And again… Not all movies are made equally and not all recoup their budgets. But, we think that we’ve picked a number of films that will both entertain AND make a boat load of money.
