First Official Synopsis for Guillermo del Toro’s PACIFIC RIM

by     Posted 2 years, 96 days ago

Director Guillermo del Toro finally has a new directorial feature film set for release next year.  He spent quite a while preparing to direct The Hobbit before leaving when he thought the film would be held up in MGM’s legal troubles for years, then he started prepping At the Mountains of Madness with Tom Cruise only to have Universal pass on the project in favor of things like Battleship.  All’s well that end’s well, as del Toro recently wrapped his first directorial effort since Hellboy II: The Golden Army, a monster movie called Pacific Rim.

Little details have been known about the plot for Pacific Rim other than the fact that del Toro promises “the finest fucking monsters ever committed to screen” and the film involves battles between human-manned robots and monsters.  A rumored plot synopsis surfaced back in March of 2011, and now Warner Bros. has released an official synopsis for the film that seems to confirm much of that earlier premise.  Hit the jump for the full synopsis.

THE ROCKFORD FILES: MOVIE COLLECTION, Volume 1 DVD Review

by     Posted 4 years, 268 days ago

The Rockford Files image James Garner (1).jpgThe Rockford Files (1974-1980) were always one of my favorite TV shows, both when on the air and whenever I could find since — in syndication, or on DVD and Hulu. In the former era, I thrilled to the complicated plots and oddball characters, and enjoyed the easy-going ruthlessness of James Garner’s Jim Rockford. Today, in addition to all that, each episode provides an instant return to the Los Angeles where I grew up — a place and time I despised then, but have since become somewhat nostalgic for.

Obviously, I was not the only Rockford fan who missed the genial detective: in the 1990s eight made-for-TV movies were issued; the first four of these are on this DVD. Not surprisingly, it is an older if not always wiser Rockford that Garner portrays — less given to running and fisticuffs, but still sharp (and not incapable of the physical stunts if he really has to use them).  More after the jump:
