It hurts, /tv/. She deserves better.

Pacific Rim really wasn't that good.
I enjoyed the effects and the world building but the characters and plot were very uninteresting.
I would've enjoy a sequel with an entirely new cast but that's not what was going to happen.
Holy shit this.
Something new comes out and /tv/ shits on it, then turns around and complains that the only blockbusters hollywood makes now are rehashes.
>>ORIGINAL NEW FRANCHISE
>opening monologue ripped off of Mazinger
>Gypsy Danger does the Tetsujin 28 throw, the Robot Jox hand thing, has a rocket punch and a breast fire
>the hangers are inspired by Patlabor
>the control scheme with two pilots side by side moving one side of the mech is straight out of Gear Fighter Dendoh
>the entire setting is ripped off of Godannar
>"Gypsy is analogue" is a direct reference to Giant Robo: The Day The Earth Stood Still
>the Cherno Alpha pilots have Scopedog visors
>the Cherno Alpha has the Scopedog piston punch
>The Striker Eureka does the Mazinger breast fire pose when shooting missles
Pacific Rim is derivative as fuck. Just because you didn't get the references, doesn't mean that its original.
>Hurr Its DERIVATIVE! ITS UNORIGINAL
Every hollywood movie is unoriginal and directly homages (or as you call it, "ripping") other sources.
But for real, when was the last time you saw a big budget, live action movie about mechs and monsters beating the shit out of each other. I can't think of any, because its all weeb shit.
It didn't even need a sequel, but it is upsetting that we won't get more adventure centric bigger budgeted mecha and such movies. Fuck a new hope 2.0, where is MY glib facsimile remake of Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla, or gamera gaurdian of the universe. I mean, japan doesn't seem to have the touch anymore since after Gamera the Brave,so this is all we got
Remember when /tv/ was praising this film as the second coming even though it was mediorce shlock with terrible pacing, effects and dialogue? Well nothings changed because now they are defending the prequels as well. Is there any board more embarrassing than /tv/?
anime is inherently trash , so its ok when its refined into a higher art , please dont bring it up again
