Trailer Probe: Pacific Rim
Reviewed by RevolutionSF, @revolutionsf, © 2012

Format: Movie
By:   Guillermo del Toro
Genre:   Robots and monsters
Review Date:   December 14, 2012

Trailer Probe calculates the total nerdy enjoyment in nerd related movie trailers. Dork disengagement level is why you might not love it. Geek explosion content is reasons you will go nut-bonkers for it.

Pacific Rim

Dork disengagement level: I found nothing that wasn't excellent in this trailer. If you did, then congratulations to you, Professor Positive.

Geek explosion content: OH LORD GIANT ROBOTS.

Guillermo del Toro left The Hobbit and then he made this. He should almost do, then quit lots more movies.

It's giant robots fighting giant monsters. This may be the last movie I ever have to see.

Idris Elba's speech is priceless. It's President Bill Pullman in Independence Day multiplied by about a million.

The trailer shows robot warriors and a brief monster snippet. It ends with a giant robot getting knocked the filk out. Wait! Whose side am I on?

GLADOS is in it. Ellen McLain from Portal does the AI voice. That is five-star stunt casting.

Busy rewatching trailer. Handing off probe duties. Begin Portal references in three . . . two . . .

Tegan Hendrickson: It's hard to overstate my satisfaction.

Gary Mitchel: I'm making a note here: Huge success.

End Portal references.

James Palmer: Filk yes. I will be all over this thing.

Ginger Foster:OMG i WANT TO SEE THIS NOW!!!!!!

Nerd saturation level: Full 1 billion part saturation. Seek professional help.
