1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Honestly, if it weren't for Idris and Del Toro, this would look like a lazy Michael Bay movie. I hope I'm wrong.

    Trailer didn't really give me the "lazy Michael Bay" vibe at all, but yes Del Toro is the main reason I am excited about this. It's a project I have been following for a while and have faith they are going to get it right. I wouldn't assume that just because Hollywood has cranked out some dumb popcorn flicks involving giant robots, that this is such.

    I wanted this to be more like Neon Genesis Evangelion but it feels more like Real Steel meets Godzilla.

    I'm still interested though since we haven't seen any footage of this "ancient Jaeger" that is written in the synopsis. It could be more bio-mech than the ugly/utilitarian looking ones shown in the trailer.

    Well yeah, the whole thing is Del Toro's love letter to Kaijin. It's homage to classic Japanese giant monster films, so it makes sense that you would get the Godzilla vibe from the trailer.

    Is the foghorn sound effect mandatory now for all action films?

    It's been the trend for movie trailers ever since Inception (which actually had it featured in the film). Eventually it will die off and be replaced by something else. Agree that it gets tiring.

    Really torn on this. The trailer makes it look like a piece of shit, but this was based on a very good original script by a decent writer.
