Pacific Rim-job

The film is set in a world where soldiers piloting giant robots battle against giant monsters who have mysteriously risen from beneath the ocean.
Guillermo del Toro and Legendary Pictures Inc. will be hearing from Treyson & Clerisy (Solicitors and Commisioners for Oaths) about theft of Riddled's intellectual property.

Del Toro said the film will be "a beautiful poem to giant monsters".
So he's going to steal my poems too? Does he not realise that he will be dealing with Crun, Bannister and Gruntfuttock the finest made-up legal firm in Christendom?

Well, the Z.O.M.B.I.E. Legal Team and Fruitcake Factory wouldn't let him use zombies, so he resorted to your stuff. It's you own fault for letting your lawyers drink the Christmas Ale.

What the hell is it about Giant monsters, anyway? Does size really matter that much? Cannot smaller monsters be vicious, scary and even, in some scenarios and any plot leading to a blockbuster sequel, victorious? What is about size that makes a monster better at, well, monstering? The army can use artillery and bombers on a Giant Monster, and you must agree they're very hard to miss, while little, nimble monsters can monster on a smaller, more intimate scale, while remaining difficult to counter with conventional weapons. And then there's the possibility of swarms of small monsters overwhelming entire cities, leading to the rise of Doomsday Preppers and their preppie bunkers and warehouses full of, you know, STUFF which they had the foresight to prep and you didn't, and a final battle for the heart and soul of humanity.

Wolverines n shit...

If, at some point in 2013, the verb form 'to monster' catches on and becomes all the rage, gets co-opted into hipster culture and ultimately refers to the actions of a badly dressed member of a fraternity with bad breath who stumbles drunkenly around a party groping the coeds with reckless abandon, I expect some level of recognition.

Now carry on....

With giant monsters you only need one, mikey. Saves on the SAG budget.

I think you gentlemen should join in the class action lawsuit being brought by Jet Jaguar.
