Pacific Rim, It Just Might Be the Summer's Best Movie

Remember when you were a kid and half of all tv shows not directed specifically at little girls were about giant robots, giant monsters or giant robots fighting giant monsters? Remember how freaking awesome that was? Now imagine that live action, I know you're picturing Power Rangers, but what if they had an actual budget and writers who weren't just cobbling together various Japanese tv shows for five year olds. This is one of the coolest movies I've seen in a long time and actually left me wanting to grow up to be a giant robot driver.

The Conjuring: It All Started with a Dead Baby

Thanks to a contest at Rue Morgue this Wednesday I was able to go to the advance screening of The Conjuring. Now my mom has been visiting me and because no one else was able to come she offered to join me when she learned the film wasn't a "gorefest". We went into it knowing nothing about the people behind the true story and after researching them after the film I'm glad we did. Read on if you are ok with perhaps a couple of smaller spoilers in a film that already had the ending spoiled by being a true story.
Got a free copy of the poster, no biggie.
