The Jeff Rubin Jeff Rubin Show: ‘Pacific Rim’

This week on the Jeff Rubin Jeff Rubin Show it’s all about Pacific Rim. Jeff sits down with Patrick Cassels (Collegehumor) and Nick Kocher (BriTANick, Much Ado About Nothing) to talk about the movie and what they thought about it.

“Obviously it’s silly to see the movie twice. There is not a lot of subtelty in the story and characters to pick up on, but I actually would recommend seeing the movie twice because there are a lot of cool design things, like details of how things work and fleeting shots.” - Jeff Rubin on whether you should see the movie twice.

“We get one of these movies a year. One movie that’s not based on a book, a comic book, a sequel or anything. There is one blockbuster a year that rises above.” - Patrick Cassels on Pacific Rim

“This movie accomplishes the rare feat of being extremely artful and thoughtful with CGI and extremly large scale computer generated effects. It’s been made so much easier to do that, so it’s cool to see someone pushing the boundaries of what you can do with CGI.” - Patrick Cassels on the movie’s use of CGI
