When this movie is done and released, you'll be happy that he didn't take it on. It's going to be typical, ultra-mainstream Disney fare.
I wouldn't be surprised if it makes the prequels look good and memorable by comparison.

You mean like the crappy Pixar and Marvel Comics movies Disney has backed? Just checking.
Jan 7 - 10:08 PM
The Marvel movies backed by Disney are flat, unmemorable and fall short of what they could be. The only ones worth watching more than once are the Iron Man movies (yes, including 2) strictly because of Robert Downey Jr. Avengers is a one-time flick, one that disappears from the mind as soon as it's over. I have no interest in watching it again.
And the Pixar movies before Disney bought the company are far better than what came after Disney started meddling. Brave is a weak, typical Disney movie with Pixar graphics. There was much potential there, but instead Disney puts its ultra-mainstream, safe fingerprints all over it, wasting a perfectly good character.

The last Pixar film to be released before Disney bought the company was Cars. Since then Pixar has released Ratatouille, Wall-e, Up, Toy Story 3, Cars 2 and Brave. Now you can say what you want about the last two not being up to Pixar's usual standard, but the first four are arguably the best of what Pixar has made and are far from you'd call typical safe movies (I'm still shocked Wall-e even got made. It's quite possibly the darkest animated movie to carry the Disney name since Hunchback of Notre Dame).
And Marvel studios was playing things pretty safe before Disney bought them. I still think that the weakest film to come from Marvel Cinematic Universe was Incredible Hulk and it was released a year and a half before the purchase occured. Heck, Marvel in general has been pretty safe with their films no matter what studio they come from (with the exception of the first Hulk and maybe the first X-men).

If you turned on a camera pointed it at a wall a let it run for 2 hours and 20 minutes it would be an improvement over the prequels

And that's mostly what we'll all be getting once Disney starts churning out these Star Wars movies every two years. It's all just product to them. It will be some generic action/sci-fi movie, full of CGI, and tailored for mainstream, family audiences.

This is good news. I'd rather have del Toro make a full-on del Toro movie (fingers crossed that At the Mountains of Madness finally happens) than a Star Wars movie. I like del Toro more than I like Star Wars.
Jan 7 - 02:05 PM
I am getting a little tired of hearing about movie's Del Toro is NOT doing. I'd like to start hearing about movies he IS doing.

Don't Tase Me Bro
My thoughts exactly.
Del Toro has passed on too much stuff...maybe it's an ego stroke for him. Must be nice to turn down billion dollar franchises from major studio heads over and over and over again.

If Pacific Rim turns out to be a dud (I honestly don't know how it could be , but) perhaps he will drop the pretense that his shit don't stink. I like him as a director, but that doesn't mean he isn't a douchebag. Not saying he is, just appears he might be.
Jan 7 - 07:46 PM
What upsets me the most is if he would have done one of these they probably would have let him do At the Mountains of Madness. Sometimes ya gotta play the game to get stuff done. On one hand it's really sad that Hollywood makes people do that, but on the other I have a tough time feeling sorry for someone whose injury was attempting to be forced to make Star Wars :)
Jan 7 - 08:06 PM
I don't follow here. He's an egotistical douchebag because he doesn't do paycheck movies? Because he won't make a movie unless he actually cares about the material? These are good things, people. It means he actually has a personal vision, and he won't sell it out even while working in commercial films. He isn't a hack.

He bailed on the Hobbit. Now granted Jackson took over and all is not lost (yet), but I mean honestly who bails on the fucking Hobbit?
Jan 8 - 05:10 AM
I liked the Hobbit but I don't think that particular adaptation is Del Toro's bag (Tolkien being so descriptive, GDT seems to like designing his own shit). Hellboys/Pan's/Blade II/Mimic = shit don't stink

Alright, alright, I'll direct it. Gosh, Hollywood, you don't have to beg.

Bloody awesome comment xD

Matt Vaughn is the obvious choice for me or perhaps Bloomkamp.
Jan 8 - 12:18 AM
Bloomkamp over Vaughn any day.
