The first is a no-brainer. Guillermo del Toro's latest movie features giant kaiju monsters fighting giant robot mechs. Throw in Idris Elba, Charlie Day and Ron Perlman... what more could you ask for? Pacific Rim looks like it will be non-stop action and fun with some sincere heart thrown in knowing Del Toro's work.
Next is a much smaller movie called Upstream Color by Shane Carruth. This one looks like you'll need to bring your thinking cap along with you to the theater. Carruth has only release one other feature previously, a movie call Primer. Primer is one of my favorite movies. I've watched it many times and always think I have a handle on it, but I know I don't. It might be the best time travel movie of all time. It's scope is so big, but really its a very small film. Reported made for only $7000, it took the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance in 2004. So here is his new one, and it doesn't look like he's going to take it any easier on the viewers.
