Maybe if we're lucky, the Chinese brontos will make up for the domestic shortfall.

Honestly there was no reason to expect Pacific Rim to even get this far. It's okay, Pacific Rim. There's no shame losing to Star Trek II and Bill&Ted, none at all. It's okay. You did good. It's okay. It's going to be okay.

I'm just saying that at no point does James T. Kirk erupt a goddamn vibrosword out of his wrist.

I really really want to rep for Wild Zero here, but Labyrinth and SMB are some of the top movies on my rewatchability pile. Wild Zero and Castle are both excellent, excellent movies that I have to be more in the mood for.

I hold to my statement that the Mario Brothers movie would be unquestionably the winner if it had never been called The Super Mario Brothers Movie, and was just some weird-ass movie about two plumbers entering an alternate universe where dinosaurs evolved from fungus to produce a dystopian grungepunk hellscape ruled by dinoTrump.

I really wanted to throw a vote at Labrynth, because it's so fucking good, but it just doesn't feel like a nerd movie to me. Tons of regular people adore that movie on its fantasy merits alone. Ain't nothing nerdy about it.

Wild Zero, on the other hand, is a movie only the biggest fucking dorks I have ever met have known about. That is a nerd movie if ever there was one.

BTW, Castle of Cagliostro is going to get a theatre run from Sept 14th to Sept 19th! Should be pretty fun.

Now we're at the part where all the music cuts out and it's just a lot of loud, echoing grunts to make sure you feel the pressure of the situation. There will be no good ending today.

It looks like Wonka's going to lose out this round too, so I have to agree.

Despite being a massive weeb in my day, I never saw the Metropolis anime. So of course there can only be fire and blood if it wins over Wonka because only things I've seen can be good.
