Highly recommend The Raid:Redemption playing now on Encore I think. Police strike team leads all-out assault on inner city high rise under the control of a ruthless drug lord. The mayhem escalates from floor to floor, as the strike team battles the various bloodthirsty tenants on their way up, using guns, knives, fists, and explosives to unleash an unreal level of mayhem.

The climactic battle between three of the key characters at the end is one of the most brutal, extended fight sequences ever filmed this side of They Live. Seriously, it's that good.

Due to excellent international box office numbers, a sequel to Pacific Rim is likely.

While there were glaring flaws, I loved when Pacific Rim worked.  Hopefully they'll write better human characters next time around.

Best news I've heard all week!

I actually went back again last night to catch this in IMAX 3D. Holy hell, it was awesome. The damn things practically leap out of the screen at you. Truly an immersive experience.

Not sure where they would go with a sequel, but as long as Del Toro is on board it's got to be amazing.

I was thinking something along the same lines, Bill.

I saw The Conjuring today.  It was quite scary.  Legitimately.

Did anyone see Elysium and have any comment on it?  Or Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters? 

I was going to skip both but I have a free ticket that expires the end of the month and nothing opening this week or next looks any more interesting to me so figured I'd catch one of these if they're any good.
