Participation Needed!

Two posts in one day.  Yeah, I know the next post wasn't supposed to come until Wednesday, but I have a really amazing reason for this!  Simply put...

I was very pleasantly impressed with Pacific Rim, even so far that I would easily put it in my Top Ten Most Favorite Movies...Ever list.

Well, that's great, right?  But what's with the title of this post?

The deal with the title is that (long story short) I'm going to be doing a podcast review of Pacific Rim... and I need your help to make it awesome.

Do you remember last December when I did a review of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey by answering questions you guys asked me about it?  Well I thought that was a lot of fun, so I'd like to do it again.

So what can you do to help this review be great?

Ask questions!

Ask all sorts of things!

If you've seen the movie, ask me about specific scenes, characters, or whatever.  If you haven't seen the film, ask about anything that you'd like to know more about it.  Specifics, generalizations, even statements.

Anything goes.  Everything is game.

But in order for this to become reality, I really need you guys to ask questions.  If I don't get any questions then I won't be able to do this, but I know I can trust you guys.  =)

You can ask your questions by commenting on this post or by tweeting me @EdessaCarrick, and you can ask as many as you want.  No maximum.

The only thing is that your questions have to be in by this Friday (the 13th) at 5:00 p.m. CST in order for them to be included in the podcast.  All questions posted before then are guaranteed a spot in the review.  Any posted after that deadline likely won't get in because I'll be recording it on Saturday.

So let those questions rip, guys!  I'm excited to see what you'll come up with!

  1. Since I haven't seen the movie yet, do you think you first part of the podcast be spoiler-free, and then give a spoiler warning before talking about the spoilers?
    Here are the questions (I think I already know some of your answers, but it should be fun):
    Have you seen any mecha or kaiju anime genre (that is what was said to have inspired the movie)?
    If I think of more questions I will return!


  2. 1. why do you like it so much?
    2. does it have a cool soundtrack?
    3. outside of the whole robots-fight-aliens-from-ocean thing, what is the movie about?

  3. Hey. Long time no see. Just so you know, I’ve nominated you for the Dragon Loyalty Award. I know you've not commented on my blog, but I figured that you're a pretty loyal person in general. ; ) Basically, if you want to accept it you need to post about it on your blog, and in that post pass it on to 15 others and tell 7 things about yourself. Yeah. That’s a fair amount to do. Don’t worry, I won’t be offended if you choose not to accept it. =P I almost didn't accept it myself.


Please keep it clean. And "if you can't say somethin' nice, don't say nothin' at all" (Thumper from "Bambi"). Other than that, all comments, suggestions, requests, questions, concerns, and compliments are more than welcome!

Post away! :D
