To be honest, I was thinking Transformers vs. Godzilla too, and there's not a damn thing wrong with that idea at all. Great cast and director, so I'm in.

He will entertain...the 8-12 year age group.

This will either be a 10 or a 1. There is no in between.

As excited as I am for this movie, I can't help but agree with you.

Interestingly enough, I was reading one of Newsarama's Top 10 Lists (that seem to be the only thing they report about anymore) about their 10 most anticipated movies of 2013. They ranked this movie as #3 while earlier on the list they listed The Lone Ranger as #10. What was interesting about that is the fact that they claimed that the Lone Ranger had the larger potential to bomb than Pacific Rim or any other movie on their list. I have to admit that with Guillermo del Toro's involvement I am more excited about Pacific Rim myself but come on, really?

Definitely believe that. Lone Ranger is a western -- strike 1... starring Johnny Depp, whose box office record is spotty at best -- strike 2... about a character that no one really cares about anymore, much like John Carter -- strike 3.

Say what you will about Pacific Rim, but it's tailor made for summer success. Loud explosions, giant monsters, giant robots, action, spectacle.

The fact that it's got a good cast, and a really great director just puts it on another level.

Those are all very valid points and ordinarily I would absolutely agree with you but you have to consider the fact that the last time Johnny Depp worked with Gore Verbinski and Jerry Bruckheimer was on the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy. I am not trying to say that they were cinematic masterpieces or anything but they did make a ridiculous amount of money and unlike some of Depp's most recent outings at the box office, the trailers for the Lone Ranger capture more of the feel from the Pirates trilogy.

Like I said, I am very excited about Pacific Rim and I think that it has the greater potential to be the better movie. I just don't agree with Newsarama that the Lone Ranger has the greater potential to be the biggest bomb of 2013.

That means nothing to the public. The average joe doesn't know who Gore Verbinski is, and usually doesn't go to see movies based on directors. Success with one franchise doesn't mean success with another.

I think Lone Ranger could easily be a giant bomb, to be honest.

Also to take into account.. The Lone Ranger has an absurd $250 million budget.

Pacific Rim has a $150 million budget.

Pacific Rim has less ground to cover before making its money back.
