If you enjoy mash-ups, you might like Guillermo del Toro’s latest monster flick, Pacific Rim, a mix of Godzilla, Transformers, and Total Recall. The movie, like all self-respecting apocalyptic films, takes place in the not-so-distant future. Aliens in the form of gargantuan monsters have invaded Earth through a fissure in the Pacific Ocean. They’re crunching through coastal cities as a kid would crunch through a Tootsie Pop.
