Pacific Rim Oculus Rift Guillermo del Toro

Like we said, the Legendary Pictures booth at San Diego Comic-Con is very Guillermo del Toro. On one side, Crimson Peak (Read about that here). On the other side is a unique, virtual reality experience called Pacific Rim: Jaeger Pilot. Attendees will sit down in one of three Oculus Rift stations and immediately be transported into the head of a towering Jaeger, ready for battle with an evil Kaiju.

Having never tried Oculus Rift before in my life, this was quite the transformative experience. It’s one you can check out on the Comic-Con floor in booth 3920 and maybe even at home as the experience teased something in 2017 at the end (though the new film is coming out that year too). Below, read about the whole Pacific Rim: Jaegar Pilot experience.

Terminator 2 Chase

James Cameron’s Terminator 2: Judgement Day is one of those movies we’ve all seen a million times. When it’s on television, its familiarity is like a warm blanket we can snuggle up in and can enjoy from any point. We even do other things while watching, without getting lost, because we know it so well.

In fact, we know it so well it’s probably lost some of its power. When we first saw the T-1000 emerge from flaming wreckage, or a Mack Truck fly off an overpass, they were eye-popping moments. Now, they’re very familiar. Unless, of course, they’re presented in new ways.

Maybe that means 3D, maybe that means seeing the film on the big screen the first time, or maybe it means the painstaking work of a YouTube team to recreate a scene from the film, nearly shot by shot, using Grand Theft Auto 5. Check out a Terminator 2 GTA chase below. Read More »
