Let me be clear: I was born to love this movie. I grew up watching Voltron, Power Rangers and other sentai shows, and kaiju movies. I was a giant Gundam weenie for years and years. (Evangelion not so much, but that’s a rant for a different time.) This movie was designed to hit every single nerd squee button I possess all at once and turn me into a shrieking explosion of popcorn and glitter. It’s GIANT ROBOTS FIGHTING KAIJU HOW COOL IS THAT.

However, had it only been giant robots fighting monsters, I would have left the theater happy, but not been thrown into paroxysms of pure glee like I am now. Obviously, I’m capable of disliking movies that involve giant robots. I hated Transformers 2 and 3, after all.

But this movie was fun. And it was good. I’d even go so far as to call it groundbreaking, and let me explain why.

But there will be SPOILERS. [okay, I'm trying to use the "more" tag but I don't know if it's working, apologies if not.]

So I'm an emotional person, right, and I cry in movies all the time, but I legit cried for about an hour and a half watching this movie and HALF OF THOSE TEARS WERE BECAUSE OF AWESOME. I came out of there an emotional wreck.

I will also confess that one of your lines popped into my head when the flare guns had just pissed off the kaiju but then Gipsy was being deployed - the one, I can't remember what fic it's from, but the narration describes Wing Gundam as showing up "like a fucking metal angel" and that line has stuck with me. It seemed appropriate to the moment.
