Episode 146 - Pacific Rim and Atlantic Rim

Episode 146 - Pacific Rim and Atlantic Rim

This week we kick off a month-long exploration of The Asylum. Arguably The Asylum is most known for its mockbusters (or tie-ins, as they like to call them) and its certainly the format that has launched them as a company so we start things off with a comparison of one of their tie-ins, along with the movie it is tying in to. If you have read the title, you have probably already guessed that means its going to be Pacific Rim squaring off against Atlantic Rim. 
How do these two films compare? Can a movie with a budget of $500,000 possibly hope to compete with a movie with a budget of $190,000,000? Which movie will have the more coherent plot? And will either or both films be worth your time? For the answer to these and many other questions, tune into this week's episode!
