‘Weekend Picks’: Previewing and Poking Fun at ‘Grown Ups 2′ & ‘Pacific Rim’

Movie Talk

This weekend's big releases are director Guillermo Del Toro's long-awaited (for the fanboy community, at least) "Pacific Rim" and the sequel nobody was clamoring for, "Grown Ups 2."

On the one hand: a visually dazzling genre film that promises high stakes battles between huge monsters and giant robots (which are, as our host points out, way more badass than the ones in "Transformers"). On the other hand: Adam Sandler being made fun of by a lacrosse pinny-wearing Taylor Lautner.

Our "Weekend Picks" host Nar Williams makes it clear which film he's checking out, but what are you planning on seeing this weekend? Let us know in the poll below. And please, go see a movie!
