Episode notes

Pacific Rim

IT’S MAXFUNDRIVE! To cap off the first week of the MaxFunDrive, we are introducing part one of our exclusive series, ‘The Ifechukwude Collection.’ This is a group of films curated by our very own Ify Nwadiwe. First up is a film that Ify has referred to as “perfect” on several occasions – 2013’s Pacific Rim. And to help us discuss this movie, we bring in “bad movie” expert and Kaiju know-it-all, The Flop House’s Elliott Kalan. With our esteemed guest, we dive right into the world of Kaiju, Mechas, and other big boys.
