Two wildly different offerings hit theaters this weekend. The first is a sci-fi/action/thriller about monsters fighting giant robots; the other is the sequel to a surprisingly successful comedy featuring a set of four men acting like children.

'Pacific Rim'

Giant monsters vs. giant robots. That's really all there is to it. If you like that sort of thing, you'll probably like this movie. If not, stay away.

Directed by Guillermo Del Toro

Starring Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Idris Elba, Charlie Day

'Grown Ups 2'

It's the last day of school, and it looks like the kids may be the ones teaching the eponymous grown-ups a lesson or two. If you liked the last one, you'll probably like this one.

Directed by Dennis Dugan

Starring Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade
