    So basically I think that Pacific Rim is as good of a monster/giant robot movie as you're going to get. It's not going to win any awards, and it wasn't crammed full of smoking hot technicians from the Star Trek Enterprise, but it was better than Transformers. As a guy who grew up on Gundam and Godzilla, I think this movie manages to do the genres justice, reiterating cliches with just enough novelty and modernity to make it enjoyable. I actually had feels during this movie because they set up a decent narrative without any glaring logical inconsistencies. I appreciated nods to Bladerunner as well. Though one could make the argument that this movie ramrods ethnic/geopolitical stereotypes down your throat, it represents characters from a glorified nationalistic perspective. The Jaegar pilots were venerated as rock stars.

    That said, I won't say Pacific Rim was a cerebral movie, nor was it full of enough social commentary or relatable contexts to satisfy a conversation about the significance/symbolism it held. It was just full of enough entertainment to warrant a re-watch for me.

    Lol.

    It was a popcorn movie, dude. If Michael Bay directed the exact same movie, it would've been exactly that. Nothing else.

    I thought The Lone Ranger was the best movie of the summer season.

    If Michael Bay had written in, then it would have severely insulted your intelligence before shovelling salt in the gaping wound.

    The wound would also flap and expose bone marrow. Like it was talking. Then it would actually start to talk and decide to insult you on top of it all, with salt spouting all over the floor.

    @bold most especially... 4REALZ?!?! Even me with my mucky Ti was spotting plot holes left and right. (Sign of the apocalypse right thar)

    Exhibit A: the horrible overexplaining of how the "science" works that reminded me of midichlorines.

    Exhibit B: "Know what I'm thinking." "I'm in your brain, dude." I would bet my bile duct that the movie was built around this line.

    P.S. It was nice that you gave it such a shot though, hehe.

    Actually I still don't understand how that thing was able to Stand Up In the Middle Of the Pacific Ocean which is like Duggar Vagina deep.

    That being said, I still liked the movie (even though I liked The Lone Ranger better).
