OMG you guise, Pacific Rim

I'm a poor reviewer of stuff, so I barely do it. My only regular reviews are ..the Blurst of Times and half the time I don't even finish what I'm reviewing... then came Pacific Rim.

Pacific Rim was the raddest movie I have seen in FOREVER. For whatever reason It's been getting mixed reviews (Entertainment Weekly gave it a B-) and it was beat by Grown Ups 2 in the box office. But here's the deal no one really wants to talk about. Action movies are stupid. Even good ones like The Dark Knight or, oh I don't know lets say either version of True Grit, have ridiculous premises and giant plot holes. The well reviewed ones are usually the ones with snappy dialogue, unique art direction and great dramatic performances. Minus a couple shinning moments from Idris Elba Pacific Rim has none of that (ok it does have some pretty bad ass art direction).

What it does have is giant effing robots beating the crap out of and getting the crap beat out of them by giant Kiaju monsters. It's the most amazing 2 hour video game cutscene I've ever seen and it was well worth the money Loren paid for my ticket (I swear I'll pay you back). It excels so hard at what it tries to do it doesn't deserve its own award, it deserves its own Awards Show.

There's my review. Pacific Rim is the raddest movie I've seen in Forever. Go ahead and quote me on that, twice.

It's obvious that del Toro is trying to make a Godzilla-ish movie, but it's still fun for that matter. Good review Kevin.
