So I went to see "Pacific Rim" (2013)....

...and on my way there, a horrid thing happened to me. Namely:



And this crowning hunk of fail right here:



And then I finally got to Pacific Rim, which was meh, and thus devastating considering it stars Idris Elba and is helmed by Guillermo del Toro.

But at times, “Pacific Rim” feels like a movie divided against itself. On the one hand, it’s a major studio blockbuster hopeful, so the lead Jaeger pilot is Raleigh Beckett, an all-American type with a tragic past played by British actor and “Sons of Anarchy” star Charlie Hunnam. The problem is, Hunnam is essentially charisma-free in the role. It’s not that he’s bad. It’s just that with such visionary work being done elsewhere in the picture he’s the very definition of bland.  (Source)
I'm not overly familiar with the Kaiju/mecha genre, but I'd like to be. Especially when you've got someone like Idris Elba running the show.



*sighs blissfully* Lawd have mercy.

  3. I saw it in 3D. I got sea sick. It is definitely a boy movie. But at least I got to spend quality time with my baby Idris... Oh and my man too.
