rms: pacific rim

I know we’re always talking about how Pacific Rim embraces the ridiculousness of the human race because “just build a giant robot to punch them in the face” is probably the most full-on human bullshit response we could have thought of to an invasion of giant aliens, but can we pause and also consider that the aliens are basically doing the same thing

like they wanted to invade us and their first thought about how to do so was “let’s genetically engineer giant fucking monsters that will crawl out of the depths of the ocean and trample cities”

Pacific Rim is just the story of two species that on a scale from 1 to 10 respond to every problem with a 17

Guillermo del Toro’s last five films have been:

1. A dark fairy tale as a metaphor for the effects of war on children, set in the midst of the Spanish Civil War
2. A superhero movie that features a war between mankind and magical creatures
3. An action movie where the heroes have to share their minds and bond emotionally so they can punch aliens from the sea better. Also Charlie Day is a scientist.
4. Basically what would happen if all three Bronte sisters got hammered and wrote a book with Lord Byron.
and 5. An adorable woman falls in love with a fish man. Not a merman. A FISH MAN.

No one in Hollywood is having more fun.
