Re: Pacific Rim - Grading and Discussion

I thought it was wonderful. It was big, loud, and colorful, with a fair bit of cheese too. Just how this sort of film should be.

Though when I hear comments such as, how did a good movie like this flop, while something like Star Trek Into Darkness does well, I sorta have to roll my eyes. I mean, this film was an absolute blast, but at no point did I think that it's close to STID in terms of being a "good movie". The acting was passable at best, with Charlie Day being the bright spot to me, and the plot had some holes and contrivances. While watching Star Trek, there were moments where I was thinking, "Wow, this is a really good film, with some really good acting". I never thought that while watching this, I just thought that "wow, this was really fun". I don't think a good movie, and a fun movie are mutually exclusive, and this was a fun movie.
