As much as I enjoyed the film, it does seem to be having an unusual effect on people. The only other time I've seen people this giddy about a film was with Galaxy Quest. Clearly, it tapped into something. What, how or why, I don't know, but I consider it valuable insight into what resonates with people.
Galaxy Quest was at least funny and a modern parody of sci-fi - specifically Trek. I put it in the same catagory as Space Balls but less funny yet enjoyable.

Pacific Rim on the other hand never intended to be amusing and most of the cliches IMO failed on many levels.
