Everything Wrong With “Pacific Rim” In 9 Minutes Or Less

I generally like the Cinema Sins videos. They’re snarky and fun. This one for Pacific Rim is fun, too, but come on, Cinema Sins….Pacific Rim is an easy target and these sins are too lengthy. Not your best work. But it’s still good enough to post and share. πŸ™‚

    “Pacific Rim is an easy target”

    Well it would be if there were not so many critics who fawned over this steaming pile.

  2. The first problem with this video is that 9 minutes is too much to waste on this awful film. The second problem was that 9 minutes was nowhere near enough to cover everything wrong with it. He never even got to all the massive inappropriate character problems.

    But it was still funny. Thanks.

    Why did the critics fawn over this stinking thing?

  3. If you’re expecting a kaiju film to be hard SF, you have literally come to the wrong genre. These films are about stupidly big monsters smashing up cities and the things humans do to stop them. I wouldn’t actually mind seeing a hard SF take on that, but I don’t think it would ever happen because the idea is inherently dumb. But fun and well-executed along the way.

    I didn’t watch the full video, by the way. I stopped when they made the ‘ironically’ racist joke that wasn’t really ironic.

  4. They forgot about the analogic mech.
