I even said “Wait. WHAT?” Not that I cared; and I’m sure that I could come up with a plausible reason to explain that sudden revelation away if I was going to bother with distinguishing it from all the other, obviously not really that important, niggling details about Pacific Rim. This is a movie about giant robots hitting giant monsters. You have to just go live in the Moments of Awesome for this one.
I understand that there are people out there who do not want to see giant robots hit giant monsters, and I do not want to criticize your tastes in cinema. But if you ARE one of those people and you have not yet seen Pacific Rim then I have to wonder at your priorities. For the love of God GO.
You are not a bad person if you don’t want to watch movies like that. Honest and true. BUT ANYBODY WHO DOES NOT WANT ME TO WATCH MOVIES LIKE THAT IS A BAD PERSON. Pretty much by definition. I am, to quote the person at the link above, part of “the core audience of people who want to see giant robots hit giant monsters.” I’d appreciate it if studio wars stayed out of the way of my acquisition of same.
