    A lot to love here - it plays with the medium in really fun ways and there are absolutely some great bits throughout. Still, I found stretches of this uninteresting and a little joyless.

    My second watch
    Very enjoyable and beautiful movie. Didn't really measure up to the almost spiritual experience I had the first time I saw it, partially because I'm not sure I fully buy the romance here and partially because my laptop is broken so I watched it on a tiny screen that's especially ineffective for something like this. Still, cool movie. Has one of the best scores ever.

    Probably the most painful experience of my movie-watching life. I don't exaggerate when I say that I spent a good majority of this with my eyes wide, my jaw hanging down, and my face contorted into a puzzled expression, in genuine awe of how horrendous and dull this is. The acting is beyond wooden, the dialogue is almost purely made-up bullshit being mumbled through, and someone needs to tell Snyder that slo-mo and symmetry don't necessarily make for good…

    For those days when your Pacific Rim could be just a little more Brighter Summer Day.
