    "You can't just love something, you also have to take care of it."

    From the man who's taken care of cinema, and taken care of us all. Profoundly wonderous. Thanks, Steven, for everything.

    "Can't we give ourselves one more chance?"

    On holiday, looking out at the sea, suffocatingly eternal. The waves crash down on the shore, over and over, never to stop. My mind circles the drain, snapshots inside memories of snapshots. My heart feels like an abandoned waterpark, like a pool house at night, only there's no one to kiss. I have this fear that doesn't quite seem to dissipate. I'd like to get through this.

I see the appeal, though it didn't strike me in any special way.

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

    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…
