Pacific Rim is Tombstone pizza when you asked for Lombardi's, McDonald's when you wanted Shake Shack: A passable example of something that was never going to be the pinnacle of sophistication to begin with, but could have been so much better.

In the hands of Guillermo del Toro, a cinema savant with an unbridled imagination and a unique talent for creature and set design, Pacific Rim is a modern triumph and probably the most fun you'll have at the movies this summer.

Semiotics aside, Pacific Rim delivered what is simply the most awesome sci-fi-slash-action-adventure experience on the screen this year (and a chunk of this decade, actually), and it will likely win an Oscar.

The Summer's Ultimate Sugar Rush

Mike Ryan | Posted 09.07.2013 | Entertainment
Mike Ryan

Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim, a movie about giant robots that fight giant monsters, is a little over two hours of pure sugar. If you are in the mood to eat pure sugar, you will most likely enjoy Pacific Rim. I am not saying this flippantly - as in, "only a bad person would enjoy sugar." Everyone likes sugar. But not everyone is in the mood for sugar. And a lot of sugar can make you sick. If you are in the mood for something that's a little more substantial than a Pixy Stick, you might not like Pacific Rim.
