Big Mistake

What the hell is wrong with America?! No, no, no, forget politics and any current events making the US seem backward and mean-spirited – we can take it as read that those are part and parcel of our collective screwed up agenda and misplaced priorities – no, I’m talking about pop culture. I’m talking about the movies.

Why the bloody blue blazes isn’t Pacific Rim the #1 movie in the country? It’s not even #2 – it’s third behind Despicable Me 2 and Grown Ups 2. Grown Ups 2, people? Are you high?! Pacific Rim has giant robots fighting giant monsters. It’s not a perfect film by any means but it’s the perfect summer blockbuster – turn off your mind and open your eyes for an awesome 3D IMAX experience. And, yeah, it’s got that guy from Sons of Anarchy and the BBC’s Luther and that woman from Babel who was nominated for an Oscar and even one of the dudes from It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia but that’s not important because it’s got giant robots fighting giant monsters!

Seriously, what’s the hell is wrong with America?! People should be lining up around the block to see this thing. Action and adventure and sci fi and  – and – GIANT ROBOTS FIGHTING GIANT MONSTERS!

Fandango that son of a bitch right now if you know what’s good for the country.
