What really appeals to me about Pacific Rim, besides the fact that I love that sort of stuff and grew up on it, is that at its core it is about shared human ingenuity and fighting spirit overcoming hopeless odds. I think this is something we can all appreciate about the film, even if the big robot/big monster action isn’t your cup of tea. And, yes, I was overjoyed at the announcement of the sequel last week.
And that is my thought of the day for this, the 238th birthday of the United States. Happy 4th of July to all my fellow Americans, wherever you are!
