Spoilers For Pacific Rim

Pacific Rim spoilers to share with your friends.

  • Idris Elba’s dance scene with Charlie Hunnam is really excellent.  They alternate leading.
  • The secret Jager is called “Rosebud.”
  • There’s a scene where Senators note that the science is not fully in agreement that the smashed cities were caused by giant monsters.
  • Even the character’s pets have Jagers, which is probably going to lead to an animated spinoff.  Triple Jager Hamster Vulcan is exceptionally cute.
  • Bill O’Reilly notes “Monsters appear, cities are smashed flat, you can’t explain it.”
  • There’s a powerful scene where Charlie Day’s character asks “What would Godzilla do?”
  • For a powerful moment, the tabloids in the film ignore the Kardashians.
  • There’s a great dramatic scene where the heroes argue who gets to form the head.  This gets deeply metaphorical.
  • Rinko Kikuchi’s line “my entire anime collection has been leading up to this” is a real tear-jerker.
  • Burt Gorman’s character has a shockingly violent scene where he gets the designer of the Jagers to admit the names are just random words his five year old strung together.

Business Idea: Geek Navitiy Scenes

After seeing this geek polyglot nativity scene, I had a business idea: custom geek nativity scenes.

Imagine taking action figures, customs, etc. and creating – and selling – geek themed nativity scenes.  Star Wars, Star Trek, Dragonball Z, Sherlock (though you’d probably need 3 Sherlocks as the 3 wise asses), etc.  That’d definitely sell on eBay, Etsy, and maybe just as a commission.

Merely a thought.
