Hey, here’s another idea…you could always, y’know, GO OUT AND BUY IT. Pacific Rim is a really special film that deserves your money, especially considering how poorly it performed in the U.S. thanks to Warner Bros. and their near-nonexistent marketing.
Seriously, people. Pacific Rim does not deserve to be pirated. If you have a heart, scruples, any love for good cinema…don’t stream it. Don’t download it. Buy the movie. Support it. Support Guillermo del Toro’s vision and passion. Support a movie that brings back that original Star Wars-style sense of wonder. Support a movie that’s not a product of the remake machine, that takes familiar elements and creates something uniquely new out of them. Support a movie that embraces diversity. Support a movie where the women aren’t just vapid sex objects that contribute nothing. Support a movie that has a really fun atmosphere and a positive outlook. Support the best special effects and design work of 2013, Oscars be damned. Support a movie that shows better than many that have come out in recent years that if we can put aside our petty differences and work together, we can overcome any obstacle. Support giant robots punching giant monsters in the fucking face.
Buy Pacific Rim. Give this movie the support it needs and deserves. Make the studios stand up and take notice that we want more, and with luck there can be a Pacific Rim 2 someday.
