    The first hour is really strong but, aside from a few great scenes, everything past that ends up being less gripping and romantic than the first half would have you believe. Surprisingly vanilla, even with Park's effective setup and always gorgeous visual language.

    Really cute! I think the whole love triangle would work way better if Hawke's character wasn't only nice so sporadically. I get why he's jealous when he's jealous and panicked when he's panicked and the film intentionally points out his pretentions and mines them for funny/interesting scenes, but he still just comes across as a dick and I don't think his dynamic with Ryder is fleshed out enough for me to buy their attachment. Still, this is definitely full of fun and occasionally poignant moments. Quite loved Janeane Garofalo and Steve Zahn here.

    For those days when your Pacific Rim could be just a little more Brighter Summer Day.

    Probably the most painful experience of my movie-watching life. I don't exaggerate when I say that I spent a good majority of this with my eyes wide, my jaw hanging down, and my face contorted into a puzzled expression, in genuine awe of how horrendous and dull this is. The acting is beyond wooden, the dialogue is almost purely made-up bullshit being mumbled through, and someone needs to tell Snyder that slo-mo and symmetry don't necessarily make for good…
