The third and final entry in The Hobbit trilogy is by far the strongest of the three.

For those who are hardcore about their kaiju consumption Guillermo del Toro‘s Pacific Rim is not perfect, but for those who are looking for a fun and thoughtful summer movie with more character than most, Pacific Rim should do the trick in a big way.

If big-budget summer movies are supposed to be entertaining, escapist fun, then Pacific Rim is a perfect example of that. I’ll be damned if del Toro’s silly, exuberant, dramatic Kaiju flick didn’t give me that “rah-rah” feeling, amplified of course by the sight of giant monsters and robots bludgeoning each other while towering over our puny cities and coasts.
