Trailer Alert: Pacific Rim Uprising

About Pacific Rim Uprising: While I deeply appreciate the raw violence and the fresh ruckus: way too much Michael-Bay-Transformers quality…first Pacific Rim was awful a half baked del Toro.

I know some dug it, I know lots like me who loathed it. It had the potential to be delightful ruckus it let us all down. Too much emotion not even destruction. Less acting more smashing. Ruckus!

Plus the human to monster ratio? I’ve already been burned by Cloverfield (ugly wretched) sigh: Pacific Rim remains del Toro’s sloppiest movie: dude totally M. Nighted that mother. He knows better and should have done better. He did not. He was rightly fired. Sorry Guillermo…kinda.

Actually the more I think about Pacific Rim the less any of it makes sense. Delicious ruckus though.

If Pacific Rim Uprising doesn’t make money does that make it a…Jägerbomb? (Joke works better out loud…)

Sammy’s Verdict: If I “join the uprising” it’ll be on Netflix or maybe on an airplane.
