If you have seen my Film Venture on the film (which can be seen right below this), then you know that I liked Pacific Rim. It was a fantastic summer blockbuster that does a terrific job at playing homage to giant monster movies. Most of the sources I've looked feel the same way. Sure, opinions can vary, but it lookslike the general response of Pacific Rim is positive.
So a good movie is going to look bad because audiences thought it would be good to see what Adam Sandler was up too. Well on the bright side, Pacific Rim will come up on top. One one hand, it could get good numbers next weekend; and perhaps get a strong following the film hits Blu-Ray/DVD. While the likes of Grown Ups 2 will be forgotten; and for good reason. Nevertheless, the box office results show that sometimes it is better to look at the quality instead of the quantity.
