This week, Gavia and Morgan are joined by culture writer Sulagna Misra for a discussion of Guillermo del Toro's fan favorite blockbuster Pacific Rim. They reflect on the film's success as a smart-dumb blockbuster, its elaborate world building, the mesmerizing woodenness of Charlie Hunnam, and how sequel Pacific Rim: Uprising stacks up to the original.
"Why ‘Pacific Rim Uprising’ is a great standalone movie but a lousy sequel," Gavia Baker-Whitelaw, The Daily Dot
"On 'Pacific Rim's' 2-year anniversary, we're still thinking about Drift Compatibility," Sulagna Misra and Lilian Min, Hello Giggles
"One Big Question: What Makes You Feel Powerful?," Jazmine Hughes, The Hairpin
