Wasting time

I am sick.

So I watched two stolen movies.

What can I say - Pacific Rim is OK. It is a pure senseless bullshit without a single false note. Giant robots (manipulators, actually) machines fight equally giant monsters to protect humankind. Yeah, monsters that destroy cities are bad. Yeah giant robots crushing evil monsters are cool. And no attempt of any kind to hide inside it some message is great. Just a hard work to give me a hour of fun. Guillermo del Toro - you are the man.

Whereas KickAss2 is nothing but a boring shit that totally lost its chance to be great. Former superhero wannabes competing in the real world, trying to grasp real power and get some real revenge - what continuation of the first movie it could have been. Instead we have no real world. And no superhero world. Just hour and half of an empty pretense over the same lines.

Yes - pretense is the word. Total inability to create a story. Carefully hidden behind gags, quotes, parody on a parody within a parody. Sorry - you can't hide this elephant in a mousehole, even in a post-modern mousehole.


That's all, folks. Sorry for me puur Runglish, thank you for reading this.
