It's certainly no coincidence that on the week Pacific Rim comes out, Cinema Sins chose to turn their Spotlight of Pedantry upon Godzilla, Roland Emmerich's 1998 remake of the classic Japanese monster movie.

I haven't seen this movie since it came out in '98, but man, I remember disliking it even then. Now I'm asking myself what if, instead of that movie, I'd gotten to watch Pacific Rim instead? Would my life be different now? Somehow cooler, or more imaginative? Probably.

How's everyone doing? Good? Who's going to see Pacific Rim this weekend? If you need one more recommendation, here's mine: I managed to work my way into an early screening a week and a half ago, and I'm planning to see it again this weekend, in IMAX. It kicks ass. See it in 3D if you can.
