Pacific Rim

I just saw Pacific Rim. It (mostly) doesn’t suck, but wasn’t great either.

Also, it tweaked one of my pet peeves: equating a nuclear meltdown with a nuclear detonation. Folks, a nuclear reactor isn’t a nuclear weapon, any more than plastic utensils are plastic explosives. Just because they share a name doesn’t mean they’re the same thing. You can’t make a plastic fork blow up, and you can’t make a nuclear reactor detonate. It doesn’t work that way.

Will someone please tell Hollywood?

  1. Are you a scientist? No, I think not. It’s got the words ‘nuclear’ and ‘reactor’ in it. Hollywood rests its case.
