1. HEY DID YOU KNOW PACIFIC RIM IS NOW ON HBO LIKE ALL THE TIME :D :D :D

    1. Oh man, when Mako puts Raleigh on his knees for the first time and Stacker tells her more control?  And the camera cuts back, you see the her eyes are on Raleigh already, and then her eyes flick upwards for a bit?

    One reading: she’s been watching Raleigh’s torso and body less than his face, and when Stacker tells her more control, she looks back to his face and takes a breath. 

    Another reading, since that shot that shows us Raleigh  on his knees staring up at Mako with his heart in his eyes (and a boner in his pants) is actually the first shot where Chuck is in the background: SHE IS LOOKING UP AND THINKING OF CHUCK

    AND MORE. CONTROL. MISS MORI.  

    2. Now that I can watch Pacific Rim on demand, I can tolerate Newt  a lot better?  Beause now I know soon, it’ll be time for the parts of the movie I care about, and thanks to reading lots of fic about Hermann and Vanessa and Hermann and Mako and. Yeah.

    3.  Mr. Rhod really dislikes the scenes with the GD testing sequence.  It’s a good thingk Pacrim didn’t come out until after we’d been married for a while.

    4. TENDO’S CANTONESE IS FUCKING INCOMPREHENSIBLE

    5. Mr. Rhod: So why do we have to watch it again?

    Mr. Rhod: Because maybe this time it might be different?

    Rhod: BECAUSE IT WILL BE THE SAME AND RALEIGH IS GOING TO SAY THAT HE’S GOING TO TAKE THIS SIDE BECAUSE HIS LEFT SIDE IS SHOT, AND THEN MAKO IS GOING TO ROLL UP AND HE’S GOING TO LOOK AT HER LIKE THE SUN HAS JUST COME UP AND SHE IS GOING TO GO :> AND ASK HIM IF HE IS GOING TO SAY ANYTHING AND 

    6. WHEN CHUCK IS INSIDE YELLING AND YELLING AT STACKER INSIDE HIS OFFICE, did you notice that Mako is just staring DEATH DAGGERS at the door?  And then she very deliberately closes her eyes and takes a deep breath, and she keeps her eyes closed for the first few seconds Chuck comes charging out in ery much a I AM ZEN AND IAM OVER THIS and then opens her eyes?

    And then .5 seconds later is standing right the fuck up at Chuck with her face twisted up and ugly and her jaw fucking SET.  Chuck isn’t THE EX to her, but he knows how to push the buttons, and just, I am never going to get tired of the way that Chuck deliberately turns back to her and goes bitches and leash and ugh

    thaaaat’s why Raleigh says apologize to her, guys.  Because Chuck is gunning for Mako, not for hiiiiiiiiiiiiiim, and ugh, did you notice that the GD fight theme kicks in RIGHT AS RALEIGH STARTS PALM-BLOCKING CHUCK WITH MAKO’S MOVES

    7.  Ugh, guys, I am never going to get over the utter HEARTBREAK on Stacker’s face after he gives Mako permission to be dismissed and she is no longer in the room.  And the way he turns his head and has to control himself and 

    8.  God, it is so delightful that Stacker sort of paces while Raleigh yells that line in front of the elevator.  Like.  His impatience for Raleigh to get the fuck done? And the power in the shoulders and the face.   That’s where the stuff about his daemon being a panther or big cat comes from. 

    9. It’s interesting, but in this movie, Idris Elba is actually shot to be less-tall than the other actors than he actually is?  If you look in the Kwoon scene, Mako comes up to his shoulder or a little above.  Elba is 6’4, and legit that height.  Kikuchi is listed as 5’5, but it’s an actor 5’5 so.  Yeah.  Especially when you see the Kwoon training scene footage where she is in bare feet next to Hunnam and is mid-bicep on him and only to the shoulder when she is standing totally straight? And they do all kinds of stuff, too, to glid over Hunnam being a fair bit shorter than Elba — he’s listed at 6’1, and i s2g, that is another actor height, because yeah.  no.

    Can I just say that one of my very favorite parts of Winter Soldier was Nick Fury cocking an eyebrow at the police officers side-eyeing his expensive vehicle and sneering, “You wanna see my lease?”

    Because the idea of Nick Motherfucking Fury having to deal with shit as disgusting and petty as racial profiling is sort of painfully realistic and heartbreaking.  He’s hugely, massively powerful, and he’s sitting in his bulletproof car pondering decisions of worldwide import, but also he gets pulled over sometimes and asked for his registration because the police assume he stole it.  

    Ack.  I was just so pleased that they included that line.

    yeah the import of that really struck me the second time I watched the movie.

    The driving while black bit was one of my favorite parts.

    Yeah, this really struck me the second time when I wasn’t just sitting there terrified his car would blow up at any moment. It really makes you think of all the shit he had to go through to get where he is today and still the police give him the side eye when he drives up in an expensive car. Also, obviously we find out later they’re HYDRA agents but the car chase scene is literally a bunch of white guys in police uniforms shooting at a single black man and it’s an image we’ve seen a million times (on the news, in the movies, even on Agents of Shield with Mike Peterson) only this time the police are the bad guys and we’re rooting for Nick. I just thought, especially in the context of scene preceding it where it’s made clear that Nick’s had to deal with racism and profiling that it was a interesting choice to make HYDRA the police.

    This post is golden and I thought the same thing as well.

    Until you find out that the police were HYDRA, you really thought it was a situation where they were eying Fury suspiciously because it was a black man driving a nice SUV in Washington D.C. aka the ‘driving while black’ issue.

    And you aren’t made to feel like you’re paranoid because he thought that too.

    Shit happens so many times it’s ridiculous and that was a great scene because it reminds you that racial profiling of black men/people still exists no matter how much money or power the black person in question has.

    Nick Fury knows where he stands both inside and outside of S.H.I.E.L.D. and he knows his Level 10 clearance does nothing for him when he’s driving next to DC police. And a black dude running from a bunch of white “cops” in an expensive looking car? Yea no, as if any random person on the street would see that and think Fury was in the right in that situation. Genius move on HYDRA’s/Pierce’s part.

    Really glad they slid that in there.

    Every time I see someone talking about Stacker and Chuck drifting, all I can think of is the bit where Tendo tells them the Kaiju are stopping and Pentecost effectively halts the Jaeger by refusing to go forward when Chuck clearly wants to keep moving.

    There’s also the implication that Stacker’s control of the jaeger is such that he can literally override his copilot, and that does not sit well in my head. Because a guy who can pilot a jaeger to that degree doesn’t need a copilot; he needs a warm body to fill the second rig - at which point, any damn body will do.

    I like Stacker, I ship damn near everything, but holy cow. If I were Chuck, would not want to be in a conn-pod next to that guy, because he’s essentially said - with words and actions - that I’m cannon fodder.

    Here’s another thing that’s bad about writing Chuck into that scene - it completely oblivates Herc wanting to save his son, all those years ago. Yeah, yeah, they don’t get along without the Drift, but sheez. You can argue that Herc knows that Chuck will do the right thing, is a good Ranger, is old enough to make his own decisions, but if I’d stolen a chopper to save my son and a decade later, he wants to climb into a jaeger with a guy I know is dying and isn’t supposed to climb into a jaeger because it will definitely kill him - I might reconsider my “I shall follow Stacker until the end” decision tree.

    Another way to read it without STACKER PENTECOST CAN SINGLEHANDEDLY OVERRIDE CHUCK’S WILL ANY WARM BODY WILL DO, is you know. 

    That the Jaegers can only move if both partners agree on what is happening on.  In every other big scene in the movie where a Jaeger has to make a decision in the field, the pilots turn to each other and verbally communicate.  When GD makes the decision to go after the fishing boat, Raleigh and Yancy verbalize with each other.  When Striker makes the decision to come off the Miracle Mile during the double event, Herc and Chuck talk about it.  When Raleigh and Mako go into the Breach rather than trying to save Striker, Raleigh verbally checks in with Mako, and they don’t move forward until she nods back at him.

    So yeah.  Jaegers don’t move forward until both parties agree. 

    It’s explicitly in the Raleigh voiceover intro, after all.  The pilots share the neural load of running the Jaeger, one side of the body each.  If you want whole Jaeger to move, you need both co-pilots to be working together.  And that’s why they’re co-pilots, right?  You’re partners.  And you don’t do something your partner doesn’t do. 

    Which is to say, yeah, that’s speculative, but I think it’s no more than the STACKER PENTECOST IS A BIG BAD MAN WHO KEEPS CHUCK FROM DOING WHAT HE WANTS AND TREATS HERC LIKE CANNON FODDER.

     For the record, Stacker. Totally. Does not treat Chuck like cannon fodder. Look at how Stacker convinces Chuck they won’t have problems Drifting together.  First, he tells Chuck that he’s had Chuck pegged since the first day they met, and then he gives Herc a 100000000% accurate assessment of his personality that Chuck accepts and agrees with and then finishes up with not just a reminder that they have history with each other

    I mean, what he’s saying to Chuck is, “You and me, we’ve known each other for a long, long time.  I’m willing to say out loud all those things that you know are true — but you know what?  I know all that shit about you, but I also know how you feel about your dad, all of your anger and fighting and public humiliation of him notwithstanding. And not only how much you love him, but how much your assholery is the result of feeling like you aren’t good enough to be his son.  And me, the man whose approval and opinion your dad values most in the world?  I’m telling you.  You’re a good man.  You’re your father’s son.”  

    In short, Stacker treats Chuck extremely, extremely personally and not like cannon fodder at all.  Could Stacker probably Drift with a lot of people?  Probably, if he’s as disciplined as he claims.  Does he expect that they’ll probably die?  Yeah, but it was always going to be a suicide run.  That bomb is ON STRIKER’S BACK.  WHAT WAS IT GOING TO DO, THROW THE BOMB INTO THE BREACH?  And when Chuck asks Stacker how they’re going to manage Drifting, Stacker treats him as an individual. 

    Yeah, I know there are people out there who think that Chuck’s “fighting spirit was crushed by Stacker” in that moment or whatever, but that’s just patently and 100000% untrue.  Chuck gets his world rocked by a hard dose of truth, then goes out and, together with Stacker, almost manages to take down a Category 5 kaiju singlefuckinghandedly — and it’s not a surprise.  Just look at the way Chuck and Stacker shake hands, eye to eye like equals, and when Chuck is done talking to dad, walk down the hallway to their Jaeger, shoulder to shoulder, side by side, evenly fucking matched in size and strength, ready die in a Jaeger like Rangers.

  6. You know that when Herc comes off the Jaeger and says that amazing line about how Max sees a pretty girl and gets all excited?  

    Herc is looking at Stacker the whole time.

    And pretty clearly, you know, trying to keep from grinning all over the place.
