easily had the best score I've heard this year. The acting was great and it was shot magnificently. The fight scenes were more modern dance scenes then your typical martial arts film. If you're expecting a B-movie martial arts action film then you'll be deeply disappointed and bored to death.
I love the tragic and melancholic feel of Kar Wai Wong's movies which is why he's one of my favorite directors of all time.
I actually enjoyed Pacific Rim a great deal. I found the characters were likable and appreciated the balance between character building story and action scenes. Though I love Japanese anime, I'm not to0 overly smitten with the giant robot subcategory so I don't mind how this isn't an ideal parallel/live action version of that subcategory which it owes a great deal.
As for the Lone Ranger, maybe because I was watching it in a very good mood, I simply enjoyed it as good campy fun.
