My Wife And I Discuss Pacific Rim

(NOTE: Based on time elapsed since the posting of this entry, the BS-o-meter calculates this is 13.266% likely to be something that Ferrett now regrets.)

ME: “…And then Angie left this comment: ‘Yeah, the movie started and I was all “why don’t they just….how come they don’t…” and Ferrett said, “you are going to have to stop thinking if you’re going to enjoy this movie”. And I did. And i did.'”
GINI: “I don’t know why Angie thought Pacific Rim had issues. I mean, creating a giant wall that’s actually shorter than the monsters they’re trying to keep out?  At what kind of cost and expense?  How could that ever go wrong?”
ME: “Well, Guillermo del Toro is a Mexican director.  One suspects subtext.”
GINI (ponders): “Wow. I hadn’t considered that.”
ME: “Of course, it then follows that Del Toro thinks the best solution to American’s immigration problem is to suit up in giant SWAT team outfits and punch Mexicans in the face.”
GINI: “No, that’s a stopgap solution. Del Toro thinks the best solution is to nuke the border.”
ME (ponders): “…I love you.”
GINI: “I know.”
