Genius musician Kanye West took a break from sucking his own dick and pretending to help his girlfriend care for their new baby to catch a pre-screening of the upcoming film Pacific Rim, courtesy of Wu-Tang Clan de facto leader RZA. Kanye was actually quite impressed and weighed in, tweeting:
I saw a pre-screening of Pacific Rim yesterday and it’s easily one of my favorite movies of all time.
Didn’t he say the same thing about Beyonce’s music video? Gosh, what an eclectic taste he has. He followed that up with:
This is not another “Robot” movie. Guillermo del Toro is a master.
It’s a rarity in Kanye World, as the rapper did not have any hand in the production of the film, so his fondness of it is purely genuine and not self-promoting in any way.
I just wish it was a review from someone I actually like and respect. I was pretty excited about Pacific Rim, but I feel like anything Kanye likes will probably suck. He just seems like one of those people, you know? Like that friend in your group that just has terrible fucking taste. “Guys, have you seen The Internship yet?! Hands down best comedy since White Chicks.”
Here’s an interesting note, though: the film has a review embargo set in place, meaning that Kanye’s “review” is essentially the only one in existence.
Of course, a review embargo means that there’s a decent chance it will not be well-received by critics so again, be prepared for a few reviews in opposition of Kanye’s.
The movie will contain enormous, city-smashing monsters, hilarious Always Sunny star Charlie Day, explosions, urban destruction, monster-fighting robots in space and oh my god I don’t care how much it will suck I’m seeing it opening night.
The Guillermo del Toro-directed film opens next Friday, July 12. Check out the trailer here.
