There are only two ways to come back from the battlefield: With the head of an enemy or without your own.

I’ve grown to hate the phrase “fun fact” because whenever someone uses it on this website they’re about to be an annoying, patronizing prick.

Okay, but this movie wins the award for Best Use of Manpain, tho.

In any other movie, Raleigh would’ve spent 90 minutes being like MY PAIN IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN YOUR STUPID WAR, and instead, he snaps back into action as soon as he meets Mako. That’s awesome. But what floors me is that he uses his own grief to help Mako survive hers. He knows how awful it is to lose your family. He knows what she’s going through. And instead of whining or thinking his pain makes him entitled to opt out of his responsibilities, he empathizes with Mako, supports her, and encourages her.

Raleigh’s greatest strength is his compassion. And that’s the kind of male hero I’d like to see on my screen, please.

Plus, like, a bazillion more movies about Mako Mori.

I have a friend who thinks Pacific Rim is the best expression of true, non-toxic, GOOD masculinity in recent times.

All agreement.

Let’s talk about Stacker Pentecost in light of this, though. Because we learn, towards the end of the movie, that the day he met Mako is the day he lost his partner. He gets out of that jaeger after having piloted it alone, after having his body burned for hours by toxic radiation, after losing the person he was mentally linked to (family? partner? friend?) and what does he do? He adopts a young girl, and more than that, he promises her her right to revenge if that’s what she wants. Tries his best to keep her safe but gives her the tools and skills and support and eventually permission to fight. Respects her enough to rely on her. Gives her a home and family and meaningful, important vocation during the goddamn apocalypse. Let’s talk about the kind of masculinity that uplifts others that completely. That takes all kinds of pain and stands up in the face of it because of the people who need to see him still standing. That has purpose and drive and passion but above all understands other people and believes in them.

Stacker fucking Pentecost everybody.

^ THIS.

(Also, as per the graphic novel, Stacker’s copilot in Coyote Tango was his bestie, Tamsin Sevier. She survived Tokyo, albeit unconscious, was around to be a foster mom to Mako for a little while, and later died of the same cancer that Stacker has.)

I wish it were socially acceptable to tell people when they’re misusing a word or phrase.

I see people misusing so many of them, especially philosophical terms and Latin words. But, if I were to correct them, I would just be seen as rude . If I were misusing something, I would very much appreciate it if someone were to inform me of the misuse and how the term is properly used. Whatever though.
