REVIEW: 'Pacific Rim', 'Lone Ranger,' -- and Brian's favorite 80s movies

Opening Today: PACIFIC RIM (B-) Find out by Brian doesn't think this "bigger, louder and less obnoxiously self indulgent, OCD-laced, acid flashback kind of nightmare that causes director's like Michael Bay to excitedly wake in a cold sweat" doesn't quite work for the big screen in the full review.

Already in theaters: THE LONE RANGER (D+) Silver?! More like 'Hi Ho Bronze'or even pewter. Is this the summer's biggest flop?
