Kanye West Praises

Kanye West takes to Twitter to let everyone know his love for "Pacific Rim."

Kanye West's Twitter account currently has less tweets than it does hundreds of millions of followers, so when the Chicago rapper tweets twice in one minute, it's news.

Recently attending a pre-screening of the movie Pacific Rim, Wednesday, West took to Twitter to give his opinion on the film. According to him Pacific Rim is one of his favorite movies ever.

"I saw a pre-screening of Pacific Rim yesterday and it's easily one of my favorite movies of all time," 'Ye said through the social media site.

In his second tweet, just seconds later, West praised the film's director, Guillermo del Toro, and disassociated the movie from other "Robot" movies.

"This is not another "Robot" movie," he tweeted. "Guillermo del Toro is a master."

The $180 million picture has received mixed pre-release press, and it’s difficult to say whether Kanye West’s input will hurt or help the film's success. Combined, West's two tweets currently have over 12,500 retweets and 7,500 favorites.

Numerous people involved with the film responded to West's words. Ron Perlman, appearing in the movie as a dealer in black-market Kaiju organs, responded to Kanye via Twitter.

“Need Kaiju parts, u get the fam discount!” Perlman tweeted to West, referring to the film's “Kaiju” monsters.

In an interview with The Showbiz 411, actor Robert Kazinsky replied, "No big deal, it’s just Kanye," he said. "Questionable decisions in most of his life, but in this case, I think I’ll go with he’s got excellent taste when it comes to films.”

Pacific Rim opens July 12.

    Lame-o movie of the decade: Pacific Rim If you're one of those dorks who get a hard-on from watching robots fight then this movie is for you. All the normal people can pass on this one. Now that Pacific Rim has ended in a Jaeger Bomb (don't ask) I'll spoil-the super-secret plot for Pacific Rim 2: Invasion of Uranus obtained from Guillermo Del Toros official screenp...err...the other side of the cocktail napkin which part 1's storyline is to be found: Giant Kaiju monsters continue their assault on humanity via a new secret home base on Uranus. After failed peace talks and embarrassing defeat after challenging and losing a series of armwrestling matches humanity places it's hope in MGD, the Macarena Gerbil Dance. Giant dancing robots, resembling small rodents and referred to as "Gerbellings", are constructed and trained to perform a choreographed dance in unison forming a force known only as the "Macarena" which, as science has proven, always results in the Kaiju joining the dance until it results in a destructive explosion from within a Kaiju monsters' mid-section. This dance cannot be performed by just any group of pilots - they must be intimately familiar with each other so they can "drift" together and perform dance together correctly. In order to achieve this elite pilots with specific skills are selected and put through weeks of rigorous training consisting of buggery, tea bagging, and watching reruns of Brokeback Mountain until they are "NSync" enough to perform choreographed dancing. The movie concludes with a Gerbelling assault which manages to penetrate Uranus and uses a final MGD to take down the Kaiju home base.

    Would you like to become a HHDX editor? Well here's your chance bitch, all you need is a twitter account, the ability to read, and a keyboard. Pick a rapper, find something he or she posted on social media, and BAM! You are a fucking HHDX editor. P.S....dentaldamboy is a faggot who sticks ballpark franks up his ass

    I wouldn't be surprised if Ye was paid to tweet that (much like his girlfriend's random praise of Bahrain a while ago) and HHDX were paid to write an article about it (or they just had no other news).
