The Core was awful but it didn't stop me from copying...er making a backup of it. I am sure I'll do the same with Paycheck eventually. I mean come on...I have a movie called Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter in my collection. It doesn't get much worse.
There's too much scientific interest in me to have stomached The Core. Next to Armeggedon, The Core has some of the worst physics in movie making history. Explosions in space in bad Sci-Fi movies was less horrendous than the treatment of science in The Core.
The very basis for the film is simply retarded. The effects of a loss of magnetophere was pure hollywood garbage. And re-starting the earth core's rotation with nukes is beyond stupid. Strait to asinine, do not pass go and collect a science major.
I know movies are supposed to entertain. And that suspension of belief is required. But when the very premise of a movie is so utterly silly, it just becomes impossible to enjoy a film.
The Core will be right up there with farenheit 9/11 in terms of realism and factual basis. Actually, I think the Core still beats Moore's blathering because it's simply less annoying. But no less fictional.
Hey now! Suspension of disbelief is just about the only excersize I get these days! Do you have any idea how tiring it is to hold the disbelief up that high for that long through a movie like The Core?
