The Core “dumb fun”

by on Mar.28, 2003, under Movies

I read a review of The Core in a newspaper this morning, which actually was fairly positive. I also came across this review on CNN.com that maybe is overall negative, but they used the same phrase – “Dumb Fun”. So maybe this at least rates a DVD rental for me. If you go to see it, drop a review here…

    Not bad

    Not bad, save for the liberties with the laws of physics/geophysics, and computers.

    better then I expected actually

    Better then I expected, but suspend your disbelief, otherwise you could end up going MST3K on the movie with their liberal use of ‘science’

    geek trends

    From the previews, it looks awfull. But I’ve noticed and interresting change in the previews: They used to have a geek say that to “hack the planet” (barf) he’ll need hot pockets and Star Trek tapes. Now it says he needs hot pockets and spongebob tapes.

    This, to me, says that the movie is SO bad that they need to keep their finger on the pulse of the trendy geeks in order to attract the hip yungins. Kinda pathetic really…
