San Andreas ……Movie Review.
Yesterday, the Captain and I celebrated our anniversary by spending the day doing whatever suited our fancy at that minute.
Nothing was planned ahead other than booking a room at the Westin Resort here in our little city.
Some might say why would you do that when you live about 1/2 mile away?
I am not sure of the answer to that question other than we decided we were not going to travel away from home to celebrate, as we have done in the past.
This was the time to “stay home”…so to speak. No business, No flying, No Blog writing….just the two of us doing…..whatever!
These days…most scenes are CGI…computer generated images.
Some are done better than others and this movie is pretty real…. even though there were a few aviation scenes that the Captain and I looked at each other and smiled….knowing it was a bit campy and could not have happened in that way.
Things have come a long way from King Kong and Godzilla movies of yesteryear.
So having said that, this movie was entertaining as CGI movies go.
Dwayne Johnson (The Rock) was very convincing as a Los Angeles, rescue helicopter pilot (who has to up and leave anytime someone needs rescued) ……and the all too familiar plot line of ex-wife wanting him to sign divorce papers so she can marry the rich guy and live happily ever after in her new stable life.
The fact that an earthquake of that magnitude could happen makes it seem all the more real. …and those moments are tense.
However, a professor of earthquake engineering, Tiziana Rossetto, comments: “Dwayne Johnson’s disaster drama might have other films quaking in their boots at the box office, but there are seismic cracks in its geological accuracy.”
All we have to worry about are hurricanes!!! 🙂
Have a great day…..and may the ground beneath your feet stay still and not move! 😉
