“The Core”

A single word perfectly describes this movie about a bunch of scientists who journey to the center of the earth to restart its stalled core:


I actually watched this tripe, this utter crap, this unbelievably lame wad of cinematic putrescence, on Saturday. At least I was using my DVD player so I could skip past the laughably inane dialog and completely predictable plot points, so the two-hour movie only required about 20 minutes of my time.


The Earth’s core stops spinning?

They devise a way to restart it using 200 megatons of nukes?

Aaron Eckhart pronounces it “nuke-yuh-lur”? (Though in that he did a fine job of channeling our commander-in-chief.)
