            Pigeons gone loco, people mysteriously dropping down dead, storms like you've never seen tearing up the heavens. The reason: the earth's core has stopped spinning.       If that sounds like a silly premise to you, that's because "The Core" definitely is, without a doubt, a silly movie.          This sci-fi disaster film centers around a motley crew of stereotypes, …

Pros: mildly entertaining     Cons: too unbelievable     The Bottom Line: _____________           The unexpected is just about the only thing that really frightens me, beyond spiders that is.

This film begins with an interesting premise, although seeing a bunch of birds crashing through windows seems to be a poor way to start a film built around geophysics phenomena.

The biggest drawback in the film is the actual journey to the core. Since there isn't too much to see there except a bubble with a bed of giant quartz crystals, the story …

Pros: Some ok FX     Cons: Bad story, acting, no character development.     The Bottom Line: A good premise and setup is quickly lost in a complete lack of originality.     Hollywood has had long had a fascination with disaster films, and the genre had its heyday in the 1970’s with producer Irwin Allen’s star-studded disaster epics. Films such as “The Towering Inferno”, “Earthquake”, “The Poseidon Adventure” …
