San Andreas - The Movie
I just got home from seeing an awesome movie with my sweetheart and our daughter. We have been seeing scenes on television, a movie trailer online for quite awhile before this weekend and it looked really cool. So this weekend is opening weekend and we had plans to go on Friday, but something came up. I ended up dropping my wife and daughter off at the theater on Friday night so they at least could see it.
They absolutely loved it and could not stop talking about it as we drove home. So, today, I talked them into going back and seeing it again with me. I am so glad that I did get a chance to see it and not have to wait to see it on Blu-ray. I am not going to give an spoilers about the movie. All I will say is that if you like disaster movies as much as we do, you will absolutely love San Andreas.
It was 100% pure entertainment, I would highly recommend it to absolutely everyone to see it for yourself.

So long as you ignore 'some' of the (ahem) 'Science' used, I enjoy disaster movies like this. I don't know if it's so much the idea of the 'destruction' of some of the cities involved as it is the way they wind the scenarios together. The idea is that when you have to actively suspend your disbelief to 'buy into' the plot, you often enjoy the movie more than when you sit there and say... "Well, it doesn't work like that."

It seems that they had hit the boxoffice with high ratings

Oh yeah, it was definitely filled with tons of "it doesn't work that way" moments.

It was more of hit with movie goers than the movie critics, but in the grand scheme of things, that is truly what matters with this type of movie.

I will eventually see this one. You weren't alone as the film was a massive hit $53 million domestically and another $60 million overseas. One headline said Dwayne Johnson "rocks" the box office.

We have been getting the trailers on the TV here and it sure looks like the FXs are top notch. Glad to hear that you enjoyed the movie ! Putting it on my 'to see' list :)

I always wait for the video, but thanks for the thumbs up about it

I understand what you mean and if it was not my kind of movie I would have waited until it came on NetFlix or released on Blu-ray.

That is for sure, he definitely "Rocked" the box office.

Most definitely, the special effects were off the chart, it really made the movie much cooler.

Soonerdad3 I heard some scientific de-bunking comments on the news this morning. But they also added that it's great entertainment!

I would probably like this, then, as I can get into a food disaster movie, provided, as Morilla noted, I can suspend my disbelief sufficiently. My faves in this category are Twister and The Day After Tomorrow.

We heard the same after my wife and daughter saw it on Friday, but I am more into the entertainment value in a movie, so I was undeterred.

This one is better than both of them and I really liked each them.

I haven't seen the movie. It looks like you got me looking for the trailer. Thanks for sharing

I hope you find the trailer and get a chance to see it, if not at the theater, look for the DVD when it comes out in a few months.

It was a local movie that I last watched with my daughter. Never heard of this movie
