I would love to see one where natural disasters started getting more and more extensive - earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunamis, etc. Something along the lines of The Day After.

But instead of global warming causing these catastrophes, it turns out to be all that gay sex and aborting. In the climax, our hero leads the entire earth in unison to pray away the gay. And it works! Millions of hairdressers, fashion consultants, and interior decorators immediately are repelled from each other, and go out to impregnate the daughters of rednecks, as God intended.

Keep a straight (hah!) enough face at the pitch meeting, and you might even be able to get the fundies to bankroll their own satire.

Who's with me?

The Core sucked, but Ebert's review is a thing of beauty. 

"a scene that cries out from its very vitals to be cut from the movie and made into ukulele picks"

"Knowing' has to be the worst apocalypse of all time, not because the solar flare thing was bad necessarily, but because Nicolas Cage didn't die sooner.

There is a new type of power that comes from space satellites and it is shot by laser to batteries on the ground. But one of the batteries has a hole in it and the power leaked out and made a MAGNETIC TORNADO

This was The Core before The Core. Basically, there's a billionaire industrialist who has developed the ultimate laser for use in mining operations. Because it can cut through anything. The creator of the machine warns that it could cause Earthshaking consequences, because it's too good at lasering, and won't stop until it lasers to the center of the Earth. So he destroys his machine. But years later, someone recreates the ultimate laser, and indeed there are a string of disasters including earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions. So a team of scientists have to go to the center of the Earth and set off some nukes. But a bad guy decides to sabotage their mission for the Chinese military. Guest-starring Star Trek's Terry Farrell and Wil Wheaton!

And yet, a little hydraulic fracturing produces earthquakes in Oklahoma. Maybe Terry Farrell and Wil Wheaton were right!

I believe they've already made that movie. It's called Left Behind.

trivial use of my dark powers: I watched The Day After Tomorrow and for the life of me I don't know why.

Best part of that movie was when I yanked it out of the DVD player and gave it to the cats to play with. It wasn't even fun bad.


This is the only reason to watch that movie, imo.

Perfect Sense

Ewan McGregor and Eva Green celebrate the sensory apocalypse by having lots of sex and eating soap.


I may have to check that one out.


The Core

Here's some fun reading regarding that one:

INSULTINGLY STUPID MOVIE PHYSICS - The Core

It's the worst physics movie...ever....
