California's entire earthquake fault line goes haywire, with 9-point-plus shocks on the Jerry Lee Lewis Rigor Mortis scale! The geological wipeouts include Boulder Dam, downtown Los Angeles and most of the San Francisco peninsula. This expensive-looking Dwayne Johnson disaster spectacle looks sensationally good, with excellent 3-D effects and nearly wall-to-wall fun effects work, even if your Cal-tech experts will turn green at some of the overstated Temblor Tech Talk. San Andreas 3-D Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD Warner Home Video 2015 / Color / 2:40 widescreen / 114 min. / Street Date October 13, 2015 / 44.95 Starring Dwayne Johnson, Carla Gugino, Alexandra Daddario, Ioan Gruffudd, Archie Panjabi, Paul Giamatti, Hugo Johnstone-Burt, Art Parkinson, Will Yun Lee, Kylie Minogue.

We haven’t had a good old fashioned disaster movie in ages. The timing for San Andreas is interesting in that most Californians have stopped worrying about the big earthquake, focusing instead on the drought and/or the wildfires. But the seismologists have never stopped fretting that a quake, more devastating than the 1906 San Francisco event, is imminent. After several decades of “imminent” waiting, I can see how attention has wandered.
The Dwayne Johnson-led action film is a brutal reminder of just how much devastation is likely to result from such an earthquake. With CGI effects to enhance the imagery, this is a visual feast of destruction. And like every good epic in this genre, we follow the impossible efforts of one man not only to survive but to rescue his family despite the odds. As a result, the horrific reality is undercut by the muscular heroics. We know »

★★☆☆☆ The disaster movie is the hallmark mainstay of the summer blockbuster. From its high point in the late 1990s with hits such as Independence Day (1996) and Armageddon (1998), nothing has traditionally drawn crowds more than the sight of familiar vistas being reduced to rubble. World events and the rise of superhero movies have meant they are less common these days, but one new entry in the genre is San Andreas (2015). Popular action star Dwayne Johnson takes the lead as Ray, a helicopter rescue pilot desperately trying to save his daughter (Alexandra Daddario), caught on the streets of San Francisco as it is ravaged by the worst earthquake in history.

If there was ever a genre of movie that benefited from advances in computer generated effects, it has to be the disaster movie. What better way to destroy cities than to take the real locations then virtually tear them apart?
In San Andreas, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson stars as Ray Gaines, a helicopter rescue pilot for the Los Angeles Fire Department. When a huge earthquake rips its way up the San Andreas fault and his daughter Blake (Alexandra Daddario) finds herself trapped in San Francisco, Ray and his estranged wife Emma (Carla Gugino) must save her before an even bigger impending earthquake rips the city apart.
While most of the marketing for San Andreas quite rightly puts the »

The trailer reveals that the titular “Choice” is faced by Theresa Palmer’s (“Warm Bodies”) character deciding between two men. Aside from the love triangle, the trailer is filled with parallels to Sparks’ past romantic dramas — eight of which have been made into films, including “The Notebook,” “Dear John” and “A Walk to Remember.” Much like “The Notebook,” “The Choice” will feature passionate kissing, southern accents, boats, beaches, a ferris wheel, a car crash and a man waiting for his woman to “come back” to him.
The trailer ends with more wise words from the narrator. »

We saw the first trailer just last week and today the MPAA delivers the rating for Angelina Jolie's new movie in which she not only directs, but stars in opposite her husband, Brad Pitt, and it seems By the Sea won't only be touting the names of the two high profile celebs, but a strong R-rating along with it for "strong sexuality, nudity, and language." That'll heat up the cinema, though this looks like a bit of a tough drama than some sort of Fifty Shades sex romp. Speaking of... next up is yet another new Nicholas Sparks adaptation, this one is called The Choice starring Alexandra Daddario, Teresa Palmer, Maggie Grace, Tom Welling, Benjamin Walker and even Tom Wilkinson. PG-13 rating for this one... naturally. Oh, yeah, and guess where it takes place... If you said a "small coastal town", pat yourself on the back. A couple animated »
