One of the cable channels (FX, I think) has been playing “The Core” in medium rotation lately. I’ve been trying to expose myself to it in small amounts, to inoculate myself and accept it as cheesy “so bad it’s good” fun(ref. “The Fast and the Furious”: One of my favorite movies of the past few years.)
A few years ago, during a bout of business travel, I saw “The Day After Tomorrow,” like, 7 times on various airplanes and I really thought that was the worst that could be done, but I just saw the last 10 minutes or so of “The Core” yesterday. OMG. So bad. So very, very bad.
