Nevada and Arizona are about to become beach front. Get in on it now.

To be accurate, more like Colorado and New Mexico.

Over the years, I have watched REAL science programs on the Discovery Channel, etc. about what would ACTUALLY happen.
All I know is I don't want to be anywhere near Calif. if it did....

He's perfectly situated between the Cali Giant Earthquake and the Wyoming Super-Volcano. Looks like bacon is back on the menu, boys.


Earthquakes can have benefits.

I've been waiting 40 years for California to fall into the ocean and my patience is running out. Sh*t or get off the pot.

Say, is it against the law in California to use certain words in discussing clim...glob...the weather like some mentally challenged states?

You're right -- Texas really needs some sort of doomsday scenario to give the rest of us hope.

I got it... with all those cattle producing all that methane and all those oil wells offgassing natural gas and methane, it's only a matter of time before the whole state just goes up in a giant ball of flame!

No, it is not.
On the Left Coast, folks don't get as worked up by "words" as in other places in our fair land.

Latest trailer #3.

The Rock vs an earthquake... put on your money on the Rock. It's like Ditka taking on a hurricane. Mother Nature gots nothing.

This movie has a few things going for it:

Alexandra Daddario running around in a tight tank top
Carla Gugino just being Carla Gugino
Spectacular visuals
A bit o' the cheese. I do likes me some cheese

I was at AT&T Park in San Francisco the day they were filming there. If I was willing to wait like 6 hours I could have been an extra in the movie. I was 50 feet away from The Rock.

Heh. Good luck with that.

If only trailers would be a good indicator of SQ and/or bass. They are not.

This doesn't look bad, I need a new movie to replace 2012. Let's hope they get the audio right this time. Strong LFE when it's needed

Trailers are mixed differently than the film, so they are not a reliable indicator.

Just saw this tonight. My kids baseball game was rained out. So he said, "whatcha wanna do now, dad? See a movie?" I said "sure." One quick check of the Fandango app had San Andreas 3D playing in 30 minutes. Earthquakes can smell what The Rock is cooking and they're scared. I tell ya, Daddario is a sight for sore eyes. She's bounces so nicely.
