If I have said it once I have said it a million times -- and I have said it a million times so I have actually said it a million million times? -- there's nothing I am more in the tank for than Disaster Movies. I will watch any Disaster Movie, I will love any Disaster Movie, I will stop whatever I am doing and re-watch a Disaster Movie for the tenth time if I come upon it on TV. They are my favorite genre of big-screen trash, I love every sordid story-beat that's been beaten to death -- the family must be reunited! Oh don't forget the dog!
Moonfall, which is about the Moon, you know, falling, has arrived, and I have fuckin' goosebumps over here. This shit, this shit right here is what will get me into a movie theater with a crowd again. I say that knowing it's not out until February, so maybe that will actually feel safe by then. (I am not counting my chickens.) Here's the trailer! Make the dumb parts of your brain tingle and watch it!
I love love a good disaster movie.
Yes, they are cathartic. Wiping out most of the human race feels like a fresh start.
But will Patrick Wilson get out of his flight suit?
The more modern version of When Worlds Collide, which remains one of my favorite movies no matter how dated. And yes to Patrick out of his suit.
