Film Review: ‘The Quake’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘The Quake’
Roar Uthaug’s 2015 “The Wave” revived the pleasures of the 1970s disaster-movie cycle in a form that seemed purer than the never-quite-dead genre’s recent Stateside incarnations — most of which seem to involve Dwayne Johnson in a generic pileup of CGI perils. “The Wave” wasn’t high art, but it was entertainment that delivered some standard satisfactions without treating the viewer like an easy mark.

The Quake,” written by the same duo of John Kare Raake and Harald Rosenlow Eeg, is a “more of the same” sequel that’s just as good as the original, in nearly identical ways. Yes, there’s a tolerably talky buildup to wade through first, but once again it pays off in heightened human involvement when the mass destruction hits the fan. With Uthaug having defected to Hollywood and the “Tomb Raider” remake, this entry is helmed by veteran cinematographer John Andreas Andersen, whose second

Games Within Games – Which Minigames Still Hold Up?

As much as we love modern video games, there can be no denying that as we get older, it can become increasingly difficult to find the time for longer gaming sessions. Because of this, we often find ourselves finding smaller timeslots to drop into a minigame or two. While these can be incredibly fun, they tend not to require hours at a time, although there is a definite tendency of many players to get so absorbed within these systems that we spend hours engaged anyway.

So, what are the biggest and most common examples of this, and what do they bring to the table?

Red Dead Redemption 2

The most recent example, and one that many of us have spent considerable time playing already. As with the previous Rdr back on the PS3 and Xbox 360, RDR2 comes with a variety of minigames, which are not only fun but which help contribute

The True Identity of Jude Law's Captain Marvel Character Revealed Thanks to Funko Pop!

Thanks to a line-up of Captain Marvel Funko Pops!, we have some new information regarding the true identity of Jude Law’s character.

Everyone just assumed that he would be playing Mar-Vell in the film. Even Steven Colbert previously tried to get the information out of the actor saying:

"I thought you were Mar-Vell. You are not Mar-Vell."

To which Law replied:

"I can't tell you who I am, nice try.”

When Law previously talked about his character in a separate interview, he said:

"He is driven by a belief in the divine leadership of the Kree people. So he’s almost a devout warrior — unquestioning, conservative, but inspirational."

Well, if you want to know the secret role that Law is playing, then read ahead. If you want to be surprised until you watch the movie, then:
