10.5 is the worst movie/miniseries I have ever seen. And it was goddamn hysterical. And I have a major fear of earthquakes.
I’ve never seen anything as stupid or implausible in my life. Worst special effects in years, utterly atrocious acting (which is not excused by the complete lack of script).
You know the awful is coming when they knock over the Space Needle before the end of the opening credits, but good Lord, you have no idea how awful.
Here’s how awful: Thermonuclear weapons are used to stabilize something. Because that’s clearly what I do when something needs to be stabilized: Blow it up with the most powerful explosives known to man.
I can’t even begin to go into the other episodes of awfulness, mostly because a good deal of alchohol greatly enhances the viewer’s enjoyment of this miniseries.
The local station here in L.A. have been running quake-proofing ads during the commercials, which are a bit of a buzzkill, but good god, this movie was hilariously bad.
I highly recommend it to anyone in need of a good laugh.
