San Andreas has all the components of an enjoyable action film - dynamic leading man, multiple natural disasters, plenty of destruction - yet it’s not a good movie. It’s rarely engaging, and the first time I watched it, I was so distracted by Alex Daddario’s boobs that I spent more time googling her “breakout” scene in True Detective than I did caring about the film. Upon a second viewing, I found the film more tolerable thanks to the company of my roommate and a box of red wine, but we’ll save the shot rating for the end of the reviewcap™.

I must start this reviewcap (trademark pending!) with a startling confession: this was the first Marvel movie I’d ever seen.

The first time I watched Face/Off, it was about 30 minutes in, when I exclaimed “Wait! They’re seriously going to switch faces? That’s honestly the plot of this movie? How is this possible?” I’m assuming a bit of cocaine was involved, but yes, that is the plot the 1997 Nic Cage, John Travolta epic. It is real, and it is glorious.
