Mock the Movie: Crossover Edition

This Wednesday, we’re doing a Mock the Movie special event. The Curly Hair Mafia are joining us for extra snark and science. Real science. Not the kind you’ll find in the movie. The Curly Hair Mafia are a trio of scientists who show no pity for either bad science or bad assumptions about who a movie’s audience is. We expect them to have plenty to say about this movie.

What? Oh, which movie? The Core. It’s bad. It’s very bad. We’ll all tell you just how bad this Wednesday.

This one is available on Netflix.

“This sounds awful!” I hear you cry. Yes. Yes, it does. “This must be mocked mercilessly”, you say. Well, then you’re in the right company. The instructions for playing along:

  1. Start following @MockTM on Twitter.
  2. Start watching the movie on the appropriate Wednesday at 9 p.m. Eastern time.
  3. Once you’ve got the movie going, tweet your snarky comments to @MockTM. Directing our tweets to @MockTM will keep our followers from being overwhelmed with our snark!
  4. Set up a search for @MockTM on Twitter for the duration so you can follow along with everyone else sharing your pain.

If you have suggestions for other movies that can and should be mocked, send them to @MockTM. Preference will be given to movies that are free or stream on the major media delivery services. Watch the feed, and we’ll set up the calendar for more terrible, mockable movies.

If you’ve missed a mocking, you can catch transcripts and even subtitle files for later watching on the Mock the Movie archive.

    The one semester I taught geology, half of the final exam was to watch The Core and list as many scientific errors as they could find (and why they were wrong). 😀
