** ArtisticLicenseBiology: One of the first signs that something is going wrong is when pigeons suddenly go mental and start smashing into everything. This is explained by the changes to the Earth's electromagnetic field messing with their natural navigation systems. While it is true that many birds such as pigeons use electromagnetics to navigate, it is for long-distance travel only. It would be more like if your car's GPS went on the fritz: instead of flying to London, they'd end up in Norway. They still have eyes, they wouldn't just whack into anything in their way!\\

* EarthShatteringPoster: [[http://www.sublimesound.tv/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/core.jpg This]] poster. While the image being portrayed is of the Earth slightly off center with a red line running directly through the center, the message is still pretty clear: The earth will be destroyed from within, and it's not going to be pretty.

** DESTINI actually ''was'' a hastily-added plot point added in reshoots, after test audiences complained that the original story of the Earth's core just stopping for no discernible reason at all was nonsensical.

'''''The Core''''' is a 2003 film about a group of scientists who must travel to the center of the Earth to restart the faltering core of the planet. The government gets a group of four scientists to find a way to make the Earth's core continue to spin, since it's winding down and with it goes the Earth's magnetic field, and without it the entire surface will be melted by cosmic winds. Using literal {{Unobtanium}} to build a ship hull that grows stronger the more pressure is put on it, they set off to deploy a set of five [[DeusExNukina 200 megaton nuclear bombs]] in the core with the idea to restart it spinning.

It goes without saying that the science is atrocious... actually it went with saying, it's [[http://www.intuitor.com/moviephysics/ The Intuitor's]] pick for movie with the worst physics. But enough about that, we must get to what little story there is!

Glib disdain aside, it's a decent popcorn flick with good special effects and a premise that wouldn't be out of place in a Creator/JulesVerne novel. That said, parallels to ''JourneyToTheCenterOfTheEarth'' aren't likely to be favorable for this movie because the characterizations aren't much to write home about. You have intrepid lead scientist, sexy romantic interest female scientist, DeadpanSnarker scientist, and geeky enthusiastic scientist. Aided by a PlayfulHacker with a rat motif.

Now say your [[MST3KMantra mantra]] three times and [[LieBackAndThinkOfEngland lie back thinking of England]].
