Heartwarming / The Core

  • Just after Virgil has been dropped into the ocean, gliding down toward the faultline it's going to dive in, it ends up drawing a small pod of whales (due to technology resonating through the water). For a minute they follow Virgil deeper down, singing the entire way, and everyone present just listens to the hauntingly beautiful sounds. It's like they're aware of their mission in a way, and wishing them good luck.
  • One of the good moments between Keyes and Zimsky (paraphrased):
    Keyes: Zimsky... we're in a crystal geode, wrapped in cobalt, 700 miles beneath the crust of the Earth. *chuckles* Hell of a day.
    Zimsky: (slowly chuckling in return) Heh, so it is!
  • At the end of the movie, Rat manages to upload profiles of the entire team that sacrificed so much (and lost four members) to the internet, to spread their names in memory.
