      "Save" in order to save it

      Watch from Thunder Look.

      The little brother saw that the evaluation was excellent. But I look down, just want to give a general.

      For the main line of the screenwriter - let these drillers drill the meteorite of death and save the earth. At first, the director exaggerated the huge damage caused by the small meteorite to the modern city-simple special effects, and arranged a lot of characters to enter the shooting picture to save costs.

      After that, I rushed to the...

      NASA wins

      As a Hollywood blockbuster, the American people have once again saved the world, a must. But no matter how you look at it, it looks like a NASA propaganda film.
      Michael Bay's ability to control hot scenes is very strong, the comet destroying the city is very exciting, and the process of astronauts receiving lunch boxes one after another is also very exciting, +1.
      Bruce Willis' father figure is very high. In the end, in order to fulfill his daughter's confession when he chose to...

      The memory of the doomsday prophecy experienced in 1999 is very deep. Just as "2012" was released before the end of this Mayan prophecy, there were two movies of the same type in 1998. The theme is to try to use the space and nuclear technology that humans originally created for war to kill the idea. To destroy the planet of the earth. The stars chosen in this part are asteroids, and the keyword Armageddon comes from the Bible. However, I feel that the structure of the asteroid is too strange,...

      Courage - Speech by the President of the United States

      President : I address you tonight not as the President of the United States, not as a leader of a country, but as a citizen of humanity. We are faced with the very gravest of challenges. The Bible calls this day 'armageddon' - the end of all things. And yet, for the first time in the history of the planet, a species has the technology to prevent its own extinction. All of you praying with us tonight need to know that everything that can be done to prevent this disaster is being called into...

      "Peerless Heavenly Tribulation": Those who violate my earth will be punished even if they are far away!

      If we can't make big Chinese productions, we shouldn't learn this kind of movies, right?

      This year's Lunar New Year, a large-scale production film "The Wandering Earth", known as "China's first hard science fiction", swept the theaters. While the film rocketed at the box office, it also sparked heated debates beyond the scope of the film's discussion. The people who slammed the film out of control because of Wu Jing's intervention and the bad reviews...

    Movie quotes

    • Truman: [explaining to the Stampers about the asteroid] So, when the rogue comet hit the asteroid belt, it sent shrapnel right for us. For the next 15 days, the Earth's in a shooting gallery. Even if the asteroid itself hits the water, it's still hitting land. It'll flash boil millions of galleons of sea water and slam into the ocean bedrock. Now if it's a Pacific Ocean impact, which we think it will be, it'll create a tidal wave 3 miles high, travel at a thousand miles an hour, covering California, and washing up in Denver. Japan's gone, Australia's wiped out. Half the world's population will be incinerated by the heat blast, and the rest will freeze to death from nuclear winter.

    • Ronald Quincy: [holds out his hand] Imagine a firecracker in the palm of your hand. You set it off, what happens? You burn your hand, right? You close your fist around the same firecracker,

      [clenches his hand into a fist]

      Ronald Quincy: and set it off. Your wife's gonna be opening your ketchup bottles the rest of your life.

    • Rockhound: We're in segment 202, lateral grid 9, site 15H32 - give or take a few yards. Captain America here blew the landing by 26 miles!

      Colonel William Sharp: How the hell do you know that?

      Rockhound: Because I'm a genius.

      Watts: The gauges will not read; they're all peaked like we're plugged into some magnetic field

      Rockhound: [sarcastically] Well, who on the spaceship wants to know why?

      Gruber, Munitions Specialist: By all means.

      Rockhound: The reason we were shooting for grid 8 was because thermographics indicated that grid 9 was compressed iron ferrite. Which means you landed us on a goddamn iron plate!
