Lexington Nearly Destroyed in Bad SyFy Movie [VIDEO]
I was up really late Saturday night watching TV, and just for the heck of it--and I knew better--I went to the SyFy Channel. I'd checked on my cable guide and the network was airing some 2009 movie called Megafault. With a horrible title like that, I just had to see what this was all about.
I came in during the middle of it. It seems that seismologists have learned that an earthquake large enough to split the world in half is imminent. These seismologists were played by the late Brittany Murphy--probably one of her last movies--and Eriq La Salle who used to be on ER.
When I joined the movie, those two were in a helicopter tracking this massive quake as it spread across the United States. Boy, were the special effects bad.
Anyway, I was just about to find something else when I heard one of them say, "It's heading for Lexington, Kentucky!" Okay, I guess I wasn't going anywhere, after all. At least not for a little while.
So I was watching as this huge fissure just flew across the Commonwealth and ripped Lexington apart. Except there's just one little thing--that wasn't Lexington. Oh, they were calling it Lexington, all right. But I can assure you Lexington it was not.
For one thing, there isn't a large river that runs right down the middle of the city. Secondly, the cinematographer got all kinds of shots of downtown, and there was no Rupp Arena.
This was so awful.
The city they got to play Lexington bears no resemblance. It's like if Willie Nelson played Carrie Underwood in a movie.
Well, after Lexington got rocked, I moved on.
Thank God there's always Law & Order.
