    Film 18 of the "Scavenger Hunt #2" Challenge!
    A disaster film involving any mode of transportation!

    I don't really even know what to say that hasn't already been said. This movie was awesome. My mind has been totally blown.

    However, I will say this about my experience with my local movie theater. The wife (RecycledSparks) and I went out and had some dinner and then headed over to the theater (we'd been looking forward to this for…
