I was thinking I should run out and see the San Andreas earthquake disaster movie this weekend – but after reading the reviews, thought : no.   Maybe later as a Netflix download or something.    The movie is overdramatized, and the damage shown happening to buildings completely overdone.  “You’re going to have pockets of destruction, pockets of collapse and casualties, but it’s not going to be Armageddon,” says Farzad Neaim, a structural and earthquake engineer in Irvine. “The toppling of buildings is very rare.”
