8.8 Earthquake Rocks Chile: 6.9 Shakes Japan

 

An 8.8 Earthquake has rocked Chile this morning, killing dozens so far and triggering Tsunami warnings for Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica, Hawaii, Australia, Russia and other Pacific Islands.  There is even a warning for the coast of California.

The Earthquake hit about 3:30 in the morning over there.    So far, there has been 2 aftershocks over there, one at 6.2 and another at 5.4.

This came just hours after a 6.9 earthquake shook Japan.  There is no major damage there.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to those effected by these events.-Dr.FB

Trailer For Karate Kid Remake


Mr. Miyagi and Daniel don't appear in this updated version of the 80s classic, but there's plenty of bullies, kung-fu and life lessons. The film stars Jaden Smith, son of Will and Jada Smith, and Jackie Chan.

In this version, "Dre" has to adjust after moving from the US to Beijing where he meets Mr. Han, who steps up to protect little Dre from school bullies. From there, Dre learns the ways of kung-fu from the master.

The infamous "wax on, wax off" mantra from the original has been replaced with "jacket on, jacket off" (not sure I get that one), and Mr. Miyagi's memorable "catch fly with chopsticks" scene has been revised to add a bit of the humor that Jackie Chan is known for (be sure to watch until the end of the trailer).

And wow, how young and small is Jaden Smith? I know it's Hollywood, but he looks way too tiny to be kicking ass.

What do you guys think? Does it look promising or should Hollywood leave the classics alone? -Dr.FB

Here is the new cover of Entertainment Weekly about Johnny Depp's latest movie, the "Alice In Wonderland" remake.

We kinda wish Johnny would have been on the cover sans the Alice make-up.  What do you think?-Dr.FB
