Right in the middle of an action-packed scene in an abundantly graphic and fast movie you focus in on just one item on the big screen: a watch. From that close-up moment on, the movie has a new meaning and you find a new drive to go through every scene and every detail: more images of the watch in question.
Ok. It might be just me? Or not? Anyway – with Summer come a handful of jampacked action movies and although I do not favor the type, Natural Disasters (or Alien Invasions) are among those year after year!

Ray Ban Custom Aviator Sunglasses as worn by Dwayne the Rock Johnson and you have a very atypical Search and Rescue officer – in various scenes from San Andreas, The Rock changes at least 2 pairs of custom-made Aviator sunglasses! Amping up the classic pilot look with un-graved Aviator Ray Bans? I’m certain Wendy Chuck, San Andreas’ Costume Designer didn’t have much input on the shades and the watch…
I would definitely add more notes to this story, but that would inevitably turn it into a spoiler and I’m that old-fashioned kind of movie-goer, the one that strongly dislikes and stubbornly avoids all trailers, pre-reviews and teasers!
