THE WEBER MOVIE COUNTDOWN

THE GOAL FOR 2018: 200 MOVIES WATCHED BY MIDNIGHT NEW YEAR'S EVE!  (AFTER TOPPING OUT AT 194 in 2017)

CAN HE DO IT?

​​THE WEBER MOVIE COUNTDOWN

THE CHENOBYL DIARIES (2011)


#8 follows in the tradition of awful movies about young Americans abroad running into sudden, nasty danger (see Aftershock or The Darkest Hour for examples or, better yet, don't!). 2012's Chernobyl Diaries takes an interesting premise (American kids plus a couple of Aussies take a clandestine tour of Pripyat, the city that was abruptly abandoned when the reactor went to hell) and does absolutely nothing with it when their guide goes missing and their van won't start. Except steal from other better movies, that is. Avoid this.
