If only it were the summer of 1998 when movies like “Armageddon” and “Deep Impact” were box office hits. Oh Geostorm ye hath missed the mark and time period by about 19 years. Spoilers ahead:

If you want to see this, which I obviously did be prepared to be a bit disappointed as there is no actual Geostorm, just a threat of one. The movie’s plot is stopping a possible Geostorm. Man, I could write a novel about all the technology and programming, however I will summarize Geostrom below.
