There is a separate disc for each movie. Both of these started as a two part mini-series on the major networks in 2004. This helps explain why neither is in wide screen format. Both have very good casts for a TV movie. I saw them both on TV during the original run. And I saw them both on cable... SciFi channel probably. And finally I just watched them again. Since I was able to watch them multple times I give them both 3 stars.

Product Overview

Lock your doors and stand in a doorway as you prepare for action, excitement, and blinding terror in this exclusive DVD double feature! Featuring earthquakes that show no signs of slowing down, 10.5 and Category 6: Day of Destruction are two room-rattling thrillers you don't want to miss!

10.5: Seattle, Washington: dawn. An earthquake trembles with a 7.9 magnitude. It's the biggest natural disaster to hit the West Coast in over a century. The aftershock hits Northern California, reaching 8.4, splitting the earth and swallowing a train as it cruises along the landscape. The chance of an aftershock being greater than the quake is virtually unprecedented. Dr. Samantha Hill (Kim Delaney), an expert on hidden fault lines, and the President of the United States (Beau Bridges) must race against time to save the lives of millions.

Category 6 - Day of Destruction: Nature strikes out with unfathomable fury as the unimaginable becomes a terrifying reality. Three twisters descend upon Las Vegas leaving a neon wasteland in their wake. Hurricanes tear through the Gulf Coast without warning. Record-high temperatures scorch the northeast. One-hundred-mile-an-hour winds tear across the south. Lightning storms ignite the sky. Wildfires blaze out of control. For Amy Harkin, a budding Chicago anchorwoman looking for her big break, the fear of these weather anomalies is second only to the dread of the inevitable repercussions: rolling coast-to-coast blackouts and the dwindling sources needed to revive them. With the worse power breakdown on record looming, an overload could cripple the nation and leave the entire population in the dark, without communication and vulnerable to unthinkable dangers.

ReviewSource Variety
Review [Category] Destroying Los Angeles tipped the Nielsen scales for NBC's tremulous "10.5," so CBS predictably follows with the miniseries after "The Day After Tomorrow," which puts Chicago and Las Vegas through the natural-disaster ringer. Yet, apparently, cataclysmic climatology isn't enough, inspiring the producers to throw in an extra degree of difficulty, as the power grid goes kablooey right before the super-storm hits...Indeed, "Category 6" is so rife with side plots involving recognizable faces in cameo roles and former sitcom stars (Thomas Gibson! Nancy McKeon!) that it's almost as if producers cast it first and concocted a script later..."Category 6" is so replete with cliches it's hard not to admire the earnestness and conviction that director Dick Lowry and his outsized cast bring to it.

Review [10.5] You have to love a movie that topples the Space Needle and the Golden Gate Bridge almost immediately, but it's a truly special occasion when you can watch an earthquake follow a train down the tracks and swallow it up like a shark chasing a swimmer in Jaws. That alone is almost worth the four-hour price of admission to 10.5 because, if nothing else, it gives keen insight into the rest of the movie...There is so much carnage in the writing of the script it's hard to know where to begin. A favorite scene has Delaney and Cubitt poring over maps (maps and computers that zoom in on things and beep a lot are very popular in 10. 5). Delaney says excitedly about some aftershocks: "These are not from our fault. They are from the faults affected by our fault."
