2012 movie is stupid as hell.



  • The director of these garbage movies always seems to be able to steal money from me.  I see the concept, looks good, watch it when it comes out and with in the first 10 minutes of the movie I know “the moron has struck again”.  This guy has done (among other stupid movies) Independence Day and Stargate.

    I won’t go into depth on how idiotic this movie is other than to say this.  When “Joe Virtue Good guy” is arguing with “Joe Bad Guy” about whether they should leave some people behind for the greater good he says something like “what will you tell your grandchildren?”  How about what Holocaust survivors told their children… I SURVIVED!

    Ya, idiotic ideological nonsense is really what you need when the world is coming to an end.  When of course everyone follows “good guys” advice it made me hope beyond hope that the movie would end with the human race being wiped out, because that is a better ending than the earth being populated by morons.

    Well the effects were nice anyway.

    I do hate that skin of your teeth thing where way too many times it’s like that formula of disaster blockbuster ala Erwin Allen.

    The acting was horrible. Gary Coleman could have done a better job.

    The science was ridiculous as well, but then Taco Bell could not have any tie in for it’s new Burrito right?

    I think the fast food chains pay that idiot director money on the side so they can spoon feed the diabetes crowd in poor neighborhoods, where many of these restaurants are located. I think it is marketing at it’s worst.



  • Sounds like it is as bad as Starship Troopers was which I referred to as Melrose Space.



  • @Zooey72:

    I see the concept, looks good

    Well, there’s your problem right there…


  • 2007 AAR League

    i watched the terrible movie.

    i saw the world destroyed by horrible acting and an awful plot line.



  • So the general consensus is a crap movie. Thank you… you saved me some money

    they’ll keep fighting! and they’ll win!

    have you seen starship troopers 2 and 3?  thats some quality movie watching right there…. 😄


  • 2019 Moderator

    I enjoyed starship troopers, but I would still like to see a movie that was more like the book, awesome book, OK movie…



  • The book is always better than the movie.

    that pretty funny, I had almost exatly the same reaction.

    It was quite hilarious when Russia and China were the first to agree to let more people board.

    I also heard that the took out a scene where  Mecca was destoryed, in order apease the Islamists, who by the way we are at war with!

    What a bunch of bull!@#$

    I also found it hilarious how after only the G8 countries +China where informed of the world ending, eveyone thinks its ok to crash in Africa(which they effectvly were planning on leaving for dead), which ironicly was not flooded at all.

    In anycase I would hope if the world ever did come to an end most people would spend their last moments doing something other than groveling to their imaginary friends. These types of movies are simply a racket.

    Hahaha, hilarious!

    And I mean you, not the movie.



  • @Brain:

    99.9% true… the only one I have found where the movie is better than the book is I Am Legend. The book just didn’t have that ‘all alone’ feeling being that the mutated people could speak and act “more human”>

    lol, spoiler alert…. :lol:

    Thats hilarious. I never looked at it that way, but it is like a soap opera a little.

    I actually didn’t mind Starship, only because it had some interesting ideas and it does not hurt that Denise Richards is in it either. I won’t say it’s awesome or anything but I have seen worse.

    One example of a great book bad movie is The Relic. Awesome book I would recommend to anyone. The movie changed the booked too much and it actually made it kinda stupid and basically it sucked.

    Lord of the Rings - awesome book; the movie did alter it but I think kept with the majority of the story and actually turned out quite well. One of the better book to movie stories.

    i watched the terrible movie.

    I was thinking of going to see this one as it does look spectacular on the previews, but with everyone here saying its bad, I think I might wait until it comes out on DVD.



  • I just watched 2012, and it’s not only stupid as hell, is completely rubbish. I’m glad i didn’t pay any money for this ““movie””, downloaded free via bittorent.
    Now, if there were laws against movie scams, people who paid for this shit should get their money back!

    Starship Troopers is a brilliant satire of American fascism, and deeply prophetic in regard to the Iraq war.

    The 2nd is a cheap straight to video horror movie; the 3rd is an OK sequal, lacking the hard edge of Verhoeven’s wit.

    2012 is I’m afraid typical of the last 10 years of Hollywood; souless CGI heavy movies-by-numbers for mush-heads.  You know exactly who survives and who doesn’t 5 seconds after meeting them.

  • I now have seen 2012…

    There are too many “that was totally impossible” scenes were it is just not realistic that I would not know were to begin to describe.

    Of the “End of the World” type movies this one will go down as the cool graphics but weak story king. Others like Deep Impact were a lot better and more entertaining to watch.

    For that matter Noah’s Arc is actually a way better story, one that was “borrowed” for this film.

    Wait to rent, do not buy or pay in my opinion. (Glad I didn’t)



  • So does the world actually end or does John Cusack save the day?


  • 2017 2016 2015 Organizer '14 Customizer '13 '12 '11 '10

    Typical result. He saved the world but looks like he dies trying, but he does not. Typical. Oh and the dog gets saved too…just like ID4.

    The facial expressions of the main characters as they fly out of danger are so weak, you wonder if they would be better at doing a new Hanna Montana movie.

    Just once they need to make a movie where they don’t focus on whether a dog lives or dies only to be saved, while millions of other people are lost.

    They did that once, but that movie had no special effects till the last 5 minutes ( forgot the title but it is the one with the big tidal wave at the end).

    Surprised Taco Bell didn’t do any product tie ins: “The 2012 Mega Burrito Mega Meal, with upgraded 82 OZ coca cola supertanker diabetes refreshment”



  • I love all these end of the world stories we get all the time. I can remember quite a few, one was we were all going to die when Halley’s comet returned according to the Jehova Witnesses. And then we got to hear all that Nastrodamus stuff telling us the world would end around 2000. Now its the 2012 crap, and when 2012 passes we will be hearing some new end of the world story. I think I’ll come up with my own B.S. story so I can write a book and capitalize on all the hysteria. Hell I got a cpu;e of years to get it ready so I better gat started so I can have it ready by 2013. Anybody interested in this project……I need some creative minds so this project will be 4:20 friendly.



  • @Jermofoot:

    ! He actually does not “save” the world, no one does, but he does “save” the people on the ship he is on from crashing into Mount Everest and they make thier way to the only remaining land mass left that rose up 1000 feet - Africa. It is a bit much to be believable. 😛

    Well first things first…I want a disaster movie that is actually a disaster.  Like everyone dies.

    I got it!  It’s the future.  Everything is a utopia.  And then the sun goes supernova.  People find religion again and hope god is on his way.  Alien contact is made and they promise to whisk the humans away to safety.  But what they don’t know is that these are actually Probulons coming to do tests on mankind.  So they pick up all the people, probe them, then eat them alive.  Then they laugh with their bellys full as they arrive on their planet that is made of chocolate and beer.  The end.

    Book it - blockbuster. And I’m not even high.

    Yeah…that’s just awful.  Do they even say why Africa rose?
