2012 movie is stupid as hell.



  • SPOILER ALERT CONTINUED

    I do not beleive they do, other then the whole world shifts and sinks into the waters, all except Africa that somehow rises up 1000 ft from the earth plates shifting?

    It is alot to swallow. All this is caused by the largest sun flare in history resulting in mutated nutrinos which “heat” up the earth’s core and result in “Old Faithful” becoming a super volcano and California falling into the sea, to name a few events.

    Its a borrowed motif from another movie.

    A couple of years ago they had this disaster movie where the Americans were fleeing into Mexico. It is the one where the earth gets really cold. Anyway the symbolism is to poke fun at our attitude about Mexicans because when their poor needs to come across to find jobs, during a disaster they happen to be in a warmer climate and we swarm their borders…to get in…

    For Africa, The world pretty much shuns the problems in Africa, but after the disaster Africa in the position to save humanity… in a way making them more humane and civilized. They also tie in the issue of the “cradle of civilization” theme to add some pseudo science bit, like the earth is basically recycling back to the way it was at some place before humans arrived.

    Needless to say it is crock.

    @Jermofoot:

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

    ! 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. 😛

    Which part of the movie did you find unbelievable? 😄

    Besides some of the earth changes that seemed just too much to happen all at once like that, I think the second husband’s pilot skills for a person that is just learning, are a little too good, especially when he’s dodging falling buildings, etc and then after that he’s flying an Antropov next.

    It had its moments of entertainment but not sure how “realistic” it really is.

    You are correct. It was okay for a disaster movie but I won’t buy it for my collection as it is just not that good.

    Merry Christmas to you.



  • I really wanted to walk out on this stupid ass movie, but I stayed till the end.  Dumbest movie since “Swing Kids”.

    Did you know the Nazis didn’t like dancing?  They also hated Rainbows and kittens as well.

    Ya know, it’s not fair.  The Holocaust gets all the publicity and no one ever remembers the poor swing kids who were not allowed to dance.  It is like the the “flash dance” of the 30s and 40s.
