2012
« on: July 12, 2009, 07:37:19 am »
From the guys that brought us ID4 and The Day After Tomorrow we get 2012. Another disaster-end-of-the-world CGI fest.

I'll be watching it of course, I love this kind of silly choas.

On a continuity note.. the USS John F Kennedy was decomissioned two years ago (cough).

They are flying a jet between collapsing skyscrapers and you worry about the make of the aircraft carrier.  :P

I would expect nothing less from Lego.

That being said, there is so much insanity in that trailer, I don't know where to begin.
Probably not a Goat, either.

It looked quite cool!

Though it seems a bite overdone, so much disasters like a meteor rain, a huge wave and sick earthquakes...
Still I think I will like the movie ;D (I liked independence day and day after tomorrow too!)

I don't know, this movie is from the same people that made the 90's Godzilla...

I'm not trusting the movie until I here the reviews.

All the movies these people have made have sucked, so I don't think this will be any different. And the teaser explicitly states that the Mayans were man's first civilization, who warned us of the end of the world.
1. The Sumerians, Persians, Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, etc. might have something to say about the Mayans' longevity.
2. The Maya calendar does not attach any apocalyptic significance to the year 2012 whatsoever, and their actual predicted date for the end of the world is eons upon eons in the future.
This movie is going to be a horrible film that is over-reliant on special effects with cliched characters, a flimsy plot and bad dialogue. I won't see it, and nobody should. Except critics.

I'd watch it purely for the CGI destruction fest that it will no doubt become.

That was brilliant.  And based off the music, I think Quentin Tarantino needs to make a disaster movie.

Sure, why not?

So here's my theory on the Mayan calender. Right, so they calculated and recorded calenders for like, 3000 years. At some point someone must have been like, you know... I think we have enough of these for now, let's work on something else. Because they could get back to work on more calenders in... 2000 years or so and be cool. Unfortunately, they didn't pass the memo on and so people began to think that maybe the calenders stopped for a reason.

The world will not end in 2012, the Mayans were just being human and got lazy. I'd have done the same thing. I think this movie will be fun to watch if only because it fills that special hole in my heart that wants to see the White House get clobbered in as many exotic ways as possible. :D

...

I watched that second trailer first, and actually for a moment thought this might be a good film.

Then I saw the real trailer :/
Not a winner anymore.

It will have spaceships! That will be cool, right?

PS- saying the world will end in 2012 is as silly as saying the world will end at midnight on New Year's Eve. That doesn't mean we can't enjoy the movie.
Yeah, [Kishmond] came back from Africa, but the ponies have him now.

I'd would be great if the movie was fashioned like that fake trailer. Should be a laugh to watch.

I'll just play some 70's pop themes in my head as I see the movie.

Download the movie when it comes out on Bluray, and then play every song from the 70's in your music library when you watch it, you mean!
