2012 (Roland Emmerich) - ComingSoon.net Film Database
Gee yet another were all going to die movie based off of religious predictions. They predict the end of the world every 10 years. And some don't predict it until the 4000's. No wonder were so paronoid. Asteroids will kill us, earthquakes will kill us, Black Holes will kill us. Terrorists will kill us, disease will kill us, zombies will kill us, killer robots from the future will kill us. The earth is doomed really it is. Just watch CNN, they want more ratings. (Goes back to watching the history channel...wait it's another special about things that might kill us....perhaps the food channel will be more cheery) I miss John Hughes movies.
Wow, just wow....
What you don't remember the one in 2000 where schwarzenegger gets crucified? They said the world would end then too.
More global dumbing.
1. Different Religions (The Mayan Calender has ended in 2012, since always, this isn't a new prediction.)
2. This isn't a bad Ahnold semi-horror film this is a bad disaster film by Roland Emmerich. Completely different genre's.
Emmerich's film good or bad are always fairly epic. Stargate still remains the only one I like.
None of the predictions are new,and there is always something real these movies are loosely based on, but I'm just tried of the media trying to make me worry about forces beyond my control. And usually doing so in a very poor manner.
A FICTIONAL Horror/Disaster movie based on mythology (even the Omen falls into this) is the news to you now??! It's supposed to be entertainment not scaremongering....
I don't watch Saw and think "Oh shit I am going to get locked in a shitstained basement...."
I believe Shitstained Basement was the working title for Saw.
Was that on the Wiki?
Poseidon, Earthquake, The Towering Inferno, Armageddon, Deep Impact, End of Days...
we should all be doomed and gloomed out.
Sorry guys I'm just having a "fun" day. (fun= sarcasm)
I lost interest once I saw Roland Emmerich was attached.
The funny thing is, the year 2012 is the first prediction of the end of the world that has some merit.
Unfortunetly the End of the World prediction for 2012 reminds me too much of the story about the boy who cried wolf. For years people have been crying that the world was going to end and it didn't, just like the boy who said there was a wolf and there wasn't. But when the boy did actually see the wolf and called for help no one believed him and well you know how the story ends.
Jesus chalk me up in the 'I could give a shit' crowd. Every movie its fate of the world or the end of mankind or some shit. What I wouldn't give for a film where the protagonist has a simpler objective. That's why I liked Taken so much I guess. Nothing new on the film ideas list, but a refreshingly bloody and personal vendetta film.
Except this is the sort of movie where you DON'T save the world and the "hero" if there is one will be helpless. Hence, DISASTER movie.
As a human race we are so fucking obsessed with our own death and destruction that we forget to live.
