    ...I'm sure there's already a thread, but this deserves a new one.

    I just watched it last night. I think they died about 40 times in that movie. :/ Woooow. :congrat: Thank you, Hollywood, for making children think they can drive a car through a falling building without perishing.

    Thoughts on the movie?

    Admittedly, the volcano was AWESOME. And there WERE parts I liked. But they died. SO MANY TIMES. The graphics were amazing, though, and I was a bit sad that I hadn't seen it in theaters, since I'm sure it was crazy on the big screen.

    2012 Movie

    Movie was great for entertainment purposes only. I enjoyed the movie but it is just fiction, I rate it right up there with the movie "Armageddon" In real life that would not happen. But the movie does present, at least in the beginning, a need to wonder about the impact of global warming, sun bursts and the Maya calender that were all presented in the beginning of the movie. It may not be enough for us but maybe it will raise some awareness in those who have until now not worried about the future and start to prepare. Just a thought

    I liked the movie but it was waaay far fetched. Good for wasting an hour or two and the volcano eruption was AWESOME!

    I watched it at the theater when it first came out. Awesome special effects!!

    As far as the Mayan Calendar, everyone is wrong. Once you get to the end of the calendar, you simply roll the calendar to the side and start using the one behind it! :D

    OOH good movie





    :::MIGHT FALL UNDER THE CATEGORY OF SPOILERS:::
    though I thought the underlying idea that the only way they stayed safe was by continuously moving down the road, yet this same road was the main route for most of the slavers/cannibals/slavibals and they were only spotted once

    also, the movie left out the people eating the baby which added like 10 more levels of horror to the book

    Haven't seen the road yet but I loved the book. Once I got used to the weird punctuation McCarthy used I couldn't put it down. I'm not even gonna talk about it much so as not to ruin it for anyone but the thing with the baby and the thing with the people locked in the basement was really unsettling. I did think that McCarthy absolutely nailed the mentality of a young boy thrust into that situation. Excellent book all the way through.
