2012

Went to see 2012 today and have some observations:

1) Neutrino’s? Really? C’mon this is just not physically possible nor did you really explain “how” the solar burst changed the neutrinos to make them boil the core!

2) Pretty generally the theory that this movies premise is based on has been poo poo’d by the scientific community. Frankly, it makes good fodder for a fiction, but largely lacks in science.

3) Dialog is important.. Please hire better writers.

4) So, the Mayan’s had quantum mechanics and astrophysics all down eh? DANG, they could have at least left a stele with say a message saying something like “HEY WORK OUT HOW NEUTRINO’S WORK CUZ THEY ARE GONNA MELT THE EARTHS CRUST!” but Nooooooo… They leave nothing but this silly cryptic calendar!

Ok, brass tacks, I had fun with the film. Woody Harrelson was great! He reminded me of a cross between Alex Jones and every host for Coast to Coast on the AM/SW today. The SFX were good even if the premises of what they were doing were not too based in reality.

See this film in digital at a matinee showing kids…

Oh.. and one more thing. This film really made one pine for the Doctor to show up and save the day… Good thing I am downloading “The Waters Of Mars” now to sate that desire.

  1. I would rather have an apoplectic muskrat gnaw on my scrotum than sit through this movie. I’ve had it with lame-o disaster fodder.

  2. It was a ton of fun if you could sit back and stop figuring out exactly how high those waves are supposed to be…or how nothing slows them down. You’d think a wave rushing over thousands of miles of land would slow down just from losing kinetic energy due to the resistance of hitting miles of huge mountains…but noooooo.

    Also, tiny little plane can’t act like the enterprise going to warp 9 as they escape Yellowstone.

    And how exactly was the Earth’s core supposed to calm down and stop boiling so that the world returns to normal? If it was so unstoppable in the first place…etc.

    Best part IMO was Yellowstone. It was paced right and you could really appreciate what you were supposed to be seeing. The whole LA sequence was just too fast and too close to see what the ground was doing (by watching behind-the-scenes videos on youtube you learn that the ground was supposed to be acting like water/waves)…wouldn’t this be fun as a turbo ride?
