2012 (2009) Review

Went for the 2012 movie yesterday and all I have to say is that it's totally awesome, dude! Despite the show being about 3 hours long, it was so worth the watch and to me, this is the best show of the year so far!

Basically, this show is about the catastrophic end of the world. The sun emitting rays sending loads of Neutrinos to earth but this time these rays physically affects the earth's condition. It alters the earth's core temperature causing it to produce a microwave effect and adversely increases it rapidly. Dr. Adrian Helmsley (played by Chiwetel Ejiofor) reported it to the Chief of Staff which in turn the President of the United States following with the rest of the head of states and governments from around the world.

While keeping a lid of the impending doom, they conspired an evacuation plan to preserve the lives of people around the world. They used China to build arks to prepare for the strike of the catastrophe while selling seats 1 billion Euros per seat to billionaires all over the world.

While the movie shows the catastrophe striking around the world, the story evolves around a man named Jackson Curtis (played by John Cusack) who's a limo driver and a writer. Jackson along with the family, the ex-wife, daughter, son also with the ex-wife's boyfriend goes on an incredible journey of struggling to stay alive as they seek out to travel to China where the arks are without getting killed.

The movie with all it's glorious special effects is a really awesome watch although the dramatized story of Jackson and family trying to stay alive were really hard to believe. But hey, it's the movies. That's where such fake stories can come true! I give it 5 stars out of 5! It's the best movie of the year to me.

The tickets I have were courtesy of Exabytes Malaysia. They also gave out free complimentary small combo which consists of one small popcorn and soft drink.
Exabytes also gave out a free goody bag which consists of a notepad:

They also gave out a mystery gift. The gift?

It's the same piggy bank (or shall I say cow bank, hahaha) from where I got it when I went to the Nuffnang Asia Pacific Blog Awards in Singapore!!!
Thanks Exabytes for the great movie outing. :)

Do we really believe in some sort of "change" is going to take place in 2012 based on an ancient culture? In my opinion religion was formed to explain things that were unexplainable to ancient people. Why'd it rain? The rain god made it so. Why is the person acting crazy? He has a demon.

What is my ponit?

That if there is some "shift" in thinking it will go unnoticed by the masses. Most of us won't realize it's happening until we can look back and see the paradigm shift in retrospect. I believe nothing magical or alien will happen on that day. The same way nothing happened in the year 2000 when all computers were going to fail and the second coming of Christ was supposed to happen. Movie looks interesting though.
