If you want "6 unbelievable things before breakfast" then watch 5 minutes of this film each morning for the next month.

Have you ever imagined when would be the end of the world ? And how would it end? Perhaps an earthquake, tsunami? Or all of the natural disasters destroying the world? 2012 is a movie based on the theory from a group of people called the marya (there are different ways of saying it). Though we are living in 2016 now, and we know that it wasn't true because it never happened, it is still a thrilling movie to enjoy. Watch earth get destroyed in less than one day by the attacks of nature... and be affected by the people and the sacrifice.

Pop quiz: Michael Bay or Roland Emmerich? I know, tough choice. Bay makes dumber movies, but Emmerich has made the same disaster movie like 4 times and seems to take himself pretty seriously. He blew up the White House ("Independence Day"), destroyed New York City with a giant lizard ("Godzilla"), and flooded America ("The Day After Tomorrow"), so I guess destroying the world was the next logical step. "2012" dispenses with the climate change message of "Day After" and bases its story on a goofy prophecy that the world will end in 2012. And boy it does! There are so many CGI earthquakes, floods, and explosions, that they just should've make an animated film. A talented cast is entirely wasted. What happened to you John Cusack? He should've held up a boombox to stop the floods. At over 2.5 hours, it's only slightly shorter than the actual year 2012. Also, it was released in 2009 and it kind of rips of a "Simpsons" episode about the end of the world. What gives Roland? Plenty dumb, but not fun. "Armageddon" is better.

Another apocalypse movie, this one triggered by a change in the sun. All the usual suspects manage the effort to save a few individuals as specimens of humanity. Namely politicians and scientists, plus billionaires who sneaked around and bought tickets on the arks. Common folks just didn't make the cut when it came to the survival of the species. Fun, interesting movie worth the watching. Says a lot about what it is to be a human being I suppose.

The special effects didn't look real. Too many yee-hah ridiculous moments. I believe the actors and actresses involved in this movie were embarrassed to be part of it - but sometimes you got to do what you have to do to rake the $$$ in.

Suspend any level of scientific knowledge that you have and just go with this total disaster porn movie. Good times! It is a little long, though.

That 2012 is two years past makes no difference. This WAKE UP CALL to humanity is perennial perfection.
Special effects are BRILLIANT.
