2012 yes effects were very good. BUT well over 20 times, over and over and over they escaped with point second to spare. I know it's expected. OH a couple of times they ran out of time but still made it!! Were we not supposed to notice, obviously. There is poetic licence and poetic licence.

Why do they spend a rude fortune on effects but don't spend 5 minutes to consider a darn good or vaguely plausible story ?? Only their car/plane made it everytime - why didn't someone speak up and say let's portray a few clearing the crevices etc?

Intelligence seriously insulted!!!

Oh well bet others love it after all the critics did???

One review called it 'disaster porn'.
I saw the trailers and thought ..well..that must be it.
Thanks for confirming the suspicion!

I'm bumping this back to the top to ask a question.

I haven't seen the film, but have heard something of the conspiracy theories that surround it.

I don't believe the world will end in 2012, I don't think we'll have any kind of warning if a major disaster occured (like the tsunami on boxing day, out of the blue) but does anyone have any information about the theories surrounding 2012?

Anyone believe in these theories, or any theories that exist proclaiming the end is near?

Thanks,

Charlotte

Life's too short to go through all the theories. However if the evidence is taken into account my theory is that the end of the world will only affect countries using the Gregorian calender. Further if the film 2012 is to be believed the end of the world will only affect the US and other countries that use the silly date format 12-21-2012 (briefly flashed at the end of the film).

Anyone for an end of the world party on 21 December 2012?

lol Kirpi, I do think you have a point here. Isn't it strange how most large scale devastating events are planned to happen in America?

Property prices must be plummeting there.

My secret plan (please don't tell anyone!) is to spread these rumours as far as possible, take out what little is left in the Turkish bank account, and buy the whole of Dalyan for a song. That way people can stock up on the Efes, raki and vodka for the End of the World party and I will be set up for life (well at least until the next End of the World).

Sounds like a plan. What's the expected ticket price?....for those of us non residents?

No charge, no discrimination. Just bring enough Efes, raki, vodka or wine to get through to the end of the world (whenever that is).

Mind you, I don't think my funds will spread to buying Akbuk, Didim and all the other places people have decided to live in so I am prepared to franchise this plan to a few well-chosen entrepeneurs in those places.

My estimate is that by 2012 an Efes will cost the equivalent of a one bedroom apartment, a bottle of vodka the equivalent of a small house and a bottle of raki the equivalent of a villla with all the bells and whistles.

It depends how big a risk you wish to take and Ken, it's not just a film; it is so much more serious than War and Peace. I have met people who seriously believe this theory that the end of the world will happen on December 21 2012 based on all sorts of "evidence" (the end of the Mayan calendar, Nostradamus that sort of thing), that they quote at me ad nauseum. If you haven't you are a lucky man.

I for one confidently predict the biggest log in ever to TLF on the morning of December 22 2012.

I hope all the religious orgs tell people not to pay any funds over to them after said date.

And everyone with one hell of a hangover, and that terrible sense of foolishness (or forgetfullness) that you get on the morning after the night before.
