2012- Amazing!

Recommended Posts

Guest chelsy123

I saw 2012 last night with a couple of friends. I'm personally not a believer in the 2012 idea, so I thought this movie was going to be horrible. It looked good on the commercials, but I didn't think it was going to be more than an action movie (action is great..drama/storyline/messages are the greatest, once again in my opinion :P).

Now..when I saw it, I cried almost 4 times! 1 time i was shaking my head trying to not cry. It was soo amazing. It had it's happy parts, sad parts, parts that made you furious, and parts that made you laugh soo hard. Infact, i give it 4.8/5 stars. The only thing i did not like were the "coincidence" last minute escapes. There were too many of them, although a couple were misleading :P. This movie teaches you about human compassion, and what it is like to truly care for other people. It was amazing, the 2012 idea was just the backdrop/trigger that caused all that emotion to happen. Man..it was definately one of the sadest movies I have ever seen..some of those tearful goodbyes between family members almost had me =(.

Like I always say, if a movie can make you cry , it has to be good!

Hi Chelsy,

Although I do not buy into the 12,21,2012 doomsday prophesy, I find it interesting the compelling urgency of people to be real with one another. I look forward to the day when we can truely be ourselves, without fear.... hopefully.... 12,22,2012

Sounds like an awesome movie!!! I should go and see it :)

Love

Brenda

I want to go see that movie. If I can, I'm gonna see if I can drag my Dad to see it. He probably would go too, he has told me quite a few of the 2012 beliefs....

:P I hope he will enjoy it if he goes Crow. Whether your a believer in the prophecy or not, it was an amazing movie. It is for sure one of my top 5 fav movies! Passchundale, The Dark Knight, Gran Torino, 2012 are all amazing movies..so was rise of the lycans (so sad!)

Ohh rosey, infact at first I thought that the only good thing about the movie would be the special effects. Well, not only were the effects better than what i assumed them to be, but the movie had a great story/message to go with it! :). But yeah..that was 4 sure one expensive movie to produce =s

Thanks for speaking about it. I've been curious about this movie, and I want to see it, but just never quite committed. I'll make sure to check it out. I mean it digitally looked stunning, but wasn't quite so sure what the storyline could offer if there was going to be a lot of death and destruction.

Oh CJwar, you will love it :). I felt the same way before and after omg :) my mind completely changed! Like I said, there were a few too many cheesy-last-minute-indiana jones-like-escapes (once again, one of my words :P), but besides that it was perfect.

12-21-2012 is the end of a Myan cycle. Yes bad things did tend to happen on the ends of cycles; as to why the calendar never continued, maybe the Myans were wiped out before they could continue it. Recent archeological work has show that the Myans lost influence partly through their own fault, it was ecological colapse that started the decline. Their own religeous beliefs hastened it with the increase in sacrifices to bring back the pleasure of the gods.

Ren, I will see you online 12-22-2012 and we can celebrate the new cycle

Maybe on the 20th we should ask some of our Aussie and Kiwi members if the world has ended :P

I'd like to see it, too....

Looks really cool from the trailer...

But I don't put too much stock in the Mayans....

Heck 2012 wasn't the end for them.....

So, what do they know? They're already gone!

Huggs..

Donna Jean......LOL!

The Myans of the Classical period (the time of the great cities) might be gone but as a race they still exist. They are one of the many indigenous tribes of Mexico and the surrounding area.

The movie was excellent. Great special effects, decent acting and a good story. In the end though it's only a movie though it is good.

You know, you were right. I was amazed about how good this movie was. Do I think this could possibly happen? I dunno...if it does...then bye bye school loans. But if not..then oh well. I think it's happy and sad all at once nearing the end. But good movie. Thanks for sharing this Chelsy, cause I was certainly planning to overlook it. You know..let it wait in my netflix que until 2012 actually rolled around...and then surprise...it's the same day of the movie's end date. Anyway...

lol

Thanks.

I just saw this movie today. Pretty awesome. Special effects were pretty top-notch. I also didnt like all the last minute escapes, way to predictable, but overall the movie was good, and it carried a moral.

i dont personally buy into the 2012 theory, so when 12.22.12 rolls around expect me to say "the world ended yesterday." laugh.gif

I watched it....lots of fun and edge of your seat action....

But, I'll not worry too much, because if you have a 3 year car payment, the banks won't let the world end until it's all paid off!....LOL

I thought it was Ok, nothing memorable though. Just like a greatest hits package of the disaster genre.

Dec 21 is my parents anniversary. Infact, Dec 23 2012, the alternate date believed by some experts, is my 24th. Would be one hell of an end of the world party lol.

      I love high heels, as a man. I like wearing them outdoors, listening to the sound of heels in the walk, it drives me excited. However, I don't have the gut to wear it in public, so what I do is bringing the female outfit and the heels, going to a rural area where there's no one around, like construction sites or countryside ( at night of course), wearing them and try to walk or even run with them. Things get even more excited when there are sound of cars or motorcycles coming near, especially when I am quite a range from my car, I have to run as fast as I can and get into the car before they see a man wearing high heels. It always makes my day. And rarely, it doesn't get better when I nearly sprain my ankle trying to run in heels.

      Thank you.  I know in time it will get better and I’m normally a very positive person.   I just need to formulate my planB and find some security for my future.  Luckily I have a couple plans to help lower my bill load and allow me to afford to move out eventually.  
    • Krisvm
      I think that may be the same one I am trying to get in contact with!     I know that and that is why I have tried to be patient but now it has been over a month and nothing I am getting a little concerned.
    • Krisvm
      I would say in the longer term try to be patient with yourself. One thing I have struggled with is that I want to keep moving faster and faster but some things do take a long time to work through. Also try to take care of yourself afterwards. Therapy may not seem like it but often you are doing a lot of mental work so a bit of selfcare after can do you the world of good.
    • tracy_j
      I get where you are coming from on this Samantha as my best description is 'I am not a man'. I sometimes think it strange with myself as I have a male body I don't despise, just think it could be better. It works which is the main thing for me.  I agree with Mary in that I am me (Ok a slight twist on her meaning maybe). I am who I am and mentally far more attuned to the set of women than that of men. I did not really ever adapt to male culture either and never understood the 'us and them' thing. I still question myself, but if there has to be a divide I am female. It's not really down to clothes or looks. It is who I am deep inside.   Tracy

      I can only echo what others have said Laura - any therapist can only reflect on the information you give them, so be brutally blunt about your feelings and why you are there, and don't expect too much after your first session 🤗 I talked for over 2 hours and the only comment I got was an assurance that this was not a mental health issue and that they would support me as best as they could. I had to stop myself from hugging her as I left lol.
    • Susan R
      Great question and it seemed a deceptively easy one at first until you really think about it in depth.   Speaking only for myself, I believe it has more to do with what I think of myself and what role I have always desired within my circle family, friends, acquaintances and community.   When I was four, I had no interest in being like my dad or younger brother.  I liked what my mom did...being the caregiver and glue within our family.  I desired to be like her whether it was in the kitchen, shopping at the store, taking us places, etc... I also wanted to be like my two older sisters.  They were always doing things I enjoyed and when I was eventually included in their "dressing up" activities, it was then I felt like one of the girls.  I felt like myself as others have stated.  It never changed throughout my entire life.  I pretended it did but I always felt fake when presenting as male.  Now I'm living day to day in my natural role as a women along with presenting as one as well.  I'm known by my family, friends, acquaintances and community as Susan which is how it should have been all along.   Just my 2¢, Susan R🌷

      It will get easier in time Shawna. I find in times of stress that keeping very busy helps. I am out like a light.   Tracy

      It's interesting you say that DeeDee. I remember a year or two back when in my work clothes (so male) buying some more sporty womens leggings from Topshop and asking the assistant about sizing. She said that quite a few men bought them. It seems to work both ways.   Tracy
    • ShawnaLeigh
      340am.  Can’t seem to get a full nights sleep since coming out to some of my family and my wife.  Still have deeper stress and anxiety about it.  So tired all the time now.   might as well get up and do my work out and get the day rolling.  Coffee soon! i hope everyone has a good day.  
    • DeeDee
      No worries Anna, you are going to need that brolly now we are into winter! I have not been keeping well recently, but am starting to feel better so I intend to start going back out again next week - I have actually missed my morning jogs, and mens running tights are just socially acceptable leggings so it feels nice wearing them out in public too. 😉
    • DeeDee
      I agree with Mary, this is a really good question Samantha. Once you take sex organs out of the equation, because a mastectomy or hysterectomy do not stop a woman being a woman, all you are left with is the gender stereotypes in society (women like shopping, men like fixing cars) which we also know don't mean anything really or we wouldn't be here, and your personal feelings about where you feel most comfortable. But it is definitely a "what does it mean to you?" 😊

      I never understood the stark contrast between the two grandmothers that I’ve had in my life because both of them lived through the Great Depression. The unapologetic one was like many I’ve heard of in that she was afraid of doing without. So afraid that it became entirely selfish. And of course she passed this on to my father who was the favorite and ended up playing favorites, preferring my brother to me. I was the one who was constantly blamed for things my brother did, or for things other school children did.   A couple of examples. My brother locked me out of a building one day when I was about to pee my pants and laughed at me from the other side. I tried to get my mother’s attention by knocking but she was vacuuming so she didn’t hear. I knocked harder and in my panic broke the window. I felt bad enough about it and still peed my pants but I was blamed for everything. When I pointed out that it wouldn’t have happened if my brother had not locked me out, my bank account was drained to pay for the window while my brother wasn’t punished at all. I only had $30 in it but that forced me to close the account while my brother was accruing interest and kept rubbing it in.   Another example was when I was given a basketball in school by another student who scratched their name off and wrote mine on it. I brought it home and happily showed it off to my parents. Instead of them being happy for me they called around and decided that I had stolen it which resulted in a severe beating and the confiscation of the ball. I also got in trouble with the school and still didn’t understand why. I found out later that this “friend” set me up and the ball actually belonged to the school. I didn’t know about how to tell if it was a school ball, I was just a happy kid. But these injustices are still with me and when I confronted my dad about them he didn’t apologize either, he just waved it off dismissively and said he had forgotten all about it. The point was that I hadn’t forgotten about it and I wanted an apology. So when I encounter attitudes like this in people or management practices I just can’t abide by them. Nobody has the right to mistreat someone and then just cling to their arrogance about it.    My maternal grandmother was also in the Great Depression but her memories of that time were far different. She didn’t fear doing without. Her memories were not about being hungry but encounters with comical people who lived nearby. Her whole demeanor was completely different. It was one of benevolence and sharing her love of life. She was not attached to money in a way that harmed others. She spared no expense to show us kids all kinds of wonderful experiences. It was about family not greed. Her attitude was one of plenty instead of despair. I really think this had a lot to do with how much richer her life was and it was always more fun on that side of the family. I actually look up to her and my aunts a lot more than anybody else. Their energy is so much better.

      Congrats I love going to my therapist she is my rock Just be truthful and you will figure out what is right for you

      To me it feels right my wife ask me why I CD? This is before I got married. And I thought about it and the answer is I feel right. This is me the hair the dress the makeup the shoes and of course the breast forms. It’s like I walk around in a black and white movie, and when I dress it’s all color. Like the Wizard of Oz and I’m  Julie Garland off to see the wizard. To get my HRT because I can’t go back to that dark place again
