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 waited until it came out on DVD. Enjoyed the movie, do not want to say anything further that might be a spoiler for someone else.

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.

      Hi,   I went for a makeover day and photoshoot recently. Is it okay if I share some photos from it and get your opinions on some things?

      I just feel like i am crazy... i keep doubting myself constently. I think i am trans, but everyone says no.  Maybe i am just confused and lost in a sea of raw emotions.  I keep feeling like i am trans, but i dont honestly know anymore. Maybe i am just confused myself, or just delusional.   Maybe i should just stop and expect me beginning so uncomfortable in my own skin.    Sorry for the vent. I just feel like it the only place i can express myself, i guess.   Thanks for reading. Sorry for the vent.

      Thanks Vicky,  I know I have a long way to go, just started this a few weeks ago. I am just so damn happy that it came together as well as it did. Far from perfect, but that’s just me. It’s amazing the amount of relief and happiness I’m feeling right now. And the wife seems to approve so that helps. 😁😁😁

      A word of hope and dread, I began my Transition 20 years ago as a CD, which lasted 12 years, and FULL TIME with all the the work 8 years ago, and I am still not finished.  Don't worry about it though, you are living your truth and that is the most important.  A happy, friendly attitude with people will more than offset any little defects we have, but that is the same for all our life.

      For the first time I actually put everything together. From the gaff and false boobies 😁 to all the makeup. I’ve got to be honest I saw  my body profile and almost cried. Still need more practice with the makeup but it wasn’t to bad for my first attempt. Also need to grow my hair more or get a wig.

      Gooseberries grow best up north.  In fact, a bush won't grow berries, if it there wasn't at least one hard freeze over the winter time.

      Ive never heard of Gooseberries, I must try them now.

      We have heat, and a wide variation. all within a 20min drive. =). In the winter, you can play at the beach, drive 20-30 mins inland and play in the snow =).

      Ace of Base did a cover of Bananarama's song "Cruel Summer." in 1998. The Original song from Bananarama came out in 1984, which dates me back to 18yrs old when it was in the "Karate Kid." Lots of nostalgia for me .

      That sounds so perfect I bet you could make a lot of nice desserts with all the fresh fruit!
