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.

      An interesting subject. Probably a lifetimes work there!   Tracy

      Yes I agree to staying online. At least you have friends you can relate to here which is good, epecially if things get tough.   Tracy
    • tracy_j
      Good luck! I don't know how well it will relate to your job but I have a general link here which gives a flavour of things in the NHS.  It, and the links from it, may be a help. https://www.nhsemployers.org/retention-and-staff-experience/diversity-and-inclusion/policy-and-guidance/sexual-orientation   Private companies do not usually publish their policies online (as far as I know) but NHS trust and probably local government documents are likely to be available. A quick look found this for Newcastle: http://www.newcastle-hospitals.org.uk/downloads/policies/Personnel/GenderTransitionatWorkPolicy201808.pdf   I had a little look and found some info which private companies give but it would take a bit of searching to find details specific to gender, but may exist although maybe only in large companies. I did come across a council document though:   https://wolverhampton.moderngov.co.uk/documents/s36286/Appendix - Transgender Guidance Notes.pdf   Tracy

      I'm sure as Carolyn Marie said, most of us had doubts.    Me personally, I had a lot of doubts the months before I got on hrt. But by the time I got it, I reasoned that I'd never be happy to keep going on as a man. So I took the plunge, and so far transition has been pretty gentle to me. I'm very content with my choice and where I see transition taking me now.    Really at the end of the day, it's your decision though. If you aren't already, maybe consider talking with a gender therapist, or find a community meeting local to you. Some ways to get some perspective.

      Hello, Crystal Elaine, and welcome to Trans Pulse.  I want to start by congratulating you on being open minded, non-judgemental, loving and supportive.  It is wonderful to hear about, as its not as common an occurrence as we would hope.   What you've done together so far is a great start.  Other suggestions I can make include letting him dress and sleep in a nightgown (some have sexual relations this way, and I hear it can really invigorate a couple's sex life).  Helping him with makeup, buying a wig, wearing small items of jewelry (that he can hide from others, like an ankle bracelet) can also help with feeling feminine.   I'm sure others will have great ideas, too.  Thanks for asking, and best wishes to you both.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      Many of us have doubts about virtually every aspect of our transition.  Having doubts and questions about HRT is not only normal, it is logical and sensible.  That's because HRT carries risks, as does any prescription medication, and those risks can be significant, especially if you have some types of pre-existing conditions.   My advice is to read as much as you can from reputable sites and publications, starting with the WPATH Standards of Care.  There is a whole lot of good information about it, including on this web site.  Being informed and knowledgeable is important.  I've had to educate some of my own doctors, which is not an unusual thing.   If you have specific questions, we'll try to answer them, but we aren't medical professionals, so be guided by your doctors and by your own informed mind.   Carolyn Marie

      Hey everyone,    Thanks for all the advice from my last post.    Today, I went to an endo doctor, and they say I might be able to hopefully start hormones in the next couple of weeks. When they told me that, I was excited but still hesitant. I always keep thinking that I'm going to have regrets or something. Is that normal? Did any of you have this feeling when starting hormones?    Thanks in advance!!

      My husband recently discovered by complete accident that he likes cross dressing. When I say by accident, I had seen videos of boyfriends/husbands doing their girlfriends/wives makeup, and I asked him to do mine. After he was done, I asked to do his. To both of our surprise, he really liked it. Now we are pretty adventurous in the bedroom, and we decided this could be a fun role play (my husband is into domination/humiliation). However, he didn't feel dominated or humiliated. He felt empowered and "pretty" to use his own words. For the rest of the night, he wore one of my dresses and a full face of makeup. The next day, we went out and bought a wig to complete his look. That night, I taught him how to do his own makeup, he put on one of my dresses and his wig, and he absolutely loved it. Unfortunately, it made me feel extremely uncomfortable. When I looked at him, I didn't feel like I was looking at my husband. I felt as though I had lost my husband.    After discussing this with my husband, he explained that he just liked not having to feel masculine. He likes getting in touch with his feminine side. Now my husband is a correctional officer who grew up in a strict southern baptist household. We have been exploring his sexuality together recently, and he has come to the decision that he not attracted to men, but he does still like to dress as a woman. He does not feel as though he is a woman, he is just tired of feeling like he has to live up to the standard masculine social norms.    We decided that I may have been uncomfortable because we just jumped straight into it instead of easing in. So we have decided to work up to him completely cross dressing by doing things that are deemed feminine. Last night, we did a foot scrub, painted our toe nails, and did a facial mask. I would love suggestions of other activities we can do to not only help me ease into the idea of my husband cross dressing, but to also allow him to do what makes him feel comfortable and helps him relax. I would also love any advice on what has helped anyone else through the same situation.   I love my husband dearly, and it's been a while since I've seen my husband that happy and relaxed. I am trying to support him the best that I can, but I am also confused by this.

      Hey Pixie... honestly I am so lost right now, but I  know this:  I have being dealing with other voices in my head that are not helpful to me. If it was not for my Gender Therapist properly would of off myself. So If you feel confused getting a G.T is a great starting point. Good luck be safe and keep us update  this site is a great sounding block and welcome
