Dont get me wrong here, I love scifi movies, disaster movies, and movies in general. But how this flic got more than 1 star rating for the movie itself is very strange. It was one of the worst movies EVER. Its so stupid that you felt like screaming at the characters in the movie that they are RETARDS.
I felt lobotomized when I left the cinema.
Excellent effects and sound tho, and it it worth watching just for that one big explotion

Iím having trouble thinking of a sci-fi film that DOESNíT have a similar theme, not to mention a ton of popular non-sci-fi. I don't recall this much furor over "Dances With Wolves" which has a similar theme and even rougher on the army (the soldiers in Avatar are mercenaries).
I've seen the Avatar and talked to a lot of people who have seen the film and I don't recall any complaints of being preached to. I figure this complaint comes from people who just donít like Cameron.
On another note - closer to this thread:
When you see 2012, the most obvious video sequence is the last section of the movie - during the flooding room sequences. There are lots of other instances but you'll really notice it at that point.
My overall review would be:
Yes, It is a popcorn movie and a really good one. As far as script, it's "Citizen Kane" compared to movies like "Transformers 2".

Was this better than "The Day After Tommorow"? That movie put me to sleep.

^^ I didn't care for 'Day After Tomorrow' and somewhat boring, but I thought '10,000 B.C.' is just flat out awful, even worse than 'Godzilla'. So, yes, I think '2012' is better and more entertaining.

I loved E's little paragraph on the extra "Roland Emmerich: The Master of the Modern Epic". I can't stop chuckling, well done.
Still and all, I will be checking this out, but it can only be at best a "guilty pleasure".
10,000 BC was on a par with all the other films dealing with pre recorded history scenarios. Ugh! The only movie of this type I can remember being worth a viewing was Quest for Fire. Can anyone think of any others?

I don't know, I loved Independence Day and thought The Day After Tomorrow and 10,000 BC were both entertaining enough. Maybe I just tend to not overthink my movie experiences and just go along for the ride. I am not the type of person who sits there in a movie and starts pointing out every hole in the plotline. Hell, I enjoyed GI Joe and Transformers 2 also. What can I say, I'm a simple kind of guy.My Home Theater
