It's pretty fascinating seeing the world get destroyed over and over. This shit looks, I mean, fucking ridiculous.

I love this type of shit (apocalypse, end of the world type shit) but this just looks corny. It will probably be fun, but I can guarantee it won't be good.

The Road is the end of the world movie to see this year. And also Antichrist.
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

2012: It's a Disaster!!!

I want to see this version of the movie infinitely more than the actual version.

My god............

Fucking. Brilliant.

Best Trailer of 09!
We often went to the cinema, the screen would light up and we would tremble, but also, increasingly often, Madeleine and I were disappointed. The images had dated, they jittered, and Marilyn Monroe had gotten terribly old. We were sad, this wasn't the film we had dreamed of, this wasn't the total film that we all carried around inside us, this film that we would have wanted to make, or, more secretly, no doubt, that we would have wanted to live.

Five Minute scene here.

it just occurred to me that this story has no way of resolving itself
i mean, how are they going to battle everything destroying itself and also not having ground

That's a logical question. Unfortunately in most action films you have to leave your brain at the door. I'm sure they will find a way, but it won't be riveting or creative enough for you guys. I'm still looking forward to this spectacle but I know I'm really going to have to suspend disbelief.
The Beatles know Jesus Christ has returned to Earth and is in Los Angeles.

This was one of the most fun experiences I've ever had at the theater.  DO NOT WAIT FOR DVD!  It's the sort of movie that can only be entertaining when it's 30 feet tall.  Emmerich spends a little too long on the build-up, and there are a few too many repetitive scenes of tearful phone conversations in the moments before some peripheral character is claimed by the apocalypse, but once shit starts to get real, you will be along for the ride.  It's just a gift that keeps on giving; I saw it with two friends, and we spent two hours at a restaurant afterward doing nothing but cracking up as we recalled all the insane, ridiculous, brilliant nonsense that filled the two-and-a-half hour running time.

Highlights:
- Outrunning the collapse of Los Angeles in a limo.
- Outrunning a nuclear-sized (three mushroom clouds worth!) volcanic eruption in an RV.
- John Cusack, on foot, catching up to an airplane taking off and jumping on board at the last moment.
- President Danny Glover's last words (possible Sanford & Son reference... awesome either way).
- Chiwetel Ejiofor's calculations always being wrong.
- Elliot Gould's totally unnecessary character.
- Constant (doritos) product (bentley) placement (sony vaio).

Winner:
- Russian guy launching his kid up onto the ramp as it closes. I couldn't breathe, I was laughing so hard.  I almost died.

Overall score: Infinite-and-a-half stars (out of 4)

Where was he? I didn't catch him.

He was one of the musicians on the cruise ship that could have been cut out without affecting the story in any way.

Well, now I want to watch this. But only with you. That's one of the funnest reviews I've read.

Wait, sorry, I meant George Segal.  I always mix up those two.

Ha. When I was watching 2012, George Segal came onscreen and I thought, "Man, if I'd never seen The Long Goodbye, I would never have known that dude was pretty fucking cool." then I realized I was mixing up those very same actors and then I realized I do that a lot.
Maybe every day is Saturday morning.
