Last night in our growth group I talked about the end times (yea…about the 2nd coming of Jesus, Revelation, death, afterlife, resurrection, etc.). I described in detail the mysteries of the end, exactly how it was going down, the date in which you could expect it to take place, and how to prepare yourself for the climactic ending. Yea…it was that good! I’m sorry you missed it. If you would like a copy of my notes with these answers, just send me $29.99 and it can all by yours
Which leads me to review a movie out now called 2012. It is about the end of the world that is supposedly going to take place on December 21, 2012. This movie was, in a word…RIDICULOUS.
There might be something to be said for the special effects, but the overall script was LAME!! Very cheesy dialogue (e.g., a couple having problems in their relationship and just as the boyfriend says, “I feel like there is something tearing us a part” the ground opens up underneath them from an earthquake.)
It focuses on one family (John Cusack is the lead) who defies death A MILLION TIMES which is ridiculous. I totally get the suspension of belief to move a story forward, but when it so ridiculous over and over again for 2 hours and 38 minutes (which is how long it is!) it moves from suspense and tension to slap-stick comedy. In the end, the dialogue is full of trite and comedic statements while at the same time 6 BILLION PEOPLE ON THE PLANET EARTH PERISH!! It is absurd.
But…my wife liked it.
