Independence Day, The Day After Tomorrow, Godzilla, and now 2012; I think it's safe to say Roland Emmerich may be a little obsessed with the end of the world. It's kind of his thing. He's the master in the modern "epic" the way Paul Verehoeven was in sci fi about 20 years ago.

This movie was completely ridiculous, but it made me laugh and that counts for something. It was really funny. I can't believe they got this many known actors to participate; though John Cusack does seem like he was phoning it in on this one.

The best way I can describe this movie is to tell you to envision one of those crappy SyFy Channel movies, but with a bigger budget and people you actually recognize.

Diagnosis: Thumbs up.

I don’t know when I originally wrote this, but put it on the site for your reading pleasure on March 30, 2011.

2012 was the best worst movie I've seen in a while. This movie was over-the-top bad, but it was also wildly entertaining at times. I was cracking up when the plane takes off and narrowly escapes the disintegrating L.A., and the director/producers/writers must've known this part was awesome, because they decided to repeat it over and over again as Cusack and crew flee Yellowstone Park, and finally Las Vegas. Couple this with horrible dialogue, statings of the obvious, and grusomely large plot holes, and 2012 churns out a wild ride in the insanely bad. I give this movie thumbs 75 percent up not because it was even that good, but because I have to admit, I was entertained most of the way, and I fortunately fell asleep through all the boring parts.
