New On DVD: 2012

So we’re going to keep it short and sweet here. 2012 gives us over the top CGI and nothing related to the actual Mayan calendar “predictions” of the end of the world. Yes there was a plenty of action scenes, and keeps you entertained through out the films running time (that was probably too long), however, there was no substance. Pretty much everything that happens was shown in the original trailers.

The highlight, and the main reason to see 2012, was Woody Harrelson as the crazy conspiracy theorist voicing his crazy thoughts over the airwaves to anyone that will listen. It was great to see him back on the big screen and, along with Zombieland and Kingpin, this is one of his greatest roles. The rest of the actors’… ehh.

Chad: Breakout role for the young Shawn Spencer from Psych.

Why do movies about the end of the world feel the need to saturate the entire screen with computer graphics of tsunamis, crumbling flaming architecture, and other catastrophic phenomenon’s?

Our combined rating? Go see The Day After Tomorrow instead, which is basically the same movie, and have fun looking for Kirsten Dunst as an extra.
