Knowing was a pretty good movie.

Nemo's Brother: Al Gore and the Total Fark left insisted that we all go see the Day After Tomorrow. It was what was to happen if Bush was re-elected.

We watched Day After Tomorrow one day in my high school robotics class (I think it was one of the days that the teacher was out and had no lesson plan that a substitute could handle). I spent the whole class period facepalming. What was better, though, was when we had a class "discussion" afterwards, I found that most of my classmates thought it was a documentary and that was what was really going to happen. Granted, we were mostly 14-16 years old and the class was known for attracting druggies, but still... And it didn't matter how many times I tried to explain to them how wrong the movie was, they weren't going to listen. Because they clearly knew it was a documentary and obviously the makers of the "documentary" were geniuses and clairvoyant, and the AP student who regularly carried weather books with her had no clue about the weather and climate at all. It was a wonder I didn't leave that day with brain damage from hitting my head on my desk and the wall repeatedly.

jakepowers: 2012 was the worst movie in history.

Not even close. Worst "science/apocalypse" movie, maybe behind The Core, but it's not the worst movie in history. Hell Battlefield Earth with dance dance Travolta was more of an abomination than 2012.

Not an apocalypse movie. It's a post-apocalyptic movie. Totally different genre.

What an Apocalypse might look like

"The God Particle

Formerly called Collider, this is J.J. Abrams' next mind-frak. Basically, the Large Hadron Collider goes wrong, and causes the WHOLE PLANET EARTH TO DISAPPEAR. Poof. The only people left are the crew aboard the International Space Station. (So, sort of like the pilot for Odyssey 5.) It's being written by Oren Uziel (Mortal Kombat: Rebirth) and directed by newbie Julius Onah."

I did a double-take when I saw the name of the new director-- he's got the same name as one of my college roommates. Wait, turns out it IS my college roommate. Huh. Good on you Julius, I guess?

The Core sucked, but Ebert's review is a thing of beauty. 

"a scene that cries out from its very vitals to be cut from the movie and made into ukulele picks"

Deep Core was awesome only because of how it killed off Wheaton.

Wow! I'm totally going to have to check out Day of the Dolphin! With George C. Scott even!

/ Thanks!

2012 was one of the funniest movies I'd ever seen. I laughed until I cried in the theatre. And Cusack was like some guy playing in god mode - yes, drive through a falling building, just beating the crumbling ground behind you...hah hah hah!

TFA has Outbreak, but was it really that bad? Good cast, plot within the bounds of reasonableness, and Donald Sutherland saying "Billy, what are you stuuupid or something?"

Thankfully the greatest movie ever filmed was omitted because it is just that, the greatest movie ever filmed.
