Even more depressing: life on Earth won't even see the 'death of the sun', the sun is getting more luminous and hotter by 10% every 1 billion years or so. So in one billion years the Earth will be too hot to sustain life. ^^

Darn, I was planning on having a wicked good party at that point in time.

If the world ends in 2012, that's a bit short. But if it is ending millions or billions of years from now, I can accept that. If the human race is still alive, we should be able to get off the planet.

So, I'll do my part to contribute while I'm here.

Saying than in a billion year, there will be not live on Earth, might be going too fast to a conclusion. Bug and bacteria are know to be able to survive difficult environnement, and small animals might be able to addapt .

Woah! The movie was impressive! The crazy man in Yellow Stone was the one that had the most awesome death! Nothing like a good old vulcano death. The death by tsunami and earthquakes were boring.

Surprisingly enough, I had quite a bit of fun with this film. The destruction porn was certainly amazing, but I was surprised by how much I did not dislike the basic story. Crazy science and cliché secularist humanitarian speeches aside, there was some honest, albeit hopelessly naive, emotional depth to the feature. Sure the dog inexplicably lives (yet again), but the Black scientist talking to his Indian friend (I'm sure they had names, but I doubt I was supposed to remember them) during his final moments was quite nice (as well as numerous other brief communications that are always cut-off right before the characters can say goodbye).

All in all, this was truly a fun film, and I would recommend it to anyone that likes popcorn cinema (I expect this will be my guilty pleasure film of the year (much the same as Speed Racer from last year was a great guilty pleasure)).

Err...what? Sorry, does not compute.

You do know that this movie was panned by both environmentalists and global warming skeptics alike and was even pegged as 'being to climate science what Frankenstein was to heart surgery'?

Some points of contention:
Spoiler:

Sorry, but if I want to watch a scientifically accurate movie, I'll make sure the director is not someone that goes by the name of Roland Emmerich. I'd still go to enjoy his now trademark scenes of widespread destruction and the amazing CGI, but that'd be all. I mean, that guy did cast extraterrestrials that could jump from planet to planet with death rays big enough to vaporize Empire State Building yet were unable to come up with their own equivalent of McAfee or Kaspersky.

And let's not even mention Godzilla - the Gojira fans might bristle.

Also the imitation of Arnold had me cracking.

Uhm, you should go back and read my post again, I mentioned the classic television drama The Day After, a sci-fi movie depicting what would happen in a small Kansas town after a nuclear war, not The Day After Tomorrow, the other Emmerich disaster title not as good as 2012 or ID.

^No problem. If you haven't seen The Day After, I do recommend the title. Sure, it is a bit...dated (and you may be to young to get in to the whole Cold War = End of the World mindset in which this film was made), but it is still a worthy sci-fi picture in many respects ahead of its time.

Things in the film [not mentioned but found in the internet]:

- How to market to the Chinese (give them praises and accuracy)
- Mecca (Hajj: The Holiest Site for Muslims) excluded from the movie (except he didn't have problems destroying other religious places) since the director doesn't want a fatwa issued on him...

I find it strange that after 1 month everything was ok. If all vulcanos erupted earth would be in nuclear winter or so.

^I think the tidal waves and moving continents probably helped to settle down the volcanos spewing forth ash, but I agree that doesn't really account for the gigantic ash cloud that spread from California and went on to cover all of America (and presumably the world).

The movie's disastrous effects is basically millions of years of changes compressed into 2 hours, or a few months in the story.

And alot of the effects are completely impossible, but if I take a step back from a scientific perspective, the movie is quite enjoyable.

Not really "end of the world", just the end of many people. Earth's crust Displacement and shifting...I doubt it'll ever cause an end to the world.

In my personal opinion, the movie sucked @ss.

I went not that long ago to see it due to my sibling
begging me to tag along. I thought, "Well, its a good plot
and the graphics look killer" as anyone would probably agree...

But I just didn't enjoy or take it seriously.
In fact, I found myself becoming more irritated
by the scenes and characters more and more
as the minutes ticked by. On a rating I'd give it a -8/10. >___<;

(Graphics would get full marks, though.)

It's a basic hollywood plot that no one cares about. Besides that, the visuals in this movie are amazing. Blew my mind to see it on the big white, I highly recommend you go watch too.
If you're wondering what the HD age is good for then this movie would be your answer.

When I saw the preview to this movie, I thought "Great, an excuse to waste 2 and a half hours on a graphic montage of the world ending" But I might go see it with some friends maybe..Or I'll watch it in 2013!

2012 is a prediction... which is true and not the same as other 'disaster like' movie...the time is near... we need to repent and be prepared to meet our creator...
