Movie: 2012

2012-tomatoes

Back from the movie. It was indeed two and a half hours long. But it has non stop action all the way. The destruction of Los Angeles was amazing. The special effects were jaw dropping. My only complaint was the camera works and lighting toward the end were a little “handy-cam” like. It felt like there were two groups of camera crew shooting the movie. One was the Hollywood team and another, a bunch of film school students with a shoe string budget. Please watch it in the cinema. It’s well worth the price of your ticket. Will definitely get the Blu-ray for all the making-of features. One of the most enjoyable movie of the year.

Rotten Tomatoes rated 2012 a horrible 38%. I think most of the film critics there went in and expected something along Schindler’s List or The English Patient. Come on! It’s a disaster movie, filled with spectacular visual effects. Realistic story and moving relationships are the last thing on the plate. You wouldn’t go in and watch Too Fast Too Furious and expect to be moved to tears now would you?

    I am planning to see this one.

    But now unleashing delaying tactics, because those cinemas right now are going to be full!

    I’ll probably wanna watch it another time at the cinema. Just to enjoy the audio and visual again. When the earthquake hit Los Angeles, I tell you – my jaw dropped. The special effects. Awesome!
