I am going to recycle this post because the number of the End of the World movies being shown on various channels is mind-blowing and I have always been a fan of this movie genre! I love these movies and find them entertaining and I hope people take them with a grain of salt! I have blogged on this topic for the past few years and if you would like to read them I will link to them below! Enjoy the post!
The past few years we have been awash with end of the world movies of
all stripes and now that we have entered into the year 2012 many videos
are covering this same subject. I try to watch all of the movies I can
even if they appear to be stinkers in my opinion ( and this is due to
the fact that I fell asleep during some movies) such as: Stonehenge
Apocalypse, 2012, Titanic 2, and the Chaos Experiment to name a few.
Some of the better movies that I have enjoyed are: Knowing, Blindness, The Andromeda Strain, The China Syndrome
(wait, those last two are "oldies" but I love them!), and I even liked
Volcano, I am not sure why but I did. These movies seem to be the hot
ticket right now because some are fearful of December 2012 being the end
of the world according to the Mayan Calendar. By the way, I have been to the Mayan jungle in the Yucatan and visited the ruins and climbed the Chichen Itza
pyramid before they closed it to the public, in fact, I was able to
climb or go into many ruins back in the day when they were privately
owned. Now that they are state owned you can only walk around the sites
but well worth the visit, however, I digress. I like to look at things
in a more practical manner and I found a video that is cool even though
it is not considered science fiction and it presents some very
interesting ideas. The video is entitled "There's No Tomorrow 2012" and I
hope you enjoy watching it.
