The end of the world movie to end them all. To say 2012 is epic is like saying Amanda Peet is pretty—it’s a huge understatement. The film starts by giving you a history refresher about the Mayan calendar which abruptly ends sometime around December 2012. No, it’s not when we reach a spiritual evolution or invent time travel… it’s good old fashioned fire and brimstone apocalypse. From Roland Emmerich who brought us the doomsday hits The Day After Tomorrow and Independence Day, 2012 has that same balance between world wide devastation and the struggle of individuals. Get blown away by the special effects as the Vatican crumbles and LA sinks into the ocean while you get sucked in by the plight of a the few brave survivors. Starring John Cusack, Amanda Peet, Woody Harrelson and Danny Glover.
